Do I have two bottom teeth extracted to get Invisalign? Or do I get two implants/ Maryland bridges in the top? (photo)

Invisalign vs. Maryland bridges
Hi there,I tend to agree with Dr. Wendling's answer that traditional brackets and braces may be a better option for you. If you look at your profile picture/photo from the side, taking out two additional bottom teeth will make your chin look slightly smaller than it does not/your profile will not be as straight. Invisalign is not good at opening up spaces to the extent you would have to on the top; traditional braces are more predictable in moving roots of teeth that far.Best of luck!
