One tooth out of place

I have one of my incisors slightly out of place. It is protruding outwards. Do I need a complete set of braces for this? Or can a single tooth be put in place by a faster method?

Hi..Though its a single tooth protruding out , it always requires full set of braces. Other faster methods are there like doing root canal and crown but the most preferred one is braces so please go for natural way.

You have many options. Let your ORTHODONTIST decide what is best for you.. Option 1- braces for all the teeth. (As both the jaws are used together to chew) Option 2- social six- braces for front teeth only. Option 3- aligners. Option 4- RC treatment followed by crown. I hope by this even you might have got what is best possible solution.

There is no shortcut to any treatment. Braces see the best solution for getting things in place. Braces help in distribution of force applied with the help of wire onto the teeth. The best part is the treatment time will be less if only one tooth is protruded. Happy Smiling.

Hello. Considering your age, a regular set of fixed braces, will be required to move your tooth back into position. The treatment will take time as movements can be achieved only slowly. You can also align your tooth by doing a crown which might require additional treatment. Treatment with braces is preferable, as its more natural.
