Braces Facts

May 12th, 2016

Some interesting Braces Facts!

Braces go WAY back :)

Braces have been around for a long time – with the first design being created in 1728. But due to huge advancements in technology and materials, today’s teeth straightening systems are super comfortable and efficient – some are practically invisible thanks to Invisalign’s Clear Aligners.

The Science Connection

Did you know that some wires used in orthodontic cases were developed by NASA – the wires have a shape memory so they won’t become distorted due to body heat and/or pressure.

Lighnting Isn't a Concern


Braces don’t increase your odds of being hit by lightning! Braces aren’t magnetic and won’t set-off any metal detectors.

Age is not a factor

You are never too old to wear orthodontic braces. Adult orthodontic patients make up a large segment of the population straightening their teeth. It’s never too late to have the smile you’ve always dreamed of.


Something to Think About..


100% of Orthodontists are Dentists – but only 5% of Dentists are Orthodontists. Having a consultation with a Certified Orthodontist in enables you to get a complete and accurate diagnosis from someone trained to deal specifically with malocclusion and other bite and skeletal issues.

Wear Those Retainers


Nearly 25% of orthodontic patients have to repeat treatment because they failed to wear their retainer as instructed by an orthodontist!

What Makes us Smile


Want to know what makes an Orthodontist smile – You wearing your retainer.

We are Proud Sponsors!

Lip Balm - Great Tip for Patients with Braces!

April 18th, 2016

Got Braces? Don't Forget this!

Lip balm is a great tip for anyone in braces. It helps soothe dry lips, which is especially important if you're suffering from a cold, or living in dry and/or cold places.

April 14th, 2016

have aligners. Images below show you what can happen. #themoreyouknow #londonontarioorthodontist

Patient Review of Our Orthodontic Office

April 6th, 2016

Another great review from one of our patients:

"I had braces for just over two years, but my teeth are amazingly straight now! My bite feels spectacular and I absolutely love my smile.

Questions You Should Ask Before Getting Braces

March 7th, 2016

When considering orthodontic care for yourself or a family member it can feel overwhelming and you may not be sure what questions to ask. You should know that not all dental practitioners are created equal. Some specialize in different areas of care. Orthodontists receive additional university training, education and certification in their field of expertise. Many practitioners who provide orthodontic treatment do not have additional orthodontic training from an accredited university, yet they still may refer to themselves as an orthodontist. We believe you should be informed when deciding who you will chose to do your orthodontic work.

The attached image contains a list of questions to consider when looking for an orthodontic provider.

As always our team is ready to answer any questions you may have.

Many people are misinformed when it comes to orthodontic providers and treatment. Please help us spread the word and share this blog post with your friends and family.

February 11th, 2016

Trick or Treat!!

October 21st, 2014

Trick-or-treating time is almost here!!! We love Halloween at our office.  Our team would like to remind all our patients to be careful when they enjoy those yummy Halloween treats this month! Although those sweet, sour, and sticky candies may taste great,  these treats are known to damage teeth, as well as break braces, as well as delay your treatment time!

Hard candies, chewy candies, caramels, taffy, nutty goodies, jelly beans, bubble gum, suckers, and sour candies are just some of the foods that can cause havoc for trick-or-treaters who are undergoing orthodontic treatment. Not sure what you CAN enjoy? Try some of these alternatives to the hard crunchy candies that would normally enjoy this time of year.

  • Soft chocolate
  • Peanut butter cups
  • Gelatin treats
  • Ice cream
  • Smoothies
  • Root beer floats

Still looking for other braces-friendly options?  We recommend cutting up easy-to-eat fruits and vegetables such as an apple or banana. These foods can help curb your craving for sugary sweet treats.

We know trick-or-treating is something looked forward to by many of our patients and families. We don’t want you to miss out on all the fun, treats and excitement. We just encourage our patients wearing orthodontic braces and orthodontic appliances to brush and floss between teeth immediately after enjoying your treats. Your braces will thank you, as well as your orthodontic team!!!

Regular Checkups with Your Dentist

October 16th, 2014

There is nothing "cute" about gingivitis. Be sure to visit your dentist regularly while you are in braces for regular checkups and cleanings. We work closely with your dentist to ensure a great outcome at the end of your treatment. If you have any questions about the frequency of dental visits while in braces, be sure to ask our staff next time your in the office.

