Wisdom Teeth vindicated

A study started in 1949 in Sweden  following dentists over a 40 year period has shown that the size of our jaws decreases with age. A reduction of several millimetres in length and width, particularly in the lower jaw was found. So over the  40 years there was less and less room for teeth in the jaws.

Wisdom teeth have finally been eliminated from the ‘criminal investigation’ into the cause of crowding because it also happens in people with no wisdom teeth.

Thats why Nicholas Cage ended up having a lower fixed brace in his late 40s. The tough actor has a shrinking lower jaw!

That is why Lakeside Orthodontics recommends that retainers be worn for LIFE following orthodontic treatment – regardless of age.
