We the Dentists are the “Makers & Keepers” of this beautiful smile. One of the major reasons for the unpleasant smiles in children is the mal-alignment of the anterior teeth due to various reasons like delayed loss of deciduous teeth, various habits like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, mouth breathing etc. basically due to altered growth and development. This unpleasant smile and the altered growth pattern can also affect the child psychologically making him/her shy, withdrawn, lonely and depressed, may affect the concentration at school. So then is it right on our part to allow this havoc to take place, and neglect the CHILD, our future generation?
