I too had an impacted canine and thought about an implant. However, after pro/coning.... I decided to have my canine exposed and brought down. 1. it was cheaper 2. your natural teeth last a lifetime while an implant *hopefully* lasts 20-30 years (advice from my oral surgeon) Also, I had my canine ex...

Extracting one tooth from the front wont affect your appearance... atleast i dont think.

Only downside is, this will throw off your midline as your top and bottom wont be symetrical when your lacking one tooth.

I was presented with this very same option.

I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my iBraces! I had 3 missing adult teeth, an impacted tooth, a severely deep bite... let's just say my mouth was a mess! If iBraces work for me, i imagine they could work for anyone.

What do you mean by "high in the gum"? Do you mean it's impacted and need exposre surgery?

I had an impacted canine sitting in the rough of my mouth, which was exposed in September. Linguals are working fantastically for me!

DONT EAT THE POPCORN

So... i ate popcorn, despite being told not to... and let's just say I learned my lesson.. For the past week I have had a terrible pain in my gum. It felt like something was stabbing my gum... I have been flossing, brushing, and using my waterpik... yet couldn't fix my problem.... Today I got so fed...

I'd say no to linguals if you make a career out of singing. I have had my IBraces (lingual) on for a few months, and while I've really adjusted to speaking with them, I still have a slight lisp and slur with certain words. Especially when using the letter s or th sounds. It's find for everyday speak...

I had my impacted canine uncovered in September 07. It's all the way down, but not in the arch yet. Probably will be March before it looks normal!

I was misisng both of my second bicuspids on my bottom. I had baby teeth there. My ortho had me get those extracted, then extracted two teeth from the top... and is now closing all the gaps. I felt this was the best option for me.. as i dont have to spend any extra money on implants.
