Does having braces at the age of 13 years old, affects my jaw growth?
I really hope i will find the answer and solution to my problem. So, from the title you could already guess that i got braces at the age of 13 years old because of my buck teeth. I wore braces for 5 years straight since October 2013 until February 2018. When i was about to get my braces taken off, the doctor said something about my jaw and that made me end up searching about it on the internet. and until now i still havent got the answer. Does braces really affect my jaw growth?
did the doctor specifically said that braces affect jaw growth?
