Dr. Gates and team, supporting National Smile Month

According to our friends at the American Dental Association, a person's smile outranked eyes, hair and body as the most important physical feature, which is why it's important for us at Round Rock Orthodontics to support National Smile Month this June.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to improve your oral health during your treatment so that you may celebrate National Smile Month for many, many years to come:

* Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Here's a helpful clip showing you how to brush with your braces on.
* Floss every day to clean between your teeth.
* Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks during your orthodontic treatment.
* Visit your dentist regularly (usually every six months apart) in addition to seeing Dr. Paul Gates.

If you have questions about any of these tips, we encourage you to give us a call at 512-244-2644. Have a great rest of the week!!
