Well, we are well over a month into the new year, and it’s time to check in on how well we are adhering to our New Year’s resolutions.   Most resolutions are based on change, a fresh start, a new beginning, and a new you.  Brainstorming ways to make changes to better ourselves for the new year is a very typical road we start down when we make our resolutions.  When you think about setting a resolution, do you think about your smile?  Taking care of our teeth should fall under the “New Year, New You” resolution.  Your smile says a lot about who you are.   If you are not 100% confident with your teeth, more than likely you are not going to have a big smile.  Sometimes lack of confidence will result in a closed-mouth smile.   It is time to stop hiding your smile because of your teeth.

Are you ready for a change that will last longer than a month?   Are you ready for a change that will impact your health, your confidence and improve your appearance?   This change starts with your smile!  Dr.Hahn and Dr.Driscoll have improved many patient smiles with Invisalign.  Invisalign will straighten your teeth, improve your smile and give you confidence.  Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces and is a great investment.

Did anyone make goals for weight loss this year? You wouldn’t normally think about how your teeth play in to weight loss goals, but we have many patients who have reported to us that wearing aligners cuts down on snacking and grazing, thus improving dietary habits. The aligners must be removed in order to eat, so meals must be thoughtfully timed and planned. This makes it tough just to grab a snack here and there.  We all know that those unplanned, quick bites are usually the sugary treats that we should not be eating in the first place.   Some patients who had bad grazing habits are losing a few pounds with Invisalign.  Since you have to brush after you put anything in your mouth including colored drinks, it makes you second-guess if that snack is worth the brushing.
