Unbrace Your Confidence: Do Something in NYC

News flash!! The teen years can be a daunting time for adolescents- especially when it comes to facing potential damage of their self-esteem and confidence. Best known as “the awkward years” for obvious reasons, teens begin to feel more and more insecure about their overall appearance as they navigate through the unforgiving halls of high school.

When it comes to smiling, often the most attracting aspect of one’s face, many teens don’t want to follow the most common path to fix their teeth – metal braces. Teens fear not only the physical pain, but the emotional hurt that wearing brackets may bring. Their concerns are valid, as teens who have donned braces were teased and struggled far more than those who wore Invisalign. Our upcoming initiatives and next steps forward is guaranteed to propose more smiles among our happy teens.

DoSomething.org “makes the world suck less. One of the largest global orgs for young people and social change, our 3.8 million members tackle campaigns that impact every cause, from poverty to violence to the environment to literally everything else. Any cause, anytime, anywhere.”

Dr. Jacquie Smiles joined Cody Simpson and a slew of other celebrities at a dinner for DoSomething.org in New York City on Thursday, June 11th 2015.Cody Simpson was helping to promote the organization–using connections in Hollywood circles to raise both funds and awareness for Do Something’s Unbrace Teen Confidence.

The makers of Invisalign Teen Clear Aligners have teamed up with parenting expert and author, Erika Katz, to create “Unbrace Teen Confidence.” This “teen-esteem” campaign is geared towards helping parents to better understand the stress their teens face on a daily basis. After all, memories fade and it has been quite some time since parental units can truly relate to the struggle – especially with contemporary circumstances and modern social conditions sabotaging a parent’s efforts. Recently, a survey was conducted to understand the psyche and perspective of teens compared to their parents- representing most adults. By applying insights from the survey to real life scenarios, the hope was to analyze the difference in hormonal and physical activity in order to recognize the distinctions that occurred between the two. The Invisalign Teen Confidence Survey was aimed to improve the communication between parent and teens as they work towards building better confidence.

There is tremendous pressure for teens to look flawless the way their photo-shopped peers and favorite celebrities do. They are at an age where they naturally feel inadequate when comparing themselves to others. Celebrity orthodontist, Dr. Jacquie Smiles, along with the highly established, Do Something Organization has teamed up for a modern approach with Invisalign Teen, to help teens battle their insecurities. The clear aligners used with Invisalign Teen help straighten your child’s teeth without the nuisance and embarrassment of traditional metal, wires and brackets, leaving your child feeling confident in their day to day activities and interactions with others. Smiling is good for you as a teenager. Why not wear it with confidence?

Getting Noticed In White in NYC & NJ

How Lucky? 

Lucky Mag is the ultimate drawing board for fashionistas alike! We are happy and proud to have been apart of their “How To Wear White: Summer Edition”

“Summer represents another opportunity for a clean slate and a fresh start- especially when it comes to updating your style and your wardrobe. Therefore, MDW marks the official kick-off for the LWD (Little White Dress for those of you less than fabulous fashionistas out there)!

-And nothing says clean and fresh like a perfect fitting white dress.

Light and airy fabrics are key to pulling off this look, but often times also extremely unforgiving. It is really important to create the right balance between structure and femininity. Every summer goddess wants to make sure all of the elements come together in order to turn heads on the sands or show stop in the streets!

Although you can carry this look from day to night, accessories and other features are what truly drive the white dresses appeal. From beach cover-ups, to BBQ sundresses, or even those dreaded white pants we all keep buried in our closets at our vain attempt to dream, we must always make sure our body and skin is wearable for white!”

Teeth

When you are wearing white this draws attention to other aspects of your appearance- like a less than stellar smile! A superior smile is often the best accessory for any white outfit. The purity of the dress against your luminous skin will reflect poorly if your teeth do not match as close to the white as possible. At-home whitening kits are an essential must have to increase the brightness and shine of your pearly whites!

Welcome Acceledent Aura in NYC/NJ

AcceleDent®Aura with SoftPulse Technology® releases a safe and effective light force pulse that transmits through the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. This helps accelerate the cellular response and speeds the rate with which your teeth can move. When used in conjunction with orthodontics, AcceleDent®Aura has been clinically proven to move teeth up to 50% faster.

How It works

AcceleDent® works by inserting a special mouthpiece with the pulse activator for 20 minutes a day. Acceledent® uses gentle micropulses, called SoftPulse Technology® along with your existing braces which enables rapid tooth movement and decreases the duration of your orthodontic treatment. This patented technology will very gently vibrate making it so that your teeth can easily and smoothly shift into their correct position.

Using AcceleDent®

AcceleDent® is simple & easy to use.

  • Simply press the removable mouthpiece into the activator
  • Bite down firmly enough to hold the device in place and turn it on
  • Relax while you watch TV, read a book or listen to music during the required 20 minutes to use AcceleDent® to function effectively.

Device Description Break Down

AcceleDent® Aura, developed by OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc. (“OrthoAccel”), consists of a mouthpiece and activator assembly that provides a light vibration to the teeth, as well as a travel case for ease of carrying the mouthpiece and activator.  Combined with your doctor’s diagnosis and prescription for orthodontic care, AcceleDent® Aura helps your current orthodontic treatment work faster. It does this by generating small vibrations called micropulses to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they are guided by your orthodontics.

Procedure

Patients will undergo a thorough examination that includes x-rays and images. Your orthodontist will take impressions of your teeth to determine a customized treatment plan. When the patient feels comfortable and ready to move forward with the proper orthodontic care, AcceleDent® Aura will be provided to assist and ensure the acceleration process begins. Your orthodontic expert will schedule personalized follow-up visits to assess your progress. There is no established amount of set visits as this will vary depending on treatment from patient to patient.

For optimal results, Acceledent® Aura is typically used once daily for the full allotted time of 20 minutes unless otherwise instructed by your orthodontist. The success of your smile is right around the corner!

The Benefits of Acceledent® Aura

Numerous studies have demonstrated AcceleDent® Aura’s benefits in safely speeding up tooth movement. When used as directed in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, it offers benefits including:

 

  • Offers an enhancement to conventional braces that accelerates your orthodontic treatment
  • Does not interfere or affect routine brushing and flossing tasks
  • May be added to the standard orthodontic treatment your orthodontist prescribes; it does not have to be used with a specific treatment
  • Known to improve oral hygiene habits during treatment since it is used daily
  • Faster tooth movement without sacrificing aesthetics
  • Can be used with both teen and adult patients
  • Can reduce your orthodontic treatment time up to 50%
  • It is lightweight and comfortable
  • Hands-free design allows you the freedom to read, watch TV or complete work

 

Ideal AcceleDent® Aura Candidates Include:

  • Someone who is interested in quickly obtaining the aesthetic, functional and health-related benefits of orthodontic care
  • Someone undergoing or preparing to undergo orthodontic treatment and are seeking a shorter treatment time span.
  • A consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles is required for anyone who is considering Acceledent® Aura

 

With this new technology, Dr. Jacquie Smiles can provide orthodontic treatment options for correcting and straightening teeth much quicker than ever before!

 

 

 

 

Safe and Gentle

AcceleDent® Aura is cleared by the FDA and has been demonstrated safe and reliable in U.S. clinical trials. AcceleDent® Aura’s vibration is a reasonable and safe approach for accelerating tooth movement. In fact, the force applied to teeth during ordinary chewing is at least 200x greater than the force applied with AcceleDent® Aura (5000g chewing vs. 25g AcceleDent® Aura).

Also, many orthodontists and patients have reported that AcceleDent® Aura reduces discomfort associated with tooth movement from orthodontic treatment.
