Back to School With Braces

Back to School With Braces
Posted on 08/27/2020

It's that time of year again!  Summer is winding down and school will soon be back in session - online, in the classroom, or maybe a little of both.  Many children, teens, and teachers started their orthodontic journey over the summer.  As you begin to prepare for the new school year, be sure to keep new orthodontic appliances in mind.  It's important to keep up on good oral hygiene! The bag given to each of our patients at the start of treatment can be great for the backpack or locker.

 Add these things to your school supply checklist:

  • Toothbrush
  • Christmas tree toothbrushes (interproximal brush)
  • Toothpaste
  • Floss/flossers
  • Orthodontic wax
  • Elastics/rubberbands
  • Retainer/Invisalign case - to prevent throwing away retainers or Invisalign trays in the lunchroom! 
  • Braces-friendly lunch foods and drinks

Running low on supplies?  We have you covered!  Just ask an assistant at your next appointment and we will be happy to give you the supplies needed to keep your smile happy and healthy!  Have a great school year!!
