Increase Your Self-esteem With a Gorgeous Smile
Margi Preus is a children’s writer who believes that a smile becomes you while you are developing a personality. Smiling a lot means that you have high self-esteem and are comfortable with the way that your teeth look. An orthodontist will recommend having a child’s teeth examined when she gets her first permanent teeth. In some cases, a young child only needs partial braces to repair a few malocclusions so that the rest of her teeth can grow in the proper alignment. However, if you wait until your child is a teenager, then it becomes more difficult to straighten her teeth.
