More than likely, you are getting a referral from your family dentist who has recommended braces to improve the overall health of your smile and bite.

Some common problems referred to as malocclusions, or more commonly a “bad bite” can also cause other problems linked to a “bad bite”:
Premature wear of the teeth and protective enamel
Increases in the chance of injury to the teeth and jaw joints
The first step is to address any problems you may have with your teeth.
Below are some common conditions of a bite that braces can solve:
Upper Front Teeth Protrusion – The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.
Overbite – The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
Crossbite – The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
Openbite – Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.
Crowding – Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.
Spacing – Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.
Dental Midlines Not Matched – This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
