Do I Need Braces?

Do I Need Braces?

Whether you’ve seen people wearing braces at the store or in movies, you’ve often wondered why you don’t have them. Perhaps you are thinking about whether or not your kids need to get these pieces of metal on their teeth. Only an orthodontist can fully answer that question. However, some signs exist that may point to your necessity for these devices.

Your orthodontist will tell you to replace your toothbrush every three months, but if a toothbrush’s bristles look frayed, then throw it away before buying a new one. The best way to remember to replace a toothbrush is by marking a date on a calendar, and it is a good plan to buy new toothbrushes for everyone in your family at the same time.
