Dental Implant

Can I get Braces with a Dental Implant?

Yes, you can get the help that you need even if you have a dental implant. Our skilled orthodontists can make just about anything work.

Itís important to note that braces cannot move an implant because the implants are directly attached to the jaw bone, and they donít move around the mouth as natural teeth can. Your orthodontist is going to have to create a system that moves the surrounding teeth. That is, we can use the dental implant as an anchor point and use that to provide the force necessary to move the surrounding teeth or focus on other areas so that your teeth are not strictly moved to be in alignment with the implant.

In the most unlikely scenario, we can remove the implant, realign your teeth, and replace the implant after the course of treatment with braces is complete.
