Braces
If your teeth aren’t
straight, you can go to an
orthodontist (a special kind
of dentist) to get braces.
Braces go on or around
your teeth to move them
and make them straight.
Some braces are metal,
some are plastic, and some
are ceramic (strong stuff,
sort of like what some
dishes are made of). Braces
may sound weird and scary,
but don’t worry, because
they’ll only be on your teeth
for a year or 2. And when
you’re fnished wearing
them, you’ll have a movie-
star smile!

Depression
It’s normal to feel sad sometimes, but
if you feel that way for a long time,
and you never feel happy, it’s called
depression. Sometimes, it’s hard to
fgure out what’s causing a person’s
depression. One thing’s for sure,
though: if you feel depressed or if you
think someone else is depressed, talk
to a trusted grown-up about it.
Virus
Viruses are a type of germ.
They’re very tiny, and when
they get inside your body, they
can make you sick. Viruses
cause colds, chicken pox,
measles, fu, and many other
diseases. Unfortunately,
antibiotics don’t work on
viruses like they do on bacteria.
Wash your hands often to help
prevent the spread of viruses,
especially before you eat and
after you use the bathroom.
