Happy New Year from Fine Orthodontics Bondi & Maroubra

Updated: Jul 9, 2023

What a year 2018 has been! We’ve welcomed many new patients and farewelled many too – along with their new lifelong smiles. After a busy and successful year, the team at Fine Orthodontics in Bondi and Maroubra are ready for summer events with family and friends, along with some time spent relaxing at home and abroad.

Orthodontic Care During the Holidays

Of course, the holidays are a time for guilt-free indulgence, but patients with braces and Invisalign® should take note:

  • Holiday sweets such as toffee and candy canes can wreak havoc on the wires used in braces. Braces wears should avoid hard or sticky foods to ensure their braces aren’t put at risk of breaking

  • One of the great benefits of clear aligners is that they can be taken out for a maximum of 2 hours per day to allow for eating and drinking. However, be wary to replace them once lunch is finished

  • Keep your aligner protective case close-by: wrapping aligners in napkins or serviettes can result in accidental loss or breakage

  • Keep up good dental hygiene over the holidays to avoid causing cavities, especially if you have braces where food can easily be caught under wires and near brackets.

Holiday Hours

The orthodontic clinic will be closed from Friday the 21st of December, and will re-open on Monday the 7th of January. Between the 7th and 14th of January reception will be open, with full services such as adjustments, new braces and aligner fitting resuming from the 15th of January.

During this time, if you need to contact us for emergency orthodontic issues, our Bondi and Maroubra patients can call 9369-3566. For non-emergencies, please contact us here and we will respond at first opportunity.

Happy New Year from Fine Orthodontics

The team at Fine Orthodontics in Bondi and Maroubra wish you a safe and happy holiday period, and of course a healthy and prosperous 2019. We look forward to seeing you again in the New Year!

If your New Year resolution involves a new smile, contact Fine Orthodontics to start your treatment journey in 2019.
