Questions on what "tracking" means in relation to your Invisalign treatment. This article also contains 5 helpful answers to questions you may have about your Invisalign treatment! Check it out!

STORE YOUR ALIGNERS IN THEIR CASE
We highly suggest keeping your aligners in their case to prevent losing them. Keeping them in their case reduces the risk of throwing them away, or allowing easy access for your pet to turn them into a chew toy. (Which they love)
BRUSH YOUR TEETH AFTER MEALS AND SNACKS
Brushing after every meal or snack will prevent your aligners from smelling and tasting like food. And remember, never eat or drink anything but water with your aligners still inside your mouth.
EXERCISE YOUR ALIGNERS - CHEWIES
Be sure to ask our team members for chewies if they haven’t given them to you already. We suggest chewing on them for 10-15 minutes each day. This chewing exercise helps keep your trays in line and molded to your teeth.
REMIND YOURSELF TO PUT YOUR ALIGNERS BACK IN YOUR MOUTH USING TIMERS
Treatment may be prolonged if patients forget to continually place their aligners back in after a meal or snack. A timer may help you remember to put your aligners back in after eating.

Invisalign allows the freedom to eat what you want when you want with ease. But did you know that when wearing Invisalign trays you should not drink hot liquids or carbonated beverages. Hot liquids can cause warping of your trays. Coffee and tea may also stain your aligners. We also strongly advise against drinking carbonated beverages while wearing your Invisalign trays. These trays can trap sugar or acidic fluids around your teeth leading to decay. Furthermore drinking carbonated beverages can also greatly affect the integrity of the trays leading to premature deterioration. We want the best outcome for you while you are in Invisalign or any other type or orthodontic treatment and for this reason we suggest you to only drink water while wearing your Invisalign trays.

One of the most common abnormalities in a child’s facial growth and development is caused by a compromised airway or, simply stated, the inability to breathe properly through the nose. Children who cannot breathe well through their nose will tend to breathe through their mouth. This sets up a chain of events which may severely impact not only the health of a child but also the way a child’s facial features develop and ultimately the way a child looks as an adult. The most common causes of altered breathing are:
- Enlarged adenoids
- Enlarged tonsils
- Deviated septum (nasal obstruction)
- Chronic sinus infections
The effects of a compromised airway on the growth of a child are revealed in many ways. The tongue often positions itself snugly in the lower jaw to allow a child to breathe more readily through the mouth. This in turn changes the growth of the lower jaw so that it grows more vertically and makes the face look longer.
At the same time, since nasal breathing is severely compromised, the upper jaw and midface (the nasal bones, cheek bones, and bones supporting the tissue of the face) fail to develop at a normal rate because the natural growth stimulant of air flow through the nose is absent. This results in a deficiency of growth of the upper jaw and midface which, added to the long facial growth from the lower jaw, directly impacts the facial balance and beauty of a child and later as an adult.
As parents, we often see the signs of airway problems however they often go unnoticed. Here are a few common symptoms of airway problems:
- Mouth breathing – signs are dry/chapped lips which stay apart at rest and red, inflamed gums
- Venous pooling beneath the eyes – dark circles beneath the eyes
- Change in head posture – head postures forward and/or tipping the forehead backwards
- Tonsil and adenoid problems – Chronic sinus problems, throat problems
- Snoring – children do not usually snore
- Loud grinding of teeth during sleep
- Bed wetting
- Reflux in the eustachion tube – can lead to inner ear infections
Why is it important to recognize and treat airway obstruction?
Over time, if a child is not getting enough quality sleep, he or she does not acquire sufficient amounts of oxygen to aid in normal brain and body development. The child is more likely to be diagnosed later in life with health conditions such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and childhood obesity. Studies have shown decreased airways in growing children can also lead to other behavioral problems such as restlessness, aggressive behavior, excessive daytime sleepiness and poor test performance. Patients who grow up with untreated, chronic sleep apnea are also more likely to having learning disabilities, behavioral problems and metabolic problems.
As children aren’t able to identify the problem on their own, it’s crucial for parents to pay close attention to their children’s sleep habits and daytime behavior. We are here to help bring these possible issues to light so we can work with you and your child to provide the care your child needs and deserves.

In the media you may have heard recently the flossing may not be necessary and has no effect on getting cavities or keeping gum disease away. Well, we ask that you think twice about that statement. Patients in braces or other orthodontic appliances are at risk for inflamed gums, decalcification leading to cavities due to the lack of proper brushing and floss use. We encourage all patients to continue to floss. Please take a moment to look at these images to get an idea of what a lack of oral hygiene can do. Our advice - PLEASE FLOSS in conjunction with proper brushing.

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

Dr. Baby and Dr. Rojas were amazing throughout the whole process and I'm so glad that I got to work with orthodontists that I trust. Getting braces was truly worthwhile. Thanks again!"

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.

