Facial appearance plays a cardinal role in the development of self-confidence in an individual. Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, feel, and be conscious. Facial appearance plays a cardinal role in the development of self-confidence in an individual. Orthodontic treatment ensures the proper function of teeth and creates healthy smiles as misaligned teeth are harder to clean and can cause abnormal wear of enamel. There has been a manifold increase in the number of orthodontic patients and treatments available over the last few decades starting from removable appliances to metal braces to more recent self-ligation ceramic braces(Speedo-orthodontics). So come, let’s spread this chain of awareness among our people as we are ONE PROFESSION, ONE SOCIETY, ONE US and we Orthodontists are there for the public.
It is a common practice for each one of us, nowadays, to spend a considerable amount of time on social media. While doing so, it is quite possible you might have come across a lot of advertisements on your social media feed. Some of these may be from companies promising that they can deliver straighter teeth with removable trays, without you ever needing to see a trained orthodontist, at fraction of the cost that you would pay to an orthodontist. While it is natural to get tempted by these offers, it is important to understand the potential risks and disadvantages. These appliances have been shown to cause permanent damages to teeth and tissues, hence should be avoided. So the take-home message is “ALWAYS TAKE AN OPINION OF AN ORTHODONTIST”.
