It’s time to start spreading the holiday cheer! We love having you as part of our orthodontic family at Sunshine Orthodontics, and we want to send holiday smiles to all of our patients and their families with a couple of poems for the season! Happy Holidays to everyone!
The Night Before Christmas (with my braces)
Twas the night before Christmas, Santa flying all places
Delivering presents to children with braces.
There’s lights on the tree and a wreath on the door
I’m merry as can be when my teeth are not sore!
For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment. But for Dr. Ahmed Mansour, the correct function of your bite is far more important. A malocclusion, or bad bite, can cause serious problems over a lifetime if left untreated. Loss of tooth structure, TMJ problems and even bone loss can occur if a malocclusion is not corrected before permanent damage occurs.
An orthodontist completes several years of extensive training beyond dental school to become an expert at correcting jaw problems and straightening teeth. A dentist may see only a handful of cases a year amid all their drilling and filling. An orthodontist only practices orthodontics and treats hundreds of cases a year. An orthodontist doesn’t clean teeth, fill cavities, extract teeth or perform any of the routine procedures offered by your general dentist. It is not our area of expertise. So be sure to see your dentist every six months for cleaning and checkups while wearing braces. (more…)
