Invisalign Tips - Baby and Rojas Orthodontic Specialists

January 21st, 2019

INVISALIGN TIPS

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.

For more information about Invisalign wear and care check out our video.

Please Do Not Forget to Floss!

August 16th, 2016

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.

Helping Create Beautiful Smiles!

Dr. Baby, Dr. Rojas and our team know braces can give you a straighter, healthier, happy smile. It can help build confidence and so much more!

Retainers, and what you need to know

May 13th, 2016

A number of adults are getting braces a second time. The main cause is not wearing retainers. Although retainers are for life, we suggest a more practical schedule for wearing your retainers. This is discussed the day your braces come off.

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.

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. 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!"

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.

Do I need to see a dentist when I have braces?

April 16th, 2015

question we are asked on occasion is this.

"If I have braces, do I still need dental check-ups every six months?"

Definitely! In fact it is even more important that patients receiving orthodontic treatment visit their dentist regularly. With braces or other orthodontic appliances, food may be caught in places that your toothbrush can’t reach. This causes bacteria to build up that can lead to cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Your dentist will work closely with your orthodontist to make sure your teeth stay clean and healthy while wearing braces to help provide the best possible outcome.

Giving Tuesday - the beginning of the giving season!

December 1st, 2014

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 tricia@londonbraces.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:

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.

If interested in support Joshua’s Journey please visit www.gutsywalk.ca, then click on “Pledge Participant” and either search for Joshua Pritchard or Team Name Joshua’s Journey

Patients With a Cause - Meet Mackenzie

March 18th, 2014

“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.

To donate please visit Mackenzie's team website at;

    Back to School Braces Friendly Lunches!

    September 5th, 2013

    Back to School Braces Friendly Lunches!

    How is everyone’s first few days of school going? Stuck on some “braces friendly” lunch ideas? Well we have some answers and helpful hints for you!

    Foods to Avoid!

    Foods that can stick to or damage your child’s braces should be avoided, such as;

    · Soft, chewy, and sticky candy that can adhere to brackets and wires

    · Cakes, cookies, brownies, or other sugar-loaded treats Nuts, hard candy, and popcorn

    · Sodas, fruit juices, and similarly high-acid beverages

    Foods that are mom and orthodontist approved!

    To stay strong and healthy, your children’s teeth need a steady supply of calcium, phosphate, vitamin D, and other minerals and nutrients, which can be found in foods like;

    · Chicken, turkey, and beef, especially in lunch-meat form, which is easier on your child’s braces.

    · Milk, sugar-free yogurt, and other dairy products

    · Fruits like bananas and peeled-apples

    · Drink plenty of water.

    Here are some other treats for meals-on-the-go:

    • Banana slices, grape halves, and thinly cut (peeled) apples (dip them all in a bit of
      lemon juice to keep them from browning)
    • Canned peaches or pears, fruit cocktail and Mandarin orange slices
    • Applesauce or any of the mixed fruit “sauces” in individual servings
    • Thin carrot-curls made with a scraper, plus a small container of grated cheese or
      hummus, with torn-up fresh pita bread for scooping
    • Individual pudding and yogurt cups

    Post Adjustment Lunches Ideas

    After adjustment appointments, your child’s teeth may be especially sensitive. Sandwiches and other normally acceptable foods that require a lot of chewing should be avoided for the next day or two. Foods that require minimal chewing and discomfort include;

    • Soup/Chili
    • Pasta
    • Pudding

    Though challenging, packing a lunch that agrees with your children’s braces and smiles is less difficult when you plan ahead. Please visit the links below for more ideas.

    This website also contains a wealth of information on braces friendly recipes – check it out! http://metalmouthmedia.net/resources-3/resources/

    We have “pinned” a few braces friendly recipes on our Pinterest page as well! http://pinterest.com/babyrojasortho/braces-friendly-recipes/

    Have Any Pennies Laying Around??

    July 17th, 2013

    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 tricia@londonbraces.com for further information.

    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.

    The Cinderella Project!

    January 27th, 2013

    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:

    www.londoncinderellaproject.com

    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.

    When Should My Child See an Orthodontist??

    October 18th, 2012

    A question we commonly get asked is “When should my child first see an orthodontist?.” The American and Canadian Associations of Orthodontists recommends that all children see an orthodontist by the age seven. At this age, the orthodontist will evaluate whether your child will need interceptive orthodontic treatment. The importance of identifying orthodontic issues at a younger age has been shown to minimize, or even eliminate, more extensive orthodontic treatment later in life. Often early orthodontic intervention can help guide proper jaw development and allow proper room for normal eruption of the permanent teeth. If you have further questions please do not hesitate to give our office a call 1-800-920-9798.

    Helpful Tips for Healthy Smiles at Halloween

    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.

    Ask Drs. Baby & Rojas: “I’m 31 – am I too old for braces?”

    July 15th, 2011


    Absolutely not! At the office of Dr. Paula Baby and Dr. Jaime Rojas, nobody is “too old” for braces! In fact, we read a fascinating statistic recently: adults getting braces has actually jumped 24 percent since 1996! Of course, braces help make your teeth stay strong, healthy and become perfectly-aligned. But we’d like you to know orthodontic treatment with Drs. Baby and Rojas can be successful at any age, and adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful smile.

    If you’ve been thinking about getting that perfect smile, we would love to have you visit for a consultation at our office. Please give us a call to set one up at our convenient Wingham or London office and have a wonderful weekend!
