The Good and Bad About Invisible Braces

The invisible brace is touted as a revolutionary device that replaces metal braces in terms of fixing misaligned teeth. Its popularity comes from the fact that it is "invisible." You wear it on your teeth as you would wear a glove on your hand. It will then act similarly to a dental brace: moving your teeth into a straighter position, giving you a better-looking smile.

But why has the traditional metal brace not gone obsolete? The answer is simple. As with everything else, nothing is perfect. Not even these invisible braces. There are pros and cons of invisible braces.

Pros

As mentioned above, invisible braces are popular because they're invisible. Most people often don't like getting braces because they look hideous all throughout the treatment; completely disregarding the great reward if they wait. With invisible braces, nobody really notices that you're wearing them unless they really look at your teeth or if sunlight reflects on the brace.

Another good thing about invisible braces is that it is removable. You will be able to take them off during meals and put them back on after brushing. This is in sharp contrast to having metal braces where you have to think twice before eating something that may get stuck on the wires.

Also, if you accidentally eat while wearing an invisible brace and a morsel gets caught in the brace, you can remove it for cleaning.



Finally, invisible braces give you a preview of what you'd look like after treatment is done. For instance, you have overlapping teeth. When wearing the brace, you'll noticeably have straighter teeth. Simply put, your smile while wearing the brace is what your smile will be once you're done with it.



Cons

The first and more popular disadvantage of invisible braces is the fact that it is costlier than metal braces. The braces will be molded and based off of your teeth, so no two braces are similar. However, if you can find the right dentist, you may get these invisible braces for cheap.



The second con of invisible braces is that treatment takes longer than metal braces. Basically, since metal braces are a lot more uncomfortable, you're trading discomfort for a longer treatment time if you get invisible ones.

Finally, invisible braces aren't for everyone. While adults will have no problems with invisible braces, metal braces are still preferred for teens. Of course there are invisible braces for teens, but they aren't as effect as they are on adults for some reason.



Also, they are not for those who have a habit or breaking routine. If you get invisible braces but are getting a little too liberal with removing them, you will either never get the results you need or will have to wear them for a longer duration.



It's best to understand the pros and cons of invisible braces as to not be surprised with how long you have to wear them or how your smile looks really fake when hit with a light source at a certain angle. Most of all, talk to your dentist and seek advice on how to get one.

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

Using Free Online Backup Services to Enhance Team Efficiency

Getting a team to work collaboratively in today’s technological environment can be challenging. The days when a marketing group sat around a table drawing out steps in a campaign are gone; today, we make our contributions digitally. In some ways, that makes things much more flexible, but at times it can mean an efficiency hit.

The virtual conference room

Accordingly, we’ve found ways to get everyone together in a virtual environment. We use video conferencing software to exchange words and visual ideas in real-time. We use email to move data back and forth.

Unfortunately, this becomes inefficient and bulky at times. Think about the life cycle of a single document, perhaps a departmental procedure. It starts out on the computer of the person creating it. From there, it’s sent as an attachment to the manager. The manager makes changes, and then sends it out to the entire team (of let’s say five members) for comments or additional ideas. At that point, there are now seven iterations of th…
