Invisalign vs. Braces

The idea of wearing metal braces is not very appealing to anyone, regardless of age.  Invisalign is the new buzzword in braces and orthodontic technology.  Both teens and adults have shown a great deal of interest in Invisalign braces because they are known as invisible aligners. These Invisalign braces are available through officially designated Invisalign orthodontists like Dr. Patricia Panucci of Beach Braces.

The mere idea that you could wear clear, invisible braces will peak the interest of almost everyone. If you are wondering how teeth alignment occurs with these invisible aligners, then you will want to read this article.

  • How effective are Invisalign braces compared to normal braces?
  • Do they take longer to achieve teeth alignment?
  • What are the side effects or other issues that are related to Invisalign braces?

How Effective Are Invisalign Braces Compared to Normal Braces?

This is the most important question one might ask and you will be surprised with the answer. The myth is that Invisalign is not nearly as effective as normal braces. However, that is not true at all. In fact, almost always Invisalign will achieve equally ideal results as traditional metal braces.

Invisalign braces align the teeth by gently nudging them into the preferred position, based on a series of predetermined intervals designed by your orthodontist using computer technology, 3D modeling, and virtual reality. With traditional braces, the adjustments are obtained mainly by pulling the teeth with the wires and brackets placed by the orthodontist.

Do They Take Longer to Achieve Teeth Alignment?

In the majority of cases, your custom-made clear aligners can achieve the same result as traditional braces in a similar amount of time (6-36 months).  For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your Invisalign aligners 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment.

What Are The Side Effects or Other Issues That Are Related to Invisalign Braces?

Invisible or clear braces slide over your teeth, much like a thin shield of clear plastic that is nearly undetectable. Because of the way these braces fit there isn’t a risk of discoloration or irritation. In addition, they can be easily removed easily for proper oral hygiene.

You can easily see why Invisalign braces are taking the world by storm.  They are the clear alternative to braces!

Mom and Dad Can Have Perfect Teeth Too

Beach Braces Office

If you have been considering adult orthodontic braces so that you can have the straight teeth you always wanted, then read on. There are plenty of options available for adults to have braces, depending on your lifestyle, person preferences, and individual requirements. You will need to choose the style of braces that is best for you. But what are adult orthodontic braces, and how do you find the best option for you?

Conventional Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type of braces. This brace type is made from the highest grade of steel and they are affixed to the outside of your teeth. A few benefits to this type of braces are: durability, lack of discoloration, and speed of treatment.  Modern day metal braces are much smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive than those of even a decade ago.

Clear Ceramic Braces

The clear ceramic braces are attached to your teeth in the same manner as metal braces. However, because they tooth colored, they are less noticeable than the metal versions.

Lingual Bracesadult braces

Lingual braces are attached behind your teeth (the lingual side of the teeth). Lingual braces are completely hidden behind the teeth. Lingual braces have an adjustment period just like any other type of braces.

Invisible Braces (Clear Aligners)

Invisible braces are popular with adults and teens. Invisalign is comprised of a set of clear orthodontic trays that are called aligners. These aligners are customized to your mouth to accomplish the alignment that needs to take place for smile improvement. They are much less visible than braces. Teeth cleaning is easier because the aligners can be removed. However, this type of brace can only be used with simple teeth corrections. They are not designed to handle more complex cases but it’s not unknown to get a six month smile with Invisalign.

Which is the Best kind?

It really comes down to persona choice. There are pros and cons to each type of braces, and choosing is very personal. Consider your priorities, budget, whether you wish to conceal your braces, and of course you should always take your orthodontists’s recommendations into consideration. One thing is for certain – you are never too old to have braces and have your teeth corrected. Talk to your orthodontist to get a better understanding of what your personal situation would entail.

Invisalign Teen – What Parents Should Know

Braces – parents often meet resistance when their teens are told they require braces. Finally, there’s a solution that will make everyone happy. Invisalign – the invisible braces for teens. No longer does your teen have to cope with name-calling thanks to big ugly metal braces. No one will ever know they are even wearing braces.

Modern orthodontic offices are making it much simpler for teens to have their crooked teeth treated in a manner that’s almost as easy as going shopping with their friends. The generation of today wants more than just a solution for crooked teeth. They want a full makeover that is going to have them not only looking totally different and they want to make sure they are following current fashion trends.

 [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bi66v4gu_w]

The teenager of today who finds themselves facing dental issues can now turn to Invisalign braces for innovative treatments that will have them with beautiful teeth in no time.

Today’s teens are given a number of excellent treatment choices for wearing braces. These include invisible teeth aligners, tooth coloring, and more. Today’s teens no longer have to wear those bothersome traditional metal braces that left them self-conscious and impinging on their personality around their peers.

Here are just a few of the benefits Invisalign Teen braces have to offer teenagers and their parents.

invisalign teen preferred provider - manhattan beach Ca1.     No longer is there a need for those continuous visits to the orthodontist. There will be a visit at the six-week mark to talk about the progress of the teeth alignment and acquiring the next aligner set level. These spaced out visits are convenient for teens and parents alike.

2.     The Invisalign braces offer teens both durability and convenience. No worries when it comes to running, swimming, playing, or other physical activities. Now activities that couldn’t be done with metal braces are no longer a problem. These braces are also easy to clean along with the teenager’s original teeth.

3.     Teens are easily accepted with their Invisalign Teen because they do not affect their appearance, which is very important to teens. In fact, because Invisalign braces are clear they are invisible and many times their friends have no idea that they are even wearing braces.

