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!

My two front teeth were crowned when I was 10 years old. Replacement caps were done at 20 and 40 years of age.

Can you get braces if you have missing teeth?

If you have several missing teeth in the front of your mouth, then it is NOT advised to do so! This is only because your teeth will be aligned and there will be no room for the new tooth to grow. It is better to have all your teeth grown back, then started; I doubt the orthodontist would put braces on if you had missig teeth. ~I have braces with chains and rubber bands~

Do people get to choose what color braces they want?

I think you can choose what color bands you want, for the front of your braces. Though the braces themselves are just silver, or metal-colored I guess. I really am not sure, since I have never had braces, but my friends have had them.

If my bottom front teeth are too crowded can the dentist pull one out and leave only three and put braces to push them together or is it odd to have only three middle bottom teeth?

Your best option is to discuss this with a qualified orthodontist. Removing teeth is fairly common in orthodontic treatment, however, it usually involves removing a tooth or teeth further back in the mouth and then spreading out the front teeth with braces to close that gap. This way your normal appearance is preserved.

How do you know if you need braces?

There are many ways to tell if you need braces. First of all there are different types of "bites" you could have The most common is the over, when your front teeth protrude too far. Second is an underbite, which is when your bottom teeth cover your top teeth. Third is called an open bite which occurs when you have space between you bottom and top teeth when you smile. The most common reason for one to need braces is if they have excess spacing between their teeth. Another reason is if your teeth are "misaligned". Your teeth are "misaligned" when the space between your top teeth is not perfectly aligned with the space of your bottom teeth. One of the last reasons is when your teeth are crowed, which simply means you don't have enough room in your mouth for your teeth! This is fixed one of two ways, braces or getting your teeth pulled most likely followed by braces.

Can you play a flute with a front gap in your teeth?

Of course! In fact I did for about three years. But if you do have a gap in your teeth I suggest seeing the orthodontist. If you do happen to get braces you must mention to your orthodontic that you play a wind instrument. A common type of braces for people who play a wind instrument are called lingual braces. Instead of being glued to the front of your teeth lingual braces are glued to the back, they are a great solution for musicians, however they do cost much more than regular metal braces.

Do all teeth get braced during braces?

No. If you only have a problem with your top teeth, only your top will get braces. Sometimes the ortodontist doesn't put braces on the back teeth until later. Sometimes, although this doesn't happen much, the braces will only be placed on the front four teeth.
