So around four years ago I had my left canine baby tooth removed and it never grew back so finally I went to the dentist while on vacation and found out I have an impacted canine tooth. The dentist told me about exposing it and having braces. However, I have to wait till I get home. My questions are should I do the braces thing or should I just have the canine removed and have an get an implant? Will my dental benefits I get though work end-up covering this because its not cosmetic?
