Back to school is a great time for braces – and to study up on better oral hygiene for the whole family

Robert Sunstein | La Jolla Orthodontist

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. Incidentally, there’s no better time to get kids started with braces – and to remind them of the most important dental hygiene practices to keep teeth and gums healthy all year long.

Orthodontics scholarship helps students achieve academic goals and optimal health

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. Oral health is fundamentally linked to overall health: and with this in mind, it is important to educate children from an early age about the importance of oral hygiene and corrective orthodontics – and to integrate the idea of healthy teeth and gums into the academic environment.

Technological advances boost aesthetics, efficiency for adult braces

San Diego orthodontist La Jolla

Smile-correcting orthodontic devices have never been synonymous with high-style; but now, advances in technology and aesthetic design are bringing adult braces into the mainstream – and making them more visually appealing as well. 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.
