Why Do I Need Braces?
This is a question we get all the time from kids, teenagers, and adults. While it’s obvious that braces are used to correct a variety of misalignment issues, here are a few of the specific circumstances where braces are recommended.
1 Upper Front Teeth Protrusion
The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.
The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap.
Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.
The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.
Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.
Dental midlines not matched
This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
