Don’t Let Dental Implants Hold You Back From a Straighter Smile

A close-up of a beautiful young woman's smile.

Invisalign has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional or conventional orthodontic treatment. While ceramic or metal braces can give you straighter teeth, Invisalign can discreetly achieve the same goal.

 

Those who are considering Invisalign naturally have many questions. If you have found yourself in the position of having had a dental implant but are now interested in Invisalign, you are likely wondering if you’re still a candidate.

 

While every case is different, in general, you can still be considered a candidate for Invisalign regardless of having a dental implant. Invisalign can also be used after someone has had bridges, crowns or fillings too.

 

Invisalign and Dental Implants

A dental implant is permanent. The shape, position, and angle of the implant will never change for the rest of your life. That being said, the teeth positioned around a dental implant can be repositioned and adjusted in other ways. It is certainly preferable to get Invisalign first and proceed with a dental implant after teeth are in their final location. This is because dental implants are fixed to the bone. While it is usually not ideal, it is certainly possible to get a dental implant before your teeth are moved into their desired position.

Why Missing Teeth Matter

More than 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and that number is increasing every day. Missing a tooth doesn’t just leave a gap in your mouth. It can lead to bone loss and also make other aligned teeth shift. Shifting teeth can lead to a misaligned bite, cause wrinkles over time, and can make your remaining teeth crooked.

Dental Implants Before Invisalign

If you already have a dental implant from years prior, you are likely still a candidate for Invisalign. Your treatment plan will focus on addressing the teeth surrounding the dental implant to straighten your overall smile.

Dental Implants After Invisalign

Most dentists will likely suggest getting Invisalign before having a dental implant placed if possible because it makes your treatment more simple overall. Having Invisalign first also gives your dentist or orthodontist more flexibility when establishing your treatment plan.

 

It’s preferable for you to have a dental implant placed after Invisalign because:

 

  • Dental implants are rigid
  • As your teeth shift, the implants can damage them because Invisalign is unable to move the dental implants along with the rest of your teeth
  • In some cases, orthodontic treatment is needed to ensure there is enough room for a dental implant to be placed appropriately

Straightening Your Teeth With Invisalign

Choosing to use the Invisalign system will put you on the direct path towards achieving a straighter, more attractive smile. Not only this, but you will be able to do so without letting on to others that you’re even going through orthodontic treatment. Invisalign consists of clear, plastic aligners, and you will wear each aligner for approximately two weeks. These aligners are barely noticeable to others, and many patients find their treatment to be a comfortable experience.

 

Are You Ready For a Straighter Smile?

The entire Invisalign treatment is ideal for correcting minor issues with crooked, widely spaced, and overcrowded teeth. Treatment times vary, but the average duration for most adults is 12 months. Straighter teeth are easier to clean which will lead to a healthier smile and improved dental health.

Don’t let dental implants stand in your way of achieving a straighter, healthier smile. Contact Cherrywood Dental Associates today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how Invisalign can perfectly complement your dental implants.

 

Fluoride: Your Teeth’s Best Friend

Most people have heard of fluoride and associate the powerful mineral with a trip to the dentist’s office. However, many don’t understand what fluoride is, where it can be found, and how it benefits our teeth. Here is a quick overview of how a simple mineral with significant cavity-fighting powers can benefit our teeth as well as our overall health!

What is Fluoride?

The American Dental Association identifies fluoride as a natural mineral that helps to prevent cavities. While the mineral occurs naturally in several foods, it’s commonly used as a staple ingredient in toothpaste and mouthwash. Its ability to strengthen tooth enamel makes it an important part of oral health.

 

How Can Fluoride Benefit My Teeth?

Cavities are one of the most common dental problems, and consistently providing your teeth with an adequate amount of fluoride is one of the best ways to prevent cavities. Cavities occur because of weakened enamel. However, fluoride’s ability to strengthen enamel greatly improves overall oral health and fights the corrosion of teeth.

Fluoride’s cavity-fighting powers benefit both children and adults. The mineral’s systemic benefit sets teeth up for success before they break through the gums by strengthening the new teeth and making it easier for them to resist decay once they come through the gums, and fluoride’s topical benefit strengthens teeth that have begun to weaken over time.

