Be a Santa to a Senior

November 28th, 2016

“Be a Santa to a Senior” is a great program that provides seniors on our community a little joy over the holiday season. Becoming a “Santa to a Senior” is similar to adopting a child over Christmas. You simply visit a designated location in your area which will have a tree with ornaments/bulbs on it, the bulbs will have the seniors request written on it, chose one (or more), buy a present/wrap and return to the designated box.

There are 5 locations in London. If you are not in the London area and want to check if there is a “Be as Santa to a Senior Program” near you simply follow this link, enter and enter your postal code.

Living with Invisalign

November 22nd, 2016

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.

For more information about living with Invisalign visit this website.

We currently have a large box waiting for your used shoes at our London office. We would be more than happy to take your used shoes at our Goderich and Wingham offices, just be sure they are bagged so we can get them back to our London office easily.

Thank you for all of your support. We look forward to helping collect 100,000 pairs of shoes for those in need!

Braces and Halloween Treats

October 23rd, 2016

Our team would like to remind all our patients to be careful when they bite into their Halloween treats this month! We know all those sweet, hard, sticky treats are VERY tempting and hard to resist. You need to know that indulging in these hard, crunchy, chewy treats can have VERY bad effects on your braces.

Broken brackets, broken and bent wires can increase your time spent in braces and those sugary sweets can lead to cavities. We don’t want you to miss out this Halloween so we are offering some delicious alternatives! These alternatives are softer and won’t wreak havoc on your braces.

No matter what treat you decided to indulge in be sure to brush well around your brackets and along you gum line and floss after…

Soft chocolate Gelatin treats
Fruit Kabobs Apple cider
Peanut butter cups Smoothies
Ice cream Root beer floats

If you’re still looking for other braces-friendly alternatives, we recommend visiting our Pinterest page which offers a TON of braces friendly options.

We understand trick-or-treating is a time-honoured tradition. We do not want to take the fun out of it and hope you can find some other alternatives while wearing braces or other orthodontic appliances.

Importance of an open airway in growing children

September 10th, 2016

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)
  • Allergies
  • 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.

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.

Our Inspiring Patient, Mackenzie

March 23rd, 2016

Mackenzie is one of our great patients and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2013. She has been completing the Telus JDRF Walk since then.  Dr. Baby and Dr. Rojas are proud to sponsor her and her team “The Test Strips” again this year. Her mother Jaime took time to give us some insight on how Mackenzie is doing and what she has been through over the last 3 years. We hope you take time to read what her mother had to say.  You can also find more information on her donation page found below.

“Mackenzie is now 14 years old she will turn 15 in September. She is now in grade 9 and finished her first semester with honours and an extra credit (she took online summer school to get a head start). Mackenzie has taken the year off of dance, but is going to a gym (fitness forum) 3 times a week for cardio and strength training.

Mackenzie was diagnosed October 01, 2013. This equals 875 days since diagnosis, 7400 finger pokes to test blood, 3700 needles and 240 insulin infusion sites inserted. Through all of this she is still a happy teenager with a great outlook on life. She independent, strong and determined to succeed.

Mackenzie recently had family visit from England and is looking forward to a trip to England in the near future to visit the rest of her family.

This will be Mackenzie's third year participating in the JDRF Walk for a cure. Mackenzie now has over 15 people walking to support her on team "the test strips" This year’s event will take place at TD Waterhouse Stadium on June 12, 2016.

Thank you again for all your support for Mackenzie. We are truly blessed by all the wonderful, supportive people in our lives and the continual love and support given to Mackenzie. Her strength comes from knowing she is so loved and supported.”

Sincerely,

The Bertelsen's

Kind Words From a Patient's Mom!

October 13th, 2015

Check out this review from one of our patients!

"After my Son had a horrible experience with a different clinic he was scared of orthodontists. I took him to see Dr. Baby, He connected with her warm personality and kind voice my Son also mentioned she is very pretty. He eventually started trusting again and he also let Dr. Rojas see him a few times (the other ortho I took him to was a man). They both were so good to my son and did not push him there was no sense of urgency they went with my sons pace. Thank you for taking your time with my son he has a great smile now  "

Appliance of the Month - Herbst

September 16th, 2015

Appliance of the Month

Herbst

The Herbst appliance is very effective in correcting large overbites due to small lower jaws in patients who are growing. This appliance is used to enhance the growth of the lower jaw in a forward direction, while at the same time applying pressure to the upper jaw in a backwards direction. This quick video gives you an idea of what Herbst appliance looks like and how it works.

