According to Dr. David Sarver, an orthodontist in Birmingham, Alabama, getting braces while youre young could actually prevent you from having to get botox or cosmetic surgery later in life.
He says a good set of modern-day braces help structure and fix teeth so they dont have to be removed in the future.
Says Dr. Sarver: Modern braces are sleek and compact so that they fit easily into your mouth and all your teeth can stay in place. The more teeth you have, the more bone structure and support you have for your mouth, jaw, and face. That means less lines and more graceful aging.
Dr. Sarver proves this to the kids by using computer age- simulation to show kids images of how good their faces will look after getting braces.
And while some kids fear going to the dentist, Dr. Sarver insists most kids actually want braces.
He says, I get kids all the time that are disappointed if they dont end up needing braces. Its really funny.
