Here are some things you might want to look for to determine whether or not you need braces:
When we refer to your “bite” we are referring to how your upper teeth and lower teeth meet and interact when your mouth is closed. Improper bite can cause irregular wear of your teeth, jaw issues such as TMJ, and chronic headaches. This can also cause chewing problems.
This is probably the most obvious indication that you need orthodontic treatment. An example of crowded teeth can be seen below:
Crowded teeth aren't just a cosmetic defect; they can actually cause health problems. Because food can get trapped between crowded teeth more easily, this can lead to ailments such as tooth decay, and gingivitis. Having overcrowded teeth can also damage self esteem.
There are many different approaches to finding the right orthodontist. The first and easiest way to determine if an orthodontist is qualified is by making sure they're certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. This is a voluntary way for orthodontists to make sure their skills are up tp par.
Finding these orthodontists online has become one of the primary ways that people search for care. Simply googling "orthodontists in ___" followed by your city is a good place to start. Searching online may be the best option for you to make an informed decision.
If you aren't confident in your ability to find orthodontists that are right for you or your child on your own, you can also ask your dentist (or even a family member or friend) for a referral. Your insurance provider might also have a list of referrals.
Yet another potential place to look for orthodontists is to check your state's licenseing board of dentistry. From here, you can check your dentist/orthodontist's record and see if any problems occurred in the past.
Luckily for you, there is a much easier way to find what you're looking for. We've decided to create recommendations for orthodontists based in multiple suburbs across texas while keeping the above criteria in mind.
Simply go to the top of the page, hover over your city, and then select your suburb from the dropdown to recieve our recommendation.
