Dental Implants Manchester – Is It Best Before Or After Braces?

While it’s recognised that dental implants Manchester are the best form of missing teeth replacement that modern dentistry allows, from an aesthetic point of view they won’t look as good if the remaining teeth aren’t straight. For this reason implant treatment is often combined with dental implants Wilmslow or orthodontic processes, such as braces Manchester, This is done as part of an overall treatment plan to improve a patient’s smile. However the question remains…. Is orthodontic treatment best performed, before or after dental implants? Let’s take a closer look.

 

In many cases orthodontic treatments to correct any crooked or misaligned teeth are carried out first. The reason is that once implants are in position and secured into the jawbone they can’t be repositioned, especially once the osseointegration (bone fusion) process takes place. For this reason it’s best to correct any alignments prior to undergoing treatments for dental implants. Manchester–based dentists will usually take this same route with most patients because it offers the best chance of implant success.

That said, there are occasions when a dental implant for example is placed before any tooth corrections. The reason is that there are some instances when a dental implant needs to act as an anchor point so that any appropriate forces can be applied to straighten the teeth in question. In this instance the patient is likely to undergo implant treatment before any braces in Manchester are attached.

Whatever is decided both your orthodontist and oral surgeon will collaborate together to ascertain the best course of action for you. This will be discussed with the patient and once all parties agree,  a treatment plan will be drawn up to reflect their findings.

The good news is that whatever course of action is taken it’s likely to be carried out in the comfort of the dental chair and not in a hospital surgery, so patients can rest assured that provided they choose an experienced team, they’ll be in safe and secure hands.

The bottom line is that although orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign braces Manchester and dental implants are different processes which are mostly used in different circumstances, they can come together to complete an overall treatment that enhances both the form and the function of a smile.
