No One Is Too Poor to Give a Smile

No One

“No one is too poor to give a smile – a gift, often of greater consequence than any sum of money.” ― VironikaTugaleva

A beautiful smile is worth more than any outfit or accessory when it comes to making a good first impression. It also brightens the day of anyone who sees it. As Vironika Tugaleva said, “No one is too poor to give a smile – a gift, often, of greater consequence than any sum of money.” When it comes to orthodontics, a smile can also be a gift someone gives themselves, or that a parent gives a child. Team Demas has dedicated their career to giving anyone seeking an orthodontist in Southington that gift. Though braces and other implements are an investment, they are one that pays off a thousand-fold throughout a person’s lifetime.

Are Braces Painful?

Orthodontic braces have come a long way over the years. They are smaller, faster and, in some ways, less painful than they were decades ago. The one thing that hasn’t changed, of course, is that they move your teeth. It is not

Painless Attachment

There was a time when the process of having braces put on involved forcing a metal band around each tooth, rather like putting rings on your fingers.

This process was painful, as you can imagine, because space for two thicknesses of metal had to be created between every tooth and its neighbor before the actual straightening even began.
