October is National Orthodontic Health Awareness Month! Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with teeth and jaw irregularities, like overbites and underbites. If you’ve had braces before, then you know all about correcting these issues.
If you are looking to keep a healthy smile through this Halloween season, be sure to avoid sticky and hard candies as much as possible (especially if you have braces). We understand that Halloween is a special exception. Our best tip is to eat candy and other sugary foods with meals or shortly after mealtime. Saliva production increased when you eat and helps cancel out acids and rinse away food particles.
