Image result for summer camp smiles

We are so excited that the hot weather has finally arrived &
summer feels like it is finally here!

At Prose Orthodontics we want to make sure that you enjoy your summer while taking care of your braces, aligners, & oral care. 

While packing for a family vacation or summer camp, remember to bring along everything you need to take care for your braces or aligners.  Also, if you are in any summer sports make sure to have a mouthguard with you to protect your teeth & braces.

Forgetting to care for your teeth & braces can lead to various dental issues & could prolong your treatment time.  When your bags are getting packed make sure you bring along the following:

  • Toothbrush 
  • Toothpaste
  • Floss
  • Christmas tree brushes
  • Orthodontic wax
  • Mouthwash
  • Extra case for retainers/aligners
In case of an emergency make sure to have contact information for a local orthodontic office near where you will be staying.  If you can't visit an orthodontic office during your trip, make sure to schedule an appointment with us as soon as possible to have the issue fixed.



At picnics or outings make sure to avoid summer treats like sticky/hard candies, corn on the cob, popcorn, or really hard pretzels & chips. 

Please call with any questions & have a great summer!