 

What are Some Common Sources of Fluoride?

As a natural mineral, fluoride occurs in several of the foods we consume. Some foods and drinks rich in the mineral include:

  • Potatoes
  • Crab
  • Tea
  • Wine
  • Most water sources also contain significant natural fluoride

Other sources include:

  • Most types of toothpaste and mouthwash
  • Professional fluoride treatments
  • Fluoride supplements–generally recommended for children whose water sources do not provide adequate fluoride

Replace Your Dentures With This Permanent, Natural-Looking Solution

If you are missing one or more teeth due to decay, injury, disease, or due to aging, you may be a candidate for TeethXpress. Many patients who have conventional dentures share common struggles of dentures being uncomfortable or not staying in place.

 

TeethXpress offers a way to keep dentures secure and allows you to go about your daily life with complete confidence.

 

 

New Teeth In One Day With TeethXpress

With TeethXpress, your new fixed-in teeth will be completely stable, will look as natural as your own teeth once did, and they will not slip or irritate your gums. The advanced technology used allows for the TeethXpress system to give patients a secure solution with the same chewing power as natural teeth.

 

Cherrywood Dental can typically perform any needed extractions, place all of your implants and provide you with a set of new replacement teeth all in a single day.

 

How TeethXpress Works

With past denture technology, many patients with severe bone loss in their jaw were not eligible for implant-supported replacement teeth since implants rely on a certain amount of bone present in order for them to be stable. The TeethXpress system uses specially designed implants that come in a variety of sizes and shapes.

 

TeethXpress is a system that secures a denture to your jaw using dental implants. TeethXpress is similar to “all-on-four” or “teeth-in-a-day” systems; However, this unique system utilizes more implants than other methods to secure your denture to your jaw bone. TeethXpress can offer you secure, natural looking teeth in one day without the complications of other similar products.

 

Permanent Denture Advantages

No Food Restrictions. TeethXpress allows for you to have nearly the same chewing power as natural teeth, allowing you to eat the foods you want and require for maintaining proper nutrition without having to do any blending or cutting into tiny pieces.

 

Eliminates Painful Chewing or Mouth Sores. Securely fixing your denture to implants means your dentist can be “anchored” to your jawbone. Chewing will become easy and comfortable, and painful mouth sores from loose-fitting dentures will become a thing of the past.

 

No False Palate. Your TeethXpress system will not have the false palate that blocks your senses of taste and your perception of hot and cold. Eating and drinking will not only be more pleasurable, but it will be safer too.

 

Preserves Your Jawbone. Your jawbone requires stimulation from chewing and biting to force pressure on your tooth roots. Bone loss occurs when teeth are missing, and stimulation is absent. Implant supports allow for the same type of pressure to be exerted with your dentures as it would with natural tooth roots to prevent further bone loss.

 

Restore Your Confidence

Traditional dentures rarely stay in place. You may begin to notice that your denture that once fit well now constantly slips and requires costly and timely visits to the dentist for an adjustment. This is a very common issue with denture patients because wearing dentures forces the bone in your jaw to shrink. Eventually, the shrinkage will be so extreme that your original denture will no longer fit, and you will be forced to replace it.

 

TeethXpress offers a way to keep dentures secure and gives you the confidence you deserve throughout your day. Not only will you be able to have beautiful, natural-looking teeth, but they will also function like natural teeth. The TeethXpress solution helps patients regain their confidence by allowing them to eat, speak, and live confidently without fear of slipping dentures.

 

 

Tired of Your Loose Denture?

If you currently have a denture or you are missing many teeth, TeethXpress may be the solution for which you have been searching. TeethXpress can eliminate typical denture issues, and the system enables your dentures to function just like natural teeth.

 

Regain your confidence in your smile with TeethXpress and Cherrywood Dental Associates. Call today to schedule a consultation appointment and to learn whether you would be an excellent candidate for this unique replacement option.

 

 

Experiencing Gum Pain? Follow These Steps For Quick Relief

closeup of toothpaste on toothbrush

 

Chances are if you are reading this, you are in search of a quick solution for the gum pain you are experiencing. Swollen gums can be a sign of a severe oral condition; however, you might be able to treat painful gums at home with one of these at-home solutions.

 

What Causes Gum Pain?

