Smile. Be Someone’s Reason to Smile

Be Someone’s Smile by Improving Your Smile

 

An orthodontist wants to be someone’s reason to smile, and that is why one of these individuals spends many years studying the orthodontic profession. Anyone visiting an orthodontic office can have a fast evaluation with three-dimensional imaging equipment to determine if they have wide gaps between their teeth or other problems that require treatment. The process of an examination to learn more about your malocclusions requires only a few minutes, and most patients think that the experience is fun.

After the examination, you will have a consultation with the orthodontist to decide if you want to wear clear aligners for approximately one year. Invisalign aligners are made of comfortable plastic, and you can smile while wearing these because no one can see the devices. Alternatively, you might learn that braces are a better option for your crooked teeth, but there are new types that repair malocclusions faster or that are worn on the backs of your teeth.

 

Schedule an Appointment for Each Member of Your Family

 

When you are trying to find an orthodontist for every member of your family, call Beach Braces,  Manhattan Beach, Calif. Dr. Patricia J. Panucci has the latest diagnostic equipment in her new office, making it easier to learn if you have mild, moderate or serious malocclusions.

All People Smile in the Same Language

All People Smile in the Same Language

A smile can be at once disarming, friendly, and confident — it helps show other people that you care about them, that you’re interested in what they have to say, and that you are satisfied and happy. The communicatory power of a smile is truly extraordinary: people do not have to speak your language or know anything about you to appreciate the power of your smile. Visiting an orthodontist to be fitted for braces or an Invisalign retainer can help you find more confidence in yourself and your teeth — and thus give you even more of a reason to smile!

The technology behind brace fixtures has improved tremendously since the introduction of the clunky metal food traps that you saw as a kid. Behind-the-teeth, lingual and empower braces all help align crooked teeth and correct over and underbites without being obtrusive, uncomfortable, or unattractive. Adults who are reluctant to receive orthodontic treatment often cite concerns over appearance and discomfort, but new style orthodontic appliances remove these concerns from the picture entirely.

The Future is Here

Invisalign treatment devices have advanced even further in a short time. Because they are easily customizable, simple to remove, and incredibly effective, they have rapidly surpassed other appliances for the most trusted teeth straightening method. 3-D computer graphics technology makes for an incredibly precise fit, and expert calibration means that you hardly ever even feel the retainer as it is in your mouth.

Having confidence in your smile has a myriad of benefits — strangers become friends more easily, your work colleagues and bosses will notice a greater level of comfort with you, and people will remember your face and demeanour more positively. Manhattan Beach, California, is a beautiful place — a place like that deserves an equally beautiful face!

Visit or contact Beach Braces orthodontist today to set up a consultation and determine the best path for you to achieve all of your grinning goals.

If You See a Friend Without a Smile

give smiles

Can Smiles Spread?

Yes, smiles really are contagious! Your smile truly does affect those around you. The area of your brain that controls your smiling mechanism and the times that you mimic someone else’s smile is in the cingulate cortex, which is a response area that is automatic. Swedish researchers showed subjects pictures of different emotions, including anger, fear, joy and surprise. When a subject was shown a picture of a smiling person, the researchers told them to frown. What the researchers found was that the subjects naturally did the opposite. It actually took a lot of effort for the subjects to put a frown on their face. When you smile at someone, the odds are good that they can’t help but return that smile to you. If they don’t, it’s only because they are trying really hard to be a Grumpy Gus!

Who Is Missing Your Smile?

We all want to make the people around us happy. That’s just a natural part of being a social, well-adjusted individual. We would all rather be around someone who’s flashing smiles as opposed to frowns. But passing along the smiles may be harder if you’re not happy with your own smile. While a smile is a smile is a smile, you may be less apt to flash your less-than-perfect whites to a friend or stranger who sorely needs it.

How Can The World Benefit From Your Smile?

Invisalign aligners can straighten your teeth without the use of braces. You can remove these invisible aligners, which means that no one has to know that you’re straightening your teeth. A benefit of Invisalign is that you can eat and drink as you normally do. You can also brush and floss as you would in your normal routine. Because these aligners are not braces, there are no metals, wires or brackets that can cause abrasions.

If you’re interesting in having the world benefit from your smile, contact Beach Braces to see if Invisalign is the right solution for your smile. You and your orthodontist can create a treatment plan that will give you your perfect smile.