Back to School With Braces - London, Orthodontist

September 4th, 2015

Back to School With Braces

It's that time of year again! To help you survive school with your new braces or appliances, check out this list. These supplies will help you keep your braces clean and comfortable throughout your school day.

1. Toothbrush & Toothpaste
It’s important to take a few minutes to brush your teeth after lunch. This helps get out any food that may get stuck in your brackets and can also help prevent tooth decay and bad breath.

2. Floss/ Floss Threaders

Even with constant brushing, sometimes you can’t quite get out leftover food with just a toothbrush. Floss may be necessary.

3. Proxy brush

This is the little Christmas tree shaped brush given to in your oral hygiene kit. It is very helpful for removing food stuck under wires and in between braces.

4. Chapstick

Using chapstick or lip balm is an easy way to treat your chapped lips that occur as a result of your braces.

5. Dental Wax
The wires on your braces can be abrasive against the inside of your mouth, often leaving sore spots. Dental wax helps decrease this irritation.

6. Elastics

Elastics are a very important part of your orthodontic care. If you are asked to wear them, please do so. Use your class schedule as a reminder to change your elastics every few hours. As the elastics stretch out, they become less effective so changing them regularly is great idea.. Keep a few on hand during your school day.

Having braces placed means you are on your way to a new beautiful healthy smile. We encourage you to brush and maintain you smile during the school year. We know schedules can be hectic and fitting in time to brush and floss can't always be easy, but we can assure you that if you take care of braces and appliances during treatment, you will have something to SMILE about the day your braces are removed!

If you have any questions about going back to school with braces, or need some tips or tricks be sure to ask our team the next time you are in. You can also check us out on Pinterest for some helpful back to school lunch ideas.

National Popcorn Day!

January 19th, 2015

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!

What Won't This Dad Do???

June 11th, 2014

The last couple months we were proud to introduce to you our “Patients With a Cause.” We are now excited to introduce to you Craig, our “Dad With a Cause.” Craig is a patient dad of our practice has been involved with the “Make a Wish Found ation” for years. He has done things such as dying his hair blue and even shaving his head this past March in support of “Make a Wish.” He has now upped the ante and will be RAPPELLING OFF THE TD CENTRE BUILDING, in downtown London on June 20th! The fun part is, if he reaches his fundraising goal of $1,500 he will wear a tuxedo because he states “that’s what James Bond would do!” We would LOVE to see Craig become James Bond while supporting Make A Wish, which makes wishes and dreams come true for children with life threatening illnesses. If you are interested in helping him reach his goal, please go to the following link:

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;

Chex Mix, not a good idea for patients in braces.

Broken brackets can increase treatment time. We want you to get you back to eating those foods you love as soon as possible. Our Pinterest page is full of "Braces Friendly" recipes.

Crowded or overlapping teeth can be difficult to clean, making tooth decay and gum disease more likely.

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!

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

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.

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.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

August 24th, 2012


Orthodontic treatments are used to correct malocclusion, a condition more commonly known as a bad bite. The length of treatment time varies depending on the severity of the bite problem.

What is a "bad bite"?
A bad bite occurs when spacing or alignment problems are present. This often includes teeth that are protruding, crowded, or crooked. Sometimes teeth appear straight, but have an uneven bite because the upper and lower jaws do not align properly. Teeth that are irregularly spaced — either too far apart or too close together — can also cause bite problems.
Frequent causes of bite problems:
• Heredity
• Thumb-sucking
• Premature tooth loss
• Accidents

Benefits of orthodontic treatment:

Appearance -
Correcting a bad bite often creates a more attractive smile, which frequently raises the patient's self esteem.

Preventing Decay -
It also results in a healthier mouth. It is much more difficult to thoroughly clean teeth that are crooked, protruding, overlapped, or crowed. This may allow plaque to build up, which can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment corrects these conditions, so cleaning can be more efficient.

Avoiding Alignment Issues -
An uneven bite can interfere with the motions of chewing and speaking. This can cause abnormal wear to tooth enamel, which may require pricey cosmetic restorative treatments, such as crowns or veneers, to correct. It can also lead to problems with the jaws. Orthodontic treatment lessens the likelihood of those issues, as well.

