Why the Need for Braces?
When it comes to the hardest substance in the human body, nothing can take the place of the teeth. These small, calcified structures found within the oral cavity is the primary reason why human beings are able to tear and cut their food into smaller pieces thus, preventing choking.
Humans are given two sets of teeth. The first set, known as the primary teeth, usually appear during the 6th month and are commonly shed off upon reaching the age of seven. This is the time when the permanent teeth take the place of the primary teeth.
During the formation of the teeth, several factors can come into play causing it to have a number of abnormalities. For instance, a prior infection of a primary or baby teeth can lead to Turner's hypoplasia in the nearby permanent teeth. A more simple case is the act of drinking too much soda or coffee which leads to teeth discoloration. There were also those who, because of poor habits and/or genetics, developed a prominent overbite or under-bite. It is in cases like these that orthodontists come into play.
Choosing the right orthodontist is important. Your Orthodontist has been in the industry for quite some time so he would be able to provide you with sound advice on how to better correct your bite.
