Crooked teeth are a common concern among parents with young children, and it's one of the most common reasons they take their kids to the dentist. In fact, three out of four children develop crowded, twisted or overlapping teeth. This can lead to other problems in the long run, so healthy oral development is dependent on treating the underlying cause.
Braces are a popular orthodontic treatment designed to straighten or align crooked teeth for cosmetic and dental health purposes. Children, teenagers and adults are all able to use braces to align their teeth, correct overbites, underbites and crossbites and most importantly improve their confidence in their smile!
One of the problems with getting orthodontics is that you have to change your diet. Sticky foods and lollies can cause damage that requires an additional trip to the orthodontist to get them fixed. Other foods can get stuck in the braces and cause tooth decay.
