Recognizing National Orthodontic Health Month at OX Orthodontix

Throughout October, the orthodontists and staff at OX Orthodontix will help raise awareness of National Orthodontic Health Month and the benefits of good orthodontic health. Orthodontic care has a positive impact on long-term dental health and self-esteem. The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to create a healthy bite — straight teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew, and speak.
