Burch Orthodontics: 3 Facts about Your Tooth

At Burch Orthodontics, our mission is to create lasting relationships with our patients, honoring the trust they have placed with us while creating incredible smiles! Your smile is our number one priority. Our teeth say a lot about our health and a healthy oral hygiene routine will keep your smile shining bright all year round in Tallahassee. Here are 3 facts you may not know about your teeth.

1. Baby Teeth: Baby teeth are more important than we realize. Baby teeth hold space for the permanent teeth that follow – it’s important to hang onto them until they’re ready to come out on their own.

2. The part of the tooth you see, the crown is only about a quarter to a third of the entire tooth. The rest of the tooth is under the gums.

3. A cavity is one of the few things the body cannot heal. It just gets larger with time, unless a dentist removes the decay and places a filling.

Burch Orthodontics is now offering any members of our community to join the Burch Orthodontics Family Tree Observation Program. Join and receive complimentary pre-orthodontic exams until your child is ready for braces.
