Rumble A 2013 study commissioned by the American Association of Orthodontists found that more than a third of Americans are unhappy with their smile. But the quest for straighter teeth isn’t just a modern one, as the history of humans trying to correct malpositioned teeth goes back to antiquity. The surprisingly long history of orthodontics is history that deserves to be remembered.
