Halloween 2014We have all heard about the damage that sugar and certain “sticky” candies can do to teeth. Well, our Team at OrthoPros in Tucson wants to remind all of our patients and future patients about the dangers one more time. We know #Halloween is supposed to be a fun time of year for kids of all ages… but it can turn into a “nightmare” of damaged teeth for kids and parents if the wrong types of treats are consumed.

Here at OrthoPros Orthodontics we love #Halloween but we also have a responsibility to increase the awareness regarding the potential damage certain candies can cause if patients are not careful about which treats to eat. Read more on Halloween “Treats” May Really be “Tricks”…

The American Heart Association Speaks Out on e-Cigarettes

The American Heart Association recently released its policy recommendations on the use of “e-cigarettes” and the need for the same regulation as tobacco products. Nancy Brown, CEO of the American Heart Association recently stated: “Over the last 50 years, 20 million Americans died because of #tobacco. We are fiercely committed to preventing the #tobacco industry from #addicting another generation of #smokers. Recent studies raise concerns that e-cigarettes may be a gateway to traditional tobacco products for the nation’s youth, and could renormalize smoking in our society.
