National Orthodontic Month
Did you know that more than 1.2 million American adults currently have braces? It just shows how important our smiles are to us! There’s even a whole month dedicated to celebrating orthodontic dentistry! At Lyons Orthodontics, we are celebrating National Orthodontic month by spreading awareness about orthodontics!
What Is Orthodontic Treatment?
Dr. Tim Lyons, a Folsom orthodontist, explains that in simple terms, orthodontic treatment is aimed at creating the perfect alignment between your teeth and jaw. There are a variety of ways to achieve your perfect smile. These orthodontic treatments include braces, retainers, Invisalign clear aligners, and many others.
At Lyons Orthodontics, we specialize in creating perfect smiles for our patients. We genuinely care about each smile and the person behind it. The goal is always to give you the smile of your dreams! That’s why we offer a FREE no-obligation, smile consultation. Just contact us at our El Dorado Hills or Fair Oaks location, and we’ll get you started on your Just Smile journey!
The Importance of Orthodontic Treatment
A Healthy Bite. Dr. Tim Lyons points out that a healthy bite is a happy bite. When your jaw isn’t properly positioned, you are at risk of having problems while chewing or speaking, and you could even develop sleep apnea over time. We don’t want that! Invisalign aligners or braces are the perfect solutions to obtaining a healthy bite.
Proper Teeth Alignment. We asked our friend, Dr. Kristina Neda, a dentist in Georgetown, KY, about the importance of proper teeth alignment. Dr. Neda says that when your teeth line up correctly, they work seamlessly, and you will not have any problem as you eat, speak, or smile! Plus, you get that gorgeous smile you’ve always dreamt of.
An Aesthetically Pleasing Smile. At Lyons Orthodontics, we take smile transformations seriously. We’ll be here every step of the way, making sure that you are on track for the perfect smile. If you’re on the fence about starting your Just Smile journey, see one of our orthodontists in El Dorado Hills or Fair Oaks.
What You Can Do This National Orthodontic Health Month
Since this is a National Orthodontic Health Month, you may be wondering what you can do to join in on the fun! Our Lyons Orthodontics team wants you to grab a friend or family member and try the following:
- First things first, visit Lyons Orthodontics for you or your child’s first orthodontic assessment. This visit will allow Dr. Tim Lyons to identify any developing issues and make an action plan. Plus, you’ll get to see how awesome our orthodontic offices and team members are!
- Ask your local orthodontist some questions about starting orthodontic treatment. There are some misconceptions about orthodontic treatments, so if you’re unsure, just ask! Our Lyons team is happy to help you with anything you or your child needs.
- Lastly, ake ortho-friendly plans for Halloween! Stock up on pure yummy chocolate instead of hard and chewy candies. Educate your family members about the best and worst Halloween candy for your teeth.
We look forward to meeting you and your family this October at our El Dorado Hills and Fair Oaks Lyons Orthodontics offices! We’re so excited to help you start your Just Smile Journey.
