bracesAll around the world, orthodontists recommend braces to their patients. But why do people get braces in the first place? If you’ve been wondering if braces could be right for you, this article is going to go over a few dental conditions that braces can help fix.

Correct a Misaligned Bite: Approximately one in five Americans does not have a faultless bite. In order to help get an ideal bite, braces may be used to correct the jaw’s structure. There are many different types of bites. The most common types of misaligned bites are overbites and underbites. An overbite is when the upper jaw is too far in front of the lower jaw. An underbite is when the lower jaw is too far in front of the upper jaw. Any sort of misaligned bite can cause a variety of problems like jaw tension or pain and teeth damage. Fortunately, wire and bracket braces along with the help of rubber bands can help shift a misaligned bite into the correct placement.

Straighten Crooked Teeth: Hardly anyone is born with naturally straight and perfect teeth. And while some people like their crooked teeth, others want to take actions to straighten them out. Both traditional braces and Invisalign can be used to shift teeth into the straightest positions for the patient’s mouth. Invisalign for teens and adults is a popular option because it’s harder to tell the patient has braces. Straight teeth don’t just look nice, but they’re easier to clean and maintain as well. They can also promote more evenly chewing and reduce the risk of teeth grinding. Because of all of these benefits, utilizing braces to straighten crooked teeth can significantly improve overall health.

Correct Spacing Issues: Like crooked teeth, many people have natural space issues. Incorrect spacing or overcrowding of teeth can lead to dental issues for a patient as well as a lowered confidence. Spacing issues may be caused by missing teeth, too-big or too-small teeth, or jaw conditions. Crowding can occur when teeth don’t have enough room to properly erupt from the gum. Both of these spacing issues can be corrected by braces and lead to less discomfort in the patient’s mouth.

With the help of an experienced orthodontist, both teens and adults can experience many benefits from braces. Whether it’s a misaligned bite or awkward spacing, an orthodontist can help you get the smile you want and deserve.
