Can You Get Braces If You Have Bridge In Your Front Teeth?

Ortho with bridge: Generally speaking, permanent bridges cannot be moved with Orthodontic treatment, but the other teeth can be. However, each case is different and this requires a one on one personal consultation with an Orthodontist to determine what can and cannot be done and what your overall treatment options are. ...Read more

Is it best to get braces before a bridge?

Absolutely: A bridge can't be moved like a single tooth. Have teeth moved into ideal positions first. Then best possible bridge can be fabricated. Will work better, look better, and last longer. ...Read more

If you have fixed bridge, you can get braces?

For other teeth: Orthodontics cannot move teeth that are part of a fixed bridge. The other teeth can be moved orthodontically. You should discuss your particular situation with both a general dentist and an orthodontist in order to come up with the best treatment plan for your situation. Orthodontics may be just one of the methods used in order to attain the best looking and healthiest bite and smile. ...Read more

Should i get a root canal or just extract and get a bridge? Is it worth it to get all these root canal and then braces?

Implant Replacement: There are times when extracting the tooth and replacing it with an implant supported crown may be the better choice. You are not preparing the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth for a fixed bridge. Therefore it is conservative in that you are only dealing with the one area. It may be about the same cost as a root canal, post and crown. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Consider both: Not seeing your problem, can't give definitive answer. Best to consult with your restorative dentist and an orthodontic specialist. Learn about all the options available to you, then pick the one that will give you the best bang for your buck. Good luck. ...Read more
