Texas has many miles of ocean coastline, streams, and rivers. For this reason, Texas has been a top destination for those who want to enjoy the beaches and waterways for many years. Many different boats and other types of watercraft also operate in this territory.

However, the inattentiveness of boat drivers or defects in some parts of the vessel may possibly cause problems. Moreover, unpredictable as it is, natural disasters can happen and wreak havoc on your boat.

Voyaging in rough seas poses a danger to you and your passengers; therefore be very conscious of current and expected weather conditions. If the weather turns bad, the occurrence of accidents involving watercraft is much more likely.

Invisalign Braces – The Clear Choice for Straight Teeth

The advanced technology of the Invisalign Teen™ allows a clear, plastic device to achieve the same results as the old-fashioned braces, but without metal bands, brackets or wires. Among other issues, the Invisalign spacers correct crowded teeth, wide spaces, cross bite, overbite and underbite.invisalign braces - orthodontics

“Clearly different” – “Clearly undetectable” – “Clearly Awesome!” That’s what teens are saying about the Invisalign aligners, a totally different and “awesome” way to straighten teeth.

Custom designed especially for you, Invisalign Teen™ straighten your teeth with a series of custom-made clear aligners that are almost totally undetectable, allowing you to keep doing the things you want – playing sports, singing, playing in the band, or hanging out with friends. They will not interfere with your social life in any way, and you can even have pictures taken, confident that your smile and not your braces will be what people are looking at. Imagine getting your Senior Pictures taken without the embarrassment of the “metal mouth” smile you see in those old yearbooks.

Since you can remove the Invisalign aligners there are no forbidden foods. You can eat pizza and caramel apples, and even chew gum without the worry of things getting stuck between the wires and the brackets. You also don’t have the pain of wires poking you in the cheeks, rubber bands popping in your mouth, or days of discomfort after your braces have been tightened.

There are so many advantages to the Invisalign Teen™ aligners it’s almost impossible to think of going to metal braces. You may experience a bit of discomfort during the initial period, but as you get used to them they are virtually painless. Invisalign moves your teeth in such small increments you won’t even know they are moving at all, and you don’t have to wait for the braces to be taken off to see results. Many people have remarked that they can see changes after only a few weeks.

As your appearance and smile improves, so will your confidence. A whole new world, and a new attitude, will open up for you.

Your parents will be happy to hear there are other advantages with the Invisalign Teen™ device not available in the “adult” version (Invisalign is also for adults!). The investment they make with their hard-earned money has some safeguards “built in.”
As part of the Invisalign Teen™ device a blue button has been added that will allow the dentist to track if you are wearing the spacers and complying with the treatment laid out. The dot is designed to fade to clear over a two-week period. If worn properly for 20-22 hours per day, taken out only for eating, brushing, playing sports or attending special events, you will accomplish what you have set out to do. If you aren’t wearing them like you should, your dentist will know.

Since Invisalign Teen™ allows for the growth of permanent teeth (secondary molars and first and second bicuspids) you don’t have to put off treatment until all their teeth are in.

As a bonus, you don’t have to worry about losing an aligner. Free replacements of up to six spacers are included in your treatment schedule…just in case.

With Invisalign Teen™ there is also the advantage of more time to do everything. What would have taken two years with traditional braces can often be accomplished in far less time with the clear spacers, and with fewer office visits to disrupt your schedule.

Invisalign Teen™ is fairly new technology, but it is not without tried and tested results. Over a million people worldwide have been equipped with Invisalign and the vast majority of them have been extremely pleased with the ease, comfort and results. Many of your favorite movie and television stars have worn, or are currently wearing, Invisalign. Some even wear them while they are working – bet you didn’t know that!

Our dentists have performed over 50,000 cosmetic procedures and are Certified Invisalign Providers – for both teens and adults. In addition to 10 years of experience in traditional orthodontics, and four years of advanced training experience in aesthetics, TMJ and bite correction, they can provide an assortment of treatments to correct your teeth, gums and jaw structure, including conventional braces treatment, if that is what is needed.

Only a certified professional can determine if the Invisalign Teen™ is right for you. Although not everyone is a candidate, the majority of people are, and only a consultation with a certified Invisalign professional will be able to determine the best course of treatment for your particular problem.

After your dentist examines you, he will sit down with you and your parents to discuss possible courses of treatment. The staff will take their time and answer any questions you may have.

Call our office today to set up your free consultation. Don’t put off getting the smile you deserve.


Levon Helm’s Friday News & Views

Levon Helm

People have got to stop dying this week.

Despite April 20th’s counter-culture connotations (if you want that, go over to Louisville Sports Radio), we gather here tonight to celebrate the life of a music legend. Levon Helm, best known as the drummer and singer of The Band, succumbed to throat at the age of 71 on Thursday.

Helm’s soulful southern voice headlined hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek,” “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” and “The Weight.” Helm hailed from Turkey Scratch, Arkansas, and it showed in his music, which, in my mind, was made for summer road trips across the South. During his fifty-year music career, Helm played with many legendary rockers, including Bob Dylan, with whom he frequently collaborated. His most famous work came with The Band, and is documented in the brilliant film, “The Last Waltz,” a concert thought to be the group’s last that was filmed by Martin Scorsese. Helm and his Band mates were joined by over a dozen special guests, including Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, and Neil Young.

In a time when most popular music is manufactured on a sound board, it’s nice to look back at the people that truly mastered the craft. Rest in peace, Levon.

