Want to get braces.

Hi. I have attached an OPG X ray. Do I need braces for my teeth. I feel like I have a lot of gaps between each tooth. What would you suggest?

OPG doesn't give a true picture of your condition.  what is needed is to check your oral cavity clinically followed by another xray called lateral cephalometry. so pl visit some dentist preferably an Orthodontist for an opinion

As an Orthodontist, only opg is not sufficient to finalise the treatment plan. We also need lateral cephalogram along with clinical photographs. Please visit an orthodontist to get a proper advice. Thank you.