4.     Teens like Invisalign braces because they are aesthetically pleasing. This way they get the perfect teeth they want but without the embarrassment of those ugly metal braces.

5.     Teens heading off to college love the Invisalign braces because they can easily remove them anytime they wish to and then can be worn again without an orthodontist visit. These clear braces are completely invisible and so they don’t clash with what your teen is wearing or their personality.

6.     The teenager can wear the set of Invisalign braces for a few weeks, and then when it is time they can graduate to the next set level. This results in movements that are gradual and in small increment towards the direction the teeth are being trained to move. The teeth aligners move easily for cleaning, which is certainly a benefit over the metal braces where it is difficult to clean the original teeth.

Happy Fourth of July

The 4th of July

Every year as the Fourth of July approaches, people from all over the United States eagerly anticipate a long holiday watching magnificent fireworks and extravagant parades, while eating great food with family and friends. But these things, regardless of how fun and enjoyable they may be, are not really the real reason that we even celebrate the fourth of July in the first place. It all began with the signing of the Declaration of Independence back in 1776.

4th of July - Manhattan BeachOn July 4, 1776, America finally became an independent country, free from the rule of the British that had been in control for the last several years. However, this change did not happen overnight. It took a several months of negotiations with England and there were certainly times when it all seemed to be futile. Finally, their efforts paid off when the Continental Congress finally approved the formal declaration.

Prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, King George III of Britain was the sovereign ruler over America and he had British soldiers supervising over the land. Unfair laws were enacted that required Americans to pay taxes to the British, which gradually siphoned the land’s wealth over to the British.

Finally, the colonists from the 13 original colonies decided it was time for a change. They were not going to bow down to the laws of foreign governments anymore and instead they were going to build their own government. Thus, they created the Declaration of Independence.

This document states that the United States of America should have a government that consists of its own people, and that would work for the benefits of its own people as well. It also states that if this basic provision is violated, the citizens of the country have the right to stage a revolution.

In a nutshell, the Declaration of Independence spells freedom for the people of America, then and all the way to the present. The Fourth of July thus marks a very significant day in the lives of all Americans because if it did not happen, we would not be enjoying the freedom that we have today, and that most people actually take for granted.

Just to put things into a clearer perspective, following are some of the things that we would not be enjoying today if our forefathers were not wise enough and courageous enough to make a bold move for the country’s independence many years ago:

Forth of July–        The freedom of speech.

–        The freedom to have our own beliefs and principles.

–        The freedom to choose our own lifestyle.

The committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence was led by Thomas Jefferson and included Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Philip Livingston. Shortly after the signing of this historic document, the Congressional Committee commissioned Betty Ross to sew the American Flag. The first version of the flag, consisting of 13 red and white alternating stripes and 13 white stars in a blue background, became official as the national flag on June 14, 1777.

The very first celebration of American independence was held on the 8th of July 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was read to the public by Colonel John Nixon. Every year thereafter, the celebration is held every Fourth of July.

Post Your New Smile on Facebook

Post Your New Smile on Facebook

Have you ever noticed how people have their own trademark smiles? If you haven’t noticed it before, just take a look at the profile pictures that you have on your Facebook. If you are like most people, you will see that most of your pictures, no matter what the pose or occasion, will have that same smile that you use.

New Smiles on FacebookFor some people, this trademark smile is a big wide grin that shows off their perfect teeth. But for others who have something that they prefer to hide, like crooked or stained teeth or some other dental imperfection, their pictures will usually show restrained smiles or closed-mouth smiles.

If you are one of these people who are too embarrassed about their dental imperfections to show off their full smile, you might find some consolation in the fact that you are not alone. As a matter of fact, it is only a rare breed of people who have naturally perfect teeth and gorgeous smiles. Most people, especially those celebrities that you see perennially flashing their pearly whites on the red carpet and on TV, actually have to work a lot on their teeth in order to achieve that camera-perfect smile.

Justin Bieber Wears Braces!

Here's a short video with Justin Bieber showing his Invisalign

Thanks to several technological advancements that have been made in the field of orthodontics in the last couple of decades, it is now possible for everyone to have a perfect smile regardless of how awful they think their teeth may look in the beginning. These days, teeth that are chipped, crooked, discolored or whatnot can easily be fixed.

Smile with Confidence

Depending on the level of damage or imperfections in your teeth, the corrections or treatments may cost anywhere from a few dollars to a few thousand dollars. The best way to find out which procedure would give you that perfect smile is to consult with your dentist. They can refer you to an orthodontist who specializes in whatever it is that you need. For mild treatments, you would only need to undergo a few months treatment, after which you can already have the smile that you had always wanted. So it’s possible in just a couple of hours to post your new smile on Facebook and just wait for the positive comments to start pouring in.

New Smiles on FacebookOf course, there are also some more intensive treatments that require several sessions in order to complete. There are also long-term treatments like wearing braces that can take up to a couple of years before you can see the results. In any case, there are no dental imperfections these days that cannot be corrected or improved.

Healthy Teeth and Healthy Smiles

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money just to have a beautiful smile, you can also do a lot of other ordinary things like brushing your teeth three times a day, flossing regularly, or using a whitening strip. If you are a smoker, you can also consider quitting because smoking causes your teeth to become yellow and weakens your gums at the same time.

No matter how you choose to do it, people will be sure to notice your whiter teeth and brighter, more beautiful smile.
