Smile – Best Facts and Myths 2016

smile

Smile. Middle school is a sensitive time in a child’s life. They become independent while beginning to struggle with the issues of popularity, bullying, and their own bodies changing. By 13 years old, most kids have lost all of their baby teeth. While this is not a sensitive topic for them, how their adult teeth grow in may be.

Consequences of No Smiles

Kids who are embarrassed by their teeth do not smile often. While their circle of friends may not notice, other children and teachers at school may think that they are shy, conceited or maybe that they aren’t paying attention. Not smiling has physical effects as well. When people smile, their bodies release endorphins which help them feel happy and less stressed.

Help Your Child Smile

Parents talk to their children about what kinds of clothes and shoes they want to wear to help them feel more confident. It’s also especially important to talk to kids about how they feel about their teeth. Orthodontia is, of course, not just a cosmetic issue. But the cosmetic can definitely out-weigh the functional aspects of getting teeth corrected in a middle schooler’s mind.

Parents should ask their child how they feel about getting orthodontic treatment which could include braces, a retainer, etc. They may have avoided talking about it because they are apprehensive about wearing braces or because they thought seeing an orthodontist was too expensive.

No matter whether they express positive or negative feelings about their teeth, scheduling an initial orthodontic evaluation with an orthodontist is best for the child. Type and length of treatment, as well as cost and financing options, can be discussed at this first visit. It may help them to feel more at ease and be reassured that they can have a beautiful smile.

If you are interested in an orthodontist visit for your child or yourself, please consider contacting King Orthodontics, for the smile of your life.

3 Ways to a Better, Brighter Smile

One Smile Can’t Change the World, but Your Smile Changes Mine

Few things enhance a person’s face more than a great smile. One way to achieve a great smile is with teeth that are shiny and straight. Not everyone has naturally perfect teeth, but an orthodontist can help almost anyone reach that goal. Giving its patients straight teeth is the goal of King Orthodontics.

 

The Problem of Misaligned Teeth

In addition to affecting one’s appearance, teeth that are crooked or improperly spaced can hamper the chewing process. Misaligned teeth can also be difficult to clean and are more susceptible to cavities and disease. An orthodontist is a dental specialist who is specifically concerned with straightening teeth. This can be accomplished with braces, devices that when worn will straighten misaligned teeth and close unsightly gaps between them. The following types of braces are available from King Orthodontics:

  • Traditional metal
  • Clear
  • Self-ligating (without ties)

 

The Magic of Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners offer promise to many patients by the way they straighten teeth in a comfortable and inconspicuous manner. Using the latest technology, these devices “predict” the way in which a person’s teeth need to be straightened and carry out the task. They are worn in stages, which each set being replaced about every two weeks. By exerting a small amount of pressure, the aligners will slowly move the teeth into the desired position. These devices are also unique in the way they can be removed for cleaning or when eating. Additionally, they are virtually invisible to the outside.

 

Considering King Orthodontics

Only an orthodontist can determine the needs of each patient. Whether you are considering Invisalign aligners or conventional braces, you should consider turning to the services of Drs. Sam and Jack King. Its team of dental specialists is committed to giving patients the smile of their lives. Call for an appointment at 937-433-0830.
