The effects of braces on reimplanted front teeth?

About two years ago, I fell and knocked out my two front teeth. It was a horrible experience, but they were reimplanted and they have been fine ever since (thank goodness). I went to the dentist today for a cleaning and we discussed my open bite. It is horrible....I've had it my entire life. My front gums have the tendency to be inflamed because of my open bite, not to mention the fact that I have all the symptoms of TMJ.

I think I would have to have jaw surgery to correct this, but that also means getting braces. My concern is the effect that the braces would have on my reimplanted teeth. After everything I went through getting them back in (I posted about it in the dental forum years ago), the last thing I want is to lose them due to the braces moving them around.

Anyone have opinions or experiences with this dilemma?
