How to Determine if You Need Braces

But how do you tell whether your teeth could really benefit from braces? And what do you do if you think you need braces? There are some simple steps you can take to figure this out.

  1. I have a crooked tooth right next to my front tooth, I got the one next to in pulled (my canine) and my crooked tooth is preventing it from growing. Do you think I will need braces to help straighten the tooth and to connect a piece to bring the tooth down?

  2. the dentist says my teeth are fine and really good looking, but they aren't growing together. im 11 about to turn 12 and my teeth aren't together yet. i officially lost all my baby teeth when i was about 7, once all my teeth grew in they stopped growing. my teeth look better than before but it's really embarrassing.

  3. I’m getting braces 😭😭and people you do not want braces because they are gonna kill if you wanna feel pain (which I don’t)then you can consider your self a sycopath or what ever they call it

  4. My teeth (top) are overlapping each other(Sorry for this bad grammar but I am not American) and sometimes my teeth even hurt and I literally chew my cheeks and lip and nails but my parents think I want braces because teenagers nowadays want them for the trend and we can’t afford them but I wouldn’t get them free so what should I do kids?

  5. I have a overbite that I’m pretty sure covers half to more than half of my bottom teeth plus I grind my teeth so it’s only getting worse I have straight teeth but I don’t want this over bite and my jaw hurts when I open it so maybe I need them I have an appointment next month wish me luck I hope I get approved for braces this year

    P.s when I go to my appointment I’ll be sure to mention this and I’ll tell you if I was approved
