Happy New Year, from all of us at Hart Orthodontics

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

The year is almost over, so we wanted to ask what was memorable about 2011 for you, and what are you looking forward to in 2012? Do you have a new year’s resolution, or any exciting plans for the coming year?

Have a safe and happy New Year, from Hart Orthodontics

Beware of those holiday goodies!

Monday, December 19th, 2011

At Hart Orthodontics, we know maintaining a healthy diet over the holiday season can prove a difficult task. After all, who can resist the tasty treats of Christmas? With grandma and everybody else offering you candy, chocolate logs or Christmas pudding, you just can’t say “I’ll pass” each time. But trouble lurks: every time you chow down on that chocolate or candy, the bacteria in your mouth have a feast on the sugar—at your expense. The sugar turns into acid, and the acid eats away at the enamel on your teeth and between your braces. Then, you start getting cavities.

Instead, try fudgy cocoa bites, marvelous molasses cookies, wonderful waffles or other braces-friendly recipes, courtesy of the American Association of Orthodontics, or AAO, and “The Braces Cookbook” by Pamela Waterman.

If you must indulge in chocolaty goodness this Christmas or holiday season, remember to brush your teeth after eating sugary treats. Hope this helps! Give us a call if you have any questions!

Happy Holidays!

A few helpful webisodes about orthodontics, from Hart Orthodontics

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Dr. Partick Hart and our team at Hart Orthodontics would like to point you to a few interesting webisodes about orthodontics, located on the YouTube page of the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.

There, they tend to post some very pertinent videos about orthodontic treatment, as well as state-of-the-art technology in orthodontia. These include “Orthodontic Treatment Basics,” “Common Bite Problems Seen in Children” and “Does My Child Need Braces?”

We think you may find these webisodes interesting, as well as enlightening. If you have any questions about the videos, or your treatment here at Hart Orthodontics, please give us a call.
