Hello Dr Hughes,
I am 17 years old and have two congenitally missing lateral incisors. I underwent orthodontic treatment and received a bridge on the NHS. I was extremely unhappy with this bridge as it was very conspicuous and unnatural looking. I then switched dentists where I received a much more natural looking bridge but I am still not entirely happy with it. I was wondering whether I am a suitable candidate for dental implants. My current dentist suggests that from my X-rays that I am not as the available gum space is too small, from what I can remember it measured roughly 3mm on the left and 3.5mm on the right. It would be great to get your advice on this. Thank you!
