ArchWired.com, “the” website for adults in braces, has posted a fast/fun read through the history of braces – the technology and the people – in the article “A Brief History of Braces” (when Metal Mouth really described it…). Since I lived through the braces in both the 70s and the 2000s, I feel I can relate to the progress described. The combination of smart people and very cool developments in material science and digital design has really rocked orthodontics.
Archwired.com is a great resource for any adult in braces (of any type) or considering orthodontic treatment. It’s also helpful for the parents of children and teens in braces. Check out the forum topics to learn more and post your own questions.
