Teeth Safety Tips For Kids This Summer

by Office of Dr. Metcalf on Thursday, June 23, 2016 10:16 AM

We are always striving to be your choice when you are looking for an orthodontist in and around the Amherst, Hollis, and Nashua, NH areas. Drs. Metcalf and Bednarz specialize in a wide variety of orthodontic treatments that include many different types of braces and also the alternative to braces, Invisalign. Whether you are undergoing orthodontic treatment or not, maintaining an optimal level of dental health is important for all kids. One of the most common things a child will do over summer vacation is play sports. While we would never want to discourage any kids from participating in recreational activities, sports are accompanied by inherent risks to your dental health. There is a remedy to this, though. While playing sports this summer break, we want to encourage all children to wear a mouth guard.

Every day, we help our patients achieve beautiful smiles, and nothing makes us happier than seeing the look on a patient's face when they see their gorgeous new smile.

Here at Orthodontic Associates of New England, we are proud to provide Invisalign, which is a very innovative orthodontic treatment option that has become popular among teenagers and adults due to its many benefits. The series of aligners used with Invisalign are removable and are made of a clear plastic material that makes them virtually invisible, hence the name. If the idea of wearing metal or clear braces that show is something you would rather avoid, you may be interested in finding out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign!

Drs. Metcalf and Bednarz and the whole team at our office are proud to provide the Nashua, New Hampshire area with a comprehensive selection of orthodontic care options, including metal braces, Invisalign, Incognito braces, and our very popular clear ceramic braces.
