Implant for maxillary central incisor

Has anyone here had braces in order to make place for an implant (not veneers) on your upper front row?

I'm currently in braces because a few years ago, I broke out one of my maxillary central incisors on my upper jaw, so it's a pretty noticeable gap. When my treatment is finished next year, I will get an implant for that missing incisor.

If anyone here has been in a similar situation, could you share your experience and how it went?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi, I cannot help with how it went but I am in a similar situation right now. I have congenitally missing both upper lateral incisors and I am currently 7 months in braces to create enough gap on both sides for 2 implants. I have been told prior to my treatment that I will most probably need bone graff too. I would also be interested to hear from anyone who is currently going through a similar situation or who has already completed a similar treatment. I wish your journey goes well!
