Yes, but...: Depending on your malocclusion and how your qualified orthodontic specialist has to arrange teeth and jaws for best function, esthetics, and stability, bridge may have to be sectioned to allow tooth movement and remade after teeth are straightened. Ask your orthodontist to consult with your restorative dentist to achieve the best result for you.
