Toothbrushing Mistake No.7: “Skipping Inner Tooth Surfaces”

Toothbrusing Mistake 7

How does skipping inner tooth surfaces (the surface in which your tongue presses against) when brushing affect your overall oral health? Leaving any part of the tooth behind can cause decay from  bacteria which was not removed when brushing.

The bacteria can spread all over the mouth (tongue, cheek, gums, and teeth) which can also damage other teeth which are thoroughly brushed. In order to avoid this scenario, it is best to include all parts of the teeth when brushing, including the inner surfaces of the teeth. The inner surfaces are commonly skipped since not all people are aware of the detrimental effects of skipping them.

Besides, since the inner surfaces of the teeth are not as visible as the outer ones, most people think it is not necessary to clean them properly thus they are making the biggest mistake when it comes to oral hygiene. Richard H. Price, DMD, the consumer adviser for the American Dental Association says that the plaque that you can’t see is as important to remove as the plaque that you can see so don’t just focus on removing plaque on the outer surfaces. Furthermore, dentists found out that the most skipped area when brushing is the inner surfaces of the lower front teeth so make sure to include this the next time you brush.

Overall, make sure to brush every part of your mouth when brushing in order to ensure that bacteria which causes bad breath and tooth decay is removed.

How Far Away is Your Smile ?

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

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!

“Most Smiles are Started by Another Smile”

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 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.

Life With Braces – Oral Hygiene

Oral Hygiene is very important to your overall health and especially for your gums, teeth and mouth while wearing braces.

In the second of her video series, Nicky S demonstrates the cool tools and applications she was supplied with by Beach Braces to ensure her oral hygiene stays a top priority while undergoing her orthodontic experience.

Nicky S. Life with Braces – Oral Hygiene

oral hygiene - mouth washRegular brushing and flossing can help keep your teeth and braces clean. Sometimes food particles can get stuck in the wires of braces and extra care is needed to clean them without causing any damage. An interdental toothbrush is ideal for cleaning your teeth between brushing to gently eliminate any small particles of food trapped between the teeth and braces.

Oral Hygiene Working Through the Night

Nicky also uses a mouthwash every day before sleeping. This mouthwash keeps working throughout the night and keeps her oral hygiene fresh. Nicky’s favorite flavor is… bubble gum! Yummy!!

We have a collection of Patient Care Videos to help you keep your oral hygiene at it’s best. To view videos about brushing with an interdental brush, flossing and many more ways of taking care of your life with braces click here.