Smile; Don’t Take Life to Seriously!

fun and smile

In today’s world, it seems like we are bombarded with stress and pressure. Sometimes, it can be hard for moms to get a break from the constant drive to be what society deems “perfect”. While it’s fantastic to strive to do your best, Dawn Gluskin reminds us all of some important truths when she states “Don’t take life too seriously! Nobody gets out alive anyway. Smile. Be goofy. Take chances. Have fun. Inspire.” Today we’re going to focus on how to do just that!

Be Goofy

Yes, there are times when you have to act like a mature adult, but there are also times when you can “let down your hair” and just enjoy the moment. Take the opportunity to goof off with your kids or enjoy time with some friends.

Take Chances

It’s easy for moms to get stuck in a comfort zone and feel nervous doing anything out of the norm. Today, break free from the bondage and feel free to step out there. Take chances and release your wild side.

Have Fun

Go out for pizza in the middle of the week, ride the scariest roller coaster at the amusement park, and listen to your favorite music on the way to work.

Inspire Others

Every day, you have the opportunity to make an impact on the lives of those around you. Whether you’re in college, working full-time, or a stay-at-home mom who only sees her kids, husband, and the workers at the grocery store, you have the chance to make a difference. Look to inspire those around you with acts of kindness and words of understanding.

Smile

How can you tell a happy girl? By the big smile on her face! Make a conscious effort to always wear that frown upside down, and let your smile bring joy wherever you go. It’s amazing what a smile can do for not only those around you but even for your own attitude. If you feel uncomfortable about your smile, consider looking into braces or Invisalign treatment.

Here at Beach Braces Orthodontics, we specialize in helping both adults and children unlock their hidden self-confidence by developing a beautiful smile. We will work with you to help you get the smile you want by using braces or Invisalign treatments. Contact us today and find out how our orthodontist can help you improve your quality of life!

Accelerated Orthodontics; Pros and Cons

The World of Accelerated Orthodontics

Beach braces

Braces implementation is one of the leading ways that an orthodontist tries to help a patient to fix malocclusion. Malocclusion may take the form of slanted teeth, over bites, under bites, crowding and the like. The time that it would take for you to recover from traditional braces treatment is two to three years. Other types of braces such as Invisalign, Damon braces, and lingual braces may cut your treatment time significantly. However, those types of braces often still require at least one year for effectiveness. If you are someone who wants to see quick results, then you may want to consider speaking to an orthodontic specialist about accelerated orthodontics.

What Is Accelerated Orthodontics?

Accelerated orthodontics is a practice that an innovative orthodontist created. It involves a surgical procedure that induces faster teeth shifting and immediate natural bone healing. The specialist performs the procedure using an anesthetic, and the discomfort usually feels about as painful as a normal tooth cleaning. Accelerated orthodontics is a specialty that not all doctors practice. Therefore, it is important for you to speak with your local office about the procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Accelerated Orthodontics?

The main benefit of accelerated orthodontics is that it provides you with a faster result. Instead of wearing your braces and following braces tips for three years, your teeth will be straight in as little as three to eight months. You can move on with your life faster and become the smiling beauty that you always wanted to be. The system can also provide you with a health advantage. Straight teeth allow you access to your other teeth so that you can clean them properly. Malocclusion sometimes causes cleaning obstructions.

What Are the Disadvantages of Accelerated Orthodontics?

The disadvantage of accelerated orthodontics is that the number of specialists who perform it is small. Accelerated orthodontics requires special training. Therefore, you should deeply consider hiring a specialist that you find is capable of such a procedure. Another disadvantage of the procedure is that it will involve invasive surgery. Infection is always a risk with any surgery. Additionally, a crowding issue may require the orthodontist to alter the surface of your teeth. She may have to slim them to create additional room so that your perfect smile can surface. Accelerated orthodontics is a fairly new practice, but more doctors are learning how to perform the procedures every day.

Speak to Someone Today About Accelerated Orthodontics

Beach Braces can provide you with several options for teeth straightening. You can talk to Dr. Panucci about different types of braces, and you can ask her about the accelerated program. Her goal is to help you to shape the future of your smile through personalized consultation and guidance. You can contact our office by calling the dedicated phone number. Alternatively, you can complete an online appointment request. Someone will get back to you as quickly as possible so that you can come in and meet the smiling orthodontist.

