Should I see my orthodontist straight away if my braces are preventing me from biting normally?

There can be situations where your orthodontist will purposely prevent your teeth from biting together. This may be done with the help of bite turbos or bite buttons. This is usually done at the beginning of treatment, usually if there is a deep overbite that would break brackets off the teeth or if there is significant tooth wear of the front teeth. As treatment progresses, your bite will be monitored and the final finishing stages of treatment are for detailing the bite. The bite turbos will be removed at this stage.

Is bad breath in children caused by dietary habits?

Often, we get kids with allergic rhinitis or asthma. The chances of them getting bad breath are higher because their saliva dries out. Most of the time if their hygiene is good, they should not get bad breath.
