Dental problems are more common than we think. Many people don’t visit their dentists regularly, whereas many don’t visit a dental clinic at all! The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that 1 in 4 Americans has untreated cavities.
In order to avoid developing dental problems at a later stage, dentists recommend braces to people with misaligned, crooked or crowded teeth. This is done to amend overbites, underbites, crossbites, and generally align teeth.
