Here is My Question:
Can I put metal braces if I am supposed to have to have MRI 1-2/year?
Metal braces definitely distort the magnetic field and interfere with MR imaging of the head and neck region. There are other options such as ceramic braces that will not have this effect. I would discuss this with your orthodontist, MS specialist and the radiology center where you normally get your MRI scans. If insurance will only cover metal braces your doctors may be able to write a letter of medical necessity for ceramic braces based on your condition. Good luck.
