Invisalign your teeth with Banning Dental Group

A smile is the surest symbol of joy. It has been rated to showcase the highest positive content and emotional security and is a tell-tale sign that one is content and happy. Every smile is unique to an individual and the situation. Whether it's a wry smile, a flirtatious grin or a hearty laugh, everyone enjoys a natural smile, and everyone looks for reasons for it. A perfect smile, however, may not always be easy to get. You might need some help.

 

If you have struggled with crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth and braces seem like a nightmare to you, you best believe you are up for a beautiful revelation - presenting, Invisalign.

 

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a brand of clear orthodontic aligners that help align and orient teeth. These aligners work as a series of custom-made well-fitted trays that help straighten teeth in as much time as metal braces. Because they are essentially invisible, they are more preferred by teens and young adults as compared to the bulky framework of braces. 

 

Invisalign clear aligners are generally made with specialized hard plastic and in conjunction with 3-D technology making the procedure both painless and non-invasive. The Invisalign digital scan allows you to visualize teeth positions and orientations before the fabrication of the trays. 

How long does it take to straighten the teeth?

Usually taking around 10 to 24 months, if you are an adult who has had braces as a kid, it can take as little as 10 weeks with the invisible aligners. A single Invisalign tray is used for 2 weeks after which another tray may be assigned, continuing the cycle until the teeth are aligned perfectly.

 

An Invisalign aligner should be strictly worn 22 hours a day and should be cleaned periodically.

 

Are you eligible to get Invisalign?

No matter what age you are, as long as your adult teeth are fully grown, you can consider Invisalign as a valid option. This could be for teenagers too. Invisalign is a viable orthodontic treatment option. Whether it is gap teeth, open bites, and crowded teeth or position of a single tooth, Invisalign may be the best option.

 

In cases where your dental problems are severe, you may require other type braces to align your teeth. 

 

Why choose Banning Dental?

Banning Dental Group specializes in Invisalign and braces using the most advanced digital technology and equipment aiming always to provide the

most comprehensive and current treatment to their patients. 

 

All orthodontic treatment is with the supervision of orthodontic specialists in their practices. This gives you the assurance that you receive the best treatment and most affordable treatment to straighten your teeth. 

 

How is Invisalign superior to traditional braces?

Invisalign clear aligners come with a wide range of benefits that win the orthodontic conquest against traditional metal braces.

 

  • Aesthetics: Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and give better visual regard to onlookers as compared to metal braces. Who would want to land up with a mouth full of metal when you can have a great-looking set of pearly whites?

 

  • The comfort of wear: Since these Invisalign aligners are made up of plastic, nicks and cuts caused by the traditional metal wires and brackets of braces can be avoided.

 

  • Convenience for removal: The biggest drawback of metal braces comes with its inability to be removable. Invisalign aligners are more relaxed with the duration of wear and can be removed every time you want to eat.

 

  • Faster results: Invisalign aligners have been recorded to work faster than braces in straightening teeth and arranging them in great alignment.

 

  • Predictability: Working with advanced technology, clear aligners straighten teeth more predictably and comfortably. You can see the end result on the digitized image to get an idea of what your teeth would look like after the treatment. 

 

Are all aligners the same?

Now, you may have heard also of discount mail-order aligners. While those can straighten partially your teeth, they may worsen your bite and damage your gums and the supporting bone leaving you without legal recourse. Clear aligners aren’t “a fix-all treatment” by themselves. To ensure a properly aligned and safe bite, it takes a skilled orthodontist who knows what to advise you and how to use them therefore correctly and can use the aligners in combination with advanced tools and specific techniques to give you not only a brighter smile and but also a better bite.

Yield the welfare of Invisalign clear aligners and make your everyday filled with smiles and waves of laughter. As a clear-cut and outstanding alternative to conventional braces, Invisalign aligners are really revolutionary wonders for misaligned teeth!

Using laundrylicious.com we even need to call anyone. It is a easy as booking online and everything else will be done for you! How did you come up with this idea?

Exclusive interview with Kai Michaels Fly Secrets brand creator. Fly to the sky!

Fly Secrets is more than a brand, it’s a way of thinking. Successful people have no limits in goals setting. We all look to the sky! Fly Secrets hopes to inspire anyone who wears or sees these clothing to have an uplifting day and believe that anything is possible!

We interviewed Kai Michaels to get to know all the secrets of Fly Secrets.

