Having a nice smile is a crucial part of making a good first impression, that's the thing most people will usually notice first. Studies show that people will often describe someone in a more positive manner and will consider them to have more desirable qualities if they have straight teeth.
Fixing this issue in a lot of countries is quite simple, but not in the United States. You can barely cover most dental-related costs with Medicaid, which is the federal-state health insurance program in the U.S.
Twitter user Jon Torsch wanted to help people understand this issue better so he decided to share a thread explaining how the lack of access to dental care is affecting millions of lives as well as his own.
