Repositioning can work on its own - but doesn't always. I'm not sure

Our doc (cranial facial plastic surgeon) recommends banding at 10mm or
above, so by that criteria you're borderline. However some band at
lower numbers(8). There are repo tips in the files section of the
group. You do still have some time to decide, but you would be fine
deciding to band now too.
