Thank you, spinach for ALWAYS getting stuck in my braces when I’m about to talk to someone important!

Here’s some fun facts about Spinach you may not know about:

1. The plant originated in Iran, and wasn’t brought to the USA until the year 1806.
2. Spinach quickly loses its nutritionally value. By the 8th day after being harvested it has lost 50% of its original nutritional value.
3. The U.S. is the second largest producer of Spinach.

Thank you, expanders; or as parents call you, a broken record of slurping noises!

So what exactly is a palatal Expander? It’s a very common orthodontic appliance that is often used in young children. It’s a way to perform Arch expansion which is a common way to get rid of crossbites and crowding in children that are still growing. Use of this expander requires that the growth plate in the roof of the mouth is not yet fused, which commonly occurs between 13 and 16 years old.
