How will a dental implant work with braces?

Very Well

Orthodontist
The key to implants and braces is the proper order. Move teeth first... Place implants second. Please be sure to wear your retainers for the rest of your life, as the implant and your natural teeth need to remain in the corrected position. Amazingly teeth can move 1 years after braces or 25 years after braces. Protect your orthodontic and implant investment!

The teeth will need to be moved into the planned positions with braces and then a dental implant can be placed.

Dental implants are solid in the jaw bone and will not be moved orthodontically . The other teeth adjacent to the implant may be moved.

Generally you would not want to place an implant until all orthodontic work is completed. Once the teeth are positioned correctly an implant can be placed

Esthetic? wait to 22

No doubt dental implants can successfully fill orthodontically planned spaces. However, in esthetic zones it is best to wait until teeth and gums "mature" to their proper length. (Usually in one's early twenties) Otherwise, an implant may produce a noticeably different gum height.

Depending upon your orthodontic needs, the implant may actually assist as an "anchor" support to move your other teeth. Check with your orthodontist for a treatment plan for your particular implant(s) with braces.

If used to aid in orthodontics these are temporary implants that are placed to provide additional support and anchorage to move teeth. Once the teeth are moved then they can be removed

The key to this is the treatment plan and timing. Orthodontic movement should be completed prior to an implant being placed. Once the teeth are moved and the proper size space is created the implant is placed. Implants do not move with orthodontics, so once there are placed, they cant be moved. If they are placed in the incorrect spot, they must be removed and replaced

Braces first !

Teeth move with orthodontic forces, implants don't. Get your braces done and at the end of treatment have the Orthodontist coordinate implant placement with your oral surgeon and dentist. Wear your retainers!

Will not work

Braces
Dental implants will not move orthodontically. After healing they are ankylosed to the bone meaning they are attached directly to the bone. Best to do orthodontics to completion, then proceed with implant placement.

Position the teeth in the proper positions prior to placing dental implants. However, there are cases in which dental implants may be placed prior to orthodontics and used as anchors to provide a better orthodontic result.
