Orthodontics can inspire fear in some hearts. In fact just the world ‘orthodontics’ can cause some of us to break out in a sweat. Dentists don’t have the best image. In fact, dentists have been portrayed in a demonic way in some mainstream films, such as Marathon Man. Orthodontics tends to be a more involved kind of dentistry as it fixes problems such as misaligned teeth or overbites. But being scared of the dentist or orthodontics is something that can be overcome. Modern orthodontics mean the right pain relief, sensitive orthodontic dentists and a caring environment can ease your anxiety over orthodontics.
