Q.

Skew tooth

I had braces when I was younger (was about 10 or 11). When they came out, I was not given a retainer to wear. I''m now 30 and one of my top teeth (eye teeth is starting to jut forwards slightly) and it''s getting worse. I really don''t want to go the braces route again. Can I just have a tooth removed near the back. Will that realign my tooth in the front?

No that won't work.
Braces would be your best bet
