Can I get braces if I’m missing some teeth?

July 20, 2018

It can be possible for you to have successful orthodontic treatment if some teeth are missing, depending on your circumstances and your treatment goals. Orthodontic treatment may be able to close the space of a missing tooth, or may be able to create or save sufficient space for a replacement tooth/teeth. Consult an orthodontist to discuss what is right for you.  Your orthodontist may need to work with your primary care dentist and/or other dental specialists to help you achieve your treatment goals.
