October is National Orthodontic Health Month, which is meant to bring awareness to the importance of having straight teeth and proper bite alignment.

Problems with your bite can make chewing, eating, speaking, and smiling difficult. It can also put your dental health at risk when your upper and lower teeth are constantly scraping against each other.

Another issue is how crooked or crowded teeth make proper dental hygiene more challenging.

So aside from making sure your child grows up to have a great-looking smile that gives them confidence, you also want to ensure their orthodontic and oral health by aligning their teeth with braces or Invisalign.
