Wonderfully...


It is important that your orthodontist and dentist work together to make a plan that will create the final result desired. At times the missing teeth are not replaced; the braces are used to move the adjacent teeth into those places. In other times the space is maintained during and following braces so that replacement can be accomplished. A team approach with your dentist makes this best.

Teamwork


Treatment like this is certainly possible, but it does require teamwork. At the very least, this involves you, your dentist, and your orthodontist. This may also require other specialists as well, but invisalign can certainly be used on patients with missingMteeth and crowns.

Can I still get braces if I have missing teeth? I'm an adult who would like to get braces, but I'm also missing a few teeth in the back of my mouth. Will that affect my ability to wear braces of any sort? .

As


As Dr. McLeod advised, you can still get braces even if you have some missing teeth. The question is: do you have spacing between your front teeth or are your teeth crowded? If you have spacing, It may be due to a collapsed bite secondary to a loss of vertical dimension. In other words, by loosing the support of your back teeth, your mouth may be "over closing" and your lower teeth are exerting outward pressure on your upper teeth, causing the spacing. Unable to exactly see if this is your problem, have the dentist who will treat you evaluate you for replacement of your molars. This can be done with either a fixed or removable prosthesis. By re-establishing the pillars of support in the posterior, you will help prevent further collapse of your bite, and will allow for orthodontic success.

It depends


It depends on how many missing teeth and where they are missing. I would suggest that you have a consultation with a dentist or orthodontist to get an indication of the possibilities or lack there of. There may be a way of replacing those missing teeth once all the teeth are aligned into a typical pattern. Again see your dentist for more information.

Team effort


For best results probably need an Orthodontic Specialist to move teeth into the best relationships in which to do restorative treatment, and a Restorative Dentist to reshape teeth if spaces closed, or replace missing teeth if spaces opened. The Orthodontist and the Restorative Dentist, working together, can arrive at the treatment plan that best resolves your problem.

Consult first


All my colleagues gave you great answers. Step #1 is to see a dentist (or even a few) for a consultation. After having a complete and thorough dental examination and a full series of x-rays, your dentist(s) can discuss what restorative options are available and best for your specific circumstances. Then you can decide which one fits your needs and budget.

Consult in order


We can't give you a simple answer with this type of forum. You have multiple dental problems and this requires you to see a dentist for a consultation. First, you will need a complete and thorough exam and x-rays. Your basic dentistry, namely repairing all your decayed teeth and getting your gums healthy would be step #2. Then your dentist can discuss your treatment options with you.
