Profile Orthodontics Wish You a Happy Holiday Season
With Christmas and New Year just around the corner, the team at Profile Orthodontics in Claremont and Joondalup would like to take the opportunity to wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
After a successful year perfecting smiles, we are looking forward to some quality time with family and friends, indulging in festive events and welcoming the New Year.
While we are enjoying some R&R, it’s important you stay on top of your treatment. Our orthodontists, Dr Chris & Dr Shiva, have this holiday advice for patients of braces, Invisalign aligners and SureClear aligners:
Holiday Advice for Orthodontic Patients
- If you are wearing braces, try to avoid particularly hard or chewy foods like candy canes and toffee. These kinds of sweet indulgences are prone to breaking wires, therefore delaying treatment time
- If you are currently undergoing treatment with Invisalign, though it may be tempting to leave your aligner trays out for longer than 2 hours per day. And make sure to use your protective case when eating or drinking
- If you are travelling, take both your previous and next set of Invisalign clear aligners with you, in-case you misplace your current series. Use our app to obtain advice on whether to move forward or back a set.
The Profile Orthodontics clinics in both Claremont and Joondalup will be closed for the holiday period, from 12pm on Friday the 21st of December, re-opening Monday the 7th of January.
During this time, we have an emergency only service available. For further info patients can call the practice to hear our message. The service is for Profile Orthodontics patients experiencing an emergency or severe pain only. Patients can also use the MyProfile app to communicate any issues with a hygienist.
From the entire team at Profile Orthodontics, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a joyful New Year. See you in 2019!
