I have 3 missing teeth and I also need braces. I haven’t made any appointments with dentist yet about it. I just want to know if there is a certain order that I need to do it. Braces or implants first? Thanks – Gloria
Gloria – There are some instances where teeth next to the missing ones won’t be moved with braces, in which case, the dental implants can be placed first.
But dental implants won’t move after they have been placed. If there are teeth near your missing teeth that need to be repositioned, your treatment with braces should be completed before you get the implants.
Speak with your orthodontist about which teeth will be affected by your braces and when the implants should be placed to get the best results.
