Can a retainer alone without braces fix about a half a centimeter gap between your front two teeth and the two next to them please answer ASAP thanks?
I have braces now and I don't think a retainer would fix gaps because retainers are meant to keep teeth in place after having braces, they aren't meant to move teeth !! Sorry man
Braces are designed to move your teeth into better alignment. A retainer is designed to keep your teeth in their current position following braces. If your teeth are where you want them to be, you do not need braces or a retainer. If they are not, you will need to have them moved with braces followed by a retainer to hold them in place.
Yes. However, it's more likely that you'll get braces first for at least 6 months (half a year) and then get a retainer. Good luck! x
yes but you can use invisilign
yes you can Get a Retainer... And just ask your dentist!
There is no way to get your teeth straight without putting anything on them, but you can use Invisalign, which are clear braces/retainer type thing that is somewhat visible.
Yes, or a retainer to straighten your teeth out.
A retainer, though neither are cheap a retainer costs $500-1,000 and braces cost $5,000 for a full two year treatment
A crown at the front of your tooth but want braces for your front teeth and bottom can you get braces done if you have a crown?
My two front teeth were crowned when I was 10 years old. Replacement caps were done at 20 and 40 years of age. I had braces from age 13 to 16, didn't wear retainer, got braces again at 25, didn't wear retainer, got invisalign at 50 years of age. I'm wearing the retainer. Your teeth will always return to their natural configuration without a retainer. Caps will not affect if or what type of braces… Read More
You should get a retainer when you have your braces off to stop the teeth moving back into the position the braces has moved them from. Normally Essix retainers are issued. They are clear and totally unnoticeable.
you can get vaneers but there really expensive or you can get a retainer. they dont hurt as much...but i think youll have to get a special order from your dentist because i think your only allowed to have a retainer when your finshed with having braces. but its possible.
Usually, retainers are used after braces are removed to "retain" the effect of the braces. It is like weaning the braces off the teeth. What does the word retainer mean? Exactly, to retain.
no, but she has a retainer
What is the cost of a retainer for a 14 year with straight teeth with an overbite will the she need braces or a retainer?
Either just braces or both. I am 10 yrs old and i got my molds for my retainer yesterday and i will have that for 1 year and a half to 2 years. then i will get my braces for 2 years.
It has the same function as braces, but is only a wire. Like a retainer.
She doesn't have a lisp anymore. She did have a lisp because she used a retainer (which she calls a flipper - which she reveals in her book). She had braces for a short while but got then removed and switched for a retainer because she couldn't have braces on Hannah Montana. She doesn't use braces or a retainer now.
Yes I im getting my braces on un 20 days I have to wear a retainer with my braces because of my over bite so you don't nock off your bottom brackets
When you have braces for a certain amount of time you are required to wear a clear or wire retainer. They keep your teeth from moving. So say you got your braces off and you refuse to wear a retainer or you just don't want to, your teeth will move and then you have to get braces again. Your retainer doesn't have to be in very long.
She should've gotten a retainer and worn the retainer as she was told to. If she didn't follow that, she'll probably have to get braces again.
Yes ASAP i did not go and get a retainer when mine broke and ended getting braces twice twice trust me that retainer is way more comfortable than braces
well, it should only take two years. but, it does depend on if you get a retainer. if you do get a retainer that will be two more years. but just the braces are two year
well it depends on what you want to do. you can get them filled with a filling peice, you can have braces, or a nighttime retainer.
Miley Cyrus does NOT have a retainer...she had braces BEHIND her teeth but now she has gotten them taken off.
If you use teeth effect bands to close your gap and afterwards get a retainer would the gap stay closed?
I have found from personal experience that a retainer doesn't do much for gaps. It didn't for me. I had about a half centimeter gap in between my two front teeth and the orthodontist used bands to hold the gap. He did this for over a year, yet when I got my braces off and started using a retainer, the gap was back in a month. My teeth continuing to drift may have something to… Read More
Metal Clear Invisable Invisalign (retainer thing)
No you only get a retainer.
No they are used before or after braces depending on your case
Yes; he now wears a retainer on his teeth.
Yes, I had to wear one before braces to allow one tooth to come through.
18 hours a day, at least. And for your entire life you will need a retainer.
Well, you don't decide if you need braces, your dentist tells you that you need to visit an orthadonist who will tell you if you need braces, retainer, expander, ext. It's not your choice to have braces!!!
you will want to leave it on forever because if you stop wearing it your braces will not work and your teeth will move they can go back to normal or get worse if you don't wear your retainer
You can fix a slight overbite with a retainer. Speak with your dentist about options to getting braces for an overbite.
Nope, the retainer is fitted to suit your teeth so as long as you wear it often your teeth will always fit in it and will not hurt.
Simple: Reatiners don't have the brackets. They are normally used to keep teeth in place. Braces have brackets, and are used to align your teeth to make them straight. --------------------------------- The retainer is used after the braces have straightened your teeth and have been removed. It helps you teeth 'retain' their shape.
It's sort of like a clear retainer that works like braces.
Only if you don't wear it often enough.
Ashley has clear ceramic braces. But sorry Ashley they were noticable. She got them off and doesnt have a retainer
You have forgotten to wear your retainer probably four or five times since you got your braces off in the last month so will you need braces again or can you fix this mistake?
It depends on how much your teeth have shifted. If you can get your retainer back in your mouth, you probably don't need to go back into braces. Mind you, the retainer will be quite uncomfortable for a few days as the teeth move. Remember, you must wear your retainer daily for several years, or your teeth will shift. If you are simply not self-disciplined enough to wear a removable retainer, ask your orthodontist for… Read More
It is possible. You could go to a dentist or orthodontist and have them make one for you from a mold they take. They wouldn't refuse your money. However, retainers are technically for keeping what the braces did. Also sometimes retainers are given to people who grind their teeth as they sleep. Yes its possible. i have never had braces in my life, yet today i was given a retainer to wear for at least… Read More
they don't keep your teeth straight forever unless you wear your retainer after wards for a few years but if you even stop wearing your retainer for a few nights you will see your teeth starting to back to the way they were before. so orthodontists recommend wearing your retainer for at least 3 years after you get your braces out.
Yes you can see them in 17 Again when he smiles. He wore a retainer.
Sometimes depending on how bad the overbite is, it can be fixed by wearing a retainer.
no, he had one 2 yeasr ago, before braces
This is not an answer to this this is a question i am haveing a retainer before my braces what is his goning to do to my teeth are you not meant to have braces than a retainer???x Also what i dont get is that why so soon i went to the orther dontist today and (the mould was disguisting
no but on one of his ustream videos he showed us like his retainer or i think itz invisalign but no he doesnt have braces
no you don't because just getting a retainer will put your teeth back because you've already had braces.
Why certainly, I am 15 and I wear braces. I have heard that, depending on the severity of the problem, only a retainer is necessary to achieve the desired straightening. It is supposed to much cheaper too. An orthodontic appliance (straightening retainer) doesn't really make teeth more straight, even if the correction needed is minor. If you are not comfortable wearing braces, you can ask your dentist about invisalign.
Braces are metal bands/wires that are attached to the teeth and can only be removed by a dentist. A retainer is a small piece that is just one long wire that can be removed during meals, and eventually you just wear your retainers at night.
It will probably take 2 years if it's in the correct position, and it's aligned pretty much perfect! But you're not done yet aster you had just taken of your braces you will have to wear a positioner or a retainer. A positioner will help you keep your new aligned teeth into place. So you won't have to suffer crooked teeth again! A retainer is very common. You will get a retainer after you get… Read More