Experiencing painful gums when you eat, drink, brush or floss your teeth may lead you to quickly wonder what is causing the discomfort. Sore or bleeding gums can be caused by improper brushing or flossing techniques, the use of tobacco products, certain hormonal changes, or it can even be a sign of gum disease. If not properly cared for, early gum disease can progress to other serious oral health issues.

 

Gum pain is most commonly related to:

 

  • Sinus infections
  • Canker sores
  • Cuts or abrasions
  • Gum disease

 

If you are experiencing chronic gum pain and sensitivity, we recommend making an appointment with your dentist to diagnose the cause of your discomfort.

 

Salt Water Rinse

A salt water rinse is a great home remedy to help aid painful gums. The salt in the water prevents the growth of bacteria and helps to eliminate any bacteria that is currently growing in your mouth.

 

Step 1: Add ½ teaspoon of salt to a glass of lukewarm water.

Step 2: Rinse your mouth twice daily until the gum pain and swelling subsides. Do not swallow the salt water rinse.

 

Hot or Cold Compress

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to relieve painful gums is by applying compresses on your gums to ease the pain. Either hot or cold compresses will suffice, or a combination of the two.

 

Step 1: Soak a clean cloth in warm water, wringing out any excess liquid.

Step 2: Press the cloth against your cheek over the affected sore gums for five minutes.

Step 3: Wrap an ice pack in a thin towel. Hold the cold compress against your face for three minutes, or until your swollen gums become slightly numb.

Step 4: Repeat 2-3 more times daily for best results and quick relief.

 

Hydrogen Peroxide

Soothe sore gum pain and reduce inflammation with hydrogen peroxide. This method is great for killing germs and fighting many other oral health issues.

 

Step 1: Mix equal parts of water and hydrogen peroxide.

Step 2: Swish the peroxide solution in your mouth for 20 seconds.

Step 3: Do not swallow the solution, and rinse your mouth out with warm water after spitting.

 

Steeped Tea Bag

Select a tea that has astringent properties such as green tea, black tea, or hibiscus tea. You can also select a tea that is rich in anti-inflammatory properties such as chamomile or ginger. Tea bags are a great way to soothe painful gums.

 

Step 1: Soak a tea bag in boiling water for at least five minutes.

Step 2: Let the tea bag cool slightly for 1-2 minutes, so it is not boiling hot to the touch.

Step 3: Apply the tea bag to the affected gum tissue.

 

Turmeric Paste

Turmeric is another natural ingredient that contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Use to help reduce swelling and inflammation; turmeric can also be used as a pain reliever.

 

Step 1: Mix ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder with a little water to create a paste.

Step 2: Apply paste to sore gums with a clean finger.

Step 3: Leave the paste on the sore gums for five minutes.

Step 4: Massage tender gum tissue lightly for one minute with paste

Step 5: Rinse your mouth with warm water. Do not swallow paste.

 

When To See a Dentist

 

If your gums bleed or cause you pain for more than a week, it’s recommended to be seen by a dentist. Red, swollen gum tissue that bleeds easily is a common indication of gum disease. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to a more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis and ultimately lead to tooth loss.

Keep your gums healthy and prevent gum disease by scheduling regular cleanings and exams with Cherrywood Dental Associates. Together, we will keep your gums in great health!

 

 

Sleep Apnea: How it Affects Your Teeth

sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a serious condition where a person doesn’t breathe properly while they slumber. This results in periods of not breathing at all, which is not only unhealthy for the brain or heart but unhealthy on a person’s oral health.

If you suffer from sleep apnea, you need to let your dentist know. Here are some ways sleep apnea affects your oral health.

Teeth grinding

Many people who have sleep apnea also grind their teeth in their sleep. This is the result of the stress on the body as it struggles to restore oxygen levels.

When you’re a chronic tooth grinder, you wear down your tooth enamel by chipping, cracking, or actively breaking your teeth. You also put your jaw at risk with the constant pressure you put on these bones.

Acid Reflux

Acid reflux can be common in some people who have sleep apnea, particularly patients who are overweight. During rest, the stomach acids for digesting foods comes into the back of the throat and enters the mouth, eroding the dental tissue as a result. People with serious acid reflux often show signs of tooth damage on the backs of teeth where the acids are most prevalent.

