Implants Are Not Moveable: Orthodontic Treatment Prior to Implants

WHEN CONSIDERING YOUR full smile makeover, remember implants are not moveable; teeth are.

There are several treatment options to be considered in the treatment of your missing teeth. For a missing back tooth, there are two very good options:

1. Close the space with orthodontics
2. Fill the space with a dental implant

Braces Can Close Empty Spaces Before Implants

It is usually possible for an orthodontist to close an upper space from a missing back tooth.

Lower space from a missing back tooth can sometimes be closed but more often requires a bone graft and dental implant. Bone grafts can be place during orthodontic treatment.

After Orthodontic Treatment Is Done, Your Implant Crowns Will Be Placed

Final implants crowns can be placed as soon as your braces are removed. Should there be any delay, a nonremoveable fixed retainer is always best.

It’s Never Too Late!

It’s never too late for a full smile makeoever including orthodontic treatment and dental implants.
