Have you ever experienced sensitive teeth when drinking hot coffee or eating ice cream? How about when brushing your teeth? Ever wonder why this happens? Most of the time it is due to enamel wear of teeth. When this happens, the dentin (sensitive part of the tooth) is exposed and left vulnerable to all kinds of painful experiences, depending upon how severe.
The orthodontic offices of Dr. Rebecca H. Hohl DDS MS would like to share with you a few fun facts about orthodontics offered by the American Association of Orthodontists ( AAO ) we think will be of interest.

Mother’s Day should probably be every day. But unfortunately it only comes around once a year. It is the day we all say thank you to Moms everywhere. Next weekend is Mother’s Day. Let us all do something special to thank all those Mothers who have been there to help us and see us through our problems.
History Of Mother’s Day
The origin of Mother’s Day goes back to the era of ancient Greek and Romans. But the roots of Mother’s Day history can also be traced in the United Kingdom where a “Mothering Sunday” was celebrated much before the festival saw the light of the day in the United States. However, the celebration of the festival as it is seen today is a recent phenomenon and not even a hundred years old. Thanks to the hard work of the pioneering women of their times, today the celebration of Mother’s Day spans 46 countries (though on different dates) and is a hugely popular affair.Read more on Happy Mother’s Day To Moms Everywhere…
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that parents understand the early warning signs of an orthodontic problem and recommends kids be evaluated by an orthodontist by age 7 – 8. Early evaluation provides both timely detection of problems and a greater opportunity for more effective treatment. Well timed intervention guides growth and development, preventing serious problems later. When orthodontic intervention is not necessary, an orthodontist can carefully monitor growth and development and begin treatment when it is ideal.
