• Do You Need Orthodontics in Vancouver WA?

  • Are you considering braces or any other kind of orthodontics treatment in Vancouver WA? We haven’t heard of too many people who are excited about getting braces, especially children and teenagers. However, when people wear braces and end up with a beautiful smile, they will almost always agree that it was worth the pain and inconvenience.

    So how do you know if you need orthodontics treatment? There are many different kinds of orthodontic problems a person can have that would require braces or another kind of orthodontics treatment. Let’s look at a few of the different kinds of mouth problems that can lead to needing braces. They include:

    • An overbite – this is one of the most common reasons for braces. This occurs when the top teeth are extended well past the bottom teeth, and is commonly called buck teeth.
    • An underbite – this is obviously the opposite of an overbite and it is sometimes known as the bulldog look.
    • A Crossbite – this occurs when the upper teeth do not line up slightly in front of the lower teeth, as they should.

    Of course, these are just a few of the common problems that can lead to needing braces. If you need orthodontics care in Vancouver WA, then you should contact us at Columbia Orthodontics at 360-883-3800 or by clicking here.
