Here are some problems with your teeth that may require orthodontics (BRACES):

Overbite – In this case, the upper front teeth appear to stick out over the lower teeth.

Underbite – Here, the lower teeth may appear too far forward, while the upper teeth are set too far back.

Crossbite – You know you have a crossbite when your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth when your mouth is closed.

Open bite – Some people have a vertical gap between the front lower and upper teeth when biting down. This is called an open bite.

Misplaced midline – Here, the center of your upper and lower front teeth don’t line up.
Spacing – In this case, your teeth don’t seem to fill up your mouth. There appear to be random gaps or spaces between teeth.

Crowding – This is what happens when the dental ridge in your mouth doesn’t have room for all your teeth.

Benefits of Braces
You might think that straightening your teeth only has aesthetic benefits, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Crooked teeth can be harder to clean, which can lead to tooth decay or periodontal disease. Teeth that don’t fit correctly can make it harder to chew, leading to headaches, shoulder or back pain, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

How Do Orthodontic Treatments Work?
Orthodontic treatments involve different types of appliances used to retrain muscles, slowly move teeth, and affect your jaw’s growth by placing gentle pressure on your teeth and jaw.
