Do You Know How To Take The Perfect Selfie?

Taking a selfie is an art form in itself. A great selfie is more than just a quick camera click, it actually takes a level of skill to capture and edit the perfect one. After some practice and a few hundred captured pictures (we're only joking) these simple techniques we just know will make you a selfie master in no time at all.
  • Capture Your Best Angle. Instead of taking the picture head-on, turn your head a little to the right or left, or maybe hold your camera a little higher. Try different angles to show off your best features.
  • Show Off Something New. If you decide to take a selfie to show off something new, like…oh we don’t know, maybe your braces, make sure that you frame the photo in a way that highlights the new accessory that has you so excited.
  • Have Expression. You can never go wrong with smiling! Play around with different smiles and expressions and have fun! No matter what, a smile is the best expression you can wear.
  • Focus on Lighting. A great light source is an essential part of taking any photograph. Natural light is best, so start taking those selfies near a window or outdoors.
  • Don't Use a Mirror. Just stretch your arm out, point the camera toward your face and click.You can use your face forward camera to make it easier!
Ok, now you’re ready! Upload those selfies to all of your feeds…Instagram, Facebook, anywhere and everywhere. Are you a patient of Hinesly Orthodontics? Then tag us in your selfies, we'd love to see your smiling faces! Use #HineslyOrthodontics!

The Details On DIY Braces & Why You Should Avoid This

Hinesly Orthodontics and the American Association of Orthodontists have a prompt announcement for consumers about “DIY” orthodontic treatment. It is with great urgency that we emphasize to you all to be cautious about the trending “DIY” orthodontic treatment because straightening your teeth on your own can lead to lifelong dental problems.

Do-It-Yourself videos and websites are popular among today’s culture, and while so many great ideas come from several of these outlets, there are some things that you just shouldn’t do yourself! Straightening your teeth or attempting to move your teeth as a “DIY” project is definitely one of the things you should not be doing. 

Moving and straightening teeth is a medical procedure that needs to be supervised by an orthodontist. It’s important for you all to be wary of any videos or websites that advise you to use objects such as rubber bands, dental floss, or anything else in order to get straight teeth. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, “Moving teeth without a thorough examination of the overall health of the teeth and gums could result in the permanent loss of teeth, which may result in expensive and lifelong dental problems.”

If you have any further questions regarding “DIY” orthodontics or are curious about straightening your teeth, please contact us at our Ann Arbor or Tecumseh office.

November 11th is National Sundae Day!

Happy National Sundae Day! It's a tradition every year, on the 11th of November for ice cream lovers to celebrate one of the most popular desserts, the ice cream sundae! Sundaes come in all flavors, shapes, and sizes, but there are always 4 main ingredients that make a sundae, a sundae! Those ingredients are, ice cream, flavored sauce, whipped cream, and a cherry on top! Add in some sprinkles, maybe some cookies, and there you have it, one of America's favorite treats.

So maybe you're an ice cream sundae lover looking for a new recipe? Well, look no further! We found a delicious mouth-watering recipe sure to satisfy any ice cream sundae appetite.
HOW TO MAKE THIS: The key to this P.B.-chocolate overload is a creamy peanut butter like that will melt into a smooth, pourable sauce when heated. Microwave some peanut butter in 15-second bursts until it’s warm, then coat the glass with a spoonful of it and some fudge sauce before layering with chocolate ice cream, Reese’s pieces, halved peanut butter cups, and extra sauce.
