Yes, yes their love is dangerous. With Valentines Day approaching and those delicious chocolates and other sweet treats such as cinnamon hearts in our grasp, be sure you are snacking smart. Cinnamon hearts and nutty chocolate are definitely treats to avoid. Try milk chocolate instead. Also remember, no matter what treat you decided to divulge in, be sure to brush afterwards..

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!
