Q.

Braces - How long

The Orthodontist put in braces for my daughter in June 2009. Her teeth was very bad. Also in 2008, she lost her front tooth (ice rink). Anyway the dentist put in a false tooth and said later she will have to get implants. It has been almost 2 years now and her teeth seem to be fine. When will the orthodontist take the braces out and also when can she get a implant. She is now 16 years old. Thanking you

only the orthodontist will be able to tell you when the barces will be removed. the implant can be done a few weeks after that
