24 y/o with baby tooth intact and no adult tooth
Hi, I am 24 y/o with baby tooth intact and no adult tooth, wondering what other options there are besides getting an implant for a baby tooth that has not fallen out, and there is no adult tooth below it. The tooth is on the bottom left (#20 I think).
I currently have braces on all teeth (no bracket on the baby) and I think my orthodontist is concerned that when I get the braces off this summer the rest of the teeth will shift into that area. Is it possible to place a crown on top of the baby tooth? As a grad student on loans, I'm really not trying to pay $3000 plus for an implant, if I truly don't need to.
