Beach Braces Smile Quote #16 “The shortest distance between two people is a smile”

A great philosopher once said “A smile connects us, you and me…A smile can be a language anyone can learn to speak”. Who is this great philosopher you ask?  None other than the great Kermit the Frog!

No matter where you are in the world a smile is universal. It means the same thing in every country. Even if you have no idea how to speak that language, you will be able to share happiness with them.

Scientists have found that when we smile neuropeptides are released in our brain. This allows the rest of our body to know what is going on. So when we smile endorphins are released giving us an energy boost and the ability to fight off stress. It has also been said that endorphins can cause pain relief. With all of these positives we can see how smile and laughter is the best medicine.

Wouldn’t that be great to get a prescription from the doctor that said, “Must laugh three times daily. Take with a full glass of water for fast relief” The awesome thing here is that we don’t need a prescription to laugh.

All we have to do is just begin smiling! Of course we cannot plan what is going to happen through our entire day. There may be things that happen around you to cause stress or unhappiness. The best way to combat those feeling is to try to stay positive and know that this is not the end of the world and you will be able to smile again soon.

Try your hardest to stay positive and surround yourself with others who do the same. Before you know it you will have that little pep in your step once again, and you will be ready to share your smile with the world!

Positive Hitchhiking

“If I saw you hitchhiking, I’d smile and return your thumb’s up, just for you doing such a great job of being a positive roadside influence ”

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #5

While we would never advocate that you hitchhike in this day and age, or even replicate the thumbs up and smile to a tired hitchhiker loosing the will to live by the roadside (especially if there is a stop sign or traffic lights ahead) we thought Jarod Kintz’s quote was quite unique.

Jarod Kintz is a self professed writer of randomness, after being rejected from two leading universities creative writing programs, he has embarked on fulfilling his career as a full time author. Some of his latest publications have included; Emails from a Madman, I want and It Occurred to me.

If the above quote didn’t make you smile we at least hope it made you laugh, I only wish we had the hitchhikers reply, although it would probably be too crude to publish 🙂

Have a great Monday California!

Smile the Grouch Away

“If You Want to Spoil the Day of a Grouch, Give him a Smile”

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #4

I know it’s hard, but it’s often the best way to not only ruin a grouches day but to boost your own, as the simple act of smiling reduces stress and releases mood enhancing endorphins. It’s still a mystery why humans are the only species that laugh, but I think I can safely say that in doing so you definitely feel better.

The first iconic smiley face was drawn in 1963 by American commercial artist Harvey Ball in under ten minutes and went on to sell for $45 to an insurance company who wanted to roll out a mood enhancing marketing campaign. If you’re curious how far away you can use your new found anti grouch super powers from, the answer is 33 feet.

So next time that grouch tries to ruin your day smile them into mercy. 🙂

If you want to create the perfect smile but are not keen on traditional braces, why not see if you are a eligible for clear braces, namely Invisalign, if you have any further question please contact us using the details below.

Beach Braces Smile Quote  #3

It’s often said when you smile everyone smiles with you, this is so true. It’s amazing what a difference a smile can make when you walk into a room full of new people, or when you’re simply passing someone in the street. Smiling automatically puts everyone at ease and often leads to further social interaction.

Let’s face it being smiled at makes you feel good, so next time when you see someone feeling a bit flat, and give them a big smile! It’s free and effortless.

Did you ever stop to think smiling is one of the few universal signs that everyone can understand and appreciate. If you thought it was a nod or shake of the head, think again! In Bulgaria and India theses actions have a completely different meaning.

Who smiles the most ?

Thailand dubbed “Smileland” by many probably do it the best and for good reason, numerous research projects have proven that smiling actually reduces stress and boosts the immune system.

Smiles can vary we have the classic “obligatory smile” well he/she smiled at me I better smile back, then we have the “false smile” hmmm never goes down well and there easily detected. Finally we have the “genuine smile” which is a complete crowd pleaser.

So why don’t people smile more? Sadly a large percentage of people don’t feel comfortable with either the colour of alignment of their teeth. Don’t live life not smiling Dr. Panucci at Beach Braces based in Manhattan Beach offers a wide range of treatments for both children and adults.

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.

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.

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.