We have the best patients!

September 23rd, 2014

We have the best patients. Thank you for the kind words K.S.

"Because of Dr. Rojas I now have an outstanding amount of confidence when I smile. I'm so thankful daily for the amazing work he did for me. I'd recommend his work to anyone seeking a brighter smile!"

Team Building at Canada's First Ever 5km Foam Fest!

July 22nd, 2014

Our office participated in the first ever FOAM FEST 5KM in Canada on July 19th at Boler Mountain! We had team shirts that let everyone know we go "From Braces to Foam Races." From the "body washer" to the "death drop" slide our team stuck together and crossed the finish line together! Lots of laughs and support through the day. A great time was had by all and we hope to make this an annual event.

Here are a few pics of our day! For the full album check out our Facebook Page.

Help us reach our goal!

July 7th, 2014

We are back from holidays! Just a reminder that we are running our "Let's Can Hunger" Food Bank campaign throughout the summer. Our goal is to collect 300 items for the Food bank. All patients who bring in a donation will be awarded 2 Smile Miles per visit. Let's come together and "Can Hunger." The need for the food bank during the summer is just as crucial as any other time of year. Every little bit helps.

Summer is here! Summer foods to avoid with braces!

July 2nd, 2014

Summer time foods to avoid with braces!

Getting the most from your orthodontic treatment means temporarily altering your diet to ensure you do not break brackets, bend wires which could in turn increase the time you may spend in braces. The day braces go on our staff would have reviewed foods you can and cannot eat with braces. With summer here and barbeques and many other types of activities happening you may forget some big “no no” foods with braces. Please take a look at our list and try to avoid these foods. Your braces with thank you!

Corn on the cob (you CAN cut the corn off the cob and enjoy)

ICE

Uncooked vegetables such as carrots, celery

Apples! No biting into apples, if you would like to enjoy simply cut into bit size pieces

Popcorn

Hard Candy, Gum etc.

It’s not just the hard, crunchy foods you should avoid. Sweet sugary drinks can cause sugar to build up beneath the braces and cause tooth decay, it is best to avoid these types of drinks.

We are not asking you to give up all your favourite things; we just ask you make some necessary adjustments to ensure the brackets remain in place. Broken brackets can increase treatment time and we want to reveal your perfect smile as soon as possible!

Meet Josh Our Patient With a Cause!

May 25th, 2014

Josh Pritchard - Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Gutsy Walk

Joshua was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease one week before Christmas 2011 at the age of 8.  He had lost weight, was very lethargic, looked pale and had stomach pains. For almost 2 years it was a constant battle with daily medication and vitamins to try and make Joshua feel good enough to get through the day. It wasn't working, he wasn't growing at all. Then we tried yet another medication.  I am happy to say that these last 6 months Joshua has been feeling really good. You can see it in his passion for hockey thismpast winter. He didn't miss one practice or game this past season due to his disease. He gave it his all.

Joshua's doctors at the Children’s Hospital have him spend all day, every 8 weeks, in the hospital for an IV infusion of medication. He misses a day of school but it does have a positive effect. This can be a long term medication he will have to take to keep him feeling good but only if his body agrees to it. In return, there are always possible side effects that may occur in the future. This is why WE NEED TO FIND A CURE and we are turning to all of you.

Joshua and his team have walked the last 2 years in the Gutsy Walk and on Sunday, June 8th, 2014 Joshua and his team will be participating at the “Crohn’s and Colitis Canada’s Gutsy Walk” again. These much-needed funds that are raised will support critical research and education to find cures for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. This cause is very important, so check out Joshua's link and be GUTSY.

Canada has one of the highest rates for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in the world and those rates are increasing.

Most alarming, the number of new cases of Crohn’s Disease in Canadian children has almost doubled since 1995.

Crohn's and colitis are lifelong diseases that can have a devastating impact on quality of life, elevate the risk of colorectal cancer, and in the case of Crohn’s Disease, shorten life expectancy.

Cold or Flu Recently?

