While a straighter smile usually leads to improved confidence and better oral health, getting there can be a real struggle if it means dealing with the hassles of bracket and wire braces.

In recent years, fluoridated water has come under attack for being unsafe, but 70 years of research by the American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says otherwise.
