Common Reasons You Might Need Braces

dca-blog_caring-for-braces-retainers

Braces for kids and adults can solve a variety of common orthodontic problems. Since tooth and jaw alignment can have a significant impact on both your dental health and your self-esteem, your family dentist may refer you to an orthodontist for a consultation when misalignment is detected. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) advocates orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven in children so that preventative measures can be taken to correct minor problems early. Adults can seek treatment at any age. The first orthodontic evaluation usually includes a visual exam of the teeth and face. Photographs, x-rays and models may be taken to provide more information and help the family orthodontics specialist plan treatment.

Orthodontic braces gradually move teeth into proper position to eliminate gaps, crowding, or overlapping teeth, and align the way your upper and lower teeth fit together when you bite. A misaligned bite is called a malocclusion. Three levels or classes of malocclusion exist. In Class I, the bite is ideal, but crowding or spacing problems may be present. Class II is commonly known as an overbite: the lower first molar is positioned too far toward the back of the mouth while the upper jaw protrudes forward. In Class III misalignment, the first lower molar is positioned close to the front of the mouth while the lower jaw appears to protrude forward. This is also called an underbite.

Affordable braces do far more than improve appearance. Correcting misalignment and bite problems can solve a number of problems, including:

  • Eating and chewing difficulties
  • Jaw pain and TMJ Syndrome
  • Speech problems
  • Sleep apnea
  • Bruxism (tooth grinding)
  • Gum disease and tooth decay

Braces can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy, make eating and speaking easier, and enhance your appearance. To learn more, consult your family orthodontics specialist, or visit the American Association of Orthodontics website.