January 22nd, 2014

If the flu bug or cold bug have caught you lately, be sure to replace your toothbrush!
The American Dental American Association of Orthodontists also recommends the following toothbrush care tips:

• Replace your toothbrush at least every 3-4 months or when the bristles are frayed or worn.

• Always replace your toothbrush after a cold or flu.

• Rinse your toothbrush with water to remove toothp...aste and debris after each use, and store upright to air-dry.

• Never cover the toothbrush or place in a closed container while still wet, as this will allow for the growth of more bacteria.

• If you or a family member has been ill, be sure to throw away your old toothbrush and get a new one to avoid re-contaminating yourself with germs every time you brush.

• Never store household members’ toothbrushes together in a drawer or cabinet.



Braces are off, now what?

January 9th, 2014


Your braces are coming off and you couldn’t be happier! To maintain that beautiful smile wearing a retainer is key. Your retainer, just as your orthodontic treatment is customized to you. Full retainer instructions will be give the day you receive your retainers. These retainers must be worn which must be worn routinely after treatment in order to hold your teeth in their proper, new position while your gums, ligaments and bones adapt. Our office uses different types of retainers, the most commonly used ones are explained below.

Essix (Clear) Retainers

The Essix retainer is a transparent retainer commonly used retainer in our office. It is a removable retainer that fits over the entire arch of your teeth and is made by taking impressions of your teeth once your braces are removed. Essix retainers look very similar to Invisalign’s clear aligner trays. These retainers are removed when eating and to be brushed/cleaned when performing your regular oral hygiene routine.


Bonded Retainers

Bonded lingual retainers are cemented directly to the inside surface of your lower canines or in some cases your upper teeth, depending on your initial orthodontic problem. As with removable retainers, it is important to keep your bonded retainers clean. When brushing, make sure to carefully clean the inside of your lower teeth, as well as the wire itself. Our staff will instruct you on how to floss this area properly the day your bonded retainer is placed.


Hawley Retainers

The Hawley retainer is one of the most common types of retainers. It is a removable retainer made of a combination of a metal wire that typically surrounds the six anterior teeth and is designed to keep your teeth in place. This retainer is made from impressions of your teeth so that it fits snugly and comfortably in the roof of your mouth, while the wire and acrylic framing keeps your teeth in an ideal position. These retainers are removed when eating and to be brushed/cleaned when performing your regular oral hygiene routine.


If you have any questions about the retainers we offer or to learn more about post-orthodontic treatment please feel free to give our office a call and we will be happy to answer any of your questions. 1-800-920-9798

#1 Worst Food For Your Teeth?? Saltine Crackers????

October 23rd, 2013

Can anyone guess the #1 worst food for your teeth? It's not candy, not chocolate but rather saltine crackers! Check out this link for all the details!

http://www.sheknows.com/health-and-wellness/articles/983591/saltines-are-worst-food-for-your-teeth

HELP! I have braces and I don't know what to eat!

October 22nd, 2013

HELP!!! What can I eat with braces??

The best foods to eat with braces are those that are not high in sugar and do not require excessive chewing. For breakfast, try eggs, yogurt, bacon, cottage cheese or oatmeal. Lunch may steer toward a banana rather than an apple, soft sandwich, soup or a salad without nuts, and a glass of water. Avoid fruit juices and pop as these are very acidic.

Post Adjustment Foods

After an adjustment occurs, the teeth may be sore and sensitive for a day or two. During this time, it is best to eat soft foods. Examples include:

  • Pudding
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Soup
  • Ice cream
  • Cottage cheese
  • Pancakes
  • Pasta

Foods to Avoid

According to the American Dental Association, anyone who wears braces – whether fixed or removable – should avoid excessive snacking and should aim to eat a healthy and balanced diet. It is also important to avoid foods that could cause damage to the braces, such as:

  • Hard candies
  • Gum
  • Nuts
  • Popcorn
  • Certain raw vegetables (for example, carrots)
  • Crusty bread

No matter what you eat with braces it is important to keep the crevices between the teeth and around the braces very clean. That means brushing and flossing after meals to prevent the build-up of plaque and decay. Not only can failing to do so damage the teeth, but it can also cause discoloration.

