Braces with missing teeth

Braces treatment can be done for cases with missing teeth. A lot of factors before treatment
must be assessed thoroughly before deciding the best treatment plan for each situation. As
usual, orthodontic records are taken before and after treatment. The records are then analysed
to identify the criteria to either orthodontically close the spaces or gaps caused by the missing
teeth, or redistribute them in order to replace the missing teeth with dental implants or other
means. The patient’s age, the moment of extraction and the condition of the surrounding bone
and gum tissues are just a few examples of factors to be considered.
We at Orthomontreal.com, before your treatment, will proceed with all the examination, analysis, and
all the most modern dental and medical imagery, including from conventional X-Rays to Cone
beam computed tomography (or CBCT, also referred to as C-arm CT, cone beam volume CT, or
flat panel CT) to analyse your particular situation. Our objective is to give you all the options
that are available in today’s technology, from Invisalign aligners to Clear Braces, and help you
choose the best and the most appropriate ones specifically adapted to your needs. As such, we
will help you achieve the best results possible after treatment.
In most cases when some criteria are met, we will close the gaps created by your missing teeth,
in order for you to avoid restorations. However, some cases will result in much better esthetics
(beautiful and full smile in harmony with the surrounding soft tissues) and function (chewing)
with restorative dentistry after treatment. We, at Orthomontreal.com have been specialized in
Orthodontics for over 16 years. We will closely work with your family dentist, or other
specialists, such as oral surgeons, prosthodontists or periodontists that we can refer you to, in
order to give you the most beautiful and radiant smile that you deserve. It is therefore a
misconception that people sometimes have, in the sense that people with missing teeth can
not be treated orthodontically. In fact, the reality is the total opposite: most of the people that
have missing teeth DO need braces treatment.
Some other treatment modalities that we can use for you include the most modern braces
systems in the industry. The Damon System, the H4™ Self-Ligating System and the Motion
Activator System, are just a few examples. We have also available for you very esthetic brackets
that are made out of porcelain and are tooth colored that you may choose.
If you have missing teeth before orthodontic treatment, whether they were lost because of
cavities, gum disease or other reasons when you were younger, or whether you just lost a tooth
because of trauma any other reasons, you can rest assured that we will do everything in our
power, every technology that is available to help you make the best decision in your case, in
order to achieve the most functional and esthetic results, the most beautiful smile for you after
