See an orthodontist: For evaluation, diagnosis, records and treatment options. Braces can be put on teeth with root canals and crowns, but they should be monitored during the active treatment and the retention phase.

About to get a root canal tooth (#25) while on braces -is it practical? -will I need a crown? -was quoted $600. Reasonable?

About to get a root canal tooth (#25) while on braces -is it practical? -will I need a crown? -was quoted $600. Reasonable?

Yes and possibly: It is not a problem with braces on. And if you need one based on proper diagnosis it is very practical. A crown is needed only if the tooth has large or multiple fillings. If possible, if a crown is determined necessary by your dentist, see if it can wait until ortho is complete. Fees are locale and dr. Specific.

I'm wondering how long after I get my braces off can I get a crown on one of my teeth?

I'm wondering how long after I get my braces off can I get a crown on one of my teeth?

All Depends: This is a question for your general dentist. The answer also depends on which tooth requires the crown. Changing a tooth after orthodontic treatment may require adjustment or need for a new post orthodontic retainer because the old one may not fit after the placement of the new crown.

I have a crooked front tooth, I'm 25 and do not want braces I want to finally fix this. Is it dangerous to get a crown and root canal?

I have a crooked front tooth, I'm 25 and do not want braces I want to finally fix this. Is it dangerous to get a crown and root canal?

A lot of? 's: You are young and straightening your teeth may take a couple of years, and it will be worth it. You will have an attractive smile for the rest of your life. I generally advise patients against crowning teeth to restore crowding if they are otherwise healthy teeth. If of crowning teeth to straighten the appearance requires root treating a tooth, I would strongly suggest orthodontics.

Can you get invisalign braces with crowns and missing teeth?

Can you get invisalign braces with crowns and missing teeth?

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.

I had a root canal 10 years ago, and just got braces off 2 days ago. I'm due to get a crown but I'm experiencing facial numbness now and sinking tooth?

I had a root canal 10 years ago, and just got braces off 2 days ago. I'm due to get a crown but I'm experiencing facial numbness now and sinking tooth?

Dental issue?: I'm not clear on what your are referring to when you say you have a "sinking tooth"? Regardless, these types of situations cannot be diagnosed over the internet. You need to discuss all your symptoms and concerns with a dentist who can properly and accurately answer all your questions. If you are not confident with your own dentist's treatment and advice, get a second opinion before continuing.

Can I get braces if I have a cravity?

Can I get braces if I have a cravity?

Bad idea: The order of rx should be: 1. Control infection (cavities, gum disease, etc) 2. Move teeth/jaws into best possible relationships 3. Do final gum treatment and restorations have your cavities fixed before you straighten your teeth. It's highly unlikely that a qualified orthodontic specialist would risk moving diseased teeth.

Can I get braces if I have tmj? My jaw slightly clicks and my dentist told me it's because of my malocclusion!

Yes, but: While it is possible that the braces will help your tmj, and often do, there is no guarantee to this. Tmj can be caused by a wide range of variables and ortho treatment is not 100% effective in addressing this.

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.

Could I get rapid smiles instead of braces if I have an overbite?

Could I get rapid smiles instead of braces if I have an overbite?

Caution: Rapid smiles is not a replacement for braces. It is a mildly invasive procedure in the bone with an intent to stimulate tooth movement. It has nothing to do with your overbite. See a licensed orthodontic specialist for an opinion first, not a dentist dabbling.

Could I still get clear braces if I have extractions and an overbite?

Yes: But also understand the other docs who answered are discussing invisalign (potentially an option, but as noted by the other docs, with pros and cons) and you may also wish to consider clear brackets (yet another option with its own pros and cons, but generally as effective as metal braces). Talk to a couple of orthodontists to understand your options which will allow u to make the best decisions.
