Signs you may need braces
There are certain obvious signs that a patient can benefit from orthodontic care. These mainly deal with teeth function. Functional issues need to be addressed or else the patient will continue to experience difficulties, including suffering pain and discomfort.
Then there are the aesthetic issues caused by tooth misalignment, but which may not impede oral function. Patients may choose to seek professional attention to address aesthetic concerns because of the huge significance having a beautiful smile has on a patient’s life.
The following are some of the most common tell-tale signs that indicate it may be time for a consultation for orthodontic treatment.
You are not happy with your current smile
Overcrowding in the dental arch, tooth or jaw misalignment and gaps between teeth are the most common orthodontic-related problems that can ruin the look of a smile.
In this day and age, having a smile that is deemed warm and engaging is a very sought after personal asset. Without a pleasing smile, it can be incredibly challenging to gain the confidence to broaden one’s social and professional networks and take advantage of career-advancing opportunities.
You experience pain when eating
The dental arch is made up of individual teeth that function as a whole to provide effective masticatory function – the ability to eat and chew food for digestion. An improper bite can make this process uncomfortable for patients, affecting their ability to feed their bodies the nutrition it needs. Orthodontic treatment can bring jaws into natural alignment so as to make biting and chewing easier and more effective.
You find it difficult to clean your teeth
Patients will be surprised to find that to help improve their oral hygiene, they may need to wear braces. This is because teeth that are crooked are not easy to clean – the awkward spaces make it simply harder for toothbrush bristles or floss to get in to remove stuck bits of food. Straightening teeth and bringing them into natural positions easily remove these difficulties.
Your speech may not be clear
Like biting and chewing, orthodontic problems can impact the pronouncing of certain sounds. How teeth are placed in the mouth has been found to have an influence on speech, so wearing braces can help improve communication abilities too.
