Do I Need Braces?

You may need braces if you have overcrowded, crooked, misaligned, or gapped teeth. However, braces can also help repair a bad bite and a jaw that shifts and clicks. Braces can help with jaw realignment, whether your issues are genetic or from an injury. For some people, Invisalign clear aligners are enough to straighten teeth, but metal braces are necessary for those with more advanced needs.

Why Should I Choose Braces?

There are a number of reasons braces may be a great option for you, including the following:

  • Non-removable – This may not seem like an advantage to wearing braces, but this is definitely a good thing for teens or adults who would likely not wear Invisalign as often as needed. Since you can’t take your braces on and off, you don’t have to worry about whether you’re keeping them in long enough.
  • Effective for simple or complex orthodontic needs – Braces can help someone who just needs to straighten some slightly crooked teeth or someone who has major crowding due to extra teeth.
  • Promote future dental health – If you have an uneven bite, this could lead to chipped or worn teeth in the future. Braces can keep this from happening down the road, and can also protect you from other issues with your teeth or jaw.
  • Prevent gum disease – Gum disease often occurs when flossing doesn’t happen regularly enough. If teeth are overcrowded, it may be difficult to floss in certain areas. By straightening your teeth, it becomes easier to floss and prevent gum disease.
