In our years of offering braces in Overland Park and Olathe, weâ€™ve seen our fair share of cut lips and broken hardware thanks to patients getting hit in the face with a ball or an elbow during a game when they werenâ€™t wearing a mouthguard. Yet, itâ€™s not just kids with braces who need to protect their teeth when playing sports. While braces certainly add to the risk of injury, even children (and adults!) wearing Invisalign, retainers, or nothing at all should be taking precautions. Avoiding tooth and mouth injuries in children while playing sports can be as simple as using protective gear like a mouthguard.

In 2016 – 2017, Dr. Moon had the pleasure of being the President of theÂ Kansas Association of Orthodontists. As the president, one of his duties was to organize theÂ Kansas Association of Orthodontists annual meeting which recently took place at the Boulevard Brewing Company. The event this year was one of the largest as it was joined by theÂ Missouri Society of Orthodontists.

A gummy smile, known as excessive gingival display in doctor speak, is when you smile and too much gum tissue shows above the top teeth. Patients who visit Moon Orthodontics concerned about a gummy smile often say it makes them feel self-conscious or that their smile seems less attractive. Well, we have good news. A gummy smile can be fixed. Though the type of treatment will depend on whatâ€™s causing the excessive gingival display, once we figure out the source, we can work on creating a gorgeous, healthy grin. Read More
