An orthodontist has finally revealed the definitive answer to the age old question which we receive most every day: When is the right time to get orthodontics?
Usually kids are just told to wear braces because they need them and that is that. You are told you need them and you wear them, and since usually this happens in early adolescence, it feels like no one cares what you feel during it.I think this must have been the main motivation behind drawing SMILE-A Dental Journey, a great web comic that is nostalgic, sweet, and geared towards young adults.
There are many new innovations in orthodontics, and they happen at a relatively fast pace. Even dutiful cleaners only see their dentist once every six months, some even more rarely unless something is terribly wrong. That is why sometimes patients will hear about innovations that can make their life easier well after these innovations have become standard practice.
South Korea has a history of being way more technologically advanced then the West in general, and is several years our senior in terms of medical and technological developments. The patenting laws are not as strict, and as such, inventors and engineers flourish. As a result of this, many new and interesting things are coming out of South Korea, the way technological advances used to flow out of (and still do to some extent) Japan.
