Are you considering orthodontic treatment, but wondering if missing teeth could be a roadblock? At Feinstein 360 Orthodontics, we believe that every smile has its unique journey, and missing teeth shouldn’t deter you from achieving the smile you’ve always wanted. In this blog post, we’re here to answer the pressing question: “Can I get braces if I have missing teeth?” Let’s dive into the world of orthodontics and debunk the myths surrounding this common concern.

Understanding the Missing Teeth Concern

It is very common for children and adults to be missing one or more permanent teeth for a variety of reasons. The most common reason for children is that they were born without all their permanent teeth. The most common reason for missing teeth in adults is trauma or caries. Individuals mistakenly believe that missing teeth automatically disqualifies them from pursuing braces or other orthodontic treatments. However, the reality is quite different. Our skilled team at Feinstein 360 Orthodontics is equipped to address a variety of dental situations, including cases involving missing teeth.

The Good News: You Can Still Get Braces or Invisalign!

Yes, you read that right – having missing teeth does not exclude you from getting braces or Invisalign. At Feinstein 360 Orthodontics, we offer a range of solutions that can help address your orthodontic needs, even in the presence of missing teeth:

  1. Closing Gaps: For some people closing the gaps caused by missing teeth is the best treatment option. Braces or Invisalign can be used to gradually shift your remaining teeth and close the gaps left by missing teeth. This can not only improve the aesthetics of your smile but also promote better oral health by reducing the risk of food particles getting trapped in those spaces.
  2. Creating Space: In certain cases, braces or Invisalign can create space for dental implants or other restorative treatments to replace missing teeth. This comprehensive approach ensures that your smile not only looks great but also functions properly. For some people, opening space for future restorative and prosthetic treatments such as implants, bridges, veneers, or crowns are the best esthetic and functional treatment choice.
  3. A Comprehensive Plan: Dr. Feinstein, our board-certified orthodontist, loves to work with your dentist in order to create a personalized treatment plan. This coordination and communication with your dentist will create a “team” approach that will inevitably result in your best esthetic and functional smile.
