Hello- My 16 year old son has braces now. He is missing the two teeth on either side of his front teeth. Due to the fact that these teeth are missing, his canines came in above his front teeth and have caused the roots of the front teeth to be damaged and shorter. The orthodontist just told me today that may son may lose the two front teeth as well. I am so upset and worried about this. He won't be old enough for implants for quite some time. I have read up about options and a bonded bridge and it sounds like it would be good until he is old enough for implants. My question is, can a bonded bridge be done for all four front teeth, or is that too many? Thank you for any advice. If anyone has any experience with this I would appreciate hearing about it. Thank you.
