「牙套」的英文怎麼說?

「牙套」在英文裡的說法叫 braces [ˋbresɪz]

它都是用複數,動詞要用的是 wear

比如:

She wears braces. (她(平常)戴牙套。)

He wore braces for three years. (他曾戴了三年牙套。)

These days, a lot of people wear braces for cosmetic reasons.
(現在有很多人戴牙套是為了美容的原因。)

只裝上面或下面的牙套還是要用複數,後面再加「上面或下面的牙齒」

比如:

She wears braces on her upper teeth. (她(平常)上面的牙齒戴牙套。)

但如果是指「裝上牙套」,則要用使役動詞 have braces put on

或是 get braces

例如:

Jenny had braces put on last month.
(珍妮上個月裝了牙套。)

The dentist suggested that I get braces.
(牙醫建議我裝牙套。)
(註:suggest後面不可用suggest to V 的句型,而且suggest that 人 要接原型動詞,詳情請看這裡)

David got braces for his lower teeth.
(大衛幫下面的牙齒裝了牙套。)

    您好,想請問Sammy老師,上面的例句 He wore braces for three years. (他曾戴了三年牙套。) 有for three years為什麼不需要用完成式呢?想了很久希望老師能解惑 謝謝~

    for + 時間本來就沒有一定要用完成式呀, 像 I will study in the U.S. for three years. 這樣的句子就是未來式. 它基本上只是要表達持續多久的時間.
