OX Orthodontix - Dental Monitoring for the Busy Mom

Dental Monitoring for the Busy Mom

We can describe how Dental Monitoring, orthodontics via virtual appointments, works and why we think it’s amazing, but we mentioned the topic in our waiting room and one of our patients, Tracey, was happy to talk about her positive experience with remote monitoring.

Tracey is very familiar with OX Orthodontix as she has two children who are patients. Finally, she decided it was her turn for a beautiful smile. She needed a personalized treatment plan that fit her busy lifestyle.

Tracey works full time as a Science teacher in Howard County. She’s energetic and very knowledgeable about how orthodontic treatment works since both her children started orthodontic treatment with OX Orthodontix. Tracey is in her own treatm...

OX Orthodontix - Do Direct to Consumer Aligners Work?

Do Direct to Consumer Aligners Work?

There’s been quite a buzz generated over the past couple of years about direct to consumer aligners that allow people to skip visiting an orthodontist in order to get straight teeth. Direct to consumer clear aligners are now being offered by several companies that promise you can improve your imperfect smile on your own, without the help of a licensed orthodontist, to save yourself a considerable amount of time and money. So what’s the real deal with this at-home orthodontic treatment? Is it a good idea?

Recognizing National Orthodontic Health Month at OX Orthodontix

temp-post-image
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.


OX's October Events

All month long, we’ll offer information on good oral hygiene and braces-friendly recipes. In addition, our staff will participate in our annual pumpkin decorating contest with patients able to vote for their favorites. Plus, patients are invited to participate in our candy buybac...
