Can Braces or Invisalign Affect a Root Canal?

The general consensus is that if the tooth has had a healthy root canal, it can be moved with a brace. In other words, it is safe to have a root canal before, during, or after receiving traditional metal braces or Invisalign. Even if you experience pain, you can still have the procedure done in the middle of your Invisalign treatment and have a CT scan afterwards. If you've recently had a root canal or are considering getting one, you may be wondering if you can put on braces or Invisalign afterwards.

The answer is yes, braces can be placed on your teeth after a root canal, but they will likely be designed in a way that allows your teeth to move more gradually. As for the crowns or root canal needing to be replaced, braces generally don't damage existing teeth in the mouth. It is unclear whether any dental procedures (other than cleanings) need to be performed while wearing Invisalign. However, some patients who have undergone endodontic treatments on their teeth are concerned that these teeth cannot be moved.

Fortunately, this is not the case and these teeth can still be moved with braces or Invisalign.
