Invisalign for Teens

So your teen has been to the orthodontist and they have been told that they need to get braces. Are they totally upset and disappointed because they don’t want to put their lives on hold due to metal braces?

Now they don’t have to be. King Orthodontics, offers Invisalign for teenagers. Invisalign Teen is the clear alternative that allows your teenager to get the perfect smile without the use of traditional metal braces. Using a series of clear, plastic aligners, the teeth are gradually moved. Invisalign for teenagers uses the same dynamic technology that is found in the traditional adult aligners.

What does an aligner look like?

The aligners are virtually invisible and resemble that of a tooth whitening tray. They are custom-made for the purpose of moving and straightening teeth. They are not easily detected when they are worn. They are similar to a contact lens on an eye. It’s like your teen is the only one that needs to know they are wearing them.

Teens lead busy lives. Let them keep it that way.

Teens (and their mouths) are always on the go it seems. Normal life doesn’t have to change because of braces. Invisalign Teen aligners are comfortable to wear and are very durable. They fit in with the busy lifestyle of a teen. They don’t need to worry about traditional braces getting in the way of extracurricular activities such as sports or band. The aligners offer very little discomfort.

They can still eat their favourite foods!

Unlike the traditional metal braces, where the patient is restricted as to what they can and cannot eat, Invisalign for teenagers virtually eliminates that rule. Because the aligners are easily removed, teens can still eat and drink whatever they would like to.

Easy oral care.

Maintaining a healthy smile is easy with Invisalign. Since the aligners are removed, dental care is simple. Brushing and flossing are easy since there are no brackets and wires to get in the way.

Benefits and advantages of wearing aligners versus metal braces.

  • Comfortable and easy to wear.
  • Clear, undetectable.
  • Oral care is easily maintained.
  • Easily snaps onto teeth.
  • Worn for two weeks, then a new set of aligners are worn.
  • Indicator so your teen knows the duration of time to wear their aligners. Typically, they wear them usually about twenty to twenty-one hours in a day for two weeks.
  • Allows for erupting or growing teeth

Word of Wisdom No. 2: Chuck Your Toothbrush

Changing your toothbrush once in a while is part of your overall oral health routine. Using the same toothbrush for too long can cause you to bring old bacteria back to your mouth again. Your old toothbrush might not also be fit to clean your teeth thoroughly anymore since the bristles will probably wear in time. So when is the right time for you to replace your toothbrush? Experts advise to replace the head of your electric toothbrush (or buy a new one) once every two to three months. Although this timeline is calculated based on facts and other statistics, there are still factors which you need to consider than just following this timeline strictly.

Replacing your toothbrush every two to three months is good, but there are some exceptions to this rule. You need to examine your toothbrush and look at its bristles closely, in order to determine if they can still clean your teeth properly. If the bristles seem out of place and are already weak, then it’s time to change your toothbrush even if it hasn’t reached the two-month period yet. Delaying the replacement can compromise the cleanliness of your teeth leading to plaques. In return, plaques build up immediately and before you know it, you’ll be on your way to your dentist for tooth extraction.

Therefore, following the timeline and being vigilant and observant can help you save your extra time, money and effort in order to maintain a good oral health. Plus, you’ll be able to save your precious teeth too!

Smile Quote No. 28: A Smile is the Powerful Weapon you can Break Ice with it

A smile is the powerful weapon you can break ice with it. With the right dental work, you can feel comfortable with the smile you have and show it off to friends, family, and to people you meet in a professional setting. For the smile of your life, consider scheduling an appointment with an orthodontist in Centerville.

Why Smiles Boost Self-Esteem

Smiling is a natural reaction to emotions or experiences a person finds pleasing. However, when a person is self-conscious about their dental health, they may repress their smile, even when they want to smile happily. Smiling is beneficial to one’s health because the act of smiling releases endorphins in the brain. This causes a wave of positive emotions. So, even when a person feels emotionally stable, forcing a smile can often promote feeling happy. When that self-consciousness toward your smile comes in, you are repressing a positive chemical balance in your brain.

