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 certain spaces. We will 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 will work with your general dentist or periodontist when they place the implant to ensure they have the right amount of space.
