Signs You Need Orthodontic TreatmentNovember 22, 2022 7:51 pm
Whether you’re wondering if orthodontic treatment would benefit yourself or your child, it’s never too late to achieve a straighter smile! Orthodontic treatment can solve many dental issues and significantly improve the appearance and health of your smile. Here are 3 issues that orthodontic treatment can address:
- Generally Crooked & Crowded Teeth
- Overbites & Underbites
- Difficulty Eating
One of the most obvious signs that you would benefit from orthodontic treatment is if your teeth look visibly crooked, rotated, or crowded. If left untreated, crooked or crowded teeth can damage surrounding teeth, cause additional misalignment issues, and increase your risk of dental disease.
An overbite and underbite are conditions when your upper and lower teeth do not match up so one arch of teeth protrudes more than the other instead of properly contacting each other. Braces, clear aligners, and headgear can help reposition the jaw and teeth to fix the malocclusion.
Do you commonly bite your tongue or experience difficulty when biting into foods and/or chewing? Orthodontic treatment can realign your teeth and bite to make eating easier and more comfortable.
