Candidates for Henderson Braces

Orthodontics in Henderson

Are you considering braces, but don’t know whether or not you’re a good candidate for orthodontic treatment? If so, then our Henderson orthodontist may be able to provide some more insight for you.

Braces Are Not Just for Straightening Teeth

Many people believe Henderson braces are for simply straightening out our teeth. While true, braces are actually used to correct orthodontic issues that have developed since birth. Most of the issues interfere with our mouth’s capacity to function normally, causing issues with our bite that make chewing inefficient, develop speech issues, among others abnormalities.

Braces are used to correct these types of orthodontic issues:

  • Misaligned, crowded teeth
  • Gaps in between teeth
  • Under bites
  • Overbites
  • Cross bites
  • Closed bites
  • Other issues

If you suspect you may possess any of the issues above, then you will likely be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign® which is recommended for adults. Other options include traditional metal braces, lingual braces, and metal braces with clear brackets.

The First Step Begins with an Orthodontic Consultation

The most important step anyone can take in his or her Henderson braces journey is to begin with a goals-oriented discussion with a certified orthodontist. As we mentioned, braces are more than just straightening choice. They are way to correct issues that you may or may not even be aware exist in your mouth. The only real way to find out is not by reading information online, but by sitting down face to face with your orthodontist.
