Smile Quote No. 8: There is no weapon in the feminine armory to which men are so vulnerable as they are to a smile – Dorothy Dix
Connecting with men can be very difficult for some women. Whether it is nerves or otherwise many women are unsure how to connect with men or break the ice. Strangely enough there is one tool that woman can use to connect with men, a tool that works universally well. A smile is one of the best ways that you can become instantly approachable and a way that you can connect with people almost instantly.
Lingual Braces v Invisalign
Nice straight teeth are often highly desirable, but many people do not like being confined to using braces to achieve them. At an older age, braces don’t just look uncomfortable; they can affect the facial appearance while in place. Luckily, in 1998 an innovative breakthrough emerged for tooth re positioning. This was the launching of Invisalign.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign are plastic aligners that cannot be seen. The public responded quickly to this new development, as they thought that crooked and misaligned teeth could now be corrected without the need for the attachment of brackets and wires to the teeth for long periods of time. It was soon learnt however that Invisalign does not always make a magical improvement, but can be beneficial in certain circumstances. The plastic is simply not strong enough to exert the same force as clear braces, such as lingual and conventional steel braces. This is particularly true for such actions as turning teeth round and lengthening teeth. In moderate to severe teeth alignment cases then, clear braces can be used or conventional metal braces.

What is the Best Age for My Child to See an Orthodontist?
Seven years of age has been considered for a long time the most appropriate age for your child to attend an orthodontist for the first time. Dr. Don Demas, of Team Demas Orthodontics, fully supports this age too, as it is the best age for a child’s teeth to be assessed for either immediate treatment or possible treatment at a later age.
Once a child has reached the age of 8, it is most likely that he or she will have lost their first eight teeth. These are incisors and are normally immediately replaced by eight permanent teeth. At 6 years of age, the emergence of your child’s first four molars, those that will become permanent, takes place. Therefore, by 7 years of age, most children will have no less than four permanent incisors and four permanent molars. If the number of teeth is less or more than that, problems of crowding, extra or missing teeth might eventuate.
