Expose on Bailey Orthodontics

Let me preface, Dr. Bailey is unaware I'm writing this blog article. Controlling content is one of those accessing privileges you get when you're in marketing and are in charge of platforms and possess all the necessary passwords. Therefore, at times I take liberties and either get the "thatta girl!!" pat on the back or I'm reluctantly asking for forgiveness with my head hung at the altar of his desk. Crossing my fingers it isn't the latter.


For nearly 4 years, I've had the opportunity to run the social media platforms for Bailey Orthodontics including our website, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, Pinterest (yes, we have a Pinterest account), and other community platforms. It'...

Upper Permanent Retainer? Eh, Maybe Not.

temp-post-image


As if a metal bar cemented to your lower teeth isn't enough, you want an upper one too? This comes down to a case by case basis, but typically the bottom teeth will hit against an upper permanent retainer and cause it to break and therefore require you to keep purchasing them. A simple removeable will do the trick to hold those beauties in place if worn just at nighttime and it will save your pocketbook!

How Long Will I Be in Braces?


temp-post-image
Are we there yet? How much longer? Til I say so! Actually, that is partially the correct answer. Everyone is unique and no case is the same, which is why it is so important to see a Board Certified Orthodontist. Dr. Bailey completed 4 years of dental school and then an additional 2 years in orthodontics focusing on the growth, development, and movement of teeth. There is a science to moving teeth in a very prescribed way. When you come for an exam, he will use a visual exam of the teeth as well as cutting edge technology from our iCAT 3-D imaging to find the best treatment plan for YOU as an individual. The average for most individuals is 2 years, but many times, if you are a 5 star ortho p...

Retainers...How Long Will They Be A Part of Me?

temp-post-image


Unless you had so much fun the first round and want to repeat the whole orthodontic process all over again, the answer is, yes, retainers are necessary and a lifetime commitment. Teeth continue to move and shift over time as we age. Teeth are held in place by bone and ligaments. Ligaments have a memory and often want to return to their original position. Other forces that apply pressure to the teeth can cause shifting including: chewing, clenching, nail biting, outward pressure of the tongue and inward pressure of the lips. However long you want to keep your teeth aligned, that's the length of time you wear a retainer. In short, this means they should be going with you when you check into th...

Jovie from the movie Elf stated, “JUST SPREAD SOME CHRISTMAS CHEER BY SINGING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR.”


Bailey Orthodontics is stating, “JUST SPREAD SOME CHRISTMAS CHEER BY SMILING WIDE, MAKING STRESS DISAPPEAR.”


Smiling is contagious and what better way to feel the Christmas spirit than sharing a smile and spreading it.


We will be doing a “12 Days of Smiles” challenge. We will have a specific task each day where we ask that you do a “selfie” with the challenge, post it on social media and tag us. Whoever does all 12 days will be entered into our grand prize drawing to win a $500 Amazon gift card. (Must pick up in person.)


The challenge will run star...

Choice and Consequence

temp-post-image


There are two things we Americans value and protect: time and money. We seek to purchase goods for the least amount/best value for our money while also maximizing the most of our time. All of us here at Bailey Orthodontics value time and money just as much as anyone else. We all have busy family lives and are living on a budget. We've often shared with one another deals we've discovered and praise one another for our bargain finds and time savers. A common consequence, though, was while at the time we felt the high of feeling we outsmarted the system, it was often at the expense of sacrificing quality and in the end costing more time and money.



If there is one thing we are passionate about, ...

Dr. Bailey: A Biography of a Very Temporary Vegan

It's a well known fact around the office, Dr. Bailey has been on more diets than Star Wars and Harry Potter movies made...combined. So, when we walked in the office January 8th to the big announcement that "I've gone vegan," the jokes went flying. Don't worry, they were well deserved. Anytime someone decides to take up a new diet plan here in the office, he heckles. Immediately, dates were predicted of how long he would make it with the longest being three days. To add a little pressure to him we thought we would let a few referring dental offices in on the predictions with the promise that whoever came closest to the day he fell off the wagon, Dr. Bailey would supply lunch.
