Less pain, more gain: Digital scanning lets orthodontists use smaller braces ...

Of all the fun things that 11-year-old Meredith Engle wanted to do last summer, getting braces was not on the list.

“I was a little bit scared because my friends had told me that getting braces hurts a little bit,” said the Carroll Township sixth grader who got braces last August to correct crowding of her bottom teeth and a slight overbite.

While the procedure itself didn't hurt, the pain set in soon after and her gums hurt for several days. Eating felt “really strange” and she was afraid to try anything too hard or too sticky.

Her parents feared meal times would never end because she ate so slowly and bedtime was affected when the nightly routine to floss and clean her braces took her a half hour.

However, all those memories have faded now and Meredith declares, “It’s not as bad as you think it’s going to be. Once you get used to it, it’s really OK.”

Digital orthodontics means better treatment

New Generation of Smiles Coming to Charlotte

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) March 15, 2014

Blakeney will have something new to smile about. A new State-of-the-art Orthodontic facility is opening in South Charlotte.

Orthodontist Dr. Chad Johnson of Chad Johnson Orthodontics recently announced that his new cutting edge practice will be opening in Blakeney Professional Park by May 2014.

The facility will not only have you or your children’s healthy teeth in mind but it will also be environmentally friendly. An ecologically conscious orthodontic office that accommodates thoughtful, thorough, and comprehensive orthodontic care.

The new office will feature a new iCat Flex x-ray machine. It captures precisely accurate 3D views with very controlled yet minimal exposure. This fully digital office enables the practice to use significantly less paper and be able to communicate with patients as well as other dental professional extremely proficiently.

Many materials, such as low VOC paint and recycled materials in flooring and glass, add to the environmentally friendly office Dr. Johnson has envisioned.

Plastic on my Invisalign braces is cutting my tongue, what can I do?

The plastic inside edge towards the back of the lower aligners is bothering my tongue really badly. This is my second day, and it's painful to talk or eat, not because of my teeth, but because of my tongue. Is there something I can do, or will it go away?

Either polish it off yourself or go to your orthodontist right away to get it checked out

i dont know xactly what to do but u should tell ur parents <diurin poisoning causes cancer>

i have just had invisalign 1st set and on day 2 my tongue above and lower are cut ?

I, myself, had "traditional" braces, but one of my brothers had invisalign (lucky him). He also had the same problem that you've been having. What he did was call his orthodontist, explain the problem, and he was asked to stop in so that the
