It goes without saying that the Kardashian-Jenner family don't lead a normal life. They have incredible glam squads, ridiculous holidays, and shed loads of money. But one thing that *everybody* has to do, no matter how rich and famous, is go to the dentist.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter North West is no exception, and recently took to social media to reveal she now has braces on her teeth. Many fans couldn't believe how grown up the eight-year-old was, with one writing, "Adorable" and another adding, "I'm officially old."
Others were more concerned over whether eight was too young for braces, tweeting, "Why does North West have braces at age 8?" and "Does she even have adult teeth yet????? [sic]"
Someone else simply said, "North West getting braces at 8 years old is the most Kardashian thing ever."

According to the NHS website, "the ideal age to have braces is usually around 12 or 13, while a child's mouth and jaws are still growing." The Oral-B website adds, "An ideal time for placement of braces is between 10 and 14 years of age, while the head and mouth are still growing and teeth are more conducive to straightening."
But hey, maybe there's a specific reason North needs them a bit earlier.
