Celebrity’s Orthodontic Journey # 4: Zac Efron

Take one look at Zac Efron’s smile today and it is practically blinding. Those pearly whites are neatly aligned and draw you in every time. However, Zac didn’t always have a perfect smile. In his early teen years, when he was just starting out in Hollywood, he had spacing issues. The most noticeable thing about his teeth at that time was a gap between his front teeth. With orthodontic correction, the rest has been history. Zac Efron has been smiling for the camera ever since. If you have an issue with spacing in your mouth, whether there’s too much or not enough, an orthodontic specialist could be the answer for you.

Zac Went with Invisalign

Gone are the days when metal brackets and wires were the only orthodontic solution. For Zac Efron, invisible braces were the answer. Thanks to Invisalign clear aligners, no one in middle school knew that Zac was getting treatment for that noticeable space between his teeth. Within two years of treatment, he had a smile that lit up “High School Musical” and could offer Invisalign tips to anyone. Invisalign was the ideal solution during those self-conscious, early teen years. If you are thinking about Invisalign for yourself, your orthodontist will explain your options and help you to move forward toward a beautiful smile.

Baby Teeth vs. Permanent Teeth

Should I have a Baby Tooth Removed if a Permanent Tooth is Present?

When That Baby Tooth Keeps Hanging Around

If you have a baby tooth that refuses to fall out for your child, it can be a nuisance. This especially holds true when the permanent tooth comes in and that other tooth is still hanging in there. In addition to cosmetic reasons, you may have concerns about overcrowding in your child’s mouth if the tooth is left in place. Before you make any hasty decisions or jump to conclusions about braces, pay a visit to your dentist first to find some answers.

Baby Teeth Can Become a Problem

When your dentist evaluates your child’s situation, a thorough examination comes first. From that point, it will be important to determine why the permanent tooth is coming in and the primary tooth is still in place. This generally occurs as a result of a spacing or crowding issue. When both types of teeth are in place, your dentist will generally recommend removal of the baby tooth. However, this is not going to solve any orthodontic issues that have occurred. It will make it easier for your child to have good oral hygiene as it becomes easier to clean permanent teeth. It is important to keep your child’s gums and teeth healthy. Once the baby tooth has been removed, your dentist is likely to refer you to an orthodontist.

Dealing with Overcrowding or Improper Alignment of Your Child’s Teeth

When your child has primary teeth present at the same time as permanent teeth, there is likely to be an underlying, orthodontic issue. The only way to determine if this is the case you have to go beyond your dentist’s office. A referral to an orthodontist can help you to answer any questions and determine what will be the best course of action. Beach Braces may be the answer for you. The younger your child is when issues are identified, the easier it will be to handle any problems with his or her teeth. From tooth removal to the use of retainers or braces, there are many options that could bring your child’s teeth into proper alignment. The main goal is to bring out that beautiful smile and help your child to have healthy, strong teeth.

Make an Appointment Today

In order to find out more about the impact of baby teeth that won’t let go, contact Dr. Patricia J. Panucci today. She’ll be able to examine your child and use medical imagery to get a comprehensive picture of your child’s mouth. From that point, she will be able to discuss your concerns and advise you on what is next. The solution may be as simple as removing a tooth. You can also visit her webiste to explore your options. Find answers to your questions and the support of a caring, professional staff. Your child already has a wonderful smile. Sometimes it just needs a little extra help along the way from the experts.

Celebrity’s Orthodontic Journey # 2: Tom Cruise

Think you’re too old for braces? Ask Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise. The star of Top Gun, Jerry Maguire, and Edge of Tomorrow, who was 39 years old when he first ventured into the orthodontist’s office! After appearing on magazine covers for nearly two decades–with a crooked smile–he finally took the plunge when one of his own children needed to get braces, and decided he would join in as well! As every magazine photo and movie of him since 2002 testifies: the rest is history.

Instead of the image of wires and rubber bands many of us have when we think about braces, Tom opted for a more discrete ceramic type, the only visible part of which was a thin wire running across the front of his teeth. He wore them for about eighteen months, and was able to have the wire removed when he was doing a movie, then put back on after. In fact, many adults, like Tom, choose ceramic braces, but if those are too obtrusive, there are also clear aligners that are nearly invisible! Or maybe you’re interested in getting Wildsmile braces, metal braces emblazoned with charms and colors? We work with you to choose a style of braces that meets your specific health needs, while also fitting your personal or professional lifestyle.

