People usually get braces when they have crooked or crowded teeth, an under or overbite or teeth that are widely spaced apart. Getting braces takes a certain amount of commitment both in terms of time and money. In addition to the initial costs and constant upkeep, patients are usually required to wear a retainer afterward. It helps to have a good understanding of why you need them before taking the plunge.

How Your Mouth Works

Teeth can develop differently across populations and each mouth undergoes unique changes. If wisdom teeth come in forcefully, they can push other teeth out of the way as they make room. If someone's bones are on the smaller side, they may cause the teeth to scrunch together. Jaws can become misaligned and make chewing difficult or even painful to do. Getting braces can correct these imbalances for a more symmetrical smile.

Things to Notice

Bad breath, jaw pain, and difficulty eating sticky or crunchy foods may be good indicators as to why you should consider getting braces. All of these symptoms suggest you need to correct the positioning of your teeth. A misalignment anywhere in the mouth is definitely a cause for concern that will likely only get worse as time goes by. If that wasn't enough, you can effectively address many of these long-term problems.

Aesthetic Goals

Sometimes getting braces may be done as much for improving looks as much as it's done for health reasons. Crowded teeth, teeth that are spaced too far apart, or a major over- or underbite can cause people to feel insecure about how they look. No one wants to feel embarrassed when they open their mouth, and braces can help alleviate those anxieties by providing an effective solution for a straighter smile.

Solving a Problem

The biggest reason why people should consider getting braces is that it's clear they help keep teeth and gums healthy. Flossing and brushing can be difficult when teeth are particularly crowded, and patients won't get the full benefits of regular dental procedures. The easier teeth are to clean, the less likely they are to decay over time. Once all teeth are in their best possible position, regular dental care becomes far easier for both the patient and the dentist.