CP: Hi Kai, thank you for accepting the invitation! How are you feeling these days? It’s a brand new world we are facing.
KM: “Hello, thank you for having me here today. Yes, it is a brand new world. No, I cannot complain. Things are moving slowly, but they are moving.”
CP: We love the idea and mindset of Fly Secrets. It tells that everything is possible when you put your mind to it! And it is a great help in the pandemic nowadays not to give up! How did you come up with the idea for your brand?
KM: “I just happened to be in my car one day. I picked up my sketchbook, and started drawing the pilot character. I thought, “I can create a whole universe for him”. At first, it was just for my eyes. When others starting noticing my art. The characters took a life of its own. People really seemed to enjoy the concept living life above. Which is the basic concept of Fly Secrets.”


CP: The clothing of Fly Secrets are not only original, but also comfortable and cozy. Was this the idea behind the design?
KM: “Yes. From the very start, all of my designs have been hand-drawn. I usually keep a sketchbook. At least one or two with me all the time. Just in case inspiration hits. As far as the clothing itself goes, the moment that I found a specific material that I liked. I put out an example of a few friends and others to receive feedback on the material. I got great results for one, and I stuck with it”
CP: You have not only the clothing, but also phone cases, basically things that are highly visible in everyday life. Do you plan to extend the accessory line?
KM: “Yes. Very much so. The accessories will be extended to, but not limited to stickers, posters, hats, socks, and backpacks. The sky’s the limit!”
CP: How long did it take you from the idea to having the full line of products?
KM: “Honestly, everything came slowly. Started from sketching to locating a printing service, getting orders put in for samples. Once those samples came back and posting pictures on social media to get feedback, then I would sit in Photoshop to produce mock-up. So I could see what they would look like virtually.”
CP: How long does the production process take?
KM: “It usually takes a week to a week in a half.”CP: Nowadays it’s been tough times for everyone. What is your secret not to give up and stay in positive mood?KM: “Yes, it has been a tough time. Honestly, I have been building relationships lately, and the people that I have been in contact with have been giving me great feedback. The positivity is what keeps me going.”
CP: What is your biggest dream right now?
KM: “To spread the message of Fly Secrets across the globe. I would like to open my own stores, and give a platform for up and coming artists and fashion designers as well.”
CP: What is your motivational quote of the day?
KM: “Our minds are a limitation, but we all have wings to fly. All you have to do is believe”
CP: Thank you so much, Kai, for making us Fly to the Sky today.

Christine Reidhead On Success Of Her Book, Covid-19 Situation And Nonprofit AfrikRising

Educator, Podcaster, and Humanitarian, Christine Reidhead, is an Assistant Professor and the Founder and CEO of the Nonprofit Organization, AfrikRising. We asked Christine to comment on the current situation about COVID-19 on the Navajo Nation.  And, took a chance to talk about a few exciting happenings, like her, #1 Best Seller, "GET THAT JOB!”, her recent award, 10 Best CEOs to Watch 2020, podcasting and much more in our exclusive interview. 

CP: Hi Christine, you live in the heart of the Navajo Nation, with the COVID-19 outbreak, where it is the highest affected area per capita. How are you coping with these challenges?
CR: We have 500 people that have tested positive for the coronavirus, in our small town of Crownpoint, NM, so its pretty scary. Im just trying to stay home as much as possible. I love to work, so Ill work just as hard at home as I would at work. Many of my students have had family members who have died from this coronavirus. Its really sad. We are losing some good, good people.

 

CP: Oh, that sounds pretty tough! Are there enough medical supplies at the hospitals? I hope everyone can get proper assistance.

CR: They are working on it. Hopefully, as time passes, the State of New Mexico and the Navajo Tribe, get more assistance from the federal government. There are not a lot of hospitals in and around the Navajo Nation, so that is a challenge. But the Navajo people are resilient and they will overcome this challenge facing their people. I couldnt be more proud to have the opportunity to live and learn more about their tradition and culture. They are a misunderstood people and I wish they would get more respect.

CP: You and your sons made masks for the people on the Navajo Nation. As you mentioned, this area has really been hit by the coronavirus. Tell us a little more about that experience.

CR: As COVID-19 began spreading on the Navajo Nation, it got me very worried about the people, especially the elders. Nationally, the masks were sold out in stores. It got me thinking, and guess who I thought of? My mother!  My mother is a quilter, so she donated a lot of fabric to allow us to sew these masks. We ended up making over 500 masks to give away. It was challenging, but a great experience.


CP: We cant but mention you being one of the 10 Best CEOs to Watch 2020! Wow! Can you tell us a little bit about that accomplishment?

CR: Yes, it was a great honor to be one of the 10 Best CEOs to Watch in 2020. As for the non-profit, I feel blessed to be a part of AfrikRising. We are simply out there trying to help lift the burdens of others. There is always someone out there who is struggling, and can be helped. Thats what life is all about, serving and thats what we do at AfrikRising. We cant reach everyone, but we try to do the best we can.