Retainers are an important part of your orthodontic treatment!
Here are 7 easy steps for taking care of your retainer!!
1. Wear your retainers all of the time, except when eating or brushing. If you are unsure how often to wear your retainers be sure to ask a team member next time you are in.
2. When your retainers are not in your mouth, ALWAYS keep them in your retainer case. Not in a napkin or lose in your pocket, this is sure way to throw out or break them.
3. Do not leave your retainers in a really hot or cold car.
4. Keep your retainers away from pets, dogs LOVE them.
5. Clean your retainers by holding them carefully and brushing with a toothbrush and toothpaste. If you have an essix (clear retainer) be sure to ask our team on current cleaning recommendations.
6. Do not place retainers in the microwave or in boiling water
7. If you have any questions be sure to ask us.

Today is National Popcorn Day. We will use this to remind all patients in braces and wearing cemented orthodontic appliances that popcorn is to be AVOIDED while in treatment. Popcorn and braces do not mix. Popcorn can cause harm in multiple... ways. The husks from popcorn can become lodged beneath the braces and cause irritation to the gum tissue. Un-popped kernels can shear or break off brackets as well as bend or dislodge wires resulting in discomfort and possible extended treatment time.
Once your braces or appliances are removed you will be able to once again enjoy popcorn.
Happy Monday Everyone!

Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, Giving Tuesday is the opening day of the giving season. In the spirit of the holiday season, it gives us a chance to simply “give back” and do some good for others. www.givingtuesday.org
Our office is using Giving Tuesday to kick-start (pun intended) our participation in “Give Cold Feet the Boot” this holiday season. The Give Cold Feet the Boot Campaign, which is run by United Way’s GenNext (www.gennextuw.ca), collects money and boots to help keep the feet of the children in our community toasty warm this winter season.
Also, in support of “Giving Tuesday” we want to see your “Unselfies”. Everyone is a pro at the “selfie” but what is an #unselfie? An Unselfie is way to show support for Giving Tuesday. You take a picture of yourself holding a written explanation of how or why you “give back”, tag it #unselfie and #givingtuesday and upload it to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. For every “Unselfie” emailed to email@example.com or posted on our Facebook Page we will donate $1.00 to GenNext’s Program “Give Cold Feet the Boot.”
Here’s an example of our hygienist Mel’s #unselfie. Further examples of unselfies can be found at: www.mashable.com/2013/12/03/giving-tuesday-unselfies. We will be collecting and posting unselfies until December 12th.
#embracethegivingseason #givingTuesday #unselfie
We won’t stop there, our office be collecting new boots until December 12th at each of our offices. No child should go without proper footwear this winter season and our team will do what we can to help the children in our community. Our Boot Drive details are as follows:

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
- 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!!!

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 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 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)
Uncooked vegetables such as carrots, celery
Apples! No biting into apples, if you would like to enjoy simply cut into bit size pieces
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!

Let’s CAN hunger together!
The Food Bank is a much needed service in our communities. Food drives often run during Christmas, but many do not realize the need for donations is even higher in the summer. Because of this, we’ve decided to put on a summer food drive. “LET’S CAN HUNGER” in our communities.
Drop off bins will be located at each office. One donation or two, large or small it doesn’t matter - any amount helps!
Some of their most needed non-perishable food categories are:
- Canned fruit
- Canned vegetables
- Canned meats,
- Fish, and meat alternatives (legumes, peanut butter etc.)
- Brown beans (in tomato sauce)
- Baby food & formula
- Pasta, rice
- Special diet foods (gluten free, lactose free, etc.)
We hope to collect a total of 300 items for the London, Goderich and Wingham food banks during June, July and August. Be sure to watch our goal meter on our Facebook Page. If we hit our goal, watch out, we just may have a fun give-a-way planned J
All Smile Miles holders who bring in a food drive donation will be awarded 2 Smile Miles, be sure to show one of our staff your donation.
Thank you for all continued support!

“Patient with a Cause”
MACKENZIE BERTELESEN – Juvenile Diabetes Research
Meet Mackenzie is a patient of our office. She is an active 12 year old girl, who is a competitive dancer and soccer player. She loves spending time with friends and has a passion for the arts. On October 01, 2013 Mackenzie's life changed forever, when she was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus type I, also known as type I diabetes.
Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes suddenly by destroying the insulin producing cells in the pancreas, that leads to high levels of glucose in the blood. It represents only 5-10% of all diabetes cases and left untreated type I diabetes is fatal. It cannot be prevented; it is not caused by poor diet and cannot be modified, corrected or cured by diet. There is currently no cure for type I diabetes.
To keep Mackenzie alive, she has to endure multiple daily injections of insulin 4-6 times per day and test her blood sugar levels 6-10 times per day by pricking her finger with a needle to test her blood.
Medication and supplies to keep Mackenzie alive averages $1000 plus per month and is not covered by OHIP. It is an out of pocket expense. A CURE IS NEEDED.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), is the largest charitable funder of, and advocate for, diabetes science worldwide with more than 80% of donations directly supporting research, education and advocacy.
On June 8th, 2014 more than 45 000 people across Canada along with 6 other countries will come together as a community to raise funds for research to cure, better treat and prevent type I diabetes. Mackenzie and her family will be participating in the walk to cure type I diabetes.
Please support Mackenzie by donating to the JDRF Telus Walk to cure type I diabetes and help end this disease.

