Braces and Photos: Can They Mix?

Braces and Photos: Can They Mix?

Who doesn’t want to look as good as possible in a photo? If you are taking steps to correct misaligned teeth, or make your smile the best it can be, does that mean ducking out of photos? Absolutely not! There are a number of almost invisible orthdontic options to straighten teeth or correct jaw alignment. Some options have completely removable trays, that can be discreetly stored away when the cameras come out. If you keep your eye on the big picture: straighter teeth for the rest of your life, mixing braces and photos is no problem at all.

Holiday Blunders That Can Destroy Orthodontic Treatments

Yep, it’s absolutely true: There are some blunders that are very, very easy to avoid. However, if you choose not to pay attention to them, you can end up causing some very serious damage to the orthodontic treatment that you’re currently receiving. This might be brackets and wires. It might include clear aligner trays. Whatever the case, we advise you to take a quick listen to the things we have in mind and then steer clear of them to the best of your ability. Remember, your orthodontic experience won’t last forever. Avoiding certain risks is well worth making it through without creating complications in the process.