Types of orthodontic treatment:
Braces: Metal or ceramic brackets are bonded to the front of teeth. Wires and elastics are attached to the brackets to straighten teeth.
Invisalign®: Advanced 3D computer images of the patients' mouth are used to create clear, custom aligners that slowly move teeth. They are nearly invisible and are more comfortable than traditional braces. They are also removable, which makes it possible to continue with normal brushing and flossing.

Retainers: A retainer is a removable piece worn inside the mouth that uses pressure to force teeth to move into proper alignment. They are used after braces are removed.

Length of orthodontic treatment: Treatment typically ranges from 12 to 36 months. Factors include the age, cooperation level, and growth occurrence of the patient. The complexity of the case also impacts the treatment time.

Elements of Braces

August 2nd, 2012

When coming to our office to have braces put on, you may find yourself feeling a bit intimated and nervous about the experience. We hope to help you feel more at ease by explaining exactly what the different parts of braces are, and what they do.
Parts of Braces
• Elastic Tie — This is a very small rubber band, and it holds the archwire in place.
• Archwire — This is the main part of the braces. It is a wire guide that tracks the teeth. The wire may be moved from time to time during treatment to continue straightening a patient's teeth.
• Loop in Archwire — This is not in all braces. If it is used, it is to close a gap left from a tooth extraction.
• Bracket — This piece of equipment holds the archwire in place. Formerly, many patients used colored rubber bands to keep the brackets in place, but now since most brackets are cemented on, this is no longer necessary.
• Headgear Tube — This is a hollow area near the back bands, which allows the headgear to fit into the braces. This is only used on patients who require headgear.
• Coil Spring — If needed, this would fit between a bracket and the main archwire. Its purpose is to open up the space between the teeth. This is not necessarily used on all patients.
• Tie Wire — This is another piece of equipment that is used to keep the archwire in place. It is a thin wire that wraps around the bracket.
• Band — This is a metal band that fits completely around a tooth. It is used to help adhere brackets to the tooth.
• Hook — This is the piece of equipment that is used to attach the elastics, also known as rubber bands, around the bracket.
• Elastic — These elastics are used to connect one point of the appliance to another. The purpose is to apply pressure, and encourage the teeth to move into the proper positioning.
By defining each appliance we hope you or your child will be less apprehensive about getting braces put on. At the end of your treatment, you will have a bright, straight smile to show off to all of your friends.

Top ten tips for keeping your BRACES sparkling clean!

July 12th, 2012




Keeping your teeth clean is more important than ever when you have braces! Food bits have more spots than usual to hide in your mouth, so you must be diligent in order to avoid bad breath, swollen gums, discolored teeth and cavities. If you remove plaque regularly during treatment, you'll experience better results and shorter treatment time. Keep plaque at bay with these top ten tips:
1. 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.

2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.

5. Like a Boy Scout, 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.
6. Remove the moving parts. If you have elastic bands or headgear, remove these parts before you brush or floss.
7. Fluoride is your friend. Fluoride helps prevent cavities. Be sure to brush with fluoride toothpaste, and rinse with fluoride mouthwash.

8. Pointy brushes reach tiny places. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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. If you need help finding the right Dentist for you, feel free to contact our office - we’d love to help!

We hope this helps, and remember to give our team a call if you ever have any questions!

Five ways you can avoid plaque!

July 6th, 2012



Our team knows nobody likes getting plaque on their teeth. Here are five other ways you can avoid that dreaded enemy of the teeth during orthodontic treatment, courtesy of WebMD.

Let’s start with brushing regularly.. Brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste is vital to a healthy mouth. Make sure you softly brush all the surfaces of your teeth.

Next on the list is flossing daily: a simple daily flossing between teeth clears away plaque before it can cause damage and can also clean plaque at the gum line. Plaque is known to reach the spaces between teeth.

Also, evading a trip to the dentist is probably not a great idea. Let’s say you brush and floss daily. You’re still at risk for plaque. With time, the plaque hardens and turns into tartar. Consider visiting your general dentist at least twice a year or as recommended by your dentist, and you have a lower chance of getting cavities or losing your teeth while wearing braces.

You’ll also want to stop avoiding those fruits and veggies. Believe it or not, there are foods out there that play a key role in keeping plaque off our teeth. They include apples, carrots, cucumbers and other raw fruits and vegetables. You can still eat these types of fruits and veggies if you have braces, but be sure to cut them up into bite sized pieces to avoid breaking off brackets.

