Visiting an orthodontist

I was tempted to do two posts, but I won't.

This is one of the times when I really wish that I had a better camera for dentistry.
At Dr. Vicki Wang's office, I was given a quick review on cases for interceptive dentistry.

Essentially, there are a cases that should be caught before they get really bad:
1. Open bites
2. Cross bites
3. Skeletal malocclusions

It's important, because the bone gets harder once a youth turns into an adult.
One that happens, it requires expensive, painful surgery to get it fixed.
