Inclement Weather Policy

November 28th, 2018

With Inclement weather bound to happen at anytime we wanted to remind you of our office policy. As per our office policy when school buses are cancelled in the area (Goderich and Wingham) we also cancel our patient day. This is to ensure the safety of our team as well as the safety of our patients.

All patients will be contacted via phone to reschedule their appointments. We ask that you keep an eye on our Facebook page in the event of bad weather.

Problems to Check in Seven Year Olds

August 17th, 2017

It is recommend that every child should see an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. This could be as young as 2 or 3 in some cases. Many orthodontic problems are easier to correct if detected early rather than waiting until jaw growth has slowed. Early treatment can mean a patient may avoid surgery or other more serious corrections later in life. This image shows for problems to watch for in seven year olds. #babyrojasortho #age7 #orthodonticspecialists

When Should My Child See An Orthodontist?

March 9th, 2017

When should my child see an orthodontist?

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, the best age for children to be seen by an orthodontist for the first time is 7. Not all dental problems can be treated until a child has lost all of their baby teeth, but other issues can be better managed with early intervention. Take a look at this helpful chart below that shows problems to watch for in seven year olds.

If interested in setting an appointment up with our team visit www.londonbraces.com or call 519-675-0330. No referral ever needed.

Thank You Rebecca

Cold and Flu Season Ahead

December 18th, 2016

It’s that time of year to start thinking about protecting yourself and your family from the flu. Here are some simple steps you can take to help yourself avoid colds and the flu this season.

• Wash your hands before and after brushing
• Allow the brush to air dry after each use, harmful bacteria dies after being exposed to oxygen
• Store the toothbrush in an upright position to allow water to drain and dry faster...
• Replace toothbrush after every cold or flu or every 3-4 months when bristles appear worn

To promote a healthy and clean environment, we and our team give a great deal of attention to sanitation and sterilization in our office at all times, as well as following all requirements for sterilizing instruments and work surfaces.

For the protection of other patients and our staff, we always ask that patients reschedule their appointments if they have any type of cold or illness that can infect others.

Hope this helps and give us a call if you have any questions! Stay healthy!

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.

Happy Halloween to all! Remember "scary things come to those who do not brush." :) We hope you all have fabulous time tonight and to all our great patients wearing braces or other orthodontic appliances PLEASE watch what you eat. Hard, crunchy, chewy treats could damage your brackets and wires.. Try to enjoy the softer treats and don't forget to brush and floss!!

Way to go Huron Perth Lakers!

October 24th, 2016

We are so proud you and look forward to more updates throughout the season. Here is a picture mom took after the win.

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.

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.

Real Patient Review of Our Orthodontic Office

August 17th, 2016

We have the best patients! Thank you for the review!

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

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.

Tips for taking care of your retainer!

January 17th, 2016

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.

Ceph X-Ray at your Records Appointment, London, Orthodontist

October 26th, 2015

This short video shows what you can expect during your "Ceph" x- ray at your records appointment.

The cephalometric (ceph) x-ray captures the patient from their side profile. Once the ceph is taken our orthodontists will contact analyses on your radiograph. It is a valuable x-ray as it not only shows the teeth and the bone, but it also includes soft tissues which can help the orthodontist predict how the bone will structure, and its potential to change during orthodontic treatment. ‪#‎cephxray‬ ‪#‎londonbraces‬ ‪#‎londonorthodontist‬

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 15th, 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.

Wade Collins is a self taught musician. He has a strong passion for music, playing; gui...tar, drums, keyboard, and harmonica. He likes to perform many different genres of famous songs, and also loves singing and writing his own original music.

He has written, and created two CDs so far. The songs on his first CD "Finding Oneself" were written, composed, performed, and recorded solely by Wade when he was 15. His second, and more recent, CD was created by his band "Escape Claws". Most of the material in this self titled album "Escape Claws", was again: composed, written and performed by Wade. Along with one song, and many melodies written and sung by bass player Jeff Klasen; and drums performed by Wade's father, Rob Collins.

Both CDs feature a large variety in sound and style, and are a nice break from the usual; to be enjoyed by many.

Here is a link to the latest Escape Claws album on Itunes:

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!

Summer is here! Summer foods to avoid with braces!

July 2nd, 2014

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)

ICE

Uncooked vegetables such as carrots, celery

Apples! No biting into apples, if you would like to enjoy simply cut into bit size pieces

Popcorn

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!

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:

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/

Mouthguards!

August 21st, 2013

See what Health Canada has to say about mouth guards and their importance in the link provided below!

While in braces it is just and important to have a mouth guard. A properly fitted mouth guard is especially important for people who wear braces. A blow to the face while playing sports could damage the brackets or other fixed orthodontic appliances.  A mouth guard also provides a barrier between the braces and your cheek or lips, limiting the risk of soft tissue injuries.

We are fully booked for same day mouth guard deliveries this Saturday at our Mouthguard Clinic with the London Knights, but you can still come by for an impression and have your mouth guard given to you on another day. Protecting your smile is very important to us and we hope you can join us!

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.

How much do you know about your toothbrush?

August 29th, 2012


People have been brushing their teeth for thousands of years! In fact, the first “toothbrush” was created around 3000BC! Ancient civilizations used a thin twig with a frayed edge to rub against their teeth for cleaning.

The first toothbrush with bristles – similar to today’s toothbrushes – was invented in 1498 in China. Brushes were made out of bone or bamboo with bristles made from the hairs on the back of a hog’s neck.

It wasn’t until 1938 that the first nylon bristle toothbrush was introduced and people quickly became aware of practicing good oral hygiene.

Here are some other interesting facts about your toothbrush (and toothpaste):
• Most people are said to use blue toothbrushes over any other color
• The first toothpaste was used in 500 BC in China and India
• On average, children smile about 400 times per day
• Your toothbrush should be replaced every two months
• The first known toothpaste was used in 1780, Crest was introduced in 1955 and Colgate in 1873

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.

What's a palatal expander and why would I need one?

July 20th, 2012

A palatal expander "expands" (or widens) your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars and is used to make the bottom and upper teeth fit together better. It also makes more room for teeth and helps to promote a broader, more aesthetic smile.

Palatal expansion is usually not painful, but you may feel some minor discomfort. It’ll take a little time for you to get used to your appliance, so you may experience difficulty speaking and swallowing for the first day or two.

Adjusting your appliance as directed will ensure you keep on schedule with the rest of your orthodontic treatment plan. It takes about a few weeks to achieve the desired amount of expansion, after which you’ll keep wearing your expander for about six months, giving time for the new bone to form and stabilize. Our team at will give you detailed instructions about how to adjust your appliance and can answer any questions you may have about your palatal expander.

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.

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.

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!
