While it’s no secret that children and adults seek braces for a straighter smile, there are other candidates who benefit from treatment, including those dealing with:

  • Overbites: When the top teeth extend far over the lower front teeth
  • Gaps between teeth: May occur after an injury or extraction causing teeth to shift
  • Underbites: When the lower bottom front teeth extend too far over the upper front teeth
  • Crowding: Teeth may be crossed or too close together as there is not enough room in the mouth to accommodate them
  • Crossbites: When the top teeth come down slightly in front of the bottom teeth when biting
