Tooth extraction, move to cover gap or implant?
I have just had my second premolars removed (or whatever the 5th tooth back is on the bottom). They were baby teeth, and the adult teeth never formed for those. I'm 25 years old and I had braces when I was younger so I don't want to mess up my bite or anything, but I don't want to get an implant.
Would an orthodontist be able to utilize my wisdom teeth to close the gap? It makes sense to me that that would work, but my dentist is a huge fan of the implant. I trust it's the best option, but I still don't like the idea of it. If I can't get the gap to close through orthodontics, I am leaning towards a removable retainer with fake teeth to keep the bite the same.
