So folks... here I am. I just finished a root canal and got the permanent crown on. I have already had a consultantion with an orthodontist and have come up with a tenative plan of action. I will be getting the ceramic braces on top and the metal on the bottom. (Figured I might as well attack the bottom if I am fixing the gap on top.) The first move will be the get the braces on. I am going to call the ortho on Monday to set that up. After that, sometime down the road, still not sure when, I will be referred to an oral surgeon to remove the baby tooth, attach a chain to the impacted k9 and hopefully pull that bad boy down and introduce her to my mouth. Judging by the x-rays and by reading some blogs, the impacted tooth seems to be in a good position. It is slightly crooked but I am confident that it has always wanted to be a part of my smile so it will come down. ;) It appears that the time for this varies so we will see. Next step... impalanting my lateral incisors once they front gap is closed.
Last thing... Day 1 photo.
Left side view. The teeth on this side are lined up pretty well. This is my audlt K9.
This is the problem child side. The K9 here is a baby and the teeth are more on top of each other.
Cheers and thumbs up folks! I'll update Monday!
