We have no problem with missing teeth and Invisalign. We can end the aligner or tray behind your last tooth and still straighten all the rest..Not to worry..

Invisalign and missing teeth

With the very last teeth missing, Invisalign should work fine if you qualify for it otherwise.  Invisalign is able to do some great things, but has it's limitations.  A consult with an experienced provider will help you decide what your options might be.

Missing teeth MAY not be an issue for Invisalign®

The series of aligners used for Invisalign use the adjacent teeth for leverage to move teeth.  Depending on how MANY are missing, it normally does not present a problem.

Missing back tooth and Invisalign

Invisalign is a great tool for straighening and aligning teeth. To replace the back tooth you should consider an implant and crown.

Depending on how many teeth are missing Invisalign can help! As long as there are enough teeth for anchorage we can straighten the teeth. Only your doctor can determine this. I had several cases done with a great success.

Hope it helps.
