Mt Pleasant Orthodontist Celebrates National Orthodontic Health Month
We just love when October comes around. Not only are we getting excited about the cooler weather and Dr. Kelley’s Birthday but we also get to celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month! During October, orthodontists all over the country work together to promote their services and inform the community about the important work we do.
National Orthodontic Health Month is an awareness campaign created cooperatively by orthodontists and other dental health professionals. During this month, we make a special effort to promote dental health and orthodontic health in particular.
Dr. Kelley’s staff in Mt. Pleasant, SC want to share some of our favorite orthodontic tips and tricks with you!
- To prevent delays in treatment wear your rubber bands as instructed by your orthodontist. Remember, the less you wear them the longer you will have to wear them. This may prolong your treatment time.
- Soaking your retainers or clear aligners in peroxide for a few minutes once a week will keep them looking like new.
- Check out this electric toothbrush from Philips, we just love it!
