 Consolidating Orthodontics with Dental Implants 

While the usual protocol is to straighten your teeth first and then place implants, some scenarios require placing implants before the orthodontic treatment. Since the dental implant is not a natural tooth, it cannot be moved from its place once it is fixed. Therefore, dentists recommend straightening the crooked teeth first, to make space for the dental implant.

However, sometimes when an anchorage is needed to align crooked teeth, dental implants are placed first. Then, the teeth are moved towards or away from the implant, using it as an anchor.

In cases where the implant has to be placed adjacent to teeth that do not need braces, implants can be placed first.

 Every individual is unique, and so is their dentition. CaliSmile orthodontics will help you decide the best course of action based on your individual requirements. You can have braces with an implant, but let Dr. Amir determine the treatment plan best suited to your oral conditions.
