Orthodontic Treatment for All Ages

Orthodontic Treatment for All AgesThe goal of orthodontic treatment, which may include the use of braces, retainers, or aligners, is to straighten your teeth, and if necessary, correct your bite. While patients typically begin treatment during their pre-teen or teenage years, many adults are also seeking the benefits of orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics is valuable at any age, because it addresses several important issues...





* 2 Boxes of white cake mix

*4 Drops of food coloring

*1 Cup butter

*5 Cups powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)

*1 Tablespoon of vanilla



1) For the cake, make one box cake mix according to the directions on the box. Separate batter into 3 bowls with roughly about 1 cup of cake mix per bowl. Add desired food coloring to each bowl (purple, blue, green).

2) Bake cakes in round pans according to box instructions, but make sure you check the cake about 10 minutes before it's supposed to be done. With less mix in each pan, they can cook faster.

3) Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the remaining colors (red, orange, yellow). You will now have 6 layers of different colors.

4) For the frosting, mix together softened (room temperature) butter and softened (room temperature) cream cheese until well combined. Add vanilla. Combine. Slowly add in powdered sugar.

5) After the 5th cup of powdered sugar, taste the frosting and see if you would like it sweeter. (I tend to use the full 6 cups, but some prefer the frosting less sweet)

6) Try to level each layer of cake with a large bread knife. If all the layers are level, then they will evenly display when you cut into it.

7) Start with the PURPLE layer first. Put the purple layer on your cake stand or plate. Add enough frosting to cover the layer and some to spill over the edges, anywhere from 1/2 to 1 cup of frosting. Run the flat, straight side of a knife around the cake to smooth out the edges.

8) Add the BLUE layer of the cake. Put frosting in the middle, start spreading out frosting with the flat, straight side of a knife so that it covers the cake and falls out over the edges. Then run your knife around the outside edge of the cake to smooth out the sides.

9) Put the cake into the fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour.

10) Repeat with the GREEN layer, then the YELLOW layer.

11) Put cake into the fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour.

12) Repeat with the ORANGE layer, then the RED layer.

13) Cover cake with frosting and run the flat, straight edge of a knife around the edges of the cake to smooth out the frosting.

14) Once you have finished frosting the cake, add any decorative touches that fit your occasion!!!!

15) ENJOY!


Summer Time Camping Safety


Summer has finally arrived! All of us from Pelsue Orthodontics would like to wish you a very happy summer. The list of things to do to enjoy the nice warm days are endless! Camping, fishing, boating, riding bikes, playing sports, and don't forget fireworks on the 4th of July. Although all of these things are fun, we would like to remind you all to have safety in mind.

Safety tips for campers:

  • Sparklers can reach 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit and that's hot enough to melt gold. Sparklers remain hot even after the spark is gone. Always place them in a bucket of water. Sparklers thrown on the ground can cause grass fires.
  • Point fireworks away from homes, and keep them away from brush, leaves and flammable substances. The NFPA estimates that local fire departments respond to an average of 19,700 fires caused by fireworks each year.
  • Chinese lanterns can stay airborne for 20 minutes and reach up to one mile high before coming down in unplanned locations. The open flame has the potential to start fires.
  • Soak all fireworks in a bucket of water before throwing them in the trash.
  • Use fire rings in non-flammable areas when possible.
  • Never leave a campfire unattended.
  • Keep a water source and shovel nearby.
  • Place roasting sticks in a bucket of water when not in use.
  • Completely extinguish fires before turning in for the night. Douse with water, stir and douse again to make sure no embers are left.

Fireworks and campfires are a great way to celebrate the Fourth of July, but you'll enjoy the holidays much more knowing that your family and your property are safe.


Happy camping and don't forget August 10th is National Smores Day!!
