Is it normal for your front teeth to rest on your bottom braces therefore causing your top and bottom molars to not be able to touch?
Probably not. But you should call your orthodontist and talk to them about it.
I researched this problem myself; I have had a similar experience myself. By looking and exploring many different sources of information, this is a common effect and is nothing to worry about. Chances are this is most likely attributed to your molars not having grown in enough, and unless it is seriously impairing your ability to eat, don't be too alarmed. In many cases, this speeds up the shifting process as there is less of a resistance for your teeth. If you are still worried about it, feel free to phone your orthodontist to find out more.

If you have had braces and several years later your whole set of front top and bottom teeth don't touch can this be repaired?
My advice is to consult an orthodontist ~ in many cases an open bite can be corrected with braces, in more severe cases orthognathic surgery may be needed (which is not as bad… as it sounds, it is virtually painless and a common procedure). I recommend searching online for support groups if surgery is the diagnosis; you'll be able to have all your questions and concerns answered there. Yahoo has some excellent groups. In any case, it's important to wear your retainer as specified after your braces come off, otherwise your teeth will most likely go back to their original postition. , and good luck!
Do braces on the upper teeth work without putting braces on the bottom ones too The top ones have gaps bottom perfect.?
\nYes they will help straighten your teeth without having braces on the bottom.\nI have had braces before and I didnt have them on my bottom and my teeth straightend\nout quic…kly.
I am assuming that you mean when you bite together. Everyone's bite is a bit different however a textbook "class I incisal canine relationship" means that the maxillary "top" …incisors should cover the top 1/3 of the mandibular "bottom" teeth. Any greater, and that's considared an overbite.
It is not normal to count your teeth, but it is normal for your question to happen alot.
If your two front teeth overlap your bottom teeth but your bottom teeth are still sticking out does that mean you still need braces?

Do you need braces if your front top teeth overalap your bottom but your bottom middle teeth stick out too?

Do you need braces if your top middle teeth overlap your bottom but your middle bottom teeth stick out too?
Yes you will. Because not only do you have over-lapping teeth, but also an overbite - something that's very common these days. So yes, braces will help the teeth star…ighten out how they are supposed to be.. (:
the bottom front teeth are incisors, a single-rooted teeth with a sharp, thin edge.. they are designed to cut food without the application of heavy force. molars are much lar…ger, usually having 4 or more cusps. the function of the 12 molars is the chew or grind up food. maxillary & mandibular molars differ from each other with their shape, size & number of cusps, & roots.
No, not all people get both top and bottom braces at the same time. It all depends of what your orthodontist recommends.
Well, I know from experience. I clench and grinde my teeth and my back brackets on my molars always fall off. Does that answer your question? the braces on my bottom teeth ge…t in the way when my top teeth bite down on them like when i eat the top teeth touches the bottom braces
They are called "incisors". The 4 front teeth in your upper part of the mouth are incisors, and the 4 front teeth in the lower part of your mouth are incisors, too.
Is it normal for a five year old who has already lost three of his front bottom teeth to lose a molar?

My top teeth are pretty straight but my 2 bottom teeth are slightly curving in Also my one molar is way crookedWill they give me braces or like a retainer for that?
A person who's teeth are curved inward, but are not crooked wouldmost likely be given a retainer. Braces are only used forstraightening teeth that are crooked.