Smiling Is Socially Beneficial

This seems like a no-brainer, but it is often lost on many who wish not to smile out of fear their teeth will be scrutinized. As social animals, we react positively when we see someone smile. On interpersonal levels, seeing someone you care about smiling will make you feel good since you can feel that the person is happy. On a professional level, smiling is a social cue of confidence, a positive outlook toward one’s profession or duties, and shows employers you are willing to interact with co-workers and superiors.

Starting Early

When your child has some dental issues, it’s very important that you contact an orthodontist for kids. If the child does not have proper dental care applied to them, the child could miss out on beneficial social interactions that will help with their self-esteem and help them become more sociable individuals. If you are ready for the smile of your life, contact the professionals at King Orthodontics today about improving you or your child’s dental health today.

Smile Quote No. 27: If You Smile at Someone They May Smile Back

Smiling at someone means you’re opening up your heart to them. It means you’re welcoming them and that you are willing to be their friends. It can also mean acceptance especially during first encounters. Have you ever wondered why people smile back at you when you smile at them? It’s not that there’s a general guideline to smile back every time people smile at you but most people do.

This is because smiling is contagious. If you smile at someone, they smile back at you because they wanted to return the same courtesy you showed to them. It means you have touched their lives and that they are grateful you did. When someone is feeling down and depressed, smiling at them can help ease the pain away. It’s like helping someone cope with his or her problems by just smiling at them. It doesn’t cost you a lot but it does mean something big towards the person you smiled at.

Embrace the Challenges of a New Day with a Smile

Orthodontics

Smile Quote No. 26: Begin a New Day with a Simple Smile

How do you begin your day? Most people start their day with a prayer while others begin it with a cup of coffee. For busy individuals, their day usually starts by taking a bath and preparing everything they need for work or school. While others are busy at the beginning of their day, some people also have the luxury to relax, watch the views from their windows, or jog in the park at the start of their day. Provided with the wide array of activities you can do right after you wake up in the morning, only few people begin a new day with a simple smile.

Beginning your day with a smile is like beginning your day right. It means you are happy and thankful that you still get to wake up for the morning and experience life once again. You may have a lot of problems and struggles at the moment but smiling makes all your worries go away. You will feel light, your pain will be alleviated, and your heart will be lifted. Beginning the day with a smile not only benefits yourself but also those around you. People get to be reminded to appreciate life as it is and their pain will also slowly go away.

Overall, no matter what you do in your daily routine, always don’t forget to smile and be positive so you could finish your day without difficulty. If you got problems with smiling, let the experts know so they could help you fix your problems.

Smile Quote No. 25: “The Purpose of Our Lives Is To Be Happy” – Dalai Lama

Have you ever thought what your ultimate goal in life is? Is it to travel around the world or is to build your empire and wealth for your family? Is it to pursue your career and be famous and respected in your field or is it to raise your own family? Is it to buy your dream car and house or is it simply to provide the needs of your kids? No matter what answers you may have, there’s one thing in common; you want to be happy.

The good news is, it’s perfectly normal. Dalai Lama said that the purpose of our lives is to be happy. It is the ultimate goal of all people no matter where they think they can find their happiness. If you’re trying to pursue a path that is difficult, you might feel down and depressed. Despite all your hardships, never forget to stop for a while, breathe, and smile. After all, your goal in pursuing that path is to be happy. It defeats the purpose if you’re feeling sad and down on your way towards it.

Women’s Smile: A Lethal Weapon

OrthodonticsSmile Quote No. 24:“There Is No Weapon In the Feminine Armory to Which Men Are As Vulnerable as They Are to A Smile.”- Dorothy Dix

Dorothy Dix once said that “there is no weapon in the feminine armory to which men are as vulnerable as they are to a smile”. Although this might sound absurd, it is basically true. Most men can’t resist a girl’s smile and it might be the best path towards his heart. Although wearing a make-up can help you look beautiful and pretty, wearing a smile takes it to another level.

A smile can capture one’s heart giving warmth and comfort to it. Guys might see you beautiful outside but they can only see the real you when you smile with all your heart. Smiling doesn’t cost a thing unlike buying expensive clothing, accessories, and make-up. You don’t even need a retouch. You just need to put on that smile and everything else will fall in their places. Always remember, in order to get a man, always smile and use your natural charm.