CP: Your nonprofit, AfrikRising, is really doing some good things in Africa, especially during the coronavirus pandemic! Can you tell us about your recent projects youve completed?

CR: We just completed Project Face Mask. On our AfrikRising Board, we have a fashion designer, Emmanuel Aluka. He made 150 masks that were taken to a hospital and police station in Lagos, Nigeria. He said when he was handing out the masks, he got mauled by people that were so excited! These COVID-19 times are scary, and we need to make sure we are thinking about those who are affected by this virus no matter where they live.

 

CP: It is so admirable, that in this difficult time you remember those who are even more in need. How many volunteers are working with you? Is there a place for newcomers to join?

CR: AfrikRising currently has nine Board members. We are grateful to have many generous people who consistently donate to each of our projects as we couldnt accomplish the projects without them! We are very fortunate to have good teams in both Nigeria and Ghana. The teams help us find those who are in the most need. We are always looking for those who want to give back. Volunteers and newcomers can contact us at our website: www.afrikrising.org. Wed love to have anyone and everyone join us in helping fight hunger and poverty in Africa!

 

CP: You have published a #1 Best Seller on Amazon! Congratulations! These books are really helping college students gain the foundation they need to succeed. Do you have a second book in the works?
CR: I do have a second book coming out soon! My book should be published here in the next month or so. This second book is about study habits. A lot of times students have not developed good study habits before college. This book helps you learn the best way to study and how to apply those methods. I think the book is a great guide to help college students become successful in their studies.

 

CP: Your books are a part of a series. What can we expect for future topics?
CR: When you leave your parents’ house you usually are overconfident and think you know everything, right? Then, reality hits you and youre not as prepared as you thought you were. This college book series provides tips to help tackle that steep learning curve. Other forthcoming books will be about, how to manage your finances, how to choose the right career, common freshman mistakes, developing a resume, etc. And, after reading these books, I’m hoping all the tools will provide a solid foundation for students. This is a critical time in students’ lives and grasping this knowledge is important to help lead and guide them to success.

 

CP: You are involved in so many things! How did you get such an extreme work ethic? What drives that success?
CR: I have to credit my work ethic to my step-dad, Leland. He pushed so much work on my siblings and I during my years in high school. I hated it. I mean, who likes working as a teenager? But, now I am so grateful for what Leland’s method of teaching lessons of life entailed. As a teenager, you don’t realize the continuous work ethic push as important life Iessons, until later in adulthood. To this day, I have that same drive flowing through my veins. Its what gets me up early in the morning and keeps me up late at night. My step-dad is now in his 70s and still works 12 plus hours a day, six days a week, its incredible. He planted that seed of service within me. Looking back, I remember that we would help out people, no matter what time of the day or night it was. Whether it was helping people who were stranded or taking truckloads of food down to Mexico, we would find some way to help others. Leland certainly provided me with a great example of success and service. I am very grateful for that. I love working and will constantly challenge myself to push a little harder and attempt to accomplish more today than I did yesterday.

 

CP: This is so true! You are such an inspiration for many women in the world. We are proud to have you as a cover story for “Eurowoman”. What is your secret to keep being so energetic?

CR: Just my drive for success. Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant always talked about things that motivated them. I do the same. Whether it is success or criticism, I take motivation from either one, and strive to work harder and be better.

CP: Your Tribal College Movement podcast has been published by the Tribal College Journal! One of the most important educational journals in the country. Can you tell us more about that podcast series?
CR: This is a great example of pushing oneself to learning something new and learning about people that make a difference in other peoples’ lives. This podcast was a great privilege to do with Tom Davis. He is one of the founding fathers of the Tribal College Movement and has been a mentor to me for the past 10 years or so. Hes an incredible man and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. This podcast shares stories about the tribal college movement that happened over 50 years ago. There is some rich history in these podcasts and Im very proud to be able to capture that richness with Tom.

CP: It’s amazing! You find time for everything, and it is so inspirational to listen to you! What is your motivational quote of the day? 
CR: “Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you havent planted. David Bly

CP: Thank you so much for finding time to talk to us in this uneasy situation. We truly hope the world is becoming better! And, it is important to stay motivated and keep going, exactly like you do!

The Atlanta Book Hit-Maker strikes again!

Jesus, Coffee, and Prayer Christian Publishing House LLC. is blazing the trail for Women of Faith to exponentially SOAR in this season. With a host of Future Best-Selling books lining up, multiple Virtual Women’s Empowerment events all throughout May and early June, Cosmo was finally able to catch up with the ‘Publisher of Purpose’- CEO and Founder, Min. Nakita Davis!

CP: Min. Nakita Davis, Welcome and thank you for agreeing to meet with us. Lets hop right into it!

