Health Tip: Does Your Child Need Braces?
-- A child's smile is always adorable, but braces may be needed to straighten that smile and resolve problems with the pearly whites.
The Nemours Foundation says braces can help treat:
- Crooked or twisted teeth.
- Teeth that overlap each other.
- Teeth that are crowded into a mouth that appears too small.
- Cases where the upper and lower jaw aren't the same size, causing an overbite or underbite.
