Do you have problems with your smile, but you’re not sure if you need braces? Well, we encourage you to call our office today and schedule an appointment with our orthodontist! That way you know for sure if there are adjustments you can make to achieve your smile goals. Until then, you can examine your own smile and decide if you want to consider braces. While you examine your smile, look for the following things:

• Crooked teeth
• Crowded teeth
• Gaps in your smile
• Missing permanent teeth
• Extra teeth
• Overbite
• Underbite
• Improper jaw position
• Jaw joint issues

If you have a child you would like to examine for signs that lead to braces, you can look for the following:

• Irregular loss of baby teeth
• Crooked permanent teeth
• Crowded permanent teeth
• Habits of biting the cheek or roof of the mouth
• Difficulty chewing or biting
• Gaps in the smile
• Disproportionate jaws and teeth compared to the face
• Jaws that have problems, like clicking, popping, or grinding
• Overbite
• Underbite

If you have noticed any of these signs, we encourage you to call our office today and talk to a member of our team. We are delighted to help you schedule an appointment and finally begin the process toward your beautiful and stunning smile!
