Ok, my daughter (age 10) has perfect teeth. The dentist claims her wisdom teeth will HAVE to come out, and she’ll need braces. Sounds like a racket to me. My dentist watched my wisdom teeth around age 20, and after careful examination, he could tell they’d be fine. (Note: I had other teeth extracted for braces, but I hear the “philosophy” has changed.) i.e., no quick decision at age 10 for me! (Could this be the latest fad in the tooth fairy profession?)
While I cannot ask for medical advice, I just want links to objective articles defending my position that braces are over-diagnosed, perhaps earlier and earlier. At $5000 for starters, I am not convinced it is not a racket.
