Misplaced teeth or an “improper bite” can not only detract from people’s smiles; but may also lead to tooth decay, gum disease and eventual early tooth loss. For these, among other reasons everyone should have an orthodontic check-up at least once, the ideal age for which would be 7 years, though age is not a bar for treatment with braces.
