Back to school with braces?

Tips for taking care of your braces at school

Summer is winding down and a new school year has started. Many of our patients are going back to school with braces on for the first time this week. At EMBRACE ORTHODONTICS, our team has prepared a few helpful tips that will make caring for your braces at school a breeze!

  • Follow the 2×2 brushing rule: brush your teeth for 2 minutes, 2 times per day. It’s also a good idea to keep an extra toothbrush in your back pack to brush after lunch for extra clean teeth. Remember, clean teeth make for faster appointments and healthier teeth.
  • Keep bottled water in your back pack. Drinking water keeps your mouth clean, helps fight cavities and promotes overall good oral health.
  • Keep a bag of elastics in your backpack and locker. Elastics are key to moving teeth during treatment and not wearing them can prolong your treatment time.
  • Check the school lunch menu online every weekend to plan ahead for meals. Pack healthy snacks like yogurt, smoothies and hard boiled eggs. Avoid foods that are hard, crunchy or chewy to prevent bending wires or knocking off brackets. Remember, damage to your braces can increase the time of your treatment.

We wish you all the best in the upcoming school year. If you have any questions on caring for your braces or are considering improving your smile with orthodontics, call Embrace Orthodontics for a FREE consultation.

The end of the year brings you good news!

Are you considering braces for yourself or a family member? The end of the year is a great time to get braces or to plan for them in the new year.

Two Reasons Why the End of Year Is Good for Orthodontic Treatment

The end of the year may leave you thinking of ways to spend unused portions of your flexible spending account (FSA). Since FSA balances are a ‘use it or lose it’ commodity, we encourage families to make the most of them before December 31st. If orthodontic treatment or braces is on your mind, this is a great way to take advantage of your FSA balance.

The end of the year is also a great time to plan for orthodontics treatment by exploring all of your health and dental options during open enrollment. Make an appointment for a free evaluation and treatment plan including exact costs in order to plan accurately for next year.
