Implants & Ortho

For complicated cases, comprehensive treatment is required, including implants and ortho.  Ortho can be conducted to lay a foundation for implant placement. Or implants are placed first.  Once they osteointegrate, they are used as anchorages for effective tooth movement.  Ortho treatment can be limited or comprehensive.  In the end, both procedures are mutually beneficial.
