National Facial Protection Month

April is National Facial Protection Month. This is a good time to remind patients that it is important to use a mouthguard during recreational activities. Mouthguards, which typically cover the upper teeth, can cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth. A properly fitted mouthguard will stay in place making it easier for users to talk and breathe while they are wearing it. Special mouthguards are made to be used during orthodontic treatment. Special mouthguards are made to be used during orthodontic treatment. Please feel free to contact anyone on our Sondhi-Biggs team to find out what type of mouthguard would be appropriate for you. Have a safe Spring!

It's never too late...

As an adult, you may think you're too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment, but truth is, you are never too old. We often hear "Do you have many adult patients?" and the answer to that question is "Yes". Adult patients make up a significant percentage of our patient base. Many orthodontic problems can be corrected as easily for adults as for children. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. There are many options available today that can minimize the appearance of braces. New techniques and materials make wearing braces more comfortable now than ever before. Sondhi-Biggs Orthodontics is on the cutting edge of new technology, just one more reason why we are "Smiles Above the Rest".
