October is National Orthodontics Month
I remember when I was a kid how hard it was on my friends when they were told they needed braces. Having that metal grill over their teeth often meant covering their mouth when they laughed or smiled. However this years National Orthodontics Month finds a very different story. For one thing more and more adults are getting braces thinking that it’s never too late to get those pearly whites straightened. Another difference has been the advent of invisible or brightly colored–even fashionable–braces. And then there are the health benefits.
Crooked and crowded teeth are difficult to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss and lead to chronic headaches and facial or neck pain.
