Can I Get an Implant With Braces?
The answer is yes you can. Some patients that come to us are missing teeth or have lost some teeth with space in their mouths. Sometimes with braces we cannot close all the spaces. What we do is we leave the appropriate space, as if the tooth was there, for an implant.
As orthodontists it’s our job to get the right space for the right size tooth. We work with a general dentist or periodontist when they place the implant, to have the right amount of space. This happens with many of our patients. This is not an issue at all and can be addressed.