Now, take a load off and enjoy these news and views…

Let’s start with two very important packages that Coach Cal received on Thursday: Nerlens Noel’s Letter of Intent (more on that later), and the big crystal NABC National Championship trophy. After its football counterpart shattered due to a pair of butterfingers recently in Alabama, I doubt this one will leave the Craft Center.

However, if you missed the other, non-crystal National Championship trophy during its statewide tour last week, it will be on display from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday before the UK/LSU baseball game at Cliff Hagan Stadium and also at Commonwealth Stadium from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. prior to the Blue/White game. Fans are invited to come take a picture with it. You’ll never need a new Christmas card picture again.

Your Anthony Bennett update: On Thursday, Bennett cut Washington from his list, which leaves Florida, Kentucky, Oregon and UNLV battling for the talented 6’7″ forward. Bennett will make three visits before making his decision, but hasn’t said which schools get the honor. Bennett spoke to Orlando Antigua on Wednesday, which was followed by a “lengthy sit-down” with Florida coach Billy Donovan. Coaches from UNLV and Oregon were also present at Bennett’s workout at Findlay Prep. Florida is considered by many to be the front-runner for Bennett, but there’s nothing like a National Championship and potentially six first round draft picks to sway the decision in the Cats’ favor.

Singer Levon Helm

Perhaps Nerlens Noel can fill Bennett in on what is sure to be an amazing visit to Lexington? Despite already committing to be a Cat, Nerlens is taking his last “official visit” to Kentucky this weekend to deliver his Letter of Intent. After receiving the letter, Coach Cal was finally able to discuss his new player, whom he likened to Anthony Davis (see, even he can’t help it) and Marcus Camby as someone who can have an impact on a game without scoring. Cal reminded Cats fans that like Davis, Noel is not a finished product who has a lot of work to do, but one capable of doing special things that he is “ecstatic to have an opportunity to work with.” I think the feeling is mutual, Coach. And as if the weekend couldn’t get any better for Noel, he was named the 2012 USA Today National High School Player of the Year, an accolade of the likes we hope he gets pretty used to around here.

Cal said that like the 2011 class, the 2012 class will “all play off one another,” and are “all great kids who have a desire to win, have terrific talent and who all complement each other.” If history teaches us anything, it’s that 99.9% of the time, Cal’s kids have character that matches their talent, which is why you should stop worrying about next season.

With Marquis Teague and Doron Lamb making the jump to the big league, Kentucky’s recruitment of Torian Graham is back on. You might remember Graham most for his commitment and subsequent decommitment from NC State earlier this year. Along with SG Archie Goodwin, Graham can bring some much-needed depth to the back court. Graham is ranked 67th in the class of 2012 by Rivals and Orlando Antigua watched him play on Wednesday. Some doubt Graham’s chances at qualifying, but if Cal sent Antigua to watch him play, he must be confident. Graham has until May 16th to make his decision.

Are you ready for some football? Come on…the Blue/White game is this Saturday at 6 p.m. and I can think of a whole squad of blue-clad men who’d love to see you there. Need more incentive? The athletic department is pulling out all the stops for this event, with an appearance by the National Championship trophy, a free poster commemorating the team’s win over Tennessee, and a “Super Surplus Sale” of UK team apparel beginning at 3 p.m. That means your dreams of owning Randall Cobb’s old socks may come true (if I don’t beat you to them).

If you’re looking to make it a day full of Wildcat fun, head over to Cliff Hagan Stadium and take in the Bat Cats’ game against #2 LSU at 2 p.m. It will be the second of a three-game series against the Tigers, with the first Friday night at 6:30 p.m. For those of you unable to make it, the series will be televised on Fox Sports South.

You want more baseball? Okay. The Lexington Catholic/Farragut High School (Knoxville, TN) baseball series this weekend has been selected the “ECoach/Perfect Game National Game of the Week.” Friday night’s game is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. EST, and Saturday’s broadcast is set for 12:00 p.m. EST. Both teams are ranked first in their state; Lexington Catholic is ranked 46th nationally and Farragut close behind at 45th. Both broadcasts can be viewed at and (and additionally on Lexington Catholic’s

While the major renovation project remains up in the air, the off-season renovations to Rupp Arena are well under way. Preliminary work on the locker rooms has already begun, with construction set to begin next month. The project is set to cost $2.9 million, and the renovations will include improvements to the training room, the addition of a hydro-therapy treatment whirlpool, a medical room with an X-ray machine, team meeting room, a second coach’s office, team lounge and food service area, along with a new press area.

Drummer Levon Helm

Want to be the next Matt Jones or Radio Ron? Head to Northern Kentucky for Saturday’s KSTV Casting Call! The auditions will be held in Florence at Insight Communications Studio (7906 Dixie Highway, Florence, KY 41042).

Would you rather write about sports? We need you! We’re looking to add new writers to for the summer and fall semester. To qualify, you must be a college student (preferably at Kentucky) and send a resume and a writing sample to [email protected] Entries need to be in by Monday, April 22, and all applicants must be available for an interview in Lexington on Sunday, April 29. It’ll make you popular (just kidding).

Finally, one last “rest in peace” for DeMarcus Cousins’ pup, Roscoe. The 18-week-old bulldog died after suffering an allergic reaction to a bee sting. When asked about it, DeMarcus said: “He just collapsed in his crate while I was on our last road trip. We had an autopsy done and everything because we wanted to know what happened. The (veterinarian) said it was from a bee sting.” Yet another reason to hate bees…

The boys will be back bright and early, broadcasting live from Keeneland. Tune in at 10 a.m. for stories and fail-proof racing picks. Who knows? Maybe they’ll talk about sports, too.
