Orthodontic Fact #10

Orthodontic Fact #10 The first ever certified orthodontist in the United States is Dr. Charles Tweed from the late 18th century

You may not have known that the field of orthodontics goes back to the 18th century, but the truth is that it does. This orthodontic fact shows just how long people have had some form of orthodontia as a solution for their problems with misaligned teeth.  Dr. Charles Tweed was the first official orthodontist.

Today, more than ever, there is a huge emphasis on physical appearance throughout the mainstream media. As such, anyone who feels that they fall short in some way can be made to feel extremely self conscious. If an individual is self conscious about not having the alignment of teeth that form a perfect smile, he or she could end up hiding that smile on a regular basis, which is not a healthy way to live.

Additionally, there is an easy solution for people who do not like the appearance of their teeth. An orthodontist can be of great help in a situation such as this one. The two main options used by most people to align teeth are Invisalign and traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces are typically used for more severe cases of misalignment, where the misalignment of teeth could actually have an adverse effect on the rest of the face and cause a bad bite. Invisalign is very effective, but it is for less severe cases, generally speaking.
