Orthodontic treatment moves teeth by exerting sustained pressure on them. And traditional braces are the most effective orthodontic approach for moving teeth in this way. But if you have one or more dental crowns and you need orthodontic treatment, then traditional braces might not be the right approach.

When people think of dental implants, they may think of implants that replace missing teeth. While missing teeth is one possible reason to undergo an implant procedure, there are others, such as implants for bridges and implants for fixed prosthetics (e.g., all-on-four dentures).
