Educator Resources for Braces

Open wide! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will teach you all about dental braces and how they work. You’ll learn how braces correct your “bite,” or the way your teeth fit together when you bring them into a normal chewing position. Discover the difference between overbites, underbites, and crossbites. You’ll also find out what kind of dentist will help straighten your teeth and how braces work by pulling your teeth into alignment. Plus, see why headgear and neck gear help keep your pearly whites straight, and why wearing a retainer after braces is essential! Whether or not you’ve ever had a mouthful of metal, you’re sure to enjoy this movie!
