Braces are not a fad!
Did you know that orthodontics has been around for centuries? Aristotle and Hippocrates attempted to think of ways to straighten teeth around 400-300 B.C. and archaeologists have discovered mummies with metal bands around their teeth. However, Pierre Frauchard, a French dentist, is credited with the idea for modern-day orthodontic treatment way back in 1728. Of course, orthodontia has come a long way since then! Orthodontists can now use clear brackets, colored ties, clear trays, and can even scan teeth instead of those goopy impressions.