Even if you’re not planning to walk down the red carpet anytime soon, straightening your teeth is a great way to improve your smile and boost your self-confidence. What are you waiting for? Come on in for a consultation with Dr. Patricia at Beach Braces today. She is a cutting-edge orthodontist, and one of the most qualified in Southern California. More importantly, she is dedicated to finding the right choice for you, so that you can love your braces before and after.

Sticky Candies: Extremely, Dangerously Sticky

Beach Braces, teeth stainingTeeth Staining Food # 7: Candy, Sweets and Chewing Gums:

Let’s face it: A life without candy, sweets and gum would be awfully dull. However, most people regret their tasty little indulgences once they find themselves in the dentist’s chair. While dentists’ first priority might be the health of your teeth, they’re still people, and they understand that no one wants to completely sacrifice sweets. Here are some tips on how you can include candy and sweets in your diet while preserving your healthy white smile.

Brush After Eating – Most people know that they are supposed to always brush after eating. However, many people interpret this to mean that they need to brush after breakfast, lunch and dinner. In reality, you need to brush after every time you eat, even if it’s just a quick bite of chocolate in the afternoon. Even a little bit of sugar can cause a cavity if allowed to sit on your teeth.

Avoid Caramels and Sticky Candies – While the occasional sticky candy, such as caramel, is alright, you generally want to avoid these sticky candy items. If you have braces, you should really go out of your way to find candies that aren’t particularly sticky or thick to enjoy. Sticky candies can get caught in orthodontia and cause damage to your braces over time.

When it comes to candy and dental health, moderation is key. A diet heavy in sweets will be damaging, but a few candy indulgences once in a while won’t do severe harm, as long as you always remember to brush after eating them.

“Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond”

Beach Braces Smile Quote #19 “Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond”

Many people overlook the care of their teeth as well as truly valuing their smile. A smile is an extremely expressive tool that we all use each and every day, caring for it is imperative to maintaining our confidence, our image and how we depict our happiness to the world. Just as this quote would suggest it’s very important for people to care for their teeth just as they would the most valuable diamond in a jewellery collection.

A smile is what makes us approachable and what we use to communicate happiness to other people. If people are unable to value their teeth they may not be confident in their smile and may also have difficulty smiling without any effort. It’s important that we be able to smile with other people and share a smile as this can brighten somebody’s day. Having the confidence to be able to perform a big open tooth ear to ear grin is what really helps us to connect as human beings. A guarded smile is nowhere near the same as a genuine confident one. Are you happy with your smile?

You never know the type of people that you might meet or who you might impress by showing off your perfect smile. This is why keeping your teeth healthy and regularly caring for each and every tooth in your head, as the quote would suggest is so very important to maintaining your appearance and valuing your happiness. Smiles and teeth truly can be more valuable than any diamond in existence.

Beach Braces Smile Quote #17 “There is no weapon in the feminine armory to which men are so vulnerable as they are to a smile.

A smile is one of the best tools that we can have.  A smile never hurt anyone.  If a smile can only help yourself and others, then why do you not smile as often as you should?  Are you embarrassed by the way your smile looks?  If this is the case Beach Braces would like to assist you in correcting your teeth so that you can have a smile that you are proud of.  One method of changing the way your smile looks is by getting braces.  Many adults think that they have waited too long and their smile is a lost cause.

This is not true at all!  Braces are not just limited to children alone.  Beach Braces offers a variety of options for children and adults alike.  If smiling can boost your ego, then how do you think you would feel if your smile had been corrected and you had the smile you have always wanted?  With advances in the technical side of orthodontics, there are many things that have been updated and changed in order to lower pain and discomfort levels as well as the amount of times that you will have to visit for check ups.

Another great thing about braces today is that there are many options to how you would like to straighten your teeth.  You can have metal braces, translucent braces, or even aligners such as Invisalign to help improve your smile.  When you come in for your first visit the orthodontist will go over what your options are and what they think will be the best option to better meet your needs.  You will know what will happen every step of the way and will be sure to get the attention you deserve.  Schedule your complementary consultation today!

