What You Might Have Missed from the Northenden House Blog!
As a dedicated orthodontic practice the team at Northenden House always strive to deliver the best customer care, providing patients with their expert tips and advice on orthodontics and the latest in the industry.
This year we’ve aimed to share key news and guidance with you on our blog, whether you’re considering teeth straightening options, are undergoing orthodontic treatment or simply want to improve your oral health.
As we’re now just over halfway through, we thought we’d round-up some of our top blogs from the year that you may have missed:
Improving your smile with orthodontics
At the start of 2016 we looked at working on those New Year’s resolutions, and how transforming your smile can greatly improve your confidence. Research has shown that the smile is deemed one of the most attractive and first-noticed features of a person, however many adults are self-conscious of their teeth and lack the confidence to smile or laugh in the company of others.
In our blog promoting a ‘new year, new you’, we detailed the variety of treatments to help you get the smile that you desire, from hidden braces to clear aligners.
How can orthodontic treatment benefit children?
Having a great smile through teeth straightening orthodontics can make a lasting difference to a child’s self-esteem, as well as their overall health. But as a parent you may be concerned about what age your child should have orthodontic treatment, what type of treatment will be best for them and what’s involved.
The help of celebrities and social media are making dental braces more popular
Despite being very effective we know that traditional metal braces have never been a massively popular thing – in fact many adults chose not to wear braces as teens through fear of being seen as a ‘metal-mouth’.
Luckily though nowadays dental braces are much less bulkier and a good deal more comfortable. And the number of people opting for braces has significantly grown with the help of celebrities and advocacy on popular social media sites. We report on the growing trend of people sharing their orthodontic journey online, and how one celeb in particular made dental braces seem a lot more viable for adults in the UK.
Looking after our oral health – National Smile Month
From the 16th May to the 16th June, The British Oral Health Foundation ran its annual National Smile Month campaign, aiming to increase awareness of oral health and get us smiling!
We provided some top tips on looking after your oral health, including maintaining a good oral routine and teeth-friendly diet.
How to take care of your braces on holiday
If you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment and will be going on holiday this year, you can still relax and fully enjoy your time away. However, it’s always best to be prepared, and by reading our blog you’ll be able to know what to take away with you to keep your braces, teeth and gums in top condition, as well as what to do should your braces become damaged.
