Do you really need all your adult teeth for braces?

Depends, you definitely can't get braces on baby teeth, but i've known people to get them while they still have some baby teeth and some permanent teeth. It depends on what your orthodontist recommends, a couple of my friends have had removable braces, and then had fixed ones. If your adult teeth aren't coming through, orthodontists can remove them. Hope this helped :)

Is there a reason to put braces on baby teeth?

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

How many teeth should you loose before you get braces?

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.

Do you need to lose all your teeth before getting braces?

Could you put on braces when you have baby 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.

What happens when you have your braces and your baby teeth falls out?

if your baby teeth falls out, it doesn't matter because it was going to fall out anyway. the whole point of braces are to make your teeth tighten and get them straight so when it was tightening your teeth, i think it caused your baby teeth to wobble and fall. but its ok because at least its not your adult teeth so dont worry! :)

Do you have to remove wisdom teeth to get braces?

no, your wisdom teeth wont stop you from getting your braces, the only teeth removed before getting braces are baby teeth. although getting wisdom teeth removed when theyre coming in is necessary, and if not then straightened teeth can be moved and pushed by incoming teeth, and crowding the mouth.

Will a 13-year-old girl need braces in order for her permanent teeth to come in?

You can't get braces on baby teeth. The girl would have to have her permanent teeth first (and should, by the age of 13). Needing braces is a matter of genetics and heredity. Some people have perfectly straight teeth naturally. Others (like me!) have needed braces. ~ T

What should you do if you're 25 and still have some of your baby teeth?

Hopefully, they are solid, not loose. You can go through getting braces and having your permenant teeth pulled down, but you may not even have permenant ones.(adult teeth) And most insurance don't cover adult ortho. It is not uncommon to still have baby teeth. If they do get loose you may be able to have a bridge made to fill in the gaps.
