Yes, that is why the dentist or orthodontist takes the proper x-rays before bracketing the teeth. Later during the treatment, root inclinations should be considered too, and that could only be seen if more x-rays (panoramic) are taken.

What are the negatives of keeping a baby tooth that doesn't have a permanent tooth coming in behind it when the person has braces on?

I used to have braces and faced the same problem. Instead of putting a bracket on that baby tooth, they justleave the wire that connects the brackets near the top of the tooth. After you lose the baby tooth and the new one growns in, a bracket will be glued on.

How is a tooth pulled down into place when wearing braces?

Well they attach a bracket to the impacted tooth and then attach a chain to that bracket and then to your wire on your braces. Every time you go to the orthodontist, they remove a link in the chain and in before you know your tooth will break through the gum. I had this done about two years ago.

What happens when a bracket on your brace is moving?

It is most likely detached from the tooth, the best course of action will be to consult an Orthodontist so they can re-glue the bracket. There are no real problems, it just means that particular tooth with no bracket won't be moved by the braces, but it will probably be moved by the other teeth around them.

How do you bond brackets?

There are many steps to bond orthodontic brackets but usually this is the process: First the teeth are cleaned using pumice to remove any debris. Second the teeth are acid etched between 15 and 40 seconds, and the teeth are given a good rinse followed by a blast of air to dry them. Next, a bonding agent is placed on the tooth surface where the bracket is going to be placed, and on the back of the bracket as well. Some clinics will place ortho cement on the back of the bracket for better adhesion. Finally the operator places the bracket directly on the prepared tooth surface, adjusts it as necessary, and light cures it to set the bracket it place.

Can you get braces if you have a loose tooth?

Yes you can! I had not lost all my baby teeth before I had braces, so they simply removed them and put the brackets on around the gaps. An orthodontist will most likely put the braces on, but skip your loose tooth, as the brackets are put on individually. Once it falls out and starts to grow in, they'll put a bracket on it to join the others in the treatment. Hope this helps!
