Full banded braces
Since my daughters 2 front teeth were broken , had root canals and bonding my question is the ortho is taking every precaution on those 2 front teeth even putting special brackets on the front. From what I am gathering, will they be full banded braces like back in the days? He said they will not look as good as the others but just curious if there is a special brace for that ?
It sounds as though your orthodontist is taking every precaution. With the bonding materials we have now I am sure they will hold quite well. It will be important to radiograph (x-ray) these teeth every six months to monitor the roots.
