Your child needs an expander. Most people need permanent tooth extractions. You're too old for orthodontics. You'll be in treatment for about two years. Orthodontics is painful. Are these statements accurate? Not even close.

The Truth About Orthodontics: A Consumer's Guide to a Beautiful Smile gives you the information you need to make the best decisions for your orthodontic care. Written by a globally recognized doctor who is both an orthodontist and a physician, this fact-filled and entertaining book walks you through the basics, explaining old treatments versus new developments, and debunking the lingering lies that tend to feed people's fear of orthodontics, preventing them from enjoying the benefits a beautiful smile can provide.

Discover how the current understanding of tooth movement has transformed smile design into a process that can be shorter and more comfortable. Now, you can be prepared with the knowledge you need to find the treatment that will most benefit your smile. Engaging, humorous, and easy to read, this book about orthodontics will actually give you something to smile about.
