Hi everyone I have severely crooked teeth and I’m trying to find out what the best method for fixing them would Be. I want to to ask if you think metal braces would be able to straighten my teeth and also would a bridge be okay to fill the gap ( missing teeth ) Or would you have any recommendations for what treatment you think I would need I’m in the process of having teeth removed and the cavities fixed thanks in advance

Good day

The first step would be to have all the cavities fixed and broken teeth removed. Thereafter a referral to an orthodontist must be made, so that a comprehensive treatment plan can be drawn up. This will tell you if any more extractions are needed to align teeth, or if the space available is sufficient. If the gaps at the back, can't be closed orthodontically, then the plan will include bridges or implants after the ortho has been completed.
But the first step would be to get the mouth into a condition that can support braces. If there are cavities and/or poor oral hygiene, then the orthodontic treatment might only worsen the situation.
