Peter, the patient
Dear Dr. S.,
We think our teenage daughter needs braces, but are worried about the cost. Will it harm her mouth if we wait a while for orthodontic treatment?
Sincerely,
Sam W.

Dear Sam,
The simple answer to your question is yes – it could in fact hurt your daughter if you wait too long for orthodontic treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontists spearheaded the survey in October in honor of the month geared toward oral health awareness. Adults were asked questions such as whether they were too old for treatment and how they would look during treatment, particularly if they were undergoing treatment with traditional metal braces instead of a more aesthetic option such as Invisalign.

“A smile is one of the most simple, inexpensive and wonderful things in the world.”

As powerful and easy as a smile is, sometimes the way we feel about ourselves and our appearance make it difficult to complete this powerful action. There are actual psychological benefits to smiling, and by not believing that you have a good smile, it can adversely affect the mental well being of an individual. It can make you want to keep to yourself and become highly self-conscious. On the other hand, having a good smile can add to the personality of an individual.
