Are Braces Necessary?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Braces are not only a cosmetic dentistry solution. Orthodontics like traditional braces and Invisalign® will give you a straighter smile, but they also give you a better functioning bite and a healthier mouth.

Our Hoboken dentists at Frank DePaola and Associates can evaluate your bite and tooth alignment to determine if braces will correct your dental issues. Braces can fix bite problems such as:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

When you leave these problems untreated, you can have difficulty cleaning between your teeth, which can lead to decay and eventual tooth loss. You can also suffer with difficulties chewing and problems with your gums when your bite is not aligned correctly. It may be years before you notice the repercussions of misaligned teeth, and then it will require costly restoration work to repair.

Getting Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment is a personal choice, and you should know what all of your options are. Meeting with one of our experienced Hoboken dentists is the best way to find the right solution for you.
