Can I get Invisalign if I have a dental implant?
In most cases, the answer is yes. A dental implant cannot be moved like a regular tooth as the implant body is fixed, integrated into your jaw bone. Invsialign, clear aligners, and traditional orthodontics cannot move dental implants. Thus, if you have a dental implant and are considering orthodontics, your treatment plan will be made taking this into consideration. If you have a one or two dental implants, in most cases the movement of teeth adjacent to the implant can be planned for a successful outcome. However, if you have no remaining natural teeth or a high number of dental implants in certain positions, Invisalign or clear aligner therapy is probably not for you. The only way to know is to have a consultation with a dentist or orthodontist and have the details of your particular situation examined.