To Smile or Not to Smile that is the Question

“Is a smile a question? Or is it the answer?”

straight smile

Beach Braces Smile Quote #15 “Is a smile a question? Or is it the answer?”

Smiling is most definitely an answer. Sometimes when asking a question a smile is all that it takes. Think of all the times in the past couple days that you smiled.

In these instances when you smiled were you content with what you had discovered?  Is this what caused your boost in joy? Or was it because someone made you laugh and you were joyed with the feeling that it gave to you.

We respond to situations with our emotions, be it happy or sad. When we smile its because we are feeling something and we are sure that what is being felt is making us happy or we appreciate the nature of it.

Smiling is the answer for many things, but we need to start using it more often. In a place where there is no smiling, people will become hard and calloused in their hearts. It should be our goal to go to these places and share our joy with them.

Since laughter and smiles are contagious, we should desire to bring that to people who are without happiness. Of course there is a place and a time for everything, but if you feel that you could brighten someone’s day with a smile, by all means smile away!

You might be the only person that day who has tried to boost their spirits and in the end you could have made them very happy. The question shouldn’t be if we should share our smiles with one another. The question should be how.

How can we spread positivity with a smile to others?  Start by just smiling at people. Chances are they will return the favor with a smile.  When you are comfortable with telling jokes, share them with some friends and see their faces change from a blank stare to completely happiness. Whatever you do, be happy and share that smile with everyone!

Unfortunately many people cover their smile with their hand, as they don’t feel comfortable with their smile and don’t wish to wear braces. A good alternative are clear braces, named Invisalign, adults especially feel most at ease using these clear braces.

You can call our office for more information.

“Most Smiles are Started by Another Smile”

Perfect Teeth Smiles

Beach Braces Smile Quote #10 “Most Smiles are Started by Another Smile”

Here is a test for you.  Go to Google.com, click images, and then type smile in the search bar.  Look at  the first 100 images.  Naturally after seeing so many smiles, one cannot help but smile themselves.  Let’s face it smiling is contagious.  Now just start smiling at someone.

See their reaction?   They are either going to immediately start smiling back, or they are going to ask what is wrong with you while they are smiling.

Just a small little gesture can affect so many people.  There are some that choose not to smile because they think their teeth are not beautiful enough for a smile.  With corrective braces and other orthodontic options, you too can have a beautiful smile to share with others.

There was a girl who would smile in all her school pictures up until the time that she was in the third grade and other people started making fun of her.  From then on she wouldn’t smile for pictures and if she would smile in person, she would just put her hand in front of her mouth.  Her parents took her to an orthodontist for a consultation.

In about 2 weeks she had a mouth full of metal and hopes of one day having a smile that she could be proud of.  A couple years later she was able to take the braces off.  The first time that she saw her smile, she couldn’t believe that it was hers.  Now in every picture that you see of her she has her teeth showing and is very happy.

In fact, she smiles all the time.  If you are like this girl, why not give Beach Braces a chance and schedule a consultation.  You too can have the smile of your dreams and share happiness with a smile with the world.

Can you Measure a Smile ?

 

 “All the Statistics in The World Can’t measure the Warmth of a Smile”

Beach Braces

Beach Braces Smile Quote #8 “All the Statistics in The World Can’t measure the Warmth of a Smile”

Have you ever thought of measuring a smile? Most scientists invest in various studies regarding smiles, how much people mean it, and how different smiles can be distinguished. Advanced studies even have patterns to determine if your smile is fake or real. These studies based their results on facial muscles they identified to be responsible when a person is smiling.

However, no matter how much studies were conducted, how many factors were considered, and how much results are shown, the question of measuring a smile is still a debatable topic.

So, can you really measure smile? How much joy does it give to other people? In what angle or amount of mouth opening is to be considered as the best smile? How much pain can certain smiles eliminate? How long must someone smile in order to lessen negative feelings? All these questions together with some thousand questions about smiles are yet to be answered and remain a mystery to be unfolded.

With the kind of technology that we have today, indeed experts can measure certain factors of smiles but no one can still decipher smile itself.

No matter how many studies are being conducted, in the end, it doesn’t really matter anyways as all the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile. After all, not everything in this world can be measured and that includes smile.