Dental Alignment

Clenching the teeth tightly during sleep can cause the teeth to align poorly, which results in jaw pain, difficulty chewing, or even a locking jaw effect during waking hours.

Dental Intervention

Luckily, there are things your dentist can do to help keep your mouth healthy even if you are a chronic sleep apnea sufferer. Special mouth guards can be prescribed to help protect your teeth against grinding and clenching activities. Prescription toothpaste and remineralization treatments can also be done to help restore tooth enamel damaged by acid reflux.

If you have sleep apnea, notify your dentist. Even if you don’t feel you have any dental issues related to your sleeping condition, your teeth should be examined and given special care. Our dental team at Cherrywood Dental Associates are here to serve you; contact us today for a consultation.

5 Reasons Your Spring Athlete Should Be Wearing a Mouthguard

dental guard for sleep

 

As the weather warms up, a new sports season begins. When gathering all of the equipment necessary for your child to participate in the upcoming sports season, there is one major piece of equipment that should not be left off of your list: a mouthguard. Regardless of if your teen wears braces or not, your child should be wearing one.

 

According to the American Dental Association, 75% of injuries to high school athletes occur when mouthguards were not worn leading to more than 200,000 oral injuries. Here are five important reasons why your spring athlete should be wearing a mouthguard.

 

 

The Front Teeth Are The Most At Risk

Your front teeth naturally stick out slightly further than the rest of your teeth when you bite. This leaves your front teeth particularly susceptible to receiving injury and trauma to the face. With a mouthguard, you can rest assured that your upper teeth, lips, tongue, and cheek lining are all protected while playing a sport, contact or not.

 

Even Non-Contact Sports Need Mouthguards

We always make the recommendation to parents that you implement a mouth guard as a standard piece of equipment to your little athlete from an early age. It is essential to wear a mouthguard while playing any contact sport such as football, field hockey, or wrestling and many of these school sports require mouthguards in order to play. However, you may be surprised to learn that non-contact sports can lead to dental injuries too. Even solo sports including gymnastics, tennis, and figure skating can lead to damaged teeth if they are not protected.

 

There Is An Option For Every Athlete

You will likely come across a variety of options when it comes to selecting a mouthguard. Most mouthguards can all be classified into three different categories.

 

Boil and Bite. These mouthguards are typically sold at any sporting goods store. In order to create a proper fit, you will first put them into boiling water and then bite into them while the plastic is moldable to form the shape of your mouth. When selecting this type of mouthguard, it’s vital to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance to ensure these materials are safe for your teeth.

 

Ready to Wear. Stock mouthguards are inexpensive and come ready to wear. That said, they often do not fit very well as they are purchased pre-formed. Particularly bulky, this type of mouthguard can also inhibit your breathing and talking while wearing.

 

Custom. When it comes to keeping your teeth safe and adequately cared for, the best option is a custom-made mouthguard. Cherrywood Dental Associates will simply take an impression of your teeth, which is then used to create a mouthguard made especially for you. While this option can be the most expensive choice, they are also built to protect your smile. Investing in this type of custom mouthguard now can save a significant amount of money in dental repairs should you get injured.

 

Mouthguards Are a Must For Orthodontic Patients

A custom-made mouthguard is particularly vital for those with braces and other orthodontic appliances. Mouthguards will be able to protect your brackets and wires, as well as your cheeks and lips, should a collision to the face occur. Braces patients will need a mouthguard that protects both the upper and lower teeth.

 

 

If You Take Proper Care of Your Mouthguard, It Will Take Proper Care of You

 

Investing in a custom-fit mouthguard is one of the best ways you can ensure your child’s teeth are protected while they’re playing the sport that they love. Take care of your investment and your mouthguard by:

 

  • Keeping your mouthguard clean while it’s not in use by rinsing it or brushing it with a toothbrush and toothpaste after wearing
  • Clean the mouthguard in cool, soapy water regularly
  • Bring your mouthguard to regular dental checkups to ensure a proper fit
  • Use a sturdy, ventilated container when not in use
  • Keep out of the sun
  • Store in a safe place away from tempted pets
  • Replace your mouthguard if it is showing signs of wear and tear

Keeping your teeth safe is our top priority! To get a custom-made mouthguard for your spring Woodbridge athlete, contact Cherrywood Dental Associates today to schedule an appointment!

