How to prevent shifting teeth before implants placed
I'm glad you are concerned about maintaining the space for your eventual implant crown as adjacent teeth can move if there is nothing to prevent it. Since the area is in the front of your mouth, a temporary partial called a flipper can be used to maintain space, help shape the tissue and provide esthetics. It does have to be fabricated properly for this and a good restorative dentist should be able to do this for you. Good luck!
