Look into getting an eye tooth implanted
view from below
I had the eye tooth on the right side of my mouth removed when I was 12 years old (21 years ago)and was due an appointment to have the other one removed a few weeks later due to overcrowding. There was a lot going on in our family at the time and I missed the appointment and didn't visit a dentist again until the age of 16. By that stage my two front teeth were sticking out and had been pushed to the right side.
I asked the dentist about having the other eye tooth removed to correct this and he told me he could remove another tooth just to the right of my front teeth and they would naturally fall into place, because he didn't want to put the cost off getting braces on my mother and that when I was grown up and able to pay for my own braces I could go about fixing my teeth myself.
I don't think this was a serious suggestion as it would have caused my two front teeth to placed completely on the right side of my mouth, which I would find even more distressing.
My teeth pose no problems to my health but I hate smiling as I feel my teeth are so unsightly. I have been looking around on the internet to see if anyone else had the same problem, and also, if it is wise to have the other eye tooth. I have read that having an eye tooth removed can be a bad idea as it can affect the structure of your face.
I am wondering if it would be advised to have the second eye tooth removed at my age (33) or if I should look into getting an eye tooth implanted on the right side an have a different tooth removed, or if that would even be possible? Do you think I could get my teeth straightened out and would it be a very costly or long procedure?
Thank you for your time
