Do-It-Yourself Orthodontic Treatment: The AAO Position

Orthodontics – Don’t Do-It-Yourself Braces! Here’s Why by AAO ft. Dr. Patti Panucci

For 18 months, the AAO has aggressively and proactively been warning consumers to be wary of various “do-it-yourself orthodontics” procedures when it comes to orthodontic care.  These procedures have been popularized on social media, with many showing young adults attempting to move their teeth with rubber bands, paperclips, and inappropriate use of orthodontic appliances without the personal evaluation and care of an orthodontic specialist.

The AAO believes that orthodontic care should always be performed under the direct supervision of an orthodontist. Regular orthodontic check-ups throughout treatment best serve the patient and allow the treating orthodontist to monitor not only tooth movement, but also the patient’s overall oral health, including hygiene issues that may impact treatment decisions.

Dr. Panucci endorses the AAO’s position 100% and was part of the Public Service Announcement that AAO put together about the dangers of do-it-yourself orthodontics, see video above.

Brace Yourself

If you want to find out more about the bad idea of do-it-yourself braces and dental work visit these pages on Inside Edition, the Washington Post, or Today Online Health and Wellness.

Celebrate Orthodontic Health Month With Gourmet Recipes

white teeth, invisalignOne of the least favorite aspects of wearing orthodontic devices for both teens and adults is having to avoid some of your favorite dishes while wearing braces. Worry no more. In conjunction with the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) for the Orthodontic Health Month, celebrity chef John Besh is promoting orthodontic-friendly recipes from his collection during the month of October.

Although Dr. Patricia J. Panucci of Beach Braces recognizes that it is difficult to do without some of your favorite foods during the time that you have orthodontic appliances in your mouth, she and the members of her practice also recognized that you want to continue eating tasty food. Dr. Panucci suggests that you try some of Chef John Besh’s featured recipes. Just because you are wearing orthodontic appliances does not mean you have to eat bland food. Take a look at some of these easy-to-prepare and tasty dishes, and you will be surprised at the variety of inviting foods that you can continue to eat.

Because Chef John Besh has four boys of his own, he understands the family’s needs to prepare something that everyone can enjoy for dinner. Here at Beach Braces, we want you to eat healthy food too.

In addition to Besh’s recipes, AAO is also promoting other orthodontic friendly treats on its pressroom page as part of Orthodontic Health Month. Try one of the many recipes, such as Spider Bites, Mounts of Brains Cookies Black Cherry Bats and more to satisfy your sweet tooth, or even Goblin’s Gooey Apples that take the place of taffy apples.

Dr. Panucci makes the orthodontic experience easy and fun while caring for her patients and providing you great customer service. Please contact us if you have any questions or to schedule your one-time complimentary exam at Beach Braces, your Manhattan Beach orthodontist.

Super Sea Hawk Game #1:

Super Sea Hawk Game #1: Dr. Patrica J. Panucci

It’s time for Sea Hawk Football! Last night the Sea Hawk football program wrapped up it’s off season training with a scrimmage for all three levels vs Loyola High School. Our boys played hard, with passion and pride! We are ready to head into our pre-season schedule next Friday vs. North Torrance. Coaches and players have been working hard all summer; installing offensive, defensive and special team’s packages, as well as strength, speed and agility training. Over 40 players made the Summer “Brotherhood Club”!

Furthermore, our parent committees, led by new team mom Cherish Muzik, have been busy getting organized and planning for an awesome year. Our second annual Pancake Breakfast was a great success, and our boys enjoyed the first team movie night “When the Game Stands Tall”. The Media Guide is coming together, as well as our stadium and field banners.

Be sure to get all your Sea Hawk Football info on our website and Facebook Pages

All future newsletters will announce the previous games’: Offensive Player of the Game, Defensive Player of the Game, Special Teams Player of the Game, and Scout/Practice “Eagar Beaver” Player of the Week.

Super Sea Hawk Game #1:

Next week:

Vs. North Torrance High School

Game time: Friday, August 39th, @ 7:00pm

Location: North Torrance HS

Special Note: Every player in the RU Football program will be wearing an “AW” sticker on their helmets to show our love and support to the Whitson family. Brothers for life.

Super Sea Hawk Game #1: Dr. Patrica J. Panucci

Dr. Panucci is a local orthodontist who generously donated high end, individually form fit, mouth pieces to all the boys in our program. She went above and beyond making sure our boys were as safe as possible; feeding them lunch and fitting each player. www.beachbraces.org


The “Super Sea Hawk” is an awesome tradition the Sea Hawk Football family is very proud of. Each game week our players will get together with the coaches and choose a person (teacher, administrator, staff, parent or anyone in the community) that has helped support them in some way; be it academically, athletically, emotionally, etc.

The Super Sea Hawk is an enjoyable and special experience for all those involved. During the week, the Super Sea Hawk is invited to any practice/meeting/ “behind the scenes look” they would like to attend. They will be the guest of honor at our team dinner Thursday night, and then invited down to our sideline during the game. We’ll also give them a long sleeve red shirt with “Super Sea Hawk” on it so they can be recognized at the games.

This is one way we would like to recognize a few of the many people that support and encourage our student-athlete football players.

Thank you!

Matt Ballard – Head Football Coach

Beach Braces Application, More Convenient To Go!

Beach Braces App

Tracking your progress through orthodontic treatment has traditionally required an orthodontist visit or phbeach braces appone call. Today however with modern technology we are able to track orthodontic progress using something as simple as an app.

The Beach Braces application is by far one of the best ways that you can have a direct line to your orthodontist. The app has a number of excellent features that you can use to track your progress as well as very quickly get into contact with your orthodontist if there is ever any kind of problem with your treatment.

The application is available for android devices as well as Apple devices and looks roughly the same on either. You can find the app in both the Google play store as well as Apple iTunes and there are links put up around the bottom of this page so that you can download the app for your devices.

What does the app do?

On the application patients have access to a number of features including the ability to book appointments and contact the desk beach braces applicationat Beach Braces directly. This is far more intuitive than your average Yellow Pages listing as you can very quickly schedule appointments and receive the answers that you need all in the app.  You can submit requests for appointments within the app by e-mail. From here, your appointments can be scheduled and you have a better shot at getting the best possible appointment slot for your individual schedule. On the app you can see your schedule as well as make comments or e-mails with any questions that you may have leading up to your appointment.

One touch calling, text messages and e-mail communication are also available in the app allowing patients to very quickly get into contact with the orthodontist directly. Having all of these features at your fingertips makes it easy to get answers to your questions even when the office may be closed, or when you are unable to get an appointment.

If you’re a new customer the application also comes with special contact information so that you can find the office and book your first appointment. With maps built directly into the app you can easily get into the office and make your first appointment on time.

Perhaps one of the most interesting features of the beach braces app is its social media integration. On the app you can post your own photos to Facebook and other social media websites so that you and other patients can track your progress every step of the way.
