When we are children we have milk teeth, as time passes, commonly at the age of 6, those teeth start to fall and permanent teeth take their place. Frequently these permanent teeth grow crooked. The result of this is not a very desired aesthetic image, which can cause low self-esteem and insecurity when a person is smiling or talking. In children and teenagers, because of the premature phase they are in, having crooked teeth can affect their personality.
Many people do not pay adequate attention to this problem and let it go, because they think it does not affect them in any way, but they are wrong, because not only their image is being affected, it’s not just an aesthetic problem.
