What Are The Best Braces For You?

In the United States only, Pennsylvanian dental association reported that almost four million people are wearing braces. Dental braces have become popular throughout the country. Most dental braces are made from metal, but you will still find out that there are many types of braces to choose from.

The question arises as to which braces are best suitable to use. Even though your dentist will recommend a type, you also have a choice in the type of braces you prefer. But why do dentist recommend braces in the first place?

Why do dentists recommend braces? Braces are used to help improve or restore a person “orofacial” appearance. Most commonly a person who gets fitted with braces surfers from various orthodontic problems like.

  • Incorrect jaw position.
    Crooked teeth.
    Underbites and overbites

These problems if left untreated may result in more serious conditions and diseases such as; tooth decay, gum disease, ear ache or migraines.

When is the right time for braces? Most people tend to believe that braces are meant for kids, but this is not the case, they can be used by everyone regardless of age. Most dentists recommend that the best age to use braces is usually 10-14 years. At this age the mouth and the head are still growing and therefore, the teeth are most susceptible to change.

Though it is recommended that you discuss with your kids first the importance of braces before they wear one to avoid stigmatization. Adults, just as the kids, can suffer from a minor dental problem that will require the use of braces. a dentist will recommend the use of the braces in such circumstances.

The first type of braces is the traditional stainless steel metal braces. Also made of wires, this type of braces are fortunately smaller in size than they were a few years back and with their heat activated wire they will move your teeth in the position much more quickly as they respond to your body heat.

These metal braces tend to be less costly and best for kids but on the downside, they are more noticeable and you would probably have a difficult time eating hard or sticky food. Ceramic braces are also available. These braces appear the same as the metal braces both in shape and size, but they are tooth-colored or ceramic.

Usually, they are more costly than the metal braces and will stain more easily. But compared to the metal braces you will find them much better when it comes to maintaining a low profile. Lingual or concealed braces are fitted at the back of your teeth to remain hidden the disadvantage of these braces is that they are less likely to be used for severe cases. Lastly are the aligner braces. These braces are clear, removable and also customizable.

Unlike their counterparts, they can be removed in cases where you are eating, brushing or flossing though they are only available for teens and adults. In conclusion, there are many types of braces available to choose from. You can consult a dentist if you are unsure which type you prefer.

My Fitness Bikini Body Guide Review

Let’s face it, we all want a nice looking bikini body. Looking young and sexy is every woman’s desire, but this is not usually easily achievable especially in this era of fast foods. We all love junk, who doesn’t grab some junk at some point of the day anyway?

Because daily activities sometimes overwhelm us and we are not able to visit the gym regularly, I have decided to compare two bikini body guides for you. They are both digitally downloaded home workout guides, therefore no shipment is needed. Let’s focus on Ferruggia workouts versus Kayla Itsines bikini body guide. If these products don’t sound familiar, they are from two women who have helped many other women shape up into younger and good looking bikini bodies.

Please move with me as I am about to tell you what you need to know about these two guides. I hope after this review you will be able to make a much more informed decision for your shopping.

Ferruggia workouts versus Kayla Itsines

I presume those who have prior knowledge about either of these products will agree with me that Kayla Itsines and Ferruggia workouts bikini body guides are among the most popular guides, although Kayla Itsines is more popular on social media like we will discuss later in this review.

In terms of pricing, Kayla Itsines bikini body guide costs more than Jen Feruggia’s. I don’t know about you but I always take consideration when I see something similar and cheaper. I’m talking about Ferruggia bikini body workout guide. It costs much less to me.

Let’s compare the cost a little deeper so that you can have a clear picture of what am talking about. The beginner cost for Kayla Itsines level 1 BBG 1.0 is $ 69.97 while you get the same package for $39.95 with Jen Ferruggia. For the advanced level package, Kayla Itsines BBG 2.0 sells at $69.97 while her counterpart Jen Ferruggia sells it at $19.99. Jen Ferruggia also throws in some more friendly price offer.She offers a 60 day money back guarantee. Kayla Itsines doesn’t offer this.

Kayla Itsines social popularity is much higher than Jen Ferruggia. Kayla has quite an impressive Instagram and Twitter following which may explain the high pricing. But does popularity really mean the product is good? Well, that’s for you to decide but women have a tendency of liking popular and expensive stuff. I salute Kayla Itsines for achieving such popularity.


Both guides come with a nutrition guide, progress meters and lots of health advice. Kyla Itsines provides her content in images and lots of literature. I am not saying I don’t like reading, but I prefer video demonstrations instead. I find video demonstrations more appealing to most people.

This is what Jen Ferruggia has employed, her guide is presented in well prepared video demonstrations. Jen Ferruggia’s guide offers more content like printable materials, pictures plus you get her metabolic nutritional guide for free.

The foods Kayla Itsines talk about in her nutrition guide are quite expensive and some say the low calorie foods she advocates for are not good for you. Jen Ferruggia’s bikini body guide on the other hand contains interactive e-books and well demonstrated work out videos.

She also presents a FREE nutrition guide with a  shopping list and a bikini body supplement list that ensures you only eat what will be beneficial to you. Well, according to me, I think Jen Ferruggian’s bikini body guide is more packaged,more detailed,more specific but less popular than Kayla Itsine’s.

Having reviewed these two products, I am not able to find where the price difference comes in considering they are almost the same. The bikini body guide presents less content compared to Jen Ferruggia’s yet Kayla Itsines’s guide is more expensive than Jen Ferruggia. If you have used are or are using either of the two guides, feel free to share your experience through a comment. It’s always good to compare notes.
