Orthodontic treatment and quality of life

Orthodontic Research

This is a collection of orthodontic research that we find interesting.

Does orthodontic treatment impact your quality of life?  YES!!

Well common sense might tell you that a more attractive smile will likely help you in similar ways that other things that make you attractive do.  Self-esteem and self-confidence, for better or worse, are closely tied to our perception of our appearance.  There are, however, people that study these quality of life type questions and they have found that indeed orthodontic treatment does have a minor positive impact on quality of life.   Gilchrist EBD 2015
