Orthodontics is a special type of treatment, with a specific goal...the enhancement of both the appearance and function of the mouth and, therefore, the face as a whole.
Think of all of the ways that you use your mouth; in eating, in speaking, in the expression of love and affection, and in displaying the universal sign of friendliness and optimism-your smile.
A smile matters. People who are inclined to smile are generally healthier, happier, more successful and get sick less than those who are not so inclined. Interesting. And true!
