As much as we hate to admit it, the beginning of August is a reminder in a few short weeks, Back to School activities will be in full swing! Kennell Orthodontics wants to send your children back to school prepared for school life with braces or new orthodontic treatments. Pack your child their very own "Back to School with Braces" kit - something as simple as a ziplock plastic bag including items such as: Orthopicks, orthodontic rubber bands, mini toothbrush and toothpaste, orthodontic wax, small mirror, floss, retainer case and tissues. This kit can easily be tucked into their backpack or locker and will help as a reminder of orthodontic care even when at school. Start the school year off right with these reminders:
- bring retainer cases to lunch room and keep retainer in it to avoid accidentally throwing it away with lunch trash;
- always wear protective mouth guard for all fall sports - this will help prevent brackets from breaking and inner lip from rubbing against braces.
Stay ahead of the Back to School shopping rush by preparing these orthodontic kits now - kick back and enjoy the last weeks of summer!!
