Improve Your Smile By Fixing Your Teeth

Dr. Debasish Mridha is an author who wants to know if you have made someone smile today. If you don’t like to smile because your teeth are misaligned, then it is time to visit an orthodontist for a consultation. You might have only a small malocclusion of one tooth that is easy to fix with Invisalign aligners that are worn for one year or less. Alternatively, you may have major orthodontic problems, including crowding or an overbite. When you have serious malocclusions, you will need to wear braces for two to four years to shift your teeth into the correct positions.

You Can Smile While Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment

When you wear aligners, no one will notice the devices while you smile at them. Aligners are made of clear plastic so that other people can see your natural teeth. You are required to wear aligners for the majority of the day and night, but you can remove the devices to brush your teeth. However, if you are wearing metal brackets and wires, then other individuals can see the items easily. To prevent others from seeing your wires and brackets, you can choose lingual devices or ceramic color-matching brackets.

A gorgeous smile is an important asset that puts others at ease and lets them know that you care. Unfortunately, for people with misaligned teeth, that smile can be a tremendous source of embarrassment. Fortunately, an orthodontist can help.

Why You Should Straighten Your Teeth

Having straight teeth dramatically improves your appearance. Most people visit an orthodontist because they want to achieve an attractive and healthy-looking smile.

However, achieving straight teeth isn’t just about aesthetics. If teeth are misaligned, it’s more difficult to maintain good oral health. When teeth are crooked or crowded, they become harder to clean. Therefore, by getting your teeth straightened, you can protect the health of your teeth by preventing cavities, gum disease, and other common oral problems.

Straightening Methods

Over the last couple of decades, the world of orthodontic technology has advanced enormously. Today, there is a variety of straightening options available.

Invisalign

One of the most popular straightening methods is Invisalign thanks to its invisible nature. Because Invisalign uses clear plastic trays instead of metal devices, patients can straighten their teeth in a virtually invisible way.

Plus, Invisalign treatment is extremely convenient. Patients can easily take their Invisalign trays out in order to drink, eat, floss and brush their teeth. Invisalign trays are custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth. Every two weeks, you’ll switch out your pair of trays for the next pair in the series until you have finally achieved straight teeth.

Damon Braces

Also known as self-litigating braces, this method straightens teeth quickly and effectively. These braces are made up of brackets and wires that are attached to the teeth with a bonding material. Unlike traditional braces, they require no elastics. Damon braces are also less noticeable than traditional braces thanks to the smaller brackets and thinner wires.

About Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics

Here at Gorton & Schmohl Orthodontics, we are dedicating to earning our patients’ respect and trust – and keeping it! Founding partners Dr. Jasmine Gorton and Dr. Bill Schmohl are each board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics, a voluntary certification just 35 percent of orthodontists nationwide currently hold.

We proudly offer the latest technological advances in orthodontic care, including the Damon Clear Braces system, Invisalign and Braces with Colors for kids and teens. Our practice philosophy focuses on maintaining the health of permanent teeth from a very early age, minimizing the need for extractions and invasive surgery later in life.

smileThere is a thin line between smile and laughter ― SantoshKalwar

There’s nothing like a beautiful smile to let the people around you know that you care. Sadly, however, many people are born with teeth that aren’t straight. As a result, these people cover up their smile as much as possible.

The good news is that an orthodontist can give you the beautiful smile of your dreams. In fact, today’s orthodontists offer a variety of straightening methods, allowing you to achieve the results that you desire in a quicker, more comfortable and more discreet way.

By straightening your teeth, you’re improving your appearance as well as your oral health. When teeth are straight, it’s easier to brush and floss, preventing gum disease and cavities. Plus, having straight teeth can dramatically improve confidence levels.

Damon Braces

Damon braces are renowned for using advanced orthodontic technology in order to straighten teeth quickly and effectively. Using brackets and wires, this straightening method can bring even the most crooked, uneven or crowded teeth into perfect alignment, giving you a beautiful smile at last.

Because these braces are self-litigating, they don’t require any elastics. The wires adjust along with the teeth, eliminating the need for frequent visits to the orthodontist to have the wires tightened. Plus, these braces work much more quickly than traditional metal braces.

Damon braces are less obvious in appearance as well. The wires are thin and the brackets are small. Plus, patients can choose clear brackets.

