Beyond Braces

A Consumer's Guide To Orthodontics

By: Kelly Giannetti and Thais Booms

Often people hear myths about orthodontics from their friends or family and accept them as facts. Maybe they’ve heard that adults can’t get braces, or that they’ll have to wear the same bulky, metal braces that were popular decades ago. Maybe they’re afraid that braces will cause them pain during treatment. However, like all medicine, orthodontics have come a long way.

Dr. Thais Booms and Dr. Kelly Giannetti wrote Beyond Braces: A Consumer’s Guide to Orthodontics to dispel the myths and rumors about orthodontics. In this book, you’ll learn how everything about how orthodontics work in today’s world, including:

  1. how your bite was formed and why it matters,
  2. what preventative treatment is available for children,
  3. how orthodontics help snoring and sleep apnea, and
  4. the different type of treatments available for adults.

If you’ve ever been on the fence about orthodontic treatment for you or your child, don’t hesitate to learn how your life can be changed―pain free!
