Care for your teeth! Have you ever been frustrated opening a bottle, container, prying open a lid, or ripping open a package with your hands? Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC-TV’s popular “Tonight Show” tried prying open a tube of scar tissue repair gel with disastrous results.
For the 40 year old comedian, what happened next wasn’t funny: when trying to open the gel, Fallon chipped his front tooth, on top of another medical problem, a serious finger injury he suffered a few weeks resulting in trying to open the scar cream. Moral of the Story… Always use the right tool for the job… and your teeth are never the right tool! .Read More

Orthodontic Treatment…not just for kids anymore. Years ago when people thought about orthodontic braces they pictured a pre-teen or a teen ager with a mouth full of metal. But times have certainly changed. Today, orthodontic treatment is not just for kids any more. People of any age group can now have the smile they have always wanted and deserved.
Adults all over the world are more conscious today about their appearance and their smile is one of the first features that other people notice. According to an Invisalign survey, 74 % of American women and men believe that an attractive smile is important for getting their dream job, while 84 % feel it is critical for their love lives.

What does Thanksgiving mean in your home? Our team here at Total Orthodontics realizes Thanksgiving can hold many meanings to many people. To us however Thanksgiving means being grateful and expressing gratitude for all the wonderful patients and families we have the opportunity and privilege to serve.
To most, Thanksgiving means a literal feast of turkey, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. It also brings with it a sense of togetherness and family. Sometimes Thanksgiving is the only holiday where we can spend time with family members who live far away. And, to others, the holiday means football and naps.Read More