Invisalign

Invisalign treatment is radically different from braces. Instead of relying on brackets and wires, Invisalign relies on clear aligner trays that are made of a thin and comfortable plastic material. These aligner trays subtly move teeth into a straightened position. Each pair of trays is worn for two weeks before being switched out for the next pair in the series.

What patients love best about Invisalign is that these clear aligner trays are invisible. Plus, they can be easily and painlessly removed in order to eat and practice dental hygiene habits like flossing and brushing.

You Can Live More By Loving More With a Beautiful New Smile

Dr. Debasish Mridha is an author and physician who believes that smiling helps you to love and trust more. The best way to have a gorgeous smile is by visiting an orthodontist at an early age to have an examination. If you have misaligned teeth, then it feels awkward to smile at anyone. Fortunately, there are fast ways to fix your teeth with modern braces or Invisalign aligners. When you visit an orthodontic facility, you can undergo an evaluation that includes medical images so that you can see how your teeth will look after treatment.

Modern Orthodontic Treatment Is Fast and Easy

You will love wearing clear aligners that are made of durable molded plastic that will shift your teeth slowly into the best positions. Every two weeks, you must change to a different set of aligners to repair your smile in six months to one year. However, if you have serious malocclusions of your teeth, then an orthodontist will recommend braces that are worn for two to four years. It is possible to choose brackets and wires that are bright colors, or you might prefer clear brackets and invisible wires instead.

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness

smileA warm smile is the universal language of kindness

No matter where you go in the world, a kind and open smile paves the way for making new friends and brightening everyone’s day. Even when language barriers stop clear communication, a smile shows you mean no harm and want to get along with everyone nearby.

Do Not Hide Your Smile Away

First impressions are so important in this world. When you first meet a new person or walk into a new place, you want everyone to like you and for no problems to arise. A smile is one way this goal gets accomplished, and if you feel shy or self-conscious about sharing your smile, it can cause people to think negatively about you.

Misaligned or unattractive teeth are some of the top reasons why people keep their lips tight shut and fail to share a warm, open smile with others. Gaps, crooked teeth, and missing teeth are looked down upon in this modern world where every celebrity and magazine model has the perfect, gleaming white grin. These problems can affect your social and professional lives.

What Can an Orthodontist Do to Help

A professional orthodontist can provide solutions for all of the above-mentioned problems and more. Even if you have no intention of becoming a toothpaste model, it is important to have a pleasant and attractive smile in this world. Not only will it help you convey friendliness and camaraderie to others you meet, it will also give you the self-confidence to walk into any room and instantly feel at home there. Better still, a bright and beautiful smile will help others feel the same way about you.

Learn How to Smile Again

If you have forgotten how to smile because you are embarrassed by your crooked teeth, then it is time to visit an orthodontist. It is easy to have a new smile by undergoing orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign. In six months to three years, you can have an attractive smile again. Clear aligners are suitable for you when you have mild malocclusions. Alternatively, if you have severely misaligned teeth or when you are a child, then you can wear braces instead. Today, you don’t have to wear traditional metal orthodontic devices because there are devices that have color-matching ceramic brackets.

Have an Orthodontic Examination

When you are wearing aligners on your teeth, the items are barely noticeable when you smile, and if you select color-matching brackets or lingual devices, then it is also difficult for someone to notice the items. You can continue to smile at everyone without feeling self-conscious. The only way to know what type of orthodontic treatment is best for your teeth is by having a thorough examination from an orthodontist. With modern medical images, it is possible to see how your teeth and smile will look after orthodontic treatment is completed.

A Smile Is An Inexpensive Way to Change Your Looks

smile quotesA Smile is an Inexpensive Way to Change Your Looks

When you see people with a beautiful smile, do you notice how straight their teeth are? Have you also thought how fortunate they were to have such naturally beautiful teeth and charming smiles? Well, it may surprise you to know that most of those lucky people were not born with straight teeth. In fact, a lot of people have had problems with their teeth being too close together, misaligned, or they had gaps between their teeth that were corrected with braces. And, after their teeth were straightened, they were no longer embarrassed to talk to strangers or to show off their glamorous teeth with a winning smile. But, behind every one of those lovely smiles is a knowledgeable orthodontist who made the transformations possible.