How Does Invisalign Move Teeth?

What are these “Invisible Braces”?

You’ve probably heard about “invisible braces” that straighten teeth in less time than traditional metal braces. If you’ve thought about invisible braces for yourself or for your teenage son or daughter, you may be wondering how something so simple can straighten teeth as well as braces. While not able to do everything braces can, like fixing a bad overbite, the invisible braces can move teeth horizontally into proper position for a beautiful smile. Actually, they are not “invisible braces” at all, which is why they have many advantages.

The comfortable, clear and nearly invisible trays, called aligners, work by using controlled and timed force to gradually move teeth into position. The movement in each patient’s case is mapped out by the orthodontist so that each set of aligners move a few teeth at a time. Over the course of the entire treatment, the patient receives a new set of aligners about every two weeks. For most adults, the entire course of treatment is about a year. For teenagers, it’s usually a little longer.

Advantages Over Braces:

  • Practically invisible
  • Comfortable
  • Removable
  • Easy eating and brushing without the aligners on
  • Less orthodontist office visits throughout treatment

Unlike braces, which require a lengthy adjustment period and repeated adjustments by the orthodontist, the aligners are comfortable, and you simply get a new set from the orthodontist about every two weeks through your treatment.

Invisible aligners are not suitable for children, but teenagers can get a special type.

Invisalign Teen

  • Suitable for teenagers who have lost all of their baby teeth
  • Eliminates the embarrassment of wearing braces
  • Early correction of crooked teeth prevents more problems later

FAQ#5: Who is Eligible for Invisalign Teen?

Cost Compared to Braces

Metal braces are generally the least expensive method of orthodontic treatment, but the cost of invisible aligners is often less than people expect. Dental insurance may pay for at least part of the cost. When you consider the advantages the aligners have over braces, the slightly higher cost may be well worth it.

If you or your teenage son or daughter has crooked teeth, crowding, spacing or minor bite problems, and you’re interested in learning more about possible orthodontic solutions, you can contact our Invisalign preferred provider. Our orthodontist can meet with you for a consultation to discuss aligners and see if they would work for your or your teenager. You can also discuss the cost of treatment. Invisalign in Manhattan Beach may more affordable than you think.

You can also visit Beach Braces website to read more about different orthodontic treatments and the importance of correcting malocclusion (crooked teeth) for health reasons. Information for parents and teens is available at the Invisalign Teen page.

Don’t wait. If you want a beautiful smile and healthier teeth, now is the time to see if invisible aligners may be right for you. If you feel convinces and ready for treatment or you have further queries in your mind, feel free to contact Beach Braces for expert help.

Those Fancy Sauces are doing more Harm than Good

Beach braces, orthodontist specialist

Teeth Staining Food # 2: Deeply-Colored Sauces like Soya Sauce, Tomato Sauce etc.

You can brush your teeth all you want, use mouthwash multiple times a day, even use hydrogen peroxide, but those discolorations and stains on your teeth won’t go away. Did you know that the foods you eat can cause stains to appear on your teeth? Dark and deeply-colored sauces are among the worst foods that you can eat. Something as simple as spaghetti sauce can change the way you look and feel about your smile.

Acidity and Stains:

Spaghetti sauce, ketchup and other sauces and condiments contain tomatoes, which have a high acidity level. The more you eat those foods, the more the acidity breaks through the enamel on your teeth. This can lead to cavities and other dental conditions, but it can also cause those sauces to discolor your teeth. Soya sauce, also known as soy sauce is a popular addition to Asian dishes but before you add a dash to your next stir fry, think about how it can change your smile.

Healthy Eating:

As a parent, you want your kids to eat healthy. Feeding them the wrong things can lead to a trip to a teeth whitening orthodontist in Manhattan Beach. Even if you take the time to think about what to feed your children and spend hours planning meals, you might still feed your kids pasta sauces and Asian dishes that cause discoloration, decay of the enamel on their teeth and even cavities. It’s important that you take care of your kids’ dental hygiene as early as possible. For affordable dental braces in Manhattan Beach residents often call on Dr. Patricia J. Panucci for help. As a preferred Invisalign provider Manhattan Beach residents know that she can give their kids a brighter and straighter smile. Schedule your appointment with the orthodontist at Beach Braces today.
