October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you are not a breast cancer survivor, chances are you know someone who has had breast cancer or is currently being treated for breast cancer. No one (including men, although breast cancer in men is till considered quite rare) is immune to breast cancer. You don't have to have a family history to get breast cancer. Sondhi Biggs Orthodontics supports the efforts in finding a cure for breast cancer.

October is National Orthodontic Health Month. Many treats can cause havoc for trick-or-treaters who are going through orthodontic treatment. These treats may cause damage that could prolong treatment time. The American Association of Orthodontists provides a list of tips and recipes for the Halloween Season at http://braces.org/NOHM/Press-Releases.cfm.

On Saturday, September 18, 2010, the 10th annual Answers for Autism Walk will take place. So far, over $40,000.00 in donations has been collected. The 1 mile walk will be held at Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana. In recent studies, as many as 1 out of every 90 babies born today will be on the autistic spectrum. Autism is now one of the most common developmental disorders. There is no known, or proven cure for Autism. Though various treatments may provide some children with relative relief, current research is limited, due to the lack of available funds.

With Fall just around the corner, remember to be careful with caramel apples and other Halloween treats that could damage orthodontic appliances. Damaged appliances could cause delays in treatment and unnecessary repair appointments. Have a great Fall!
