Braces affect bone structure, health and beauty. I discovered this the hard way. My daughter was 7 when her dentist said that she was missing 3 adult permanent teeth. Two were on the bottom jaw, one on the left side and one on the right. One was missing on the top jaw on the right side.
As it turns out, she inherited her missing teeth from me. I didn’t have wisdom teeth – and in high school thought I’d hit the jackpot (especially when watching my classmates in horrible pain from having their wisdom teeth extracted).
