It’s that time of year again: school is back in session, and students are gearing up for a ynew year, new subjects, new teachers and classmates.

Robert Sunstein D.D.S.

In recent years, child health advocates have made great strides in promoting increased activity levels and better eating habits to combat childhood obesity rates; but while fresh, wholesome meals and physical exercise are vital components for optimal health, so too are regular dental and orthodontic check-ups for kids of all ages.

The Los Angeles Times reports that, as of 2008, over 1 million adult men and women were wearing braces; and thanks to a combination of trends including improved orthodontic insurance coverage rates and an increased desire to enhance physical appearance, that number may well continue to rise.
