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.

Remember to see your dentist when in braces

October 19th, 2016

Regular checkups with your dentist are necessary for anyone in orthodontic treatment. Cleanings can be done while in orthodontic appliances and your dentist can check for cavities and the overall health of your mouth and gums. A successful outcome in orthodontics is a team effort.

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!

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.

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

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.

Effects of Poor Dental Hygiene

October 7th, 2014

Poor oral hygiene does not only contribute to puffy gums and cavities. It can affect your whole body! Remember to brush 2 times daily (more frequently if wearing braces) and floss once a day. Your body will thank you!

Let's Can Hunger Together!

June 22nd, 2014

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!

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.

Feeling Crowded?

February 10th, 2014

Feeling Crowded?

Crowded or overlapping teeth can be difficult to clean, making tooth decay and gum disease more likely. Teeth that don’t come together properly when you close your jaws—a problem called malocclusion, or “bad bite” which can cause problems chewing or even swallowing.  Poor alignment of teeth can also make it difficult to pronounce certain sounds. So if you are feeling "crowded" give us a call to see how we can help.

Orthodontic treatment isn't just limited to traditional metal braces, we office a clear alternatives such as Invisalign as well!

Give us a call 1-800-920-9798.

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.

With the advancements in orthodontic technology we can offer more comfortable treatment in less time. Having braces to correct teeth can help prevent tooth decay in teeth that are crooked or overlapping, because of the inability to clean properly.

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.

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:

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.

Important Information for Patients with Cold Sores

January 8th, 2013

Important Information for Patients with Cold Sores

Cold Sores are a fact of life for some people.  The virus that causes cold sores is herpes simplex 1 and can lay dormant in one’s body for years.  When the cold sore virus strikes, you will experience blisters on the lips and possibly even nose.  These little blisters can be caused by stress, sun, fatigue, cold weather or even physical irritation of the lips (such as a visit to the dentist).  Visiting the dentist or orthodontist when a cold sore is present can cause discomfort, irritate the lesion, (which can prolong the course and increase the severity of the infection), as well as spread the herpes virus to members of the dental team.  If you have a cold sore, it is highly recommended that you avoid non-emergency dental treatment. Your comfort is our top concern and we ask that you reschedule your appointment until the lesion disappears, which is usually about 2 weeks.

More information on the cold sore virus can be found at: http://bodyandhealth.canada.com/channel_condition_info_details.asp?disease_id=33&channel_id=1029&relation_id=87442

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.

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: “Why do people need braces, anyway?"

December 1st, 2011


Your dentist may have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. Drs. Baby & Rojas will both tell you that crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain, which can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and eventually lead to tooth loss.

Other orthodontic problems, specifically concerned with how the teeth bite together can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that support, or misalignment of the jaw joints. Orthodontic treatment with Drs. Baby & Rojas can be less costly than the additional care required to treat dental problems that arise as a result of uncorrected orthodontic problems. For most people, a beautiful smile is the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. After your braces come off, you'll feel more self-confident. To get started with orthodontic your treatment today, please contact us to schedule a consultation.

Our offices are conveniently located in Wingham and London, Ontario. We provide orthodontic care for the following communities: London, Wingham, Lucan, Exeter, Clinton, Goderich, Seaforth, Kincardine, Hanover, Brussels, Lambeth, Middlesex County.

Have a great rest of the week!

What is malocclusion? Drs. Baby & Rojas Explain!

April 9th, 2010

Malocclusion, or what we calls “bad bite,” is the improper alignment of teeth and/or jaws. When your teeth and jaws are not properly aligned, it may impact your bite, the ability to properly care for your teeth, your gum tissue health and even your appearance.

Most people experience some degree of malocclusion, but it generally is not severe enough to require corrective measures. If your malocclusion is serious enough, however, treatment with Drs. Baby & Rojas may be necessary to correct the issue.

We will tell you that untreated malocclusion can lead undesirable mouth problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, chipped and cracked teeth. The most common solution for malocclusion, of course, is orthodontic treatment. The actual course of treatment, including the length of time you will require braces, will be determined by severity of your malocclusion. The goal of your treatment is to move your teeth into the proper position and correct any misalignment in the jaw. If overcrowding is causing the problem, we may need to remove one or more teeth as part of treatment.

At our London and Wingham offices (and soon our new Goderich location), we use the most advanced technology in the field in order to ensure that you receive the best possible results. If you have any questions about malocclusion, please give us a call and we’ll try to answer any questions you may have.
