Words of Wisdom No.8: “Practice Flossing with Your Eyes Shut“
Keeping Tooth Decay and Cavities Away
The key to a gorgeous, natural, healthy smile begins with a thin string about 18 inches long. It’s floss and plays a major role in maintaining excellent oral health.
Seriously, if you’re not flossing, then keeping even the straightest, whitest teeth on the planet in good shape won’t serve you well. Flossing should become part of your routine, because it removes food or plaque left in between your teeth.
Even Celebrities Have Teeth Challenges
As adults, we often figure that our smile is strictly due to genetics, unlike those lucky Hollywood stars. Celebrities, however, are just like you and me. They are not always born with perfect smiles, but they realize the value in great-looking, straight, healthy teeth.
Creating a beautiful smile does not have an age limit, thankfully. As women get older, our teeth can naturally shift, as we lose bone. There are normal changes in our jaws, and teeth are not as straight as they once were. Our teeth can start to overlap, spread apart, move inward, etc.
Re-Alignment Without Silver Showing
These changes can make women feel self-conscious about their smiles. There is a wonderful way to remedy the problem, and unattractive, old-fashioned metal braces aren’t involved. A skilled orthodontist can detect through a quick exam, if you’re a good candidate for the Invisalign system.
Clear braces are the choice of many celebrities, because they are barely noticeable, even up close and personal on the red carpet. These plastic aligners don’t interfere with a woman’s beauty. Instead, they straighten teeth much faster than the traditional metal type. Invisalign is comfortable and allows you to remove them as you eat any kind of food.
