Shifting Teeth FAQ Ask The Dentist Edward Leventhal Question:
Braces to fix shifting teeth? My bottom teeth has shifted to the point it looks like I have a tooth missing in the middle.

I have none of my back teeth. Would I be able to get braces not having back teeth? ... Visitor from MD

Braces can be placed on your teeth to close the gap.

Radiographs must be taken to view the bone level of your teeth. Insufficient bone makes orthodontic movement a bad idea, because sufficient bone will be needed to hold your teeth in place after braces.

The back teeth would also have to be replaced. See a dentist to see if bone is sufficient.