If you haven't heard we are collecting pennies for "The Waterschool Project" Check out the full details below!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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/?%2Fvideo%2Fworld%2F2009%2F09%2F01%2Fmckenzie.sun.water.cnn

Last year we received a request from one our patient families to help out with the “The Cinderella Project” and we were thrilled to jump on board to support this fantastic cause.
Do you remember your Grade 8 or High School graduation? How about the dress and accessories you wore or the girl you took and how special she looked when you picked her up?
Every young girl deserves to feel that good when celebrating their achievement of graduating from elementary or high school. Unfortunately, that isn’t always financially possible for everyone. We are also very aware of the recent closures of the industries in and around our community and how that will increase the need for assistance.
Again this year ‘The Cinderella Project’ will be making available to the girls in our community dresses, shoes, clutches, fingernail polish & bling - anything that will make their night perfect.
We are hoping you, your friends and family will take time to check your closets, and donate any unneeded dresses and prom accessories. Dresses (and accessories) can be dropped off at any of our three locations until February 28th. We will take care of the rest.
The dresses should be gently used and suitable for either graduation (public or secondary), or prom. Unfortunately, wedding dresses cannot be accepted. The Cinderella project does offer garment bags to the girls when they pick up their dresses, but if you have one that you could spare, it would be greatly appreciated.
For more info on The Cinderella Project please click the link below:
Last year we were thrilled to donate approximately 200 dresses and many accessories to the Cinderella Project.
We appreciate your support and say thank you on behalf of all of the beautiful girls that will be attending graduation/prom this June.

Drs. Baby & Rojas and team came across this video recently, and realized that it's just what folks considering Invisalign need to see. Invisalign gets a ton of promotion online (including here on our blog), but people rarely get the see a clear cut, unbiased, point of view from someone who actually has chosen to straighten their teeth with Invisalign.
We get quite a lot of requests for Invisalign. We always let our patients know about the stages of Invisalign, as well as how one might first react to it. But, to hear it from someone actually wearing these clear aligners is something else.
Check out this video of a patient who has been wearing her aligners for only 10 minutes! Because they’re clear, your teeth will be steadily straightening – and no one will know it but you! Please give us a call to set up an initial consultation, so Drs. Baby and Rojas can discuss the specifics of your treatment.
September 1st, 2010
When considering treatment options, patients often ask us how Invisalign treatment is so different than traditional braces. Well, there are more reasons to smile about Invisalign than you may know. Invisalign is a series of removable aligners that are nearly invisible, and besides straightening your teeth, can improve your oral health. Here’s how:
Healthy gums: Straight teeth allow a close fit for gums. This lessens the gum stress that is caused by crowded or widely spaced teeth, thus also reducing red and swollen gums.
Easy cleaning: Invisalign is removable, therefore brushing and flossing is easier and you are able to maintain a healthy mouth. These habits are vital to avoiding tooth decay, plaque and even gum disease.
Improved speech and chewing: Properly-aligned teeth don’t have the discomfort or compound speech impediments that can be caused by crowded teeth or a deteriorating jawbone.
If you have any questions about Invisalign, just ask us the next time you’re in for an appointment at our London, Wingham or Goderich offices! Or, you may post your question on our Facebook page! You can also read this article for more information on Invisalign and your oral health.
July 28th, 2010
Hey parents! You’ve taken your kids to our office to straighten their smiles, but what about yours? If you've been wanting to improve your smile , our team can help! We are specially trained to offer an adult-friendly option for straightening teeth called Invisalign.
This course of treatment consists of a set of clear aligners that are molded to fit your teeth using a proprietary technology. You wear them all day and night, except for meals, brushing, and flossing – when you can easily slip them out to make eating and cleaning a snap!
Because they're clear, your teeth will be steadily straightening – and no one will know it but you!
Please give us a call to set up a consultation, so that we can discuss the specifics of your treatment, and determine if Invisalign will work for you.
July 30th, 2009
Yes, it is, and that’s part of what makes it work. To find out if you are the right candidate for Invisalign treatment, the first thing we do is to take an impression of your teeth as they are now and send off the impression to a lab to digitize it. Using special software, we look at the current positioning of your teeth and compare it to the way your teeth should look.
Next we use special software to map out the exact path your teeth will take from the beginning of your treatment to the end. Based on the results, a set of custom aligners are created just for your teeth. Throughout the course of treatment, you will be required to wear these clear, removable aligners one at a time; each one moving your teeth closer and closer to their final, perfectly aligned position. And since the aligners are virtually invisible, nobody around you will even know you are wearing braces!
Drs. Baby and Rojas are both certified Invisalign providers for Wingham and London Ontario. If you have questions about Invisalign, or would like to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment, give us a call at 1-800-920-9798.
