If you have fixed bridge, you can get braces?

For other teeth

Dental_consult
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.

Need a tooth extracted due to impaction. Teeth are rather crooked. Can i get an implant or bridge instead of braces? Can a spacer hold the spot temp?

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.

Is it best to get braces before a bridge?

Absolutely

Bridge
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.

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

Bridge
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.

Can you get braces if you have weak teeth?

Maybe

Head-teeth
What are weak teeth? Has your enamel been determined to have reduced hardness or thickness for some genetic reason? Best thing to do is present to an orthodontic specialist for an opinion.

Can you get braces if you still have some baby teeth?

When to start Ortho

Ortho_braces
When to start Orthodontic care is decided on a case by case basis. Certain situations warrant early intervention to prevent more serious malocclusions & may be initiated years prior to losing all one's primary (baby) teeth. Other situations warrant treatment once all baby teeth are out. It's very common to start during the transition phase. It's never too early to get an Orthodontic consult.

Is it possible to get braces if you have a missing tooth?

Absolutely !

Dental
Speak to a local orthodontist to see what can be done for your malocclusion. The space can possibly be closed, but in certain situations the teeth are aligned and a dental implant is placed.

Can you still have braces even if you have a bridge?

Yes, but...

Bridge
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.
