October is National Orthodontic Health Month
September 26, 2016
October is Orthodontic Health Month! Orthodontists help millions of people worldwide every year, bringing people healthier smiles that they’re proud to show off. We love our patients at Smile Ranch, and believe we have the best in Dr. Jensen and his staff. Here’s a few reasons why orthodontists are important to our community, and a big THANK YOU to Dr. Jensen from some of his patients.
Orthodontic Treatment Prevents Health Problems
What’s the first thing you think of when you hear ‘braces’? If you thought straight teeth, you’re not alone. But orthodontic treatment isn’t just for aesthetic correction, but will improve your health, and even prevent health issues down the road. Your health starts in the mouth. Opting to not have orthodontic treatment could lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone destruction, and digestive track problems.
Our Smiling Patients
We love our patients at Smile Ranch. Every single person that comes through our door is important to us. Don’t believe us? Take a look at some of them.
When Should I See an Orthodontist?
In truth, every mouth is different, requiring different levels of care at different ages. We recommend that you bring your child in for a consultation at around age 7. We realize adult teeth have not grown in yet, but this allows us to check teeth for signs of movement and to discuss a treatment timetable if necessary. Plus, we have warm cookies! Give us a call today with any questions or to schedule a consultation.
