National Orthodontic Health Month

October is National Orthodontic Health Month! Sponsored by the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), this event is a month-long celebration of orthodontics. It is designed to bring awareness of the positive impact that orthodontic care can have on both long-term dental health and self-esteem. Throughout this month orthodontists, dentists, and other health professionals will be spreading the word about orthodontics and reminding everyone how important a straight smile is for your health!At Truman Orthodontics, Dr. Truman and our friendly team encourages our patients to maintain proper oral hygiene while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Throughout their time in our advanced, Las Vegas braces, our patients are reminded of how detrimental poor brushing and flossing habits can be, especially in conjunction with orthodontics.

Orthodontic Health Month & Halloween

As National Orthodontic Health Month also occurs in the same month as Halloween, we will be making sure that every patient is aware of the negative effects that eating Halloween goodies can have on your teeth with or without braces. Limiting the candy you eat, or at least the type of candy, can have a huge impact on your treatment.

Although we do not condone eating candy as it is bad for your oral health, if you are going to indulge this Halloween, be sure you are eating the types of treats that will not harm your braces. We recommend you steer clear of hard, crunchy, sticky, and gooey candy and snacks. If your braces do become damaged or break, there are some steps you should take to ensure that you do not hurt your braces or the inside of your mouth. If you are worried that you will not be able to enjoy Halloween treats because of your braces, last year we put together a blog with a few braces-friendly Halloween recipes so you can still indulge!
