Can dental implant impression be done if I have my braces on.? My ortho said that my implant dentist can place wax on the brackets for impression he doesn’t want my teeth to shift when I’m waiting for my crown.
He didn’t mention about taking the wire out. I have my impression on Friday.

It does make it tricky. I would recommend to wait for impressions until the braces are off. If the implant is designed digitally, you can scan the implant with a scan body and then the brackets or arch wire does not interfere. Depends on the method your dentist is going to use.
