I’m getting dental implants, but I am also getting braces. Which one should I get first?
It is always best to get your braces done first, because once your implants are placed they cannot be moved. They are permanently placed into your jawbone and lack the ligament necessary to deal with movement.
The tricky part is making sure your braces movement doesn’t affect your dental implant placement. You’ll want to find an orthodontist who is comfortable doing both orthodontics and dental implants, because they’ll understand the unique procedures.