 

 

Teething Symptoms and Treatments

Teething can be challenging for babies and parents, but there are several ways that parents can make teething easier on their babies. At Cherrywood Dental Associates, we make it a priority to provide new parents with an overview of what to expect from teething to provide their children with excellent dental care from the appearance of their first teeth!

When Do Babies Start Teething?

Most babies begin teething when they are between six and twelve months old. However, because babies are born with all twenty of their primary teeth, it is possible for babies’ teeth to begin to grow in before they are six months old. On average, the earliest you might notice the first signs of teething is when your baby is about four months old. Front teeth typically come in first, and the bottom front teeth are often the first to appear. Canine teeth follow the front teeth, and molars typically come in last.

Teething Symptoms

There are several signs of teething that parents may notice before teeth come through the gums. Some teething symptoms that are considered to be normal include:

  • Fussiness/irritability
  • Loss of appetite
  • Drooling
  • Trouble sleeping

Other symptoms, such as a rash or fever, may occur. However, these are not considered to be normal, and parents should consult a pediatrician if their teething baby has a persistent rash or fever.

Treatments for Teething

As a parent, it can be difficult to see babies experience the discomfort of teething, but there are several at-home remedies that parents can use to ease the teething symptoms. One of the best ways to soothe teething is to give your baby something cold to chew on, such as a wet washcloth, teething ring, or another teething toy, which can help to ease painful gums. Children’s Tylenol or ibuprofen can also be used if your baby is especially fussy, but medications should be used sparingly.

At Cherrywood Dental Associates, we care about helping you set your children’s teeth up for success by caring for their oral health from the appearance of the monumental first tooth. Contact us today to learn more about teething or to schedule your child’s first appointment!

Veneers and Lumineers May Help You Restore Your Smile

dental veneers on table and finger

Over time, the protective coating on your teeth, also known as enamel tends to begin to wear off. There are a variety of factors that contribute to the wearing of your enamel including the diet choices that you make to the drinks that you choose to consume. Habits such as grinding your teeth can also further add to enamel loss. Once enamel gets lost, it cannot get brought back.

However, there are alternatives to restoring your smile, even if you cannot have your full enamel restored. These options include both veneers and lumineers, which can be put over your teeth to help restore your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are porcelain pieces that were made to act similarly to enamel in the sense that it’s a fragile layer (about 0.02mm thick) that goes over your teeth. Veneers will instantly give you a brighter, whiter smile that reflects the light in all of the correct places. Your veneers get custom-made so that they match the color of your regular teeth as closely as possible.

Veneers have become a typical way to help do anything from brightening up your existing teeth to helping to repair chipped teeth that you wish to have looked more natural when you smile. While your teeth do have to be shaved down to help make up the difference in thickness between veneers and your regular teeth, the process is generally done with little to no Novocaine and is relatively painless.

What is the Difference Between Veneers and Lumineers?

Lumineers, just like veneers, are a fragile layer of porcelain that goes over the tooth to protect it and give it a newfound whiteness. However, lumineers are incredibly strong and are made to be durable and last the upwards of 20 years, or even more, assuming they are well-maintained. Their transparent material helps them look completely natural, and most people will not even notice that you are wearing these over your natural teeth.

These coverings also require no preparing of the teeth beforehand. If you ever decide you don’t like them or need them replaced after a couple of decades, that’s no issue as we can return them without any additional hassle to you.

Procedure

To put either veneers or lumineers, you happen to find yourself looking at a pretty basic process. There’s no preparation to the teeth before the veneers are put on.

However, if you are interested in other forms of veneers, it’s common that your teeth will need shaving into the correct shape before the veneers can get placed over your natural teeth. Different types of veneers require two appointments, one to shave the teeth down (to make room for the thickness of the veneers) and at the second appointment, the veneers get applied and stuck to your teeth with a special liquid gel so that a strong bond develops between both the tooth and the veneer that will get placed on it.

