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. ...Read more
