Braces and Retainer Question ?!

Question: Braces and Retainer Question !?
If you get braces do you need to wear a retainer all your life !?!? if you get them at the age of 12 !? Does it depend how crooked your teeth are!?

Also I have an under bite but i dont think its that bad and my mates mum is a dentist and he told me that he got these rubber bands that he put on his back teeth to pull his jaw back!?!?

thank youWww@Answer-Health@Com

n o not all people have to wear them alot or more than along time some people will have to wear them like two years after!~Www@Answer-Health@Com

No, you don't have to wear a retainer for life when you get braces!. I think when I got my braces off (I was probably 14), I had to wear a retainter for about 3 months!. It's just to make sure your teeth will stay in the place the braces put them!.

I don't know much about the rubberbands, though I've known people who've had them!. Ask your orthodontist and see what they think!. Good luck!Www@Answer-Health@Com
