It is unlikely that you get braces with baby teeth, but if they are molars or larger teeth you can.

They don't put braces they wait for the baby teeth to fall out and if the adult teeth come in wrong then they put braces.

You can't replace teeth for braces - either you still have baby teeth that need to come out or you have too many teeth and the extra teeth need to be extracted.

Depends, you definitely can't get braces on baby teeth, but i've known people to get them while they still have some baby teeth and some permanent teeth. It depends on what your orthodontist recommends, a couple of my friends have had removable braces, and then had fixed ones. If your adult teeth aren't coming through, orthodontists can remove them. Hope this helped :)

Braces on baby teeth can be used to make room for incoming teeth if there isn't enough room naturally. Sometimes a kid will not have certain baby teeth or will lose them earlier than normal and the space will close, and braces or extractions may be necessary to make room for the permanent teeth

Yes you can still get braces even if your grownup teeth haven't grown in yet. The braces will then be used to straighten out yur teeth for your adult teeth.

yes because the braces would straigten your teeth still

There is no specific "age" for getting braces. Most of it depends on how many baby teeth you still have to loose and how fast new ones are coming in.

You will have to get braces if your teeth are twisted but you don't have to get them until your 20,30 or 40 years old and your teeth can untwist if you lose all your baby teeth I think.

User Avatar

yes, you need to have lost all your baby teeth and have your adult teeth in. Because the role of braces is to have straight teeth for life --- which would be your new grown in teeth. you wouldn't want braces on baby teeth that would just eventually come out.. that would be a waste ;)

In order to receieve braces you need to have lost all of your baby teeth. The answer to your question is yes, I know of a couple people who had to get adult teeth pulled to get braces. So yes.

I'm 12 and I still have 2 baby teeth. But I'm getting them pulled tomorrow then next week im getting spacers then 3 days later getting braces(:

User Avatar

You need to have lost all of your baby teeth and all of your grown up teeth need to have if not fully but almost fully come in. That is completley false, i have got braces and i have a baby tooth still, what they do is that they don't put a thing on that tooth and they give you 3 months to wobble your baby tooth out.

NO! Do not do that to any baby, (Or someone with baby teeth). It would be very painful since there teeth are smaller than adult size teeth and the braces wouldn't fit on those small teeth. And plus, Why waste your money? The teeth are going to fall out anyway, Gapless or not.

There isn't a specific age, but once your baby teeth fall out, you can get braces.

User Avatar

no, your wisdom teeth wont stop you from getting your braces, the only teeth removed before getting braces are baby teeth. although getting wisdom teeth removed when theyre coming in is necessary, and if not then straightened teeth can be moved and pushed by incoming teeth, and crowding the mouth.

User Avatar

yes if u losted your frount 4 teeth

User Avatar

They will be out by then, there is no point moving no permanent teeth

User Avatar

if your baby teeth falls out, it doesn't matter because it was going to fall out anyway. the whole point of braces are to make your teeth tighten and get them straight so when it was tightening your teeth, i think it caused your baby teeth to wobble and fall. but its ok because at least its not your adult teeth so dont worry! :)

Once all of your baby teeth have fallen out and grown in!
