Back to School With Braces

Summer break is at an end in Lubbock, TX which means most of you are back to school already. We at Wentz Orthodontics would like to give a few helpful tips to ease you back into the school routine!

Here are some Back to School Tips for you all from Dr. Wentz and Dr. Reeves:
  • Remember to grab enough packs of elastics for both school and at home! Rubber bands align your bite, so not wearing them could make your treatment time longer.
  • Practice the 2X2 brushing rule: Brush TWO times a day for TWO minutes!
  • Don’t forget your water bottle! Drinking water throughout the day prevents cavities and keeps your mouth healthy and clean.
  • At lunchtime, try eating some green vegetables, meat and poultry. Avoid hard foods, chips, soft drinks and sports drinks.
  • Don’t forget to smile! Show off your beautiful new smile to your friends and family and tell them to come visit us at Wentz Orthodontics to start an adventure to building an incredible smile too.
At Wentz Orthodontics, we will work together to remove the barriers that are preventing you from having the smile you deserve.
