Can I get braces if I’m missing teeth?

Why Braces Won’t Be A Problem If You Have Missing Teeth

When it’s time to fix the gap in your teeth by getting braces, many people have some questions before pulling the trigger. From the clear brace to clear aligners and invisalign, there are a lot of options available to you. Some others include colored braces and Damon braces as well as removable aligners. A big concern many have is whether or not missing teeth will be a problem when getting braces.

As it is, getting dental work done can be intimidating. Many people fear that if they have missing teeth, then getting braces won’t allow them to fix other dental issues for the foreseeable future. You’ll be pleased to know that getting orthodontic work done is still possible if you have missing teeth. Dentists can work around the other issues to allow them to provide the fixes that you need while your gap is being closed. Whether it’s colored braces, Damon Braces, Removable Aligners, clear aligners, or invisalign, orthodontic work can still be achieved. No matter the situation, you should be in the clear.

Restoration won’t be a problem even with the use of forsus appliances. What forsus appliances do is aid to retrain your bite. Palatal expanders are also used to correct bad bites. Once again, you will still be able to get those missing teeth treated while using palatal expanders.
