6 Reasons Why You Need Braces by Dentalgist: 10:36am On Oct 28, 2019
Whether young or old, there is never a late time to discuss with your dentist on the need for Braces. Scattered or crooked teeth have profound effects on individuals’ self-esteem, confidence, relationships. The negative impacts are countless. The good news is that not ‘well-arranged’ set of teeth can be arranged, thanks to the Orthodontists, dentists specialized in the arrangement of teeth.

In this write-up, we have highlighted 6 reasons why you may need Braces:

1. Crossbites
Crossbites occur when the jaw deviates to one side with an improper fit of the upper and lower teeth from left to right or front to back.

Crossbites can lead to worn and chipped teeth, jaw pain and asymmetric growth of the jaws. Left untreated, the crossbite will require more extensive treatment later in life and significant jaw surgery in the most-severe cases.




2. Underbites
When the lower jaw sits forward of the upper jaw.

Do your lower teeth overlap your top front teeth when you smile? If so, you may have an underbite a dentist can correct. If left untreated, an underbite can increase your risk of injury while eating or talking.

When the lower jaw sits forward of the upper jaw.

3. Open bites

When the front teeth don’t touch.

Smile in front of the mirror. Is there a noticeable gap between your upper and lower teeth? If so, you may have an openbite. Patients with openbites often have difficulty eating or speaking. They may also have embarrassing habits, such as tongue thrusting. If you have an openbite, we can correct your smile with teeth braces.

4. Deep bites
A deep overbite or deep bite occurs when the lower front teeth bite too close or into the gum tissue behind the upper front teeth in the roof of the mouth. … A deep bite can damage the health and function of your jaw and may cause damage to your teeth and gums.

5. Crowded Teeth
Crowded teeth can make it difficult to brush and floss. Fortunately, your dentist orthodontist can get you started on the right orthodontic treatment for your smile


6. Spaces Between Teeth
Closing the gaps in your smile is more than just a cosmetic concern, it’ll also help protect your oral health. If your teeth are widely spaced apart, food particles can get stuck along your gums to cause bad breath, gum disease, and other issues.

Plaque and tartar love to hide in between teeth, especially if they’re irregularly spaced.
