Teeth Braces are commonly used to straighten teeth that aren’t in alignment.
Dental Braces are most often prescribed during childhood or early adolescence. Adults are also getting braces more frequently. In fact, now a days 37 % of our patients with braces today are adults.
If you believe you or a family member could benefit from braces, it’s better to know sooner rather than later. This article will cover the signs that can indicate a person needs teeth braces, as well as info that will help you decide on next steps.
Symptoms that can indicate you need braces include-
- Teeth that are visibly crooked or crowded
- Difficulty flossing between and brushing around crooked teeth
- Frequently biting your tongue or cutting your tongue on your teeth
- Teeth that don’t close over each other properly when your mouth is at rest
- Difficulty pronouncing certain sounds due to your tongue’s position under your teeth
- Jaws that click or make noises when you chew or first wake up
- Stress or fatigue on your jawline after chewing food
The best age for getting braces varies from person to person. Most of the time, treatment with braces begins between the ages of 9 and 14, once children start to get their permanent teeth.
But for some people, treatment with braces as a child is just not possible. Whether because of expense, inconvenience, or lack of diagnosis, many people have to put off orthodontic treatment until their adult years.
Technically, you’re never too old for braces. However, that doesn’t mean you should continue to put off treatment.
Remember that as you age, your jaw will continue to grow, which can cause an increased crowding or narrowing of your teeth. If you wait on treating an overbite or crooked teeth, the problem won’t improve or resolve itself.
The sooner you can speak with a professional about getting braces, the better.