Finally, before you pick up that candy bar, remember to not give in to your sweet tooth. Consuming sugary drinks or eating candy or other junk food allows sugar to stick to our teeth. The bacteria, then, becomes plaque, which turns into acid and damages our teeth. Avoiding these five bad habits keeps your plaque in check and your mouth as healthy as can be during your orthodontic treatment. If you have any questions, give us a call or ask us on Facebook!

Insignia: A Great Option for Adults!

June 12th, 2012

More and more adults are entering into orthodontic treatment each year. Whether it's the first or second time in treatment, Insignia Advanced Smile Design is engineered with the latest technology that can best accommodate the adult patient. Insignia provides precise movement, comfortable treatment and often in less time (and fewer office appointments). Typical orthodontic treatment can last on average between 12 and 24 months, but each case is different. And- not everyone can achieve ideal results from a clear aligner product such as Invisalign.

Insignia allows orthodontists to create a treatment plan with fine detail. This plan is used to custom-manufacturer the braces to be used on your teeth. Customizing to fit your unique dental anatomy and customizing to meet your final result. That's Insigina.
Advantages to a customized Insignia approach:

• You see a digital 3D computerized preview of your ideal smile.
• Every aspect of your braces experience – from the brackets to the positioning to the adjustments – is customized to achieve that end goal.
• Underlying problems are diagnosed earlier than with the traditional approach.
• The overall time for treatment is approximately 25% less than traditional.

April is "Daffodil Month"

March 31st, 2012

The Canadian Cancer Society recognizes April, which is almost here, as “Daffodil Month.” Every 3 minutes another Canadian is faced with fighting cancer, chances are that somehow each one of us has been affected by cancer. Throughout April, volunteers across Ontario will be working together to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.

There are many ways to join the fight against cancer this April:

* Wear a daffodil pin
* Buy fresh daffodils March 29 – April 1
* Consider making a donation when a volunteer knocks on your door
* Be a volunteer for the Canadian Cancer Society, even if it’s just and hour of your time
*Spread the word
*To show our support, we will place yellow daffodils throughout our office.

Please show support and make a difference in your own way – no matter how big or small.

Ask Drs. Baby & Rojas: “How do I prevent tooth decay during my treatment?”

January 31st, 2012


Thanks for the question!

If you are brushing and flossing daily during your orthodontic treatment with Dr. Baby and Dr. Rojas, we think that’s great! But, don’t forget that it’s also important for you to visit your general dentist every 3-to-6 months in addition to brushing your teeth and flossing (and visiting our office, of course). Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health, especially during orthodontic treatment.

Tooth decay, which is caused by sugars left in your mouth, can turn into an acid, which in turn can break down your teeth. Children are at high risk for tooth decay because adolescents tend to be lax in their oral hygiene habits. Proper brushing and flossing routines, combined with regular dental visits, help keep tooth decay away.

If you have any questions, please be sure to keep ask Dr. Baby, Dr. Rojas or our team during your next adjustment appointment at our London, Goderich or Wingham, ON office, or ask us on Facebook!

Drs. Rojas and Baby, your local Insignia™ providers

January 18th, 2011


Let's say you're getting braces soon. While you’re excited about finally having that great, gorgeous smile, you may be nervous about wearing wires and brackets for two or more years. Well, Drs. Baby and Rojas would like to tell you about an orthodontic system that makes straightening your teeth with braces a lot faster and easier compared to conventional orthodontic treatment. It’s called Insignia, and it’s changing the way people feel about their braces.

While traditional orthodontic treatments take two or more years, it’s not true for Insignia. Through the use of Insignia’s sophisticated 3-D imaging, treatment planning, and customized braces with customized precision archwires, Drs. Baby and Rojas can reduce treatment time compared to that of conventional braces.

In addition to shortening treatment times, the greater efficiency of the Insignia system at London Braces also helps reduce the number of wire changes and adjustments you’ll need, and that means fewer trips to our office. The Insignia system’s 3-D software lets Drs. Baby and Rojas analyze how to effectively and efficiently align your teeth. Through this software, personalized archwires are designed to move your teeth into proper alignment smoothly and directly, reducing the number of maintenance visits. Unlike traditional orthodontics and their “one size fits all” approach, Insignia Advanced Smile Design customizes braces and wires to you. The result is a radiant smile that reflects your individuality.

Give us a call and ask us about this revolutionary treatment! 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.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
