Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and Glaser Orthodontics near Montrose is here to help with your orthodontic treatment concerns around Thanksgiving foods and braces. Fortunately, there are brace friendly foods like mash potatoes that are plentiful at Thanksgiving meals.
Thanksgiving is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the U.S. and it has been a tradition for over 150 years. With this holiday coming up, we expect many of our patients near Montrose to be spending time with friends, family and of course, food! Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, gravy and pies! It’s hard to eat sensible on Thanksgiving Day, but we at Glaser Orthodontics are here to remind you how to keep your teeth and braces in mind with this plethora of food. Here are some tips:
Pilgrims didn’t drink soda and you shouldn’t either! With all the sugar that is packed in traditional thanksgiving food, the added sugar in soda is definitely not necessary. Instead of cracking open a can of your favorite carbonated drink opt for milk or water. You don’t want that sugar to get trapped by your braces. Your teeth will thank you later when you save them from stains and decay.
Ask anyone and they will say that turkey makes them sleepy. Although we can’t deny that we want to take a power nap after feasting, this myth is actually not true! If you still feel yourself falling asleep after eating, remember to brush and floss before you snooze to prevent junk food from wearing away at your teeth especially for brace wearers. That small but vital step can help you and your teeth rest easy.
Although it is tempting, do not try to crack nuts with your teeth! Many like to snack on nuts during Thanksgiving, and teeth are great tools, but use a nutcracker instead to save your teeth and a trip to Glaser Orthodontics to fix damaged braces.
Don’t become too stressed. Stress can lead to poor oral habits, and although it’s hard to stop and take a breather around this busy holiday, holidays are a time to make great memories with your family and friends.
For more tips on oral habits around orthodontic treatments near Montrose or for a consultation, please contact Glaser Orthodontics or visit our office near Montrose. Happy Thanksgiving!

Caring for your smile does not stop once the braces come off. In fact, that is just beginning. Retention is a key component of oral care, and Glaser Orthodontics near Garrison understands that many people do not realize the true importance of wearing your retainer after their braces are done. Here are a few things we want our patients to keep in mind.
Always follow Glaser Orthodontics instructions. Retainers generally should be worn over night, every night. However, in some cases they may need to be worn more. It is important to follow exactly what Glaser Orthodontics recommends, as these instructions are specifically designed to keep your teeth looking their best.
If you notice your teeth beginning to move contact us immediately. Losing all the progress you made is never fun, and if you let it get too out of hand you may have to go through treatment all over again. This can be costly, time consuming and of course inconvenient. This can be avoided by calling Dr. Glaser when the problem first begins.
While a bit uncomfortable, a little bit of pain is to be expected when wearing a retainer. This occurs because your mouth is adjusting to changes in the pressure and alignment of the teeth. Do not worry if you feel a little bit of discomfort at first, or, after having missed a few days of wear, but if the pain becomes too severe call Dr. Glaser.
Ensure that you are keep track of your retainer and care for it properly. Because of its removable nature, it may be easy to misplace your appliance. When removing your retainer always put it in a safe place such as your plastic case. Also, do not forget to be hygienic. Brush your retainer to keep it as clean as possible so that your teeth will be as beautiful as possible.

Dr. Barry J. Glaser of Glaser Orthodontics is treating many teens and adults in Cortlandt Manor, NY with In-Ovation C. These are like the type of braces actor Tom Cruise had. As with traditional braces, these ceramic braces follow the same basic principles, however they are a bit larger and brittle.
