How do I Know if I Need Braces?
- Posted on: May 20 2013
In some instances, the need for braces is obvious. If your malocclusion is pronounced or you have issues such as significant gaps, orthodontics will most likely be necessary to address the problem. However, the best way to determine if braces are necessary is by having your teeth and jaw examined by an experienced orthodontist.
If you live in the Fairfax or McLean areas of Northern Virginia, one of the orthodontists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics can provide you with a full examination and details about all of your treatment options.
What Braces Fix
Braces are designed to address malocclusion, which can include:
- Crooked presentation
- Gaps and spaces
- Under bite
- Cross bite
- Over jet
Some of these issues can be corrected by braces alone, while others can be addressed through solutions such as Invisalign® or porcelain veneers. The best way to determine which solution is ideal for your smile is by meeting with an experienced orthodontist that offers a range of options and can customize your treatment to meet your specific needs.
If you live in Fairfax, McLean, or surrounding areas of Northern Virginia and would like to learn if braces are right for you, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics today to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced orthodontists.
