Today is Toothache Day: a day dedicated to something none of us enjoy. Although a toothache isn’t something to celebrate, our team at TNT Orthodontics would like to use today as an opportunity to educate you about how toothaches form and how you can avoid them.
It’s November, which means Thanksgiving is around the corner, which means Black Friday will be here before you know it. Despite not being as big of a deal in recent years, Black Friday still marks the start of major holiday savings. We want to make sure you can get those bargains without being disappointed, so here are seven ways to stay safe and shop smart during your 2017 holiday shopping.
It’s October and you know what that means: It’s Halloween!! We love Halloween here at TNT Orthodontics, getting to dress up as spooky/kooky characters is always a blast (and we love seeing our patients’ costumes). But Halloween also means lots of candy is being passed out, which can present some problems for our patients with braces. Never fear! You can still indulge in all the sugary goodness this Halloween, you just have to be careful of what sweets you consume.
October is National Orthodontic Health Month. TNT Orthodontics spends this month working to increase awareness among our patients of the positive impact orthodontic care has on their oral health and self-esteem! More than 1.2 million American adults are currently sporting braces, so let’s dive into some facts about orthodontics and how it does more than simply give you a better smile.
At TNT Orthodontics, it’s our job to care about our patients’ oral health. Did you know that your eating patterns and food choices affect your oral health? Well, school is back in session and for many college students that means long days, late night cramming sessions, and getting back to a (not-so-healthy) diet of ramen noodles and pizza.
Fall semester is right around the corner and many kids are gearing up to go back to school. Returning to school is an exciting time for most kids. However, for students who recently got their braces the return to school can be a stressful time. Students with new braces are going back to school wondering what the other students may think and say about them on top of having to make some serious changes to their daily routines.
Kids as young as seven can start getting that perfect smile, but not every child is excited about getting braces. At TNT Orthodontics, we know that children can be nervous about undergoing orthodontic treatment. We also know that a positive outlook and preparedness help the entire orthodontic process go more smoothly, and your kid will be more likely to actively care for their new braces.
