I am thinking of getting braces but I've been warned against it because of some bone loss in my upper teeth. If I go ahead with braces, will I lose those teeth sooner than expected?

No but if there is bone loss consult a periodontist it can b tt.
Dear Lybrate user, Please don't be so apprehensive about the treatment. It's best to consult an Orthodontist and understand what is best for you. Getting braces done from a specialist does not decrease the life of your teeth.
