Invisalign: Is it right for me?

Come to our office for a free consultation to see if Invisalign can give you the smile you always dreamed of. It is a great choice for your orthodontic treatment if you are looking for something that is:

•Invisible. No one can tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth. That means you can smile with more confidence during treatment, as well as after.
•Removable. You can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. You also can continue brushing and flossing as usual to keep your teeth healthy.
•Comfortable. The aligners have no brackets to stratch your inner lip and annoy your tongue like conventional braces do.
•Sports Friendly. You can play contact sports without braces and wires hurting the inside of your mouth if someone or something hits your face.

** BONUS: Invisalign’s technology allows you to see your virtual treatment plan when you start so you will know what your teeth will look like after you complete treatment. This will let you track your progress with Dr. Khadavi.

Q: What can I do to help get my kids through the holidays without a fresh bunch of cavities?

A: This time of year, kids are eating sweets constantly. First there’s all the candy at Halloween, then there are all of those tasty desserts at Thanksgiving, and then there are all of the cookies and other treats in December.

Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help get your kids through the holidays with healthy teeth. Discourage your kids from having little snacks of candy or other refined carbs here and there throughout the day, and encourage them to save up these treats and eat a bunch at once. Eating carbs makes the mouth more acidic, and every time a piece of candy is eaten it takes an hour for the acid inside the mouth to dissipate. So it’s actually better for your teeth to eat a bunch of carbs at once, and get it over with.

Save cookies, cakes or holiday pies for desserts after a meal, and don’t let kids eat them as treats at other times of the day. Eating a meal first will encourage saliva production, and that saliva will help wash away the acids in the mouth.

Also, have your kids rinse well with water after they enjoy treats, and encourage them to be extra diligent about brushing and flossing during the holiday season.

Finally, speak to your dentist. We have special products like sealants and fluoride varnishes that can help keep their teeth strong. Also, we can motivate your children to work on their oral hygiene more diligently.
