National Children’s Dental Health Month

     It’s that time of year again! February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! At Legler Orthodontics we truly enjoy raising awareness about the importance of good oral health, especially at a young age. For the past 21 years Dr. Legler has been visiting elementary schools all along the treasure coast and teaching children the importance of developing healthy habits at an early age.

     Your smile is one of your most valuable assets; therefore an early start to developing good oral health habits and scheduling regular dental visits will give children a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. We also want our patients to understand the importance of oral health while wearing braces. Poor oral hygiene can increase the length of time in braces and also significantly compromise the final results. Some of the risks involved when not keeping teeth and gums clean while in braces include, gum disease, cavities, tooth decay, and permanent white spots known as decalcification. Even though brushing and flossing requires extra time and effort while in braces, your beautiful “Legler Smile” at the end of treatment will be well worth it!

     The team at Legler Orthodontics is more than happy to help explain why effective brushing and flossing is one of the most critical aspects of your Orthodontic Treatment. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call! For a guide to brushing and flossing with braces, please visit our website at