Over the counter pain medication can be used to help with any discomfort you may have after your adjustment appointment. Sometimes, taking over the counter pain medication before your adjustment appointment may help as well.

If you have any concerns or questions about foods to avoid please do not hesitate to contact our office. 1-800-920-9798 or visit our website www.londonbraces.com

Pennies for Water!

June 20th, 2013

Dr. Baby, Dr. Rojas and team would like to bring awareness to a cause that the office has supported for many years, “The Waterschool”.

When we run our tap to brush our teeth, for a glass of water, or to a fill up a pot to boil your pasta, we don’t always think about the people of developing countries who do not have that luxury. Many people in rural areas and in developing countries draw their drinking water mainly from surface sources such as ponds, rivers and lakes. These same sources are used by cattle and other livestock and for bathing, washing clothes and other domestic uses.  Even when improved sources are provided (bore holes, rain water harvesting, etc.), the water is usually contaminated during collection, transportation and storage. The Waterschool educates the people of this by using a three step process which ensures clean water through existing agencies in the beneficiary area. The Waterschool is currently working in Uganda and Kenya and has worked in Haiti in the past.

Over the summer months our office will be collecting pennies in support of this cause. All penny donations will be matched by the doctors and donated to The Waterschool and its initiatives. It is amazing; a $10 donation can help provide clean water to one child for a LIFETIME!

All three of our office locations are happy to take pennies that you may have laying around off your hands. Water jugs will be set up at each office location for this purpose. Please remember every penny helps! Our office is open to the public to bring in their pennies, not just our patients and families so please spread the word! You can also help by donating any current Smiles Miles to this cause. If you would like to donate your Smile Miles please email Tricia tricia@londonbraces.com for further information.

For more information on The Waterschool please follow the link provided. http://www.waterschool.com/

This is a great video that shows what the Waterschool is about and the wonderful work it does. http://us.cnn.com/video/?/video/world/2009/09/01/mckenzie.sun.water.cnn

What is a Malocclusion??

March 26th, 2013

Malocclusion of the teeth is a term frequently used at our office. Ever wonder what the orthodontist or another staff member means when using this term? Malocclusion simply means the teeth are not aligned properly.

Malocclusion is most often hereditary, which means the condition is passed down through families. There may be a difference between the size of the upper and lower jaws or between jaw and tooth size, resulting in overcrowding of teeth or in abnormal bite patterns.

Other causes of malocclusion include:

  • Childhood habits such as thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, pacifier use beyond age 3, and prolonged use of a bottle
  • Extra teeth, lost teeth, impacted teeth, or abnormally shaped teeth
  • Ill-fitting dental fillings or crowns
  • Misalignment of jaw fractures after a severe injury
  • Tumors of the mouth and jaw

When it comes to malocclusion there are different categories;

  • Class 1 malocclusion is the most common. The bite is normal, but the upper teeth slightly overlap the lower teeth.
  • Class 2 malocclusion, also called overbite, occurs when the upper jaw and teeth severely overlap the bottom jaw and teeth.
  • Class 3 malocclusion, also called underbite, occurs when the lower jaw protrudes or juts forward, causing the lower jaw and teeth to overlap the upper jaw and teeth.

Some symptoms of malocclusion include;

  • Abnormal alignment of teeth
  • Abnormal appearance of the face
  • Difficulty or discomfort when biting or chewing
  • Speech difficulties (rare) including lisp
  • Mouth breathing

By treating moderate or severe malocclusion, the teeth are easier to clean and there is less risk of tooth decay and periodontal diseases (gingivitis or periodontitis). Treatment eliminates strain on the teeth, jaws, and muscles, which lessens the risk of breaking a tooth and may reduce symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorders.

The goal at our office is to correct the positioning of the teeth with braces or other appliances.

It's National Orthodontic Health Month - Here are Some Tips to Keep Your Braces Clean!!

October 4th, 2012

It's National Orthodontic Health Month and we want to make sure you braces are as clean and as shiny as they can be! Here are some great tips on keeping those braces sparkling!!

One tooth at a time. When you brush, take time with each individual tooth – at least 10 seconds each – and pay careful attention to the spots where your teeth touch your braces.

