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.

We were in an emergent situation after a playground accident/trauma and within 10 mins of calling and upon arrival, we were greeted, evaluated, and treated immediately on our first visit.
