Orthodontics: Braces ... for me?

Abstract:

It explains that a dentist can evaluate a person's occlusion, or bite, and may recommend braces if their bite is not properly aligned, which is called malocclusion. It clarifies that children should be evaluated early in their development. The document describes the process by which braces correct a person's orthodontic problems.
