It’s that time of the year again where we gather around with
our beloved friends and family to give thanks. At the core of this gathering is
a Thanksgiving feast. Whether one person is cooking or your having a potluck style
dinner, each dish is important to a complete Thanksgiving meal. However, side dishes
might outshine entrees on this day.
With all the hassle that comes along with cooking on
Thanksgiving we want to help you lighten your load. Here’s a list of 7 side
dishes you can make BEFORE Thanksgiving Day!
Contrary to belief traditional metal braces are only one of
multiple choices, and we want to let you know about the clear choice.
Traditional metal braces include metal brackets attached to
the teeth and connected by metal wires, which is the most common treatment
option to date. However, as dentistry has progressed with the times we now have
invisible and less visible options. Deciding to undergo orthodontic treatment
to improve your smile not only affects your appearance, but it affects your
lifestyle as well. Largely for adults, the stigma of traditional metal braces
may deter many from seeking treatment. Clear are discreet and comfortable, and
you’re choosing the clear option we recommend is Damon Braces.
Esthetics are the number one reason for choosing to go
clear, and Damon Braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to
keep clean. Damon brackets have an advantage over traditional brackets in that
they do not require Elastic ties. Having braces used to mean a mouthful of
wires with elastic ties and uncomfortable orthodontic adjustments. Instead of
using elastic ties to hold the wire to the bracket, Damon brackets utilize a
passive, self-litigating system. This means the wires are held in place by a
sliding mechanism. This sliding mechanism allows for more freedom of movement
and eliminates the need for tightening by the orthodontist.
In addition to avoiding uncomfortable adjustment
appointments, eliminating the use of elastic ties also allows for a more
attractive final result. Even with proper brushing and flossing, plaque tends
to gather around elastic ties leading to erosion of the enamel around the
bracket, which can mean permanent marks on your teeth when the brackets are
removed. Damon brackets are easier to keep clean, making dental hygiene easy
More adult orthodontic patients are seeking orthodontic
treatment, and it's not hard to figure out why. Appliances that are barely
noticeable have been developed to give adults more discreet choices when it
comes to orthodontic treatment. Straightening teeth can be an important part of
that confidence-boosting makeover process.
