Do I need braces?
Updated: May 6, 2021
DO I NEED BRACES? Many people wonder if they need braces and why?
These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself to see if you need braces: are my teeth crowded? Do I get food stuck in between my teeth? Am I having issues keeping my teeth clean due to teeth overlapping? Do I have an overbite? Do I have underbite? Am I self-conscious of my smile?
If you answer yes to one or more of the questions above, then most likely you do need braces. Braces are good to straighten your teeth and correct overbite/underbite.
The next questions you should ask are: Do I want braces? If you answer yes, then that’s great! To decide to improve your smile can be hard but the reward is great! A good smile can increase self-confidence, improve mood, lead to better relationships and younger appearance!
What if I don’t want braces? I don’t want the braces look... No worries! This is a very common question. There are other options like clear aligners such as Invisalign or invisible braces such as Inbrace. They work just as well as conventional braces or actually better in some cases!