Invisalign for Adults

Most adults hesitate having their teeth straightened because they don’t want to be seen with the traditional wire braces across their teeth. But, today’s orthodontic techniques enable adults needing to have corrective teeth procedures performed without permanently attached wires, and it is called Invisalign. These appliances are wireless, removable for cleaning and while eating, and are nearly invisible for anyone to detect. New, custom made, Invisaligns are made every few months throughout the procedure to accommodate each re-positioning phase as the teeth align.

A Smile Is Something You Can’t Give Away; It Always Comes Back To You!

smileA Smile Is Something You Can’t Give Away; It Always Comes Back To You!

When you give a smile, you usually get one in return. What an easy way to brighten the day of a loved one or a stranger. A beautiful smile can take you many places in life. It is often the door opener for a job offer or a first date.

An orthodontist specializes in the treatment of straightening malformed teeth and bites due to occlusions that form when adult teeth erupt. There can also be a genetic factor involved where the problem may present sooner. They can examine children as young as 7 years old to get a look via digital X-ray to determine if the adult teeth are growing in properly. Misaligned teeth that are not properly straightened and maintained by orthodontics can result in poor bite, jaw and head pain and loss of teeth.

At Marin Orthodontics, Drs. Gorton, Schmohl and Nichelini use the most advanced and least invasive techniques to fit braces properly. The faculty is experienced in the treatment of orthodontic issues of all natures. Your orthodontist at Marin really listens and cares about the well being and comfort of each and every patient and treats each as an individual. Since orthodontics is never a one size fits all situation, every patient is given an examination and consultation based on their individual needs.

Our orthodontists will offers several treatments for many types of orthodontic issues. Invisalign and Damon clear braces offer nearly invisible correction of misaligned teeth. Invisalign can be removed for cleaning and eating. We offer braces with colors for fashionable correction in addition to metal ones with wires. We can often use the Acceledent correction technique to hasten correction in many cases.

A Smile Is a Universal Welcome!

smileA Smile Is a Universal Welcome!

Give Everyone a Welcoming Smile

If you are visiting a foreign country, then remember that a smile is the universal language. By offering someone a happy smile, you are opening the door to a new friendship. A beautiful smile is designed to welcome others, but when you have crooked teeth, it is time to visit an orthodontist for treatment. The best time to undergo orthodontic treatment is when you are a child because your facial bones are soft, helping your teeth to shift quickly into the right positions. However, many adults are visiting an orthodontic facility for their first evaluation because they also want to have a welcoming smile.

Aligners Can Give You a Better Smile

You might have only minor malocclusions that are repairable with clear plastic aligners. Invisalign aligners are suitable for teenagers or adults, and the devices are easy to wear. You will receive several sets of aligners that are made to move your teeth slowly into a better position in your mouth to correct your bite while giving you a gorgeous smile. An orthodontist will require you to wear aligners for most of the day and night, but you can remove the devices while you are eating meals or brushing your teeth. After two weeks, you will throw away the current set of aligners before changing to a new set in the series.

Modern life may seem to come with its fair share of disappointments and negative scenarios. No one is ever going to live a perfect life that is void of any sadness; however, that doesn’t mean they must constantly express sorrow on their faces. Teaching your children the power of smiling can help them to live more fulfilling lives starting from the nascent stages of their existence.

Self Pride

Sometimes, kids want to hide their smiles once they have braces. However, modern braces are different. Whether your children have Invisalign or another type, the orthodontist can select a set that is right for them. Kids do not need to feel as though they must shirk away from their friends once they have these devices on their teeth. Instead, they can wear them with pride. When they walk around with a sense of pride, this positive vibe can start to spill into their work.

Emulating Joy

In a world where many negative scenarios happen on a regular basis, some people find it hard to find joy. Even kids can feel affected from the negative happenings around them. When you teach your kids how to smile, however, their entire beings can start to feel happier. Even when something negative has happened, feeling entirely bad with a huge grin on is a difficult task. Your kids can use their new smiles from Invisalign to boost their own moods.

Inspiring Others

Your kids might generally feel happy and pleased with their lives, and they may not smile because they are content with how they feel on the inside. In addition to encouraging them to display the progress their teeth have made from their orthodontist appointments, you can also tell the that a smile might make someone else feel better.
