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 :)

well if you have all of your adult teeth then you can have braces cause my dentist says that if you need braces then you need all of your adult teeth!

I think the youngest age to have braces is around 11/12 as all of your milk teeth have to be out and all of your adult teeth must be fully grown. However, if your teeth are really bad and desperetely need braces then they will remove your milk teeth.

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.

it doesn't matter how old you are but you need to have all of your adult teeth your adult teeth should be strait but if not you should get braces now it could be to late if you wait. !

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 ;)

you can't, its really up to your dentist if you get braces or not. and even then the orthodontist will check your teeth to see if you need them.

you need braces if your teeth are really crooked and then your orthadonditcs will tell you if you need braces that's what happend to me and im getting them today!!!!!! today is 2/22/2011 yeah!!!!!

It all depends on the space between your teeth.

I'm not really sure if you can without braces because I haven't hard of anything apart from braces that can keep your teeth straight. It also depends on your teeth alignment because I had too many teeth that didn't fit in my jaw so I had to get removable braces. If you have an overbite or underbite you probably need braces

she has them on the back of her teeth.

yeah you do. i need them and my teeth do that, you need braces to fix all that.

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.

Only some teeth that will screw with the braces and need to be taken out. Putting the braces on is 100% PAINLESS. You will feel your teeth getting sore for about a week or two after, though.

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, you can have braces but it is best to get them only if you really need them. edition: My braces were three thousand dollars. Only get them if you need them (again) because they are very expensive. They don't hurt to much, but they aren't awesome feeling. My teeth were really bad but, now they are pretty good. One of my teeth was back on the roof of my mouth for about 2 years. But, always where your retainer after your braces!

u NEED braces if ur teeth r not straight.

You need braces if your teeth are not growing in the same direction, or are spacing apart. Brushing your teeth has an influence on this, but it is often determined from birth.

you can not get your braces off faster because you need braces if your teeth are not allinged well. that means that you are going to need braces for as long as your teeth need them. that is usually for quite a while.

If your teeth look really bad or when you bite down one tooth goes in a bad direction which will over time make your tooth fall out including adult know that you need braces when you have a over bite and slanted teeth...if you eat and food gets inside your teeth and it starts hurting then you defintly need braces.also if your'e having trouble loosing baby teeth. You may also may know you need them by seeing your teeth and noticing they are probably going to overlap.

You can't really. You need something to convince them to move - usually braces.

you need braces when your teeth are crooked if you have an overbite like me which means your top teeth stick out farther than your bottom teeth, an underbite whitch is the opposite of an overbite and sometimes if there are spaces between you teeth. but braces are not that bad don't worry if you have to get them

If your teeth still need them, then you are not too old. There are even adult braces available. If you're feeling embarassed, just know that it's natural.

you say "my teeth are bent and i need braces" what if their not

Well, You are most likely to get braces if you have a gap in your two front teeth and you would need a full set of braces ! But the good thing is that when your sixteen your teeth will be nice and straight with no gaps! This is because having the braces in for two years really makes a good difference! I am getting a full set of braces in a few weeks , not just because my front two teeth have a gap in them but also to straighten my teeth! Don't worry and let the dentists do their job. :)

ya i really need braces but we don't have the money for it what should i do and i need them pretty soon tostiuped head that's the stuipedest thing ive ever heard before
