My daughter Has a milch tooth on #29. It will be extracted. Now she is fifteen years old and half. Orthodontics(braces) can close the missing premolar? The wisdom tooth#32 can shift to #31?
If I have not ansered this before, the answer is yes, depending on the relationship with the opposing teeth above. If your orthodontist says he can close the space then I am sure it will work.
