It’s that time of year again! The temperature is cooling off, fall sports are underway, and all the kids are headed back to school. At Garrett and Boyd Orthodontics we want to offer a few helpful tips for going back to school with #braces!

  • Bring a water bottle to school. Drinking water throughout the day helps to keep your mouth clean, fight #cavities, and prevent bad breath. Stick with water and you can’t go wrong.Read more on Orthodontic Tips for Back to School in Sugar Land and Rosenberg TX…
