Can you get braces on only your bottom teeth?
My son's teeth look good on the top, so says our dentist, but he has crowding on the bottom that braces would help. So can i get him braces for the bottoms only? How much cheaper would that be?

yea you can get it it on the bottom dummy

Yes it is possible. But it does depend on lots of different factors. Book a consultation for your son with a consultant orthodontist to discuss his options.

It depends. if his bite is not correct say that the top teeth bite over the bottom ones then he will need on the top as well. ask your dentist what kind of bite does he have - class 1 2 or 3.

yes it is possible, unless your dentist want to earn more money ;-)

You can get braces on bottom teeth only.

A full set of braces is about $3,000, so the bottom should only cost $1500.

Yes you can get braces only on the bottom. It would probably be half a full set. But that depends if he doesn't need anything else. And if you want clear braces or regular. Best thing to do is ask an orthodontist what is best for your child. Best wishes.

You can get braces anywhere or on one or two teeth if you want but I don't know about price. My guess is that it's a flat fee if you do the entire mouth but it may go price by teeth if you don't do the whole mouth and it may also have to deal with the location of the teeth in the mouth.


Depending on the orthodontist, possibly. I would doubt that any "good" orthodontist would do that though, especially for a child. He's still growing, so to only correct the lower arch would mean that the upper arch would probably eventually need work too. Plus, there may be jaw discrepancies that you are unaware of that would need upper and lower braces. It may save you some money, but I would suggest doing upper and lower all at one shot. If he's older than 17 you could probably just do the lowers, but if he's younger than that, then he still has a few years to grow and his teeth will continue to change. Especially if he doesn't have all of his permanent teeth yet. I would suggest visiting a few orthodontists for a consultation, they are usually very cheap or even free. See what they say. They're the experts. You would be doing him a huge favor though, by straightening his teeth. Good luck!
