Now You Can Have Straight Beautiful Teeth Twice as Fast

When you are going through big life changes, you need to feel confident and secure in how you present yourself. A great smile is one way you can help to break the ice in any new setting, and now you can have that incredible, beautiful smile in just half the time. Dr. Pocock is proud to introduce AcceleDent – a revolutionary new dental technology that can potentially cut orthodontic treatment time by up to 50%.

How Does It Work?

Part of the way that orthodontics works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. AcceleDent accelerates this process by using tiny vibrations, or micropulses to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth. It’s clinically proven to move teeth 50% faster than braces alone.

What do a Blue Turtle and a Pink Peacock Have in Common?

As many of you remember, last year, Smiles by Pocock held a drive to collect books for the Blue Turtle Elementary School in Calcutta. Clients, kids and friends of Smilesbypocock all brought their used books to our orthodontic office. Dr. Pocock and his Smilesbypocock staff collected fantasy books, novels, geographic books, storybooks and so much more. It was an impressive sight. In total, 3,000 books were collected. Now: how to get so many books to India?

Edgemont Moving and Storage to the Rescue

Can you imagine how many boxes it takes to pack 3,000 books? Let’s just say the answer is a lot! But, Edgemont Moving and Storage supplied all the boxes, packed up all the books and moved them out to be shipped across the ocean to India. It was a huge job, but they did it all at no cost to our office. It was an act of love. And boy was it appreciated!

Lights, Camera, Action!

We Rolled Out the Red Carpet and Rolled Out the Fun at our First Patient Appreciation Movie Event!

It was bright and early Saturday morning March 7th and the Smilesbypocock staff were hard at work decorating the Esplanade Theatre with bright purple and yellow balloons as Smilesbypocock’s patients were already lining up for an exciting morning! It was a sold out event and the first-ever of its kind!

It all began with a walk down the red carpet on the arm of the dapper Dr. Pocock in his white tuxedo. Cameras were rolling, and the video footage showed, everyone was jazzed to attend this free movie event.

Four Great Reasons To Treat Protruding Teeth Early

Four Great Reasons To Treat Protruding Teeth Early

At SmilesbyPocock we believe that early treatment of protruding front teeth is important for many reasons.

  1. Less Stressful For Parent and Child
    Treatment of protruding or "buck teeth" is much easier and far less stressful for the parent and the child when done early. We can usually use treatment techniques that don't require the cooperation of the patient - which sets everyone up for success with the least amount of effort. Best of all, if protruding teeth are treated early we don't usually have to prescribe headgear!
  2. Less Time Needed To Fix The Problem
    If dental protrusion treatment is left until teenage years it typically takes longer to correct. The fact is that teenagers aren't always happy to comply with headgear and dental appliances because of the impact that it could have on their social life. Let's face it - there aren't many teens who want to be seen wearing headgear at school or in a social setting.
  3. Less Potential Trauma
    Early treatment of protruding teeth protects the teeth and reduces the chance of trauma. Trauma caused by protruding teeth can include: broken teeth, lost teeth and even the need for a root canal!
  4. More Confidence and Improved Appearance
    Children, adolescents and teens are most concerned with two things:
    1. Their physical appearance and;
    2. What other kids say about them.
    For most kids, if unpleasant things are said about their teeth or appearance it can be damaging to their self-esteem. Normalizing facial and dental appearance almost always boosts a child's self-confidence. And this improved self-confidence helps tremendously during critical school years and is probably the most important reason for getting protruding teeth "fixed" early!
