70-Drinking-waterDid you know that water is one of the most important factors of our daily diet and makes up 60% of your body weight?

At Elliott Orthodontics we understand that every organ in your body is dependent on water so it can flush out toxins and carry food to your body cells and thought this was a good topic for our blog. Think about how it feels when your nose and throat are dry. This is usually due to dehydration or not enough water in your body. Every day you lose water through your breath, perspiration, urine, and bowel movements. For your body to function properly, you must replenish its water supply by consuming beverages and foods that contain water, especially during the summer months when temperatures rise and you and your family are more active.Read more on Are You and Your Children Drinking Enough Water?…

Is it what can I eat? How do I brush?

No… When do I get my braces off?

When Do I get my braces off While most patients are always eager to start treatment, they are even more eager to get them off. Even though each patient is given an estimated treatment time wearing braces when they start, patients always hope we can wave our magic wands and complete the process sooner.

It makes sense that a patient may assume they are ahead of schedule when their teeth look straight in a mirror. Unfortunately, orthodontics isn’t just about straight teeth. The ultimate goal of good orthodontic treatment result is a beautiful smile as well as a healthy bite that lasts a lifetime.Read more on What is the most Common Question Asked During Orthodontic Treatment?…
