Q
Are people bullied because of their smile?

A

Yes.

Unfortunately the American Academy of Orthodontist recently completed a study that showed a persons' smile is a primary cause of bullying.  The most common causes of bullying with regards to a smile are: Gaps between teeth, missing teeth, shape/color of teeth and "Buck Teeth".  We have an article, Bullying: Nothing To Smile About, that discusses this very topic.  We also have blogs that discuss ways to fix these four problems.
