Did you know that right now, millions of people in the U.S. are undergoing some form of orthodontic treatment? Choosing to address the issues with your smile is a big deal and should be celebrated! That’s why the month of October is National Orthodontic Health Month! Whether you’re sporting a shiny set of braces or have opted for clear aligners, you’re taking the leap into the world of orthodontics to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
About National Orthodontic Health Month
During this month-long observance, orthodontists everywhere are celebrating and promoting the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile. Throughout the month, many orthodontists will be holding events and speaking at various locations to show why orthodontics is so important.
National Orthodontic Health Month was created by orthodontists and other dental professionals as an awareness campaign to help others learn about the benefits of orthodontic care. Many orthodontists host ‘meet and greet’ opportunities at local community events and at the office to help those who are on the fence about orthodontic treatment get the information they need to make a decision about their smile.
A great way for you to celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month is to meet some of the orthodontists in your area and see if treatment is right for you.

The field of orthodontics not only helps patients achieve the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted, but it can also help alleviate pain and discomfort caused by certain issues with the teeth. These issues may include:
