hi Dr my upper canines were extracted becoz of some problem now my Dentist is closing these spaces with power chain but he is saying that the space will be close but it will last between last 2 molars as i don't have any bracket or band on last molar both sides,i want to know why any bracket or band cant be applied on last molar.is it ok to have a space there or it can be closed by applying bracket over there.

    It is quite difficult to move the molars with the brackets and bands. You can discuss the issue with your orthodontist as it is difficult to comment on this without seeing the case clinically.  For more info on braces you can visit the following link…http://www.identalhub.com/article_choosing-right-type-of-braces-159.aspx