The world has made many shifts in the past few months. Tell our viewers how your Best-Selling publishing house is effortlessly able to shift and elevate during this pandemic?

Min. Nakita Davis: Well first of all, All the Glory belongs to God.  He is the source of my life and my strength. I am honored to be interviewed on your prestigious platform!  Secondly, I tell my Queen Authors and co-authors all the time, ‘You don’t have to get Ready- if you Stay Ready.’  Although this has been a shift that many of us have not seen, God still reigns, and the bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. So, I say all of that to say, my team and I have continuously used all our innate gifts and talents to successfully pivot in this season. 

We were already publishing International Best-Selling books and we were already developing authors to level up by sharing their message on larger scales. But we pivoted by adding more Virtual opportunities to connect with Women of Faith.  In the past month or so, we have hosted 3 to 4 Successful Virtual events. The Women Win Author & Business Summit was held in March and received great featured coverage on CBS news 19, NBC affiliates, and many more. Attendees were BLOWN Away by the wealth of knowledge and expertise that our Keynote speakers brought to the table and were ready to SOAR after our 2-day event. Next, Jesus, Coffee, and Prayer hosted our Write It. Speak It. Live It Masterclass and our highly acclaimed Learn & Earn $1,000+ Hosting Your Own Virtual Summit Masterclass- both in April!

The women enjoyed our event so much, that we are kicking off our highly valuable~ wildly profitable Virtual SPEAKER Society Membership May 8th! We still have just a few spots left for Women of Faith who are ready to take their gifts, talents, book, or business, and leverage it on a Virtual Stage that Pays again, and again, and again! The goal is simple, teach Women how to fish in this season by hosting their OWN wildly profitable Virtual Events! 

Lastly, our Devo & Glow Camp is kicking off June 8th as a response to Covid-19. Its an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G bootcamp designed to help Women of Faith share their message through a Best-Selling Devotional book in 90days or less. Open enrollment ends June 1st. 

CP: Wow- You seriously have a lot going on! I imagine that you are balancing all of this and your family life. How do you keep your sanity?

Min. Nakita Davis- (Laughs) Great Question- I don’t! (laughs again.) No seriously, I give it to God.  I do the best that I can to meet the commitments, deadlines, and results that I’ve communicated to my clients & authors alike. Regarding quarantine home life- I laugh- a lot and Smile more than I frown. Look, life is hard- it was never promised to be easy- just worth it. I also recognize that I can’t do it alone. My husband is absolutely amazing and covers me in the tight spaces. Throw in 2 Great kiddos and we always make it work with the help of Christ. 

CP: Great advice- do what you can! So, talk to our readers about your upcoming event. We caught wind through the grapevine that there is another Women Win Author & Business Summit in the works.

Min. Nakita Davis: YESSSS! Gotta love social media and the press. But yes, we are working diligently to bring our guest, BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER in this season. We have expanded the event to 5 blissful virtual days and have included Top international leaders and Stellar Award-Winning Vocalists to our mix. We did not come to play! If attendees enjoyed our debut Women Win Author & Business Virtual summit back in March- then they are going to go through the roof when they see what we have lined up at the end of May! This 5-day Epic International Virtual event will kick off Saturday, May 30th – Wednesday June 3rd.  Queens should follow us to get open registration dates @jesuscoffeeandprayer on FB & on IG.

They Do Not want to miss this! 

We still have just a few spots remaining for Powerhouse Speakers, Women of Influence and business expertise- but they must hurry if they want to join our esteemed panel of Glow-getters of Faith!

 

CP: I know your time is valuable and you are woman on the Go! So just a few more questions. As a best-Selling publisher with all your success. What advice would you give to someone wanting to write their book now- with all the uncertainty?

 

Min. Nakita Davis: It’s really simple- Just Do IT! Let Go of Your Fear and inhibitions. Let Go and Let God! Somebody needs to hear your voice. Somebody needs to grow from you. Somebody needs your testimony and triumph story. You are the KEY to Breaking Generational Curses- but YOU HAVE To MOVE! If you need help- reach out to us at www.jesuscoffeeandprayer.com Book your consultation and lets begin a beautiful partnership that will get you moving form A to Z! With 27+ Best-Selling authors in just 10 short months~ we are anointed and appointed for this THANG!  Let us help you produce your Best-Selling Book and leverage it to step on stage and GET PAID too!

 

CP: Well there you have it folks! Get with Min. Nakita Davis over at Jesus Coffee and Prayer Christian Publishing House LLC. for All your publishing/ author marketing and strategy needs. Based off your reviews on Facebook and other sources, I can see why they call you the ‘Publisher of Purpose!’

Min. Nakita Davis: Indeed, Indeed- to God be the GLORY!
