“Days may smile and may not. But you can smile anytime, just smile.” ― Samar AlDhamadi

Life can be described as a tug-a-war or a roller coaster depending on the day. Surely, you have experienced great days, blah days, and bad days, but it boils down to how you react to those days. We want you to be able to smile through any situation because, as Mary Poppins noted, all it takes is a “spoonful of sugar” to make things better.

The Power of Your Smile

Our orthodontic practice has been bringing out beautiful smiles for a long time, and we know how powerful a genuine smile can be. In fact, did you know that a smile is contagious? A study shows that when the brain recognizes a genuine smile it will attempt to mimic it. Not only that, it activates the reward center in the brain and releases neurotransmitters like serotonin that are known to reduce the risk of depression and other issues.

Some of our patients have come to see an orthodontist in attempts to restore their smiles. These are legitimate reasons why you might be unhappy with the state of your teeth, like an overbite, underbite, misaligned or missing teeth. We have solutions for you. Some of our patients have turned to invisalign, which is a relatively new type of orthodontic corrective device. Invisalign involves two invisible aligners that can be removed whenever you want. People love this option because no one knows they are wearing an orthodontic device.

Of course, you can always just opt for traditional braces if you do not want to worry about losing the aligners. The best thing that you can do is talk to an orthodontist at our Tisseront Orthodontics office to find out what type of braces will work best for you. We are proud to be in the business of helping people gain the smiles of their dreams.
