Hello, Braces are recommended if you are unhappy with your bite and position of your teeth. You may notbe able to eliminate the space of a missing tooth and will not change the shape of your teeth. Your options for tooth replacement include fixed bridges and implants for a solution that does not require removal daily. A clinical exam with X-rays will give you the best ability to diagnose your options. Plan a visit to the orthodontist to discuss braces and the expected results. I am glad to look at a photo and assist you further. Thank you for your inquiry.
Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query. The missing tooth can be restored with either bridge(FPD) by taking support from the adjacent teeth or by implants(a screw kind of material is inserted into the bone over that a crown will be placed). If the teeth are malaligned and needs to be treated then you can go for braces, but the amount of space created by the lost tooth cannot be closed by braces. Better to go for FPD or implants. I hope my answer will help you, take care.
