Signs That You Need Braces
Are you here because you are considering braces for yourself or a loved one and want to learn more about the signs to look for in order to determine whether you need braces? In the following educational video, experienced Buffalo orthodontist Dr. Dominic Colarusso Jr. discusses some indicators and signs that you need braces.
One common sign is an overjet, a horizontal relationship in which the front teeth may be farther forward than the lower teeth, or vice versa. This is an indicator that an individual may not be progressing towards ideal dental-facial development. Other signs include crossbites, in which the top and bottom teeth alternate which is in front of the other, and crowding, as discussed earlier. Any deviation between the upper and lower teeth is an indication that a child should be seen by an orthodontist.
