The holidays are just around the corner! And what better time for the team at Medland Orthodontics in Brisbane and the Gold Coast to wish you a safe and happy holiday season!
After a busy year perfecting smiles, we are all looking forward to quality time spent with family and friends during the festive season. But first, our orthodontists have these tips for braces and Invisalign patients over the indulgent holiday period.
Orthodontic Tips for the Holidays
- Braces wearers, beware hard food like toffee and candy canes, these have the potential to get stuck between or break wires.
- Invisalign patients, don’t forget to wear your aligners after Christmas lunch or leave them off for longer than 2 hours a day
- Don’t wrap your aligners in a napkin while you eat, lest they get thrown out with the wishbones!
- Holiday periods are always a time for indulgence, but don’t forgo your dental hygiene: with extra sweets comes extra dental responsibility. Flossing and brushing are paramount to avoid cavities and build up.
Medland Orthodontics in both Brisbane and the Gold Coast will have reduced hours during the holidays. If you need to contact us during these hours, please call our clinic or send us an email, we will get back to you as soon as possible.
