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

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.

An orthodontist can put braces on your teeth

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.

Sometimes people who put braces on, once they take them out, they can have yellow teeth, possibly from the glue.

You get your teeth removed before braces are put on.

It all depends, everybody is different. Lots of people have braces at different ages. You can basically have braces put on once you have lost all your baby teeth. The younger (teens) you are the better as the teeth move a lot easier.

if your bottom teeth are okay and straight then they are not going to put braces in the bottom teeth , but if your top teeth are crooked and not straight , then you will only get braces at the top.

nope just baby teeth so the permanent teeth with will grow in place of the baby teeth have time to grow before the brace is put into place luv ya xx

You can get braces for any type of teeth that you may have. A dentist will be able to let you know if you are able to get braces.

your teeth must be not in its correct spot if your teeth are good then do not put on braces or less your teeth will be so bad than it was

You can be any age as long as you have all your adult teeth, or if your dentist feels it is appropriate to put braces on your teeth.

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, I have procelin crowns and I am getting braces. They just had to fix my teeth first before they put on the braces. Good luck:)

No. An orthodontist who is trained in putting braces on to affectively straighten your teeth should put them on you.

Yes, you can have braces on the inside part of your teeth, they're called lingual braces.

No, orthodontists do not break teeth to apply braces to your teeth. However, if the orthodontist has determined that your mouth is overcrowded, it may be necessary to have some teeth extracted if they will interfere with the plan of correction. Once the braces are put on and the teeth begin to shift, they will gradually fill in the spaces where the other teeth were.

what you put on your teeth to make them straight.

NOOO WAY!!! Not ever. They just glue the braces onto your teeth, it doesnt hurt, i got braces be4.

Yes you can get braces having wisdom teeth, and the wisdom teeth will not get brackets put on them but it is best to get the wisdom teeth removed with in at least the first year of having your braces to avoid your teeth not being able to shift correctly

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.

Actually, she still has them. She got braces put on the back side of her teeth, called lingual braces, in 2006.

Fake braces are tiny beeds that look like braces. They are waxed on teeth and put in a paperclip.
