    I am 22 years old, Ive had braces on for the past 5-6 years, whether it was metal or just visalign. I am missing my two "eye" teeth. Went to get a estimate on dental implants and now I have a problem. My "canine" tooths root is in the space for my "eye" tooth root. The dentist told me Id need to have either braces put back on for another two years to shift it in place, a dental bridge done for a faster result or even removing the canine tooth in general. I am sick and tired of braces.. What should I do???

    - sincerely,
    A person thats had enough

    Yes. If you want to place implants,you need to space for it by moving the roots orthodontically.
    The faster alternative as you were told is, to go for bridges.

    Pls upload a front pic of these teeth for better analysis.
