Papandreas Orthodontics N Royalton Brunswick OH Back to schoolIt’s that time of year again! The temperature is cooling off, fall sports are underway, and all the kids are headed back to school. At Papandreas Orthodontics we want to offer a few helpful tips for going back to school with #braces!

  • Make sure to follow the 2×2 brushing rule: brush your teeth for TWO minutes, TWO times each day! This will help keep your teeth and #braces clean, which leads to quicker appointments and healthier teeth. If you want to brush after lunch, keep a toothbrush in your backpack.
  • Bring a water bottle to school. Drinking water throughout the day helps to keep your mouth clean, fight #cavities, and prevent bad breath. Stick with water and you can’t go wrong.Read more on Orthodontic Tips for Back to School in North Royalton and Brunswick OH…

And, contrary to belief or despite what you have heard, your speech sounds fine to others in a very short period of time once you get used to wearing the Invisalign aligner.Read more on Braces or Invisalign… That is the Question…

Results… not one on the 2011 “worst” list had lowered its sugar content over the last three years.
