What are patients saying about Bellaire Family Orthodontics?

By Blog

Check out what a few of our patients are saying about Drs. Wadler and Wadler Bloome and our staff at Bellaire Family Orthodontics lately! Thanks for writing in, everyone!

“Dr. Wadler and Staff #1 I was referred to Dr. Wadler by my sister Tonya Wallace…I was fitted for a retainer and received it the exact same day. The entire staff is very welcoming and friendly. I will send my friends and family to Dr. Wadler if they ever need orthodontic treatment.“

“The Bellaire Family Orthodontics are awesome! They have comfortable appliances and few check-ups and they work! My teeth are getting straighter and I get to earn waddler bucks which I can get prizes with.“‎

“My 2 sons have been monitored for the last two years, waiting to begin treatment. One has had a preliminary bite guard treatment. The entire office is amazing at keeping us very well-cared-for and informed. We love Dr. Wadler and Dr. Wadler Bloome.“

“Dr. Wadler himself came in on a Saturday to help a couple patients (including myself), even though the office is closed on the weekends. He fit me for a retainer that they made for me at the last minute (since I have to leave town for college). Even though I forgot to make an appointment, the receptionist was really friendly and helped squeeze me in their schedule. The staff is very friendly and the office is also very-kid friendly. Highly recommended.“

Would you like to learn more about what to expect during orthodontic treatment, from someone with firsthand experience? Well, our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recently developed the Braces Brigade blog, where past, present, as well as future orthodontic patients from coast to coast document their (or their child’s) orthodontic journeys. The blog will serve as a source of guidance for others as the patients undergo orthodontic care.

Our team encourages you to visit the Braces Brigade blog to read these great and informative blogs—who knows, maybe you’ll learn a thing or two! As always, don’t hesitate to give us a call if you have any questions about the Braces Brigade or your own orthodontic treatment!

Smile, and you might just live longer!

Folks with big smiles may actually live longer than those who don’t, according to a March 2010 study at Michigan’s Wayne State University. We at Bellaire Family Orthodontics has known for quite some time that positive emotion has been linked to both physical and mental health, but researchers at the university did something quite interesting: they looked at photos of 230 ball-players who began their careers in baseball prior to 1950 and studied their smile intensity (ranging from big smile, no smile or partial smile). The players’ smile ratings were compared with data from deaths that occurred from 2006 through 2009. The researchers then took into account other factors that impact life longevity, including body mass index, career length and even college attendance.

The results? Researchers found that players who weren’t smiling in the photos died at the average age of 72.9 years. Players with partial smiles lived to be 75. Those with big smiles, however, lived on average to be 79.9 years old.

The take-away from the new study? Smile now, smile often and you might just live longer! Have you been perfecting your smile by visiting us at Bellaire Family Orthodontics? If not, give us a call!

Cold and Flu Season is Here – Replace Your Toothbrush!

By Blog

Fall is upon us, and with it comes the dreaded cold and flu season. After recovering from your cold, we will tell you one of the most important steps you can take to avoid becoming reinfected is replacing your toothbrush!
tooth_brush_paste
Germs are known to linger on the bristles, and you risk prolonging your sickness by continuing to use the same toothbrush. Be smart – keep a spare, just in case! To protect your toothbrush from bacteria all year long, consider the following tips:

• Wash your hands before and after brushing
• Allow the brush to air dry after each use, harmful bacteria dies after being exposed to oxygen
• Store the toothbrush in an upright position to allow water to drain and dry faster
• Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. Worn bristles are less effective in properly cleaning your teeth, and can actually be damaging to teeth if used too long!

We hope these tips help! Feel free to call us at Bellaire Family Orthodontics if you have any questions or ask us on Facebook.
