If possible yes: If an expander can be utilized to create room for the teeth to erupt and accomplishes good final orthodontic results, it is a better treatment. If the canines are permanent canines , i would seek a second opinion. Orthodontic results can be accomplished with various treatment approaches.

Clasp retention: A partial denture utilizes the remaining teeth in that arch to stabilize the partial. Implants can also be used to stabilize a removable partial denture. The use of implants can help improve the esthetics of the partial denture by eliminating the need for clasps that may be visible when you smile or talk. A partial denture should be comfortable to wear but it will collect food around it.

Experience knowledge: It should be the same procedure but the biggest difference may be the experience the general dentist has performing this procedure compared to an oral surgeon who performs this procedure on a daily basis.
