Can You Wear Braces with Missing Teeth?
Yes, even if you have one or more gaps in your smile due to missing teeth, you can still undergo orthodontic treatment. It may be able to help you if your teeth are crowded together, you have a misaligned bite, or you want to close unsightly gaps.
In some cases, we recommend that patients receive prosthetic teeth before they start orthodontic care. You might qualify for a bridge or dental implant. However, whether or not you need such services depends on your unique situation.
Can You Address Tooth Loss with Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners, including popular brands like Invisalign, are often a great choice for individuals who are missing a tooth. That is because Invisalign has a unique feature that allows a temporary tooth to be built into your aligner trays. That can preserve space so you can enjoy successful tooth replacement after you complete your Invisalign journey.
Are you curious to find out if Invisalign is right for you? We would be happy to evaluate your candidacy during your consultation.
Other Treatments That May Be Required if You Have Missing Teeth
In some cases, it is completely possible to have successful orthodontic treatment without first replacing lost teeth. However, depending on your goals and the state of your oral health, you might need to get dental implants or a bridge before you start your journey with our team. This is often true if your missing teeth are not close to the teeth that need to be straightened.