It’s all about the angles. Brush the tops of your teeth and braces with your brush angled down toward where they meet. Brush the bottoms of your teeth and braces with your brush angled up.

The tooth, the whole tooth, nothing but the tooth. While the front surface of your teeth may seem like the most logical to clean, it’s equally important to clean the inner surface of your teeth (tongue side) as well as the chewing surface. And be sure to clean along your gum line – a key spot for plaque buildup.

Step 1: eat, step 2: clean. While you’re in treatment, it’s important to brush after every meal. Bits of food can easily get caught between braces and teeth, and these food bits interact with bacteria in your mouth to cause decay. The longer food is in contact with your teeth, the greater opportunity for plaque to form. If you are eating somewhere that you can’t brush, thoroughly rinse your mouth with water.

Always be prepared. The easiest way to be sure you can brush after every meal is to get in the habit of taking a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss with you wherever you go. Designate a special container just for your teeth-cleaning tools and keep it in your purse, backpack, or laptop case.

Remove the moving parts. If you have elastic bands or headgear, remove these parts before you brush or floss.

Fluoride is your friend. Fluoride helps prevent cavities. Be sure to brush with fluoride toothpaste, and rinse with fluoride mouthwash.

Interproximal brushes (sometimes called proxa brushes or interdental brushes) are cone-shaped and come in very handy for reaching spots around your braces that standard brushes can’t.

Find the floss for you. Regular floss works for some patients, but others find it easier to work with a floss threader, which helps you get the floss into tight places. Other patients like an all-in-one product called Superfloss, which comes with a stiff end for easy threading, a spongy section for cleaning wide spaces, and regular floss for narrow spaces.

Make time for the pros. It’s your job to take care of the everyday cleaning. But make sure to visit your dentist regularly while in treatment, to get the deep, thorough cleaning that only a professional can provide.

Orthodontic Emergency? We can help!

June 19th, 2012

True orthodontic emergencies are very rare, but when they do occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call the office when you experience severe pain or when you have a painful appliance problem that you can't take care of yourself. We’ll be able to schedule an appointment with our office.
You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to temporarily solve many problems yourself until you get in to see us…

The following solutions may help you relieve your discomfort:

Poking Wire: Using a pencil eraser, push the poking wire down or place wax on it to alleviate the discomfort.
Loose Bracket or Band: If your bracket or band is still attached to the wire, you should leave it in place and put wax on it. If the wire comes out entirely, wrap the bracket with a tissue.
Loose Wire: Using a tweezers, try to place your wire back into place. If doing this and using wax does not help, as a last resort use a small fingernail clipper to clip the wire behind the last tooth to which it is securely fastened. If your discomfort continues, place wax on it.
Loose Appliance: If your appliance is poking you, place wax on the offending part of your appliance.
Headgear Does Not Fit: Sometimes headgear discomfort is caused by not wearing the headgear as instructed by your orthodontist. Please refer to the instructions provided by your orthodontist. If the facebow is bent, please call our office for assistance. Surprisingly, headgear becomes more comfortable the more it's worn, so be sure you’re getting in the prescribed hours.
General Soreness: When you get your braces on, you may feel general soreness in your mouth and teeth may be tender to biting pressures for three to five days. This can be relieved by rinsing your mouth with a warm salt water mouthwash. Dissolve one teaspoonful of salt in 8 ounces of warm water, and rinse your mouth vigorously. If the tenderness is severe, take aspirin or whatever you normally take for headache or similar pain.
Remember, after alleviating your discomfort, it is still very important that you call our office as soon as possible to schedule a time to repair the problem.

Creating Aspiring Orthodontists, by Drs. Baby and Rojas

July 20th, 2009

To celebrate Oral Health Month, Drs. Baby and Rojas had some JK/SK students from a nearby school come and learn about what to expect when they visit an orthodontic office. They arrived by bus all bundled up ready to learn. The had a chance to tour all the rooms of our office and participate in a fun activity at each station.

They got to try on gloves and masks, were shown how the chairs and special lights work, saw what braces looks like and finished it all off with some airbrushed tattoos. The pictures say a thousand words, you can tell these kids had a great time. Our Kids Day 2009 was a huge success; We may have even inspired some future orthodontists!
