Orthodontics Before or After Dental Implant?

September 25, 2012

Should I get Invisalign or braces before or after a dental implant? Typically, all permanent work including crowns, veneers, implants are done after orthodontic treatment. It's important to remember that dental implants are permanent and they don't move around once they are placed. It's recommended to get all orthodontics finished before doing an implant because once the implant is in, it can't be moved. Orthodontic treatment from braces or Invisalign by their very nature cause teeth to move so this process is best done before dental implants occur. Once your orthodontic treatment is finished, a dental implant can be placed.
