Hello, I am 24 years old and interested in correcting my teeth. I have had braces before (when i was around 15-16, for a year), however, my teeth aren’t aligned properly. I don’t have an overbite or under bite.One of my lower central incisors is crooked.So the bottom 4 incisors arent in a proper order.My bottom canines are big and closer to the incisors than the molars.Also, my upper 6 teeth are a bit huge.
My dentist said that i have a good profile and don’t need braces for my upper teeth, but i will need to extract the C1 lateral incisor from my lower teeth (to avoid crowding) and have braces added. Apart from this extraction, 2 wisdom teeth need to be removed as well.
My question is : wouldn’t there be no symmetry since only one tooth is being removed and also wouldn’t there be a gap between my lower incisors? Would you suggest a similar treatment? your thoughts please and thanks in advance.
