Crooked Teeth – See an Orthodontist

When I was a teenager I had braces (upper teeth only) yet my dentist told me that he “spaced out my teeth” so that I could one day get veneers in order to not have gapped teeth. My bottom teeth, still a bit crooked, weren’t worked on at all. And given I wasn’t satisfied with my upper teeth’s result, and I was just lazy like many teens, I failed to wear my retainer.orthodontics - braces - invisalign

It turns out I’m a classic case for Invisalign. Most of their patients are adults who “forgot” to wear their retainers and have messed up teeth as a result, but not quite as messed up as they were before they had braces to begin with.

My dentist tried to give me a sales pitch on Invisalign and as soon as she got to the price tag ($6000, not covered by insurance) I wasn’t that interested. Plus, aren’t orthodontists supposed to do this sort of thing? Even though my dentist assured me that she was well qualified to move my teeth around, I wanted at least a second opinion.

I found a really good online deal (but not one that was scarily low cost like some of the ones I had seen in the $2500-$3000 range) at an actual orthodontist office nearby. So I went in for a consultation and they told me that treatment would be about 18 months give or take. Even though the office wasn’t 100% to my tastes (it is literally an open room with lots of dentist chairs which were at the time filled with squirming pre-teens) and the orthodontist seemed a bit rushed, I just had this gut decision to go for it. Aftertall, both dentist and orthodontist told me I have this god awful overbite which needs to be fixed for my own dental health. THIS IS A HEALTH ISSUE PEOPLE (I’m not superficial-at-all-whatsoever-and-I-am-also-a-big-fat-liar.)

So I signed the paperwork then and there and was brought into another room to have my face scanned. That part was easy. The good part about going to a fancy platinum provider ortho who basically is a direct rep of Invisalign (with their offices not to far away) is that they have all the fancy technology to make the process simpler. That meant instead of having to sit with goopey molds in my mouth I just got the quick scan and within minutes I was done.clear or metal braces - orthodontists

After leaving the office (Los Altos Orthodontics) I had a moment of panic — WHAT HAVE I DONEEEEE — but then I relaxed and told myself that other than completely destroying my mouth and wasting thousands of dollars it can’t be that bad, right? And if all works out I could have straight teeth in time for my wedding. So long gaps.

It takes a few weeks for your first “trays” to come back when the scans are taken. Mine showed up in 3-4 weeks. I’ll write about my first appointment in my next post. Oooh, the suspense. more information on this website

Texas Motor Cycle Accident Lawyers

No matter how you slice it, riding a motorcycle always poses a greater risk than driving in a car. This may not be what motorcycle enthusiasts want to believe but these are just the facts based on real statistics. However, this does not mean that people who are injured in motorcycle accidents are any less entitled to compensation as any other motorists. In fact, at least 5 in 10 motorcycle accidents are caused by another driver and not by the rider him/herself. motorcycle accidents attorneys
If you or someone you care for has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver then you or your loved one may be entitled to compensation for damages, not only for medical bills but also for pain and suffering, loss of wages and possibly even punitive damages. For example, if the motorcycle accident was caused by a drunk driver then not only can you file a claim but there will also more than likely be criminal charges filed against that driver.
The best thing to do is gather as many facts as possible at the time of the accident. If it is at all possible take photographs of the accident scene. Document witness names and telephone numbers, this may come in handy in the future. If the police report does not specify which driver was at fault and the matter is unclear, an attorney can help you file your claim and prove which party was actually responsible for the accident. This is where your witness list will come in handy, as well.motorcyle accident injury Lawyers
