Suggest remedy for dental problem

I have a question. I am currently receiving treatments from an orthodontists. I have an impacted front tooth that I want down. Initially, during the consultation, the doctor told me that in order for that tooth to come down, I would have to get braces and then a surgery to expose the impacted tooth and to chain it. He also said that because the tooth is in the front, he would put a temporary tooth in that place while he uses the chain to pull the tooth down. Well, I ve got the braces and I had the surgery. All I m waiting for is for the doctor to pull it down and to put a tooth in the front. Well, during my last appointment, he told me that he wasn t going to be able to pull it down because my surgery area wasn t completely. Now, the surgery area is healed, and I went to see him today. I was expecting to begin pulling my tooth into place. However, that was not the case. He told me that, now, in order for him to begin to pull down the tooth, he has to leave the open space, and I would have to go a few months without a tooth in the front. This is not what I agreed to initially and I do not want to walk around like that. Is there anything I can do about this?

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The tooth cannot be replaced with a artificial tooth since in that place the impacted tooth has to be pulled down. By placing an artificial tooth, we cannot pull the impacted tooth into position. So ideally speaking, the impacted tooth should be exposed and then using braces it has to be repositioned. do not go for artificial tooth.
I hope my answer will he lp you, take care.

Hello thank you for sharing your problem with hcm.
You can get temporary tooth there until your natural tooth comes into place.
Wish you good health.
