How do I know if I need dental braces?

Many people think their teeth are not perfectly aligned or have a feeling that their bite needs to be adjusted. Dental braces fix a multitude of oral conditions benefiting many children and adults to regain the smile they always desired for. As orthodontic specialists, our team at the Center for Orthodonticshelps you determine the best options that can improve your oral health and cosmetic appearance.

Signs that you need braces

Braces can be perfect for people who have any of the following oral conditions. If any of the conditions are overlooked it can give rise to an additional detrimental health complication.

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Bite issues (overbite, underbite, crossbite, and others)
  • Jaw shifts signifying a developmental issue with jawline and the teeth
  • Difficult time chewing your food

What parents need to know about their children’s teeth?

If the baby teeth of your children are lost relatively early or late and the new teeth (adult teeth) did not come in for a while, this can affect the development of teeth. The ideal age for your child to be seen by an orthodontist is age seven.
