For those who don’t know, October is National Orthodontic Health Month. This month-long event is organized by our pals at the American Association of Orthodontists, or AAO.
Dr. Mark Hablinski and our team realize this is a great opportunity for us and to raise awareness about the importance of oral hygiene. National Orthodontic Health Month also aims to recognize the dedicated work of orthodontists like Dr. Hablinski and other dental professional in Houston.
The AAO recommends patients avoid the following Halloween treats, or recipes with these ingredients:
• Popcorn (including un-popped kernels)
• Jelly beans
• Hard pretzels
If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call, or ask Dr. Hablinski during your visit this month!
