How are you? It’s a simple question, just three little words. If we were to ask you, “How are you today?”, the majority of you would say, “I’m fine”. Our society has trained us to think that this is the right answer. But when you think about it, this response has little meaning.
This is a very common question we are asked as you walk through our front doors at Studebaker Orthodontics. Just to shake things up a little bit, the next time someone asks you, “How are you?”, answer with something other than, “fine”. This will open the dialogue for some real or interesting conversation.
According to “Dr. Google”, here are some common one word answers……….Thankful, Happy, Crazy, Fabulous, Blessed, Excited, Sleepy, Hopeful, Nervous, and there are many more.
We ask you that question, and we sincerely care and are concerned for you. We always have our listening ears on and are prepared to get to know you. We may even ask you, “What is the best part of your day so far?”. We know your answer will be, coming to see us at Studebaker Ortho.
So next time you’re in the office, let us know how you really are, and if you’re having a great day. We’re here and we’re listening!

You've made an investment on spending money on getting braces, so why not keep your teeth in good health while undergoing orthodontic treatment? Dr. Robert Studebaker and our team at Studebaker Orthodontics will tell you it is just as important to develop a regular hygiene routine while you're wearing braces as you did before proceeding with treatment.
Flossing is essential to the health of your teeth and gums when you're wearing braces. Because braces may hold food, sugars and liquids upon eating, it is very important to keep on top of your brushing and flossing, as well as visiting our office for regular adjustments.
While we know it's tough enough to get kids to floss daily without braces, that battle becomes even tougher when braces are involved. Remember that by not flossing, you will become more prone to cavities and gum disease during your treatment.
When flossing, remember to gently massage your gums in between the teeth. You will find that flossing with braces takes extra time, as you will have to weave the floss through each bracket. When flossing, there should be no signs of blood. If you see blood, you are not flossing enough or properly.
Using an electric toothbrush is also a good idea to massage your gums before or after flossing as electric toothbrushes can help remove any harmful bacteria that are lingering in your mouth. And don't forget to add a mouthwash to your routine to break up any bacteria that has formed. A good mouthwash will help keep your teeth and gums in good shape during your treatment.
If you have any questions about flossing or your orthodontic treatment at Studebaker Orthodontics please don't hesitate to give us a call or during your next adjustment appointment!
