I have 2 baby teeth where my adult canine teeth should be. The adult teeth are impacted up very high. They are actually perfectly placed and not anywhere touching any nerves or disrupting any bones. I was told the best option would be to have my baby teeth extracted and have braces put on my whole mouth as well as drill up into my mouth and slowly bring my adult teeth into their proper place. I know this is the best option for me to keep my given teeth. However, I was wondering if putting in a bridge would be another available option. I do not have a lot of money or any dental insurance so this is a very costly method and I know bridges are a lot cheaper. I’m also 28 years old and I would really not like to have braces for the next 3 years of my life. My childhood/adolescent dentist swore i would never need them, which is why I am just now finding this out. I’m not sure implants would be an option because I’m not sure there is enough bone from the baby teeth. I would just like some advice on getting a bridge in place of a canine or any other cost effective options. Thank you!
