Signs you Might Need Braces

by James Webster on September 5, 2017 , Comments Off on Signs you Might Need Braces

A lot of people these days have or have had braces. Braces are great when you are experiencing some of the signs we have gathered below to let you know braces could be in your future. You can trust the dentists at Roger’s Center for Dentistry in Spanish Fork, UT to give you the best when it comes to your oral health care. Look over the signs we have provided below to help you in deciding if braces are right for you.

 

Crowding

Crowding basically means that there is insufficient space in the mouth for all the teeth. Without the proper room for all those teeth, the teeth crowd each other resulting in crooked teeth. Unfortunately, crowding tends to get worse over time and can make even the simple task of brushing and flossing more complicated, requiring more time and effort to clean all teeth properly. If the problem isn’t addressed you could have some serious oral health issues arise. If caught early enough in children the crowding issue can easily be fixed. The issue can still be fixed in adults with the help of our experienced dentists at Roger’s Center for Dentistry in Spanish Fork, UT.

 

Overbite

An overbite refers to the vertical and horizontal overlap of the front teeth. The severity of the overbite can vary but an overbite is usually noticeable when the front teeth stick out much farther than the bottom teeth. Depending on the severity of the overbite you could experience other discomfort and oral health issues.

 

Underbite

An underbite is an abnormal bite in which all the upper front teeth are behind the lower front teeth. This sign is usually associated with disproportionate jaw size and may cause the following issues:

 

  • Imbalanced facial appearance
  • Accelerated facial ageing
  • Difficulty biting and chewing

 

The dentists at Roger’s Center for Dentistry can easily asses your oral health needs and help you in determining if braces are right for you. For more information about our dental office make sure you check out our website.
