Ways to Celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month From Innovative Orthodontic Centers

By: Innovative Orthodontic Centers
NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Oct. 17, 2023 - PRLog -- October is National Orthodontic Health Month, a great reason for the Naperville, IL, orthodontists at Innovative Orthodontic Centers to highlight five ways to keep orthodontic health top of mind this month.

1. Smile Proud on Social Media

Snap a smiling selfie and show off those braces or clear aligners. Include the hashtag #NationalOrthodonticHealthMonth and join with other braces and clear aligner wearers in celebrating healthier, happier smiles.

2. Level Up On Oral Health

National Orthodontic Health Month is a great opportunity to level up on oral health. After all, diligent oral hygiene contributes to keeping treatment on-track, without interruptions from cavities or fillings. How to boost oral hygiene while wearing the modern, self-ligating braces or Invisalign® offered at Innovative Orthodontic Centers? Add a fluoride mouthwash, switch to an electric toothbrush or water flosser, or eat healthier for stronger teeth and gums.

3. Restock The Orthodontics To-Go Kit

Whether at school, work, or activities, a dental and orthodontic to-go kit helps keep teeth and appliances in tip-top shape all the time. Restock anything that's missing including a travel-sized toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, dental floss or interdental picks. With braces, pack orthodontic wax, a compact mirror, and tissues. With clear aligners, a storage case is a must for meal times.

4. Schedule A First Orthodontic Appointment

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends taking a child for an orthodontic evaluation around age seven. At this age, orthodontic issues can be detected by an expert orthodontist like Dr. Ibrahim or Dr. Gin. And parents can get a heads up as to future orthodontics.

Initial consultations are complimentary at Chicagoland's award-winning orthodontic practice, Innovative Orthodontic Centers. The team was also recently named "Best Orthodontic Practice" in Naperville Magazine's Best of Naperville 2023, a vote of confidence from Naperville and Shorewood, IL families.

5. Take It Easy On The Candy

Sweet treats abound since October is also Halloween. But as everyone knows, too much sugar on teeth can cause tooth decay and cavities. So American Board-certified Naperville and Shorewood, IL orthodontists, Dr. Manal Ibrahim (https://www.innovativeorthocenters.com/dr-manal-ibrahim/) and Dr. Christine Gin (https://www.innovativeorthocenters.com/dr-christine-gin/), as well as dentist Dr. Adri Moyano (https://www.innovativeorthocenters.com/dr-adri-moyano/), recommend enjoying sweet treats in moderation. Another tip? Swish water after eating candy to help remove sticky plaque. Follow with  brushing and flossing about 30 minutes later.


At Innovative Orthodontic Centers (https://www.innovativeorthocenters.com), Dr. Manal Ibrahim and Dr. Christine Gin are leaders in comfortable, accelerated orthodontics. They're among the top providers of Invisalign and SureSmile® prescription braces wires in the world. By pairing these custom, state-of-the-art treatments with a technology-led approach, they help patients get better results more quickly and conveniently without cutting corners.
