Q Are people bullied because of their smile?
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.