Longevity & Care

As long as you take care of your new veneers just like you would your regular teeth, veneers can last for decades and potentially the rest of your life. They were designed to endure the wear and use of your daily routines and can become as equally durable as your regular teeth. You still need to visit your dentist for regular cleanings and maintain a good brushing and flossing routine at home while also eating a healthy, balanced diet and avoiding unhealthy beverages that stain teeth or are loaded with sugar.

In these cases, veneers can make a significant long-term “fix” to chipped, stained, or otherwise damaged teeth.

Conclusions

At Cherrywood Dental Associates we are happy to help you determine if veneers are the right way to help you brighten up your smile. Please contact us via telephone at (703) 565-5078 for our Woodbridge, Virginia location or 301-982-3300 for our Greenbelt, Maryland location so that we can help you set up a consultation to get your veneers fitted today.

How Food and Drink Choices Impact Your Teeth

If you’re like most people, you try to eat nutritious foods to keep your body healthy. But, did you know that your food and drink choices can actually have a major impact on your teeth? In addition to staining and discoloration, the foods and drinks you consume can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, with a few minor diet changes, you can help ensure healthy teeth and gums.

What Foods Are Good for My Teeth?

Apples, celery, and carrots are not only great for your body, but they also help promote good oral health. These high-fiber foods help stimulate the salivary glands, which help guard against cavities. Dairy products like cheese, milk, and plain yogurt contain calcium, vitamin D, and phosphates, which are also good for your teeth.

What Foods Should I Avoid?

Any foods that contain high amounts of sugar are not good for your teeth. Especially when it comes to sticky foods like candy, it can be difficult to ensure your teeth are completely free of sugar, even after brushing. Chips, bread, and pasta are all as equally harmful to your teeth as candy because, when broken down, these foods turn to sugar. These sugars invite harmful bacteria, which then leads to cavities.

What Drinks Are Good for My Teeth?

You probably already know the many health benefits associated with drinking plenty of water. However, to help keep your teeth strong and healthy, make sure your drinking water includes fluoride. Both green and black teas can also help guard against tooth decay and gum disease.

What Drinks Should I Avoid?

Carbonated soft drinks and fruit juices contain high amounts of sugar that contribute to the harmful growth of bacteria. Harsh chemicals found in carbonated beverages, like soda, can wear away the enamel on your teeth, thus leaving your teeth exposed and susceptible to decay.

Making the right food and drink choices can have a significant impact on the health of your teeth and gums. At Cherrywood Dental Associates, we have the knowledge and expertise to help keep your mouth healthy. Contact us to schedule your comprehensive exam today.

Everything You Need to Know About Laser Dentistry

Before undergoing dental work, you may be considering treatment options that include laser dentistry. Although the practice has been around for some time and is known for offering a wide range of benefits, you may still be unclear about what it is and why it may be the best choice for you. In an effort to help you understand more about the technology and how it can benefit you, we’ve outlined some basic information about laser dentistry below.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

Potentially offering a more comfortable treatment option for a wide range of dental procedures, laser dentistry uses light energy to treat a variety of dental conditions. The laser allows for the safe and effective removal of tissue and can also be used to remove dead cells, infection, and decay.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Dentistry?

There’s no longer an excuse for not going to see your dentist. It’s a virtually pain-free option that often requires no anesthesia. In case that’s not enough of a reason to make the switch, we’ve listed even more benefits below.

  • Minimal damage to surrounding tissue
  • Reduced bleeding
  • Sutures often unnecessary
  • Faster healing time
  • Reduced risk of infection

What Procedures Can Use Laser Dentistry?

There are many ways in which laser dentistry can be used to treat dental and other conditions of the mouth. Most commonly, dental lasers are used to:

  • Treat and remove abscesses
  • Stop bleeding
  • Treat and remove canker sores
  • Treat periodontal disease
  • Re-contour the gums
  • Perform biopsies needed to identify oral cancer
  • Remove a frenulum or small fold of tissue that is preventing movement in the mouth

Is It Safe?

If you’re interested in laser dentistry, you may be wondering if it is safe. Fortunately, dental lasers are very safe. In fact, they can actually help make your dental procedure safer than with traditional dentistry because they allow us to be more precise and can reduce the risk of infection.

At Cherrywood Dental Associates, we take pride in offering our patients the right treatment options for their individual needs. For more information about laser dentistry or to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
