How do I know if I need titanium braces?

Gregory J. Jorgensen, DMD
Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics

The best way to know if you need braces is to have a consultation with an orthodontic specialist (an orthodontist). During your initial exam he will examine your face, teeth, supporting structures, and jaw. He will then use all of the findings to explain what is good and what could be improved. He will also explain treatment options like metal braces, clear braces, inside braces, and aligners. Most orthodontists do not charge for this initial evaluation, so call today!
