October is National Orthodontic Health Month

October 1st, 2018

Benedict Orthodontics would like you to know that October is National Orthodontic Health month. The recommended age for a first orthodontic evaluation is the age of 7. By the time a child reaches the age of 7, they most likely have their first set of permanent molars in (6 year molars or 1st molars), which are almost always necessary to have when starting treatment. Not all 7 year old children are ready for orthodontic treatment, however some may require treatment early to help prevent additional problems or complications in the future. At Benedict Orthodontics, your child will not be treated for orthodontic treatment unless it is necessary. If your child is too young or does not appear to have problems that need to be addressed at an early age, Dr Brian Benedict will consider your child to be in “observation” status within his office. This means, that Dr Benedict will monitor the growth of the patient, either on a 6 month or a yearly basis, until the patient appears to be ready for treatment. In some cases, this may mean that the patient would not be ready for orthodontic treatment until their teenage years.

Consultation appointments at Benedict Orthodontics are at no cost to you. An initial exam appointment includes photographs of the patient and 2 orthodontic x-rays (panoramic and cephalometric). You will also meet Dr Benedict and our Treatment Coordinator, Lauren, for an initial exam appointment. Once Dr Benedict has evaluated the patient, our Treatment Coordinator will then discuss the treatment plan (if needed at this time) and the financial responsibility if the patient is ready for treatment. At Benedict Orthodontics, no payment is needed from you until you agree to start treatment with us.

We have an open door policy and encourage parents to be with their child for their appointments. We hope to provide you with excellent costumer service and the comfort to feel at ease in our office.

Happy Harvest

September 10th, 2018

 

The weather is cooling down and football season has begun. It’s that time of year for flannel shirts, hoodies, campfires, and hot chocolate. However, with all the excitement of fall, don’t forget your daily orthodontic care. Remember to wear you rubber bands as instructed and brush your teeth after every time you eat. Dental Hygiene is very important and must not be missed. Even though you have braces, we encourage you to continue your regular dental cleaning every 6 months.
