Fall Newsletter 2011

 
 

Hello from Pavlo Orthodontics!
We have lots of helpful tips and information to share with you in our fall newsletter. Since October is National Orthodontic Health Month, we want to share some recipes and treats that are safe to eat while in treatment. If you haven't heard, our “Guess the Ghost” contest has begun and it's not only spooky, but very challenging. Also, this month we are preparing for our Annual Halloween Candy Trade-In Program which begins the day after Halloween.

We had a busy summer launching our new website with improved resources, patient before and after images, and useful information about our goals for you. If you haven’t seen our new website, please take a look and drop us a note on our Facebook page telling us what you think! We’d love to hear from you!

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside:
• National Orthodontic Health Month
• Fall Contest: Guess the Ghost
• September Contest Winners
• Annual Halloween Candy Trade-In Program
• Annual Newburyport Scarecrow Contest
• Oral Hygiene Focus: Oral-B Vitality Electric Toothbrushes
• Technology Focus: Damon Clear
• Continuing Education: NESO Conference

As always, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind referrals of friends and family to our practice. Trusting us with your friends for care is the greatest compliment you could give us.


National Orthodontic Health Month
NOHMposter_thbOctober is National Orthodontic Health Month. Many treats can cause havoc for trick-or-treaters who are going through orthodontic treatment. These treats can potentially cause damage that may prolong treatment time. Learn about which treats are friendlier to braces and which ones should be avoided. A few sweets can be okay occasionally, provided that the orthodontic patient remembers to brush and floss after eating them.

Oral Hygiene Focus: Oral-B Vitality Electric Toothbrushes
CM Capture 6Did you know that electric toothbrushes with a rotation oscillation action reduce plaque and gingivitis more than those with a side-to-side action?

This year, the Cochrane Collaboration issued a new systematic review comparing powered toothbrushes for plaque and gingival health. The review showed that brushes with a rotation oscillation action reduced plaque and gingivitis more than those with a side-to-side action in the short term (4 to 12 weeks). The rotation-oscillation toothbrush technology, introduced by Oral-B® in 1991, is used in leading Oral-B electric toothbrushes such as the Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 with SmartGuide.

Dr. Pavlo is now recommending Oral-B electric toothbrushes to his family of patients based on the recent findings of this study.


Technology Focus: The Clear Choice
damonlogoWhy settle for the limitations of traditional clear braces or invisible aligners like Invisalign™ when there's Damon Clear™?

Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results. Dr. Pavlo has been using Damon Clear Braces since their release in 2009. These braces combine the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth. Damon Clear uses what's called a "passive" slide mechanism to maintain archwires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction and binding, so your teeth can move quickly and more comfortably.
