Would my teeth shift
I am having an implant placed where there wasn't need for a bone grapht; the area is at the top, distal from the mouth. My concern was with a gap there for 6 months would my teeth shift?
The dentist then fitted me for a retainer, adding to the cost. Was this a necessary step? He said the top jaw bone is softer than the bottom, where I have postponed an implant at this time and have not had a problem.
