about 6 years i had which i thought was my baby canine tooth removed so the adult canine can grow out. the tooth extraction left a gap; recently another tooth started growing out between the gap i went to my dentist today and he said the tooth growing out was my canine which confused me because i thought the tooth i had pulled earlier was to let my canine tooth grow in. heg ave me 2 options either have the tooth that is growing in extracted or have my teeth shifted around. shifted does he mean by braces? and if i did have it extracted will it still leave me with a gap. my main concern is to fix the gap between my canine and my lateral incisor (my upper left side.) please help.
