Hi Dr. Davoudian. I am 15 years old and I want to wear braces but my parents say I have good teeth and that's true but still I'd like to have braces on my teeth. Can that happen ?? Or are the braces just for people with crooked teeth ??

Hi,
There are certain malocclusions that we correct with braces like crowding, crossbites and openbite, etc. There are some people that do not need braces. For example, if a patient’s jaws are in an acceptable harmony with dental system they may not need orthodontic treatment. I’d advise that you see an orthodontist and after the examination, you will given the appropriate diagnosis and treatment planning that suit your specific needs.
Thanks for the question,
Dr. Masoud Davoudian,
Board-certified Orthodontist in Tehran, Iran
