Can I use Invisalign if I have a dental bridge or missing teeth?

Invisalign can be used in some cases for individuals with dental bridges or missing teeth, but the feasibility depends on the specific situation. Invisalign is primarily designed for moving natural teeth, and it may not be the ideal treatment option for individuals with extensive tooth loss or certain types of dental bridges. However, it can be used in cases where there are small gaps or misalignments around dental bridges or partial edentulism (missing teeth) to improve the overall alignment and bite.

In more complex situations with significant tooth loss, your dentist or orthodontist may recommend a combination of treatments, which can include dental implants to replace missing teeth, followed by Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment to align the remaining teeth. It’s essential to consult with an experienced Invisalign provider who can assess your specific case and recommend the most suitable treatment plan to address your dental needs effectively.
