June is National Smile Month! From Orchin Orthodontics

Now that we’re in June, Dr. Orchin and team thought we’d tell you June is National Smile Month, which is a great time to remind all our patients to practice good oral hygiene between your visits to Orchin Orthodontics.

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

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

If you have questions about any of these tips, we encourage you to give us a call at (202) 686-5100!

We want everyone to get out there and share your beautiful smiles with the world! Have a terrific weekend!
