For our team at Kai Orthodontics, it’s hard to believe October is already upon us! October marks National Orthodontic Health Month, and this month-long event is organized by our friends at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.
We know there are many treats can cause havoc for trick-or-treaters who are going through treatment at Kai Orthodontics, and these treats may cause damage that could prolong your treatment time. The AAO recommends our patients avoid the following Halloween treats:
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
If you damage your braces, please give Drs. Kai and our staff a call immediately. Typically, small problems can be solved by giving us a call. Loose brackets or wires can usually be made more comfortable by applying some wax until you are able to come into our office, located in San Jose or Campbell.
See you soon!
