Every October local orthodontist, Dr. Susan Lempert, urges parents and children to be mindful of certain Halloween treats that have the potential to damage orthodontic braces. Sticky, crunchy and chewy candy will break the braces off the teeth. Repairing the broken brace is time consuming for both the patient and the doctor and requires missed time from school and work.
Instead, choose softer options like melt-in-your mouth chocolates, peanut butter cups or thinly sliced apples with soft caramel dip. Remember to brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after these sweet treats!
Looking for a way to get rid of all that extra candy? Dr. Lempert proudly supports Operation Gratitude and is hosting a Halloween Candy Dropoff at her office. Candy will be boxed up and shipped to the troops. The last day for drop-off will be November 7th.
Dr. Lempert provides complimentary screenings for children in her Swedesboro office. You can visit her website at www.lempertsmile.com to learn more about her practice.
Dr. Lempert graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Human Biology. She received her Master of Science in Oral Biology Degree, Certificate in Orthodontics, and Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from Temple University School of Dentistry.

Only Children get Cavities – True or False?
False. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic “cavities and tooth decay are among the world’s most common health problems.” This includes adults at any age and ignoring the condition can lead to issues such as toothaches, infections, tooth loss and other non-dental conditions.
The good news – such decay is treatable and being cavity-free should be celebrated no matter if we are five years old for fifty. The Raines Dental “No Cavity Club” recognizes patients who successfully complete their treatment plan of three visits or more.
JOIN THE CLUB BECAUSE NOT ONLY KIDS SHOULD HAVE FUN!
Call Raines Dental at 856-343-4020 to schedule your appointment today.
