My two top teeth are pretty straight but there kinda curving in and my bottom teeth are doing the same do u thing that they will give me like a retainer or like braces for that?
The dentist may give a person a retainer if their teeth are curved inward. They would probably not get braces if their teeth are not crooked.
My top teeth are pretty straight but my 2 bottom teeth are slightly curving in Also my one molar is way crookedWill they give me braces or like a retainer for that?
A person who's teeth are curved inward, but are not crooked would most likely be given a retainer. Braces are only used for straightening teeth that are crooked.
What is the cost of a retainer for a 14 year with straight teeth with an overbite will the she need braces or a retainer?

yes you can Get a Retainer... And just ask your dentist!
Yes I im getting my braces on un 20 days I have to wear a retainer with my braces because of my over bite so you don't nock off your bottom brackets
There is no way to get your teeth straight without putting anything on them, but you can use Invisalign, which are clear braces/retainer type thing that is somewhat visible.
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.
To keep the teeth together. Sure your braces will make your teeth straight but they can open up a gap again ( if that is the reason you needed braces). So a retanier will only keep the teeth straight
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.
A crown at the front of your tooth but want braces for your front teeth and bottom can you get braces done if you have a crown?
My two front teeth were crowned when I was 10 years old. Replacement caps were done at 20 and 40 years of age. I had braces from age 13 to 16, didn't wear retainer, got braces again at 25, didn't wear retainer, got invisalign at 50 years of age. I'm wearing the retainer. Your teeth will always return to their natural configuration without a retainer. Caps will not affect if or what type of braces… Read More
they don't keep your teeth straight forever unless you wear your retainer after wards for a few years but if you even stop wearing your retainer for a few nights you will see your teeth starting to back to the way they were before. so orthodontists recommend wearing your retainer for at least 3 years after you get your braces out.
A retainer, though neither are cheap a retainer costs $500-1,000 and braces cost $5,000 for a full two year treatment
no they straighten them your teeth and after that if you wear a retainer for 6- 9 months your teeth will be straight if you don't they will go crooked then
You should get a retainer when you have your braces off to stop the teeth moving back into the position the braces has moved them from. Normally Essix retainers are issued. They are clear and totally unnoticeable.
Usually, retainers are used after braces are removed to "retain" the effect of the braces. It is like weaning the braces off the teeth. What does the word retainer mean? Exactly, to retain.
no, but she has a retainer
Why certainly, I am 15 and I wear braces. I have heard that, depending on the severity of the problem, only a retainer is necessary to achieve the desired straightening. It is supposed to much cheaper too. An orthodontic appliance (straightening retainer) doesn't really make teeth more straight, even if the correction needed is minor. If you are not comfortable wearing braces, you can ask your dentist about invisalign.
Most people get retainers after braces to keep their teeth inline. However, some people wear retainers for straightening a particular tooth. For example I had to wear a retainer after getting a tooth taken out, to keep my teeth inline, allowing my second tooth to come through. After this I then got braces and then had to wear a retainer to keep them straight.
It has the same function as braces, but is only a wire. Like a retainer.
She doesn't have a lisp anymore. She did have a lisp because she used a retainer (which she calls a flipper - which she reveals in her book). She had braces for a short while but got then removed and switched for a retainer because she couldn't have braces on Hannah Montana. She doesn't use braces or a retainer now.
When you have braces for a certain amount of time you are required to wear a clear or wire retainer. They keep your teeth from moving. So say you got your braces off and you refuse to wear a retainer or you just don't want to, your teeth will move and then you have to get braces again. Your retainer doesn't have to be in very long.
A retainer is used to keep your teeth straight for a set period of time after braces. After braces come off, it takes a while for your teeth to get used to no braces again, and in that time the teeth might become crooked again. So that's where a retainer comes in, and you wear it until the set period of time is finished. Don't worry if it looks odd, because it'll all be worthwhile… Read More
Simple: Reatiners don't have the brackets. They are normally used to keep teeth in place. Braces have brackets, and are used to align your teeth to make them straight. --------------------------------- The retainer is used after the braces have straightened your teeth and have been removed. It helps you teeth 'retain' their shape.
She should've gotten a retainer and worn the retainer as she was told to. If she didn't follow that, she'll probably have to get braces again.
sometimes it depends, even when u have straight bottom teeth u might need them on the bottom for another reason.
Yes ASAP i did not go and get a retainer when mine broke and ended getting braces twice twice trust me that retainer is way more comfortable than braces
Yes. However, it's more likely that you'll get braces first for at least 6 months (half a year) and then get a retainer. Good luck! x
well, it should only take two years. but, it does depend on if you get a retainer. if you do get a retainer that will be two more years. but just the braces are two year
well it depends on what you want to do. you can get them filled with a filling peice, you can have braces, or a nighttime retainer.
Miley Cyrus does NOT have a retainer...she had braces BEHIND her teeth but now she has gotten them taken off.

Yes they can somewhat help but it won't be as effective as if you used braces.
Yes, Mady Gosselin got braces. Kate Gosselin chose not to have the appointment where Mady got her braces on 'Jon& Kate Plus 8' because she did not know how the process would go for Mady. Yes Mady has braces because in the episode "all smiles" Mady and Cara when to the orthodontist and they said yes Mady does need braces they also said Cara might need braces in a couple years like when she is… Read More
Retainers are most often used after a stint with braces. Teeth have a tendancy to shift back to their original position and wearing a retainer at night will help keep your teeth in alignment. If you haven't had braces and are slightly overcrowded on the top or bottom a retainer is sometimes used to gently allow the teeth to space apart. If you think you may need a retainer, check with your your orthodontist. If… Read More
Metal Clear Invisable Invisalign (retainer thing)
Yes; he now wears a retainer on his teeth.
No you only get a retainer.
No they are used before or after braces depending on your case
Yes, I had to wear one before braces to allow one tooth to come through.
18 hours a day, at least. And for your entire life you will need a retainer.
Well, you don't decide if you need braces, your dentist tells you that you need to visit an orthadonist who will tell you if you need braces, retainer, expander, ext. It's not your choice to have braces!!!
you will want to leave it on forever because if you stop wearing it your braces will not work and your teeth will move they can go back to normal or get worse if you don't wear your retainer
You can fix a slight overbite with a retainer. Speak with your dentist about options to getting braces for an overbite.
Nope, the retainer is fitted to suit your teeth so as long as you wear it often your teeth will always fit in it and will not hurt.
It's sort of like a clear retainer that works like braces.
Yes, or a retainer to straighten your teeth out.
Only if you don't wear it often enough.
yes but you can use invisilign
Ashley has clear ceramic braces. But sorry Ashley they were noticable. She got them off and doesnt have a retainer
You have forgotten to wear your retainer probably four or five times since you got your braces off in the last month so will you need braces again or can you fix this mistake?
It depends on how much your teeth have shifted. If you can get your retainer back in your mouth, you probably don't need to go back into braces. Mind you, the retainer will be quite uncomfortable for a few days as the teeth move. Remember, you must wear your retainer daily for several years, or your teeth will shift. If you are simply not self-disciplined enough to wear a removable retainer, ask your orthodontist for… Read More
