October: National Orthodontic Health Month!

Happy October! For those who don’t know, it’s National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by the American Association of Orthodontists. We here at Davis Orthodontics realize that this is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Davis and other dental professionals in San Diego and Escondido.

The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:
• Caramel
• Nuts
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Taffy
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
• Licorice
• Bubblegum
• Taco chips
• Ice
