Joe McKee Visits for Six Month Smiles

joe mckee visits his Larbert dentistLarbert FC midfielder Joe McKee visited the practice again this week but this time for more than a dental checkup.

Joe was in for Six Month Smiles braces. He had been concerned about his lower front teeth being crowded and was having difficulty flossing.

Dr Murphy fitted his lower braces at the Larbert practice and the procedure will finish with teeth whitening and a lower retainer.

Six Month Smiles is a fantastic form of short term orthodontics helping patients straighten their teeth in double quick time.

Don’t listen to the Suits. Your retainer is for life.

If you follow the legal drama Suits on television you will be familiar with the character Louis Litt.

Partner in the firm Pearson Specter Litt, he came out with a notable quote in this week’s episode; one we couldn’t helped annotating.

“The woman’s in her 60s and she’s still wearing a retainer,” he said.

To which we say “And so she should!”

The mantra of our dentists carrying out any clear or cosmetic braces work is that ‘retention is for life.’

Your teeth can always move back, which means that the character Louis Litt refers to almost certainly has great looking teeth!
