October is National Orthodontic Health Month

October is National Orthodontic Health Month

What does the month of October mean to you?

For people in the northern hemisphere, October is when the weather starts to get a little chilly; heavy jackets might come out of storage and the summer clothing gets packed away. You might start making plans for the upcoming holidays or start looking at the beautiful and changing autumn scenery. October means something a little different to our team at Childers Orthodontics because October is National Orthodontic Health Month. During October, orthodontic clinics all over the country work together to promote their services and inform the community about the important work we do.

National Orthodontic Health Month is an awareness campaign created cooperatively by orthodontists and other dental health professionals. During this month, we make a special effort to promote dental health and orthodontic health in particular. This is a great time to get your questions answered by dental professionals in your community and to learn more about exactly what an orthodontist can do for you and your family. Events held in connection with National Orthodontic Health Month are also an opportunity for us orthodontists to come out and meet community members. If you have never been to an orthodontist before, you might not know what to expect. Meeting one of us in person before your checkup is a great way to find out what kind of person you’ll be seeing during your appointment.

Meet Dr. Kyle Childers

Meeting Dr. Kyle Childers in a relaxed “meet and greet” atmosphere can be especially helpful for any young orthodontic patients in your family. Kids of all ages–and their parents–often feel anxious about going to the dentist. Getting to know the person you have an appointment with can make the experience a lot less stressful for everyone. We don’t want anyone to avoid seeing a dental professional for regular checkups just because they don’t know who we are. Just meeting and talking with the orthodontist you’ll be seeing may be enough to make you feel more comfortable about your upcoming appointment.

Dental health is something that affects everyone; healthy teeth and gums contribute to a healthy smile and a lifetime of comfort and well-being. Orthodontists are just one of the various dental practitioners you could visit at some point in your life, so taking a little time to learn who we are and what we do is certain to be a helpful experience.

Book an appointment with Dr. Kyle today! We look forward to seeing you and your family this October at our Benton, Harrisburg or Herrin, IL location.

October is National Orthodontic Health Month!

Preferred Invisalign Provider - Dr. Kyle Childers

Dr. Childers has been recognized as being the best of the best by Invisalign!

/p>

Dr. Kyle Childers, a local orthodontist, Invisalign® Elite Preferred Provider, and designated Invisalign Teen Provider, has been recognized by Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign, as having patients selected as the top 100 best cases among orthodontists across North America.  The top 100 cases were selected based on clinical complexity and an efficiency of treatment for the patient and the quality of the final results.  From the thousands of cases submitted for consideration, the Top 100 were chosen by a panel of experienced Invisalign Orthodontists from across North America, as well as members of Align Technology’s Clinical Advisory Board.  The recognition is given each year to orthodontists who achieve and demonstrate an extraordinary level of expertise with the Invisalign treatment and are able to showcase great clinical results with very complex cases.

Dr. Childers is well-respected in the field of dental health.  He is an outstanding practitioner who provides his patients with unparalleled care and the latest treatments in orthodontics.  Align Technology congratulates Dr. Kyle Childers and his entire team for their commitment to continuing education and excellence in clinical skill!

Dr. Childers has consistently been on the leading edge of the newest proven technologies in the orthodontic field. He was among the first to use lasers and provide SureSmile® treatment, and he is especially proud to be the first in Southern Illinois to offer 3-dimensional teeth imaging technology via the iTero scanner for Invisalign® patients.

Dr. Childers was born and raised in Marion, Il.  He and his wife, Deidre, reside in Marion with their four children, Mason, Kate, Alec, and Tessa.

April is National Facial Protection Month

National Facial Protection Month

The Importance of Facial Protection

Americans from all walks of life should mark April as National Facial Protection Month on their calendars. The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry, Academy for Sports Dentistry, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons have combined forces to sponsor this annual campaign, which aims to educate and remind us of the importance of protecting our face and teeth against impacts and injuries.

Preventing Head Injuries

Wearing a helmet can save your life and prevent devastating physical damage in a variety of situations, from playing football to riding a bicycle. According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, helmets reduce the risk of various head injuries by as much as 85 percent. Whether helmet laws apply in your area or not, Dr. Kyle Childers and our team at Childers Orthodontics want you to make sure you and your loved ones wear helmets with the appropriate safety ratings for specific activities. (A sticker on or inside the helmet will usually indicate this rating.) Helmets can also help save your teeth if they come with an attached faceguard, an essential addition for football players and others involved in contact sports.

Preventing Dental Injuries

A mouthguard can protect you against a variety of dental injuries, such as cracked, broken, or knocked-out teeth. The American Dental Association states that mouthguards play an essential role in preventing up to 200,000 dental injuries each year, and many states mandate their use for sports activities such as football and hockey. The Academy for Sports Dentistry warns, however, that these mouthguards must be custom-fitted as precisely as possible to prove effective. Have a professional-quality mouthguard molded and fitted by our team at Childers Orthodontics for better protection than a generic store-bought or “boil-and-bite” variety can offer. These cheaper versions tend to wear out quickly, interfere with proper breathing, and provide uneven degrees of cushion against impacts. Always have a fresh mouthguard fitted for each new sports season.

Choose the right combination of helmet, face guard, and mouthguard to protect your teeth and face this April, and tell your friends to do the same! To learn more about mouthguards, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kyle Childers, please give us a call at our convenient Benton, Harrisburg or Herrin, IL office!
