Dental Braces

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.

The last bottom and top teeth in your mouth are your molars

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

User Avatar

yes, but only if you have fillings on the very back molars : )

No you don't always need to remove your molars to have braces and make your teeth straight. Molar extraction is very rarely done, in cases where someone's mouth is very very small compared to the size of his or her teeth.

It is different for everyone, so this might not be the same for you. Some people have to get expanders and other equipment before they get braces.This is what happened for me, but it is very unlikely that your procedures will be exactly the same. All orthodontists are different. This is the basic and typical way to get braces, though.They start by putting spacers on your teeth to widen the space between the molars and make it easier to put the "ring" on your molars. You usually have these for 2 weeks before you get your actual braces. After the 2 weeks is up, you go back to the orthodontist and get the spacers removed. Your orthodontist will then insert the "rings" onto your back molars. You will get two for top braces and two for the bottom braces. If you are getting full-mouth braces, you will have four total. The "ring" acts as an end point for the wire and sits on your back molars. The orthodontist then precedes to glue the brackets to your teeth. After the glue dries, he/she will insert the wire. Small bands are put on the brackets to hold the wire in place. You might be able to choose the color(s) of the bands depending on the type of braces you are getting. The extra wire is cut off and you are finished!

I am 15 and I wear braces so I know what they are for and when you should get them. You only need them when the orthodontist has trouble attaching the back part of the braces onto your molars. Spacers push on the teeth to make room for this device.

They can move any teeth to any place so yea

8 4 on top 4 on bottom

User Avatar

I don't have braces, but I have heard that you almost feel a relief. The back rings on the molars might hurt a little because it is around your tooth but otherwise not so much.

deffinatly not! im 13 and i do not have my 12 year old molars (but the starting to come in i started wearing a bra wen i was a bout 10 so it doesn't mattar

The main reason for spacer, is for braces. They put them in between the back molars, to make space for the bands to hold the braces in place. Another reason is to get a palate expander, space maintainer (nance button) . I got spacers yesterday, for a space maintainer, and i will be getting braces after.

There is a 4 Incisors at the top of your teeth and six at the bottom to cut food, 2 Canines at the top none at bottom to tear food, 4 pre-molars at top and 4 at bottom to (don`t know) food, 3 molars at top and 3 at bottom to chew food, and 1 wisdom tooth at top and 1 at bottom which grow when you are older.

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 larger, 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.

cows have 32 teeth!!!8 incisors on the bottom front6 molars on the top and bottom of each side

There are molars in the primary set of teeth, and three year olds typically get them. The permanent first molars appear in the mouth behind the primary molars, but that does not usually occur until years 5-7. It could happen at age 3, but it would be unusual. Have a dentist take a look to be sure. There are molars in the primary teeth set, and the permanent teeth set as well. Primary molars can erupt as soon as 13 months old. Therefore a 3 year old child should have 8 primary molars in his mouth. Like said above, permanent molars only erupt when the child is between 5 and 7 years old. Therefore it is highly unusual that a 3 year old would have permanent molars in his or her mouth.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean... There are different types of braces. The old fashioned "railroad-tie" braces with bands around the molars, Damon braces (I have these. They are smaller, the wire is heat activated, and more comfortable. They also are cemented, not connected to your teeth with bands). Porcelain braces (white to match teeth but very weak and easy to break brackets) and then some others too. Hope this helps, RH

No, although most people have a tendency of doing so anyway those litter suckers damage brackets and get stuck easily in molars.

User Avatar

No, but it takes much more time to grind food up without them.
