SAVAGE AND PRIOR LAKE, MINNESOTA – We know that lots of young patients at our Savage and  Prior Lake orthodontics office will be involved in sports this summer, so with that in mind, we’re taking the opportunity to remind parents and patients that a mouth guard is a must.

If your child has a mouth guard, bring it in and let us check it for a proper fit. If your child needs a mouth guard, we can make a custom one at our office.

Even for non-contact sports, they are a good idea, says Dr. Trudy Bonvino, a Savage and Prior Lake Invisalign provider. [More]

PRIOR LAKE, ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – The main goal of braces is to align teeth and promote better oral health, but we at the Prior Lake, MN orthodontics office of Cosmopolitan Orthodontics have learned some lessons through the years about braces’ other benefits.

Dr. Trudy Bonvino, a Prior Lake orthodontics expert who is the orthodontist on staff at Cosmopolitan, has seen braces come to the rescue of some of our patients- particularly those actively involved in sports.

Orthodontic appliances such as wires and brackets have helped prevent some of our patients from having their teeth knocked out on a few occasions. Even our Invisalign patients seem to derive some benefit from wearing their aligners in those odd instances when they’ve been hit in the mouth by a stray elbow or ball while involved in sports, says Dr. Bonvino, who also is a Prior Lake Invisalign provider.

That’s right- not only can good oral hygiene improve your overall orthodontic treatment experience, but it can even speed up treatment time, says Savage and Prior Lake Orthodontist Dr. Trudy Bonvino, an orthodontist at Cosmopolitan Orthodontics, a Savage, Lakeville and Prior Lake,  orthodontics office.
