3 Reasons Why You May Need Braces

November 29, 2022 12:54 am

Braces work by exerting constant pressure on your teeth for a long period of time to move them into straighter positions. While the idea of a mouth of metal may feel discouraging, braces can be a life-changing solution to many issues! Whether you’re self-conscious about your smile or noticing difficulty cleaning between your teeth, here are three reasons why you may need braces.

  1. You Are Experiencing Pain
  2. Smiling or speaking shouldn’t cause pain or difficulty. If you have mouth, jaw, or biting pain, you may need braces. These issues can be caused by misaligned teeth or a misaligned bite that doesn’t allow the jaw to open or close properly. Orthodontic treatment, like braces, is a great tool to fix teeth and jaw alignment, thus reducing pain and discomfort when biting, chewing, and talking.

  3. You Have a Complex Orthodontic Issue
  4. At OthodonTEX, we offer many orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a healthy, straight smile. Complex orthodontic issues, like an overbite, underbite, or crossbite and rotated or severely crooked teeth, can be effectively treated with traditional braces.

  5. Your Long-Term Oral Health Is at Risk
  6. While you may not notice a negative impact of crooked and/or gapped teeth today, these issues have the potential to contribute to health issues in the future, like headaches, jaw pain, and decay.
