Take care over Spring Break!

Image result for spring break orthodontics

With spring break right around the corner, people everywhere are looking forward to warmer weather, sleeping late, & plenty of fun! 

While vacationing (or staycationing) please try to avoid banned foods - ones that are hard, sticky, chewy, or crunchy. Foods like taffy or nuts can bend or break your wires & brackets, leaving you with poking wires or loose brackets during your vacation.

Going to the movies? Avoid popcorn please.  This snack can break brackets and bend wires. Headed to a BBQ?  Don't eat corn on the cob or meat with bones, like ribs or chicken wings.  Corn on the cob can get stuck in your braces and bones in meat can loosen your brackets if you bite down too hard.

Even if you eat only approved foods, remember to have wax handy just in case. The wax will help to keep a loose bracket or wires in place until an office visit can be made.

Regardless of what your plans are during spring break, remember to choose your foods wisely, keeping in mind your braces & oral health. 

Invisalign patients - make sure to keep your trays clean - and always brush and floss your teeth too!


Most importantly have a blast on your vacation and
remember to always brush & floss!

It's costume and candy time again!

At Prose Orthodontics, we recognize that Halloween can be a scary
time for teeth!

That’s why during Orthodontic Health Month we are taking the time to discuss some tips and advice to help keep teeth safe from decay, and protect braces, clear aligners and other orthodontic appliances.

Stay away from hard, sticky, crunchy or chewy candy and snacks. Some of these are:
  • Hard or chewy candies
  • Caramel
  • Licorice
  • Taffy
  • Bubblegum (even the sugarless kind)
  • Jelly beans
However, all this does not mean that you cannot enjoy Halloween candy.
There are many delicious sweet choices that are “braces friendly”. Those in orthodontic treatment can indulge by eating soft, nut-free candies, soft candy bars, peppermint patties, peanut butter cups or chocolates that melt in the mouth and require no chewing.

We are also buying back your Halloween candy in exchange for Rewards Points!

If you have any questions please ask. We are here to keep your braces in tip-top shape!

Did you know that Dr. Prose is a Board Certified Orthodontist?

There’s a reason Dr. Prose went to additional years of highly competitive orthodontic school...
to learn and perfect his ability in the
specialty of orthodontics. 

A general dentist is ideal for providing regular oral health check-ups, comparable to your family doctor.  Many dentists offer orthodontic treatment plans, but have not been trained or educated in the area.

Getting board certified is the final step in a long and comprehensive journey.  To become certified, Dr. Prose tackled hundreds of extra hours of studying and training. Next, he had to prove (through testing) that he had the skills, knowledge, and expert judgement to provide premium patient care.

Check out this video from the American Board of Orthodontics to learn more about why Dr. Prose became board certified.

Below are the stages of becoming a Board Certified Orthodontist
