Back To School Orthodontic Reminders
Posted on 08/16/2016

Here at Dr. Carole Randolph’s office in Valencia, CA, we are proud to offer top-tier care for our patients. We are passionate about what we do, and are devoted to making your smile beautiful, healthy, and something to be proud of. We love working with students, and have compiled a list of orthodontic tips to keep in mind when the school year approaches, as a friendly reminder to always take good care of your smile. We happily work with students from many high schools in the surrounding area such as Valencia High School, Saugus High School, West Ranch High School, Bowman High School, and more.

Orthodontic Tips To Keep in Mind:

  • Remember your retainer case.
  • Try to avoid hard or chewy foods - it’s not worth it!
  • Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, for two minutes each time. Consider even bringing your toothbrush to school so you can brush after lunch.
  • Keep an extra pair of elastics in your backpack.
  • Consider bringing a compact mirror with you to school so you can check to see if there is anything in your braces if you’re not near a restroom.
  • Backpacks are great for storing any dental care products that you decide to bring to school with you.
  • If you play sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your braces and your mouth.
  • Drink water throughout the day! It will help keep you mouth clean and prevent cavities.
