How You Can Make Braces Fun

At Hi 5 Orthodontics, right in the heart of Spokane, WA, we merge the latest orthodontic techniques with a deep understanding of the impact of nutrition on dental health. This National Nutrition Month, we're spotlighting how a balanced diet is crucial not just for general health but for enhancing the effects of orthodontic treatments. Our dedication goes beyond creating beautiful smiles; we aim to educate our patients on making dietary choices that support their journey towards achieving the perfect smile

Nutritional Foundations for Orthodontic Health

We at Hi 5 Orthodontics believe in the power of nutrition to support the orthodontic journey. A diet rich in essential nutrients is pivotal for the development and maintenance of strong teeth and bones. Our team offers tailored nutritional advice, focusing on incorporating a variety of nutrient-dense foods that are beneficial for patients undergoing orthodontic treatments.

Adapting Your Diet for Orthodontic Success

Understanding how to adapt your diet during orthodontic treatment is key to ensuring the longevity and success of your treatment. We guide our patients through the process of choosing foods that are both nutritious and orthodontic-friendly. Our advice includes identifying foods that could potentially harm orthodontic appliances and offering delicious, safe alternatives to maintain a balanced diet.

Highlighting the Role of Hydration

The importance of hydration in the context of orthodontic health cannot be overstated. At Hi 5 Orthodontics, we emphasize the benefits of regular water intake for oral health, particularly for patients with orthodontic appliances. Hydration is essential for promoting saliva production, which helps in keeping the mouth clean and supporting the health of teeth and gums. We share practical tips for increasing water intake to support both orthodontic treatment and overall well-being.


Hi 5 Orthodontics, your Spokane orthodontist, is committed to a holistic approach in orthodontic care, recognizing the significant role of nutrition. By incorporating our nutritional guidance into your orthodontic journey, you're taking a critical step towards not only achieving your desired orthodontic outcomes but also enhancing your overall health.
