I need braces REALLY badly but I havn't lost on my teeth, am I able to get them before I lose them all?

My orthodontist thinks that I will be ready in a few months but I still have six more to lose

my son is ten and has a top set of braces. he still has a couple of teeth to lose so it may be his first set. They are making room for the baby teeth to grow out. it all depends on your teeth and what the orthodontist recommends. Everyone is different. good luck and smile!!

well my sister had to get braces and she had not lost all her teeth so the orthodontist pulled the rest of her teeth.

Each case is different. You just need to go with what the Ortho says. Don't worry in a few years your teeth will be perfect. Don't forget to wear your retainers or your teeth will move right back where they are now.

I really hate to say it but I was in your position and I had to get my teeth pulled. Everyone is different though!
