after having teeth removed and braces put in I was told by a friend that it would change my smile and jaw line and would make me age 20 years, her child's ortho told her that. I have a small jaw. My ortho said he never heard of that. Is this true?

  • Your orthodontist is right. Ortho treatment is done to enchance the beauty of the face which is by giving beautiful smile. After braces treatment your smile do change but for the better ment. The ortho treatment is a science where every thing is calculated by taking ceph and then the treatment is planned. It is not that the teeth are removed and bracse are put. So you should not worry and have faith in your orthodontist. In today's time most of the children are getting ortho treatment to have good smile which boost up one's confidence. if you want to know anything about braces like how to take care of the braces and what to eat with braces then you can browse our website
