How to Know if You Need Braces

If you or your child have imperfect smiles that you think would benefit from orthodontics, you may be in search of someone to help you find out how to know if you need braces. We can answer all of your questions about it when you give us a call right away to set up a free consultation. We can help you determine what treatment is best for you or your child to get the best possible smile.

Will My Child Need Braces?

It is a question that a lot of parents find themselves asking themselves when their children start to get older, and their teeth are not straight or there are a lot of gaps.

During a free consultation, we can help you decide if your child needs orthodontic treatment to correct their smile. We usually like to wait until molars come in for us to determine what needs to be done with their teeth but in some cases, braces are necessary beforehand so that there is room for them to come in.

If your child is worried about the visibility of their braces, we can explore the options of clear braces or invisible aligners. These are two very different treatments for crooked teeth that we can provide to your child if they do not want to have the metal options for braces.

Clear braces do a very similar job that traditional metal braces do but the material is, as the name suggests, clear. Invisible aligners are removable and do not get braced to the teeth the same way that clear or traditional braces do. They still perform the task of fixing the alignment of the teeth.

Indicators You Need Braces

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, you can safely assume that it is time to see an orthodontist if you are experiencing issues like crowding of your teeth, being unable to close your lips comfortably, teeth that protrude, asymmetrical facial features, etc.

If your child is having trouble talking because of their teeth, it is time to get them to the orthodontist. If they have an either early or late loss of baby teeth, they may need braces. We can determine all of this during the free consultation.
