Do I Need Braces?

Person getting teeth examined by dentistThinking of improving your smile alignment? Wondering if it’s time to schedule your child’s first orthodontic consultation? Orthodontic braces are the best way to correct crooked teeth, overcrowding, overbites, underbites and jaw position. Here are a few things to consider and look out for when deciding if braces are right for you.

Signs You Need Braces:

  • Your Teeth Are Crowded – Overcrowding and overlapped teeth can make it difficult to keep your teeth clean. It’s harder to floss and easier for food particles to get stuck. Braces can help correct overcrowding and improve smile health.
  • It Feels Funny When You Bite Down – Do you feel like your teeth don’t fit together right when you bite down? You might have a big space between your upper and lower teeth, making it hard to chew. Braces can help correct this overbite or underbite.
  • Your Teeth are Crooked – Crooked teeth are another reason to get braces. With some alignment, you can straighten out crooked, spaced out and overlapping teeth.
  • You Want To Feel More Confident – If you feel uncomfortable smiling because your teeth aren’t straight, braces can help you create a beautiful smile that you’re proud to show off.
