Gardening used to be for survival, to provide food for the table. Today, we have ornamental gardening where the look of the garden is more important than the products coming out of it. Since the look is so important, we don’t want pests eating holes in leaves and rotten produce lying on the ground. A healthy-looking garden is a healthy and disease-free garden.

Soil condition is very important for the growing of produce as well as for pest control. Roots need access to water and air. The soil should store nutrients for the roots so that plants are healthy and can repel attacks by garden pests. Too extreme of conditions in the soil will be ideal for the infestation of crawling pests. Work the soil to create a fertile loam for good drainage and storage of nutrients. To achieve this you need to work the compost in during the fall and spring. Use mulch on top to allow for less evaporation of water and to allow the nutrients to work farther down. Too much organic material left on the surface will create a pest control situation by attracting pests.

Compost is a good soil conditioner because it has already been broken down and started rotting. Therefore, it is less likely to attract pests to the garden. Bury hair around plant roots or in a trench around the plant. Pests do not like to crawl over the hair and it is rich in minerals and micronutrients. The fat from roasting meat or poultry can be buried at least a foot deep in the soil and will deter vermin.

Container gardening allows you to keep some plants out of the garden and on the porch or in your house. These will be less susceptible to regular garden pests.

Some weeds should be left in the garden to keep the soil loose. Clover and wild mustard add nitrogen and minerals to the soil while suppressing other weeds. They bring the minerals up to the surface and also help clear some pests.

No garden is completely pest or disease-free. However, you can minimize pests by using these conditions to keep your garden in harmony and from attack.

Taking Care of Your Retainers

When we remove your braces, your retention stage of treatment begins. Generally, patients receive clear, esthetic retainers. For certain individuals the doctor will prescribe Hawley retainers that are made of acrylic and wires. The first six months of retention are the most critical for the teeth are becoming stable to their new position in the arch. If retainers are not worn faithfully, the teeth may relapse to their former misaligned position. After the first six months of faithful retainer wear, the doctor will prescribe that you continue wearing the retainers at night to prevent any unwanted movement due to pressure exerted on the teeth by the erupting wisdom teeth or third molars. orthodontics
Once the wisdom teeth have been removed, the doctor will usually tell you to wear your retainer one night a week and FOREVER! The doctor wants to preserve your beautiful smile and healthy bite for the rest of your life. He knows that bad habits may develop at a point in your life and that these habits may cause abnormal wear and movement of your teeth. Only faithful long term retainer wear will aid in detecting the onset of a bad habit. Bad oral habits include grinding or clenching your teeth, biting on objects like pens and pencils, etc. If you notice a “tight fit” when putting on your retainers that one designated night per week, it is usually due to some bad oral habit. If this happens, the doctor strongly recommends that you wear your retainers full time until the habit ceases.

With this information, the doctor warns that you cannot go without retainers. If lost or broken or if you have concerns regarding fit, make an appointment ASAP to preserve your beautiful smile and healthy bite that you worked so hard to achieve!!!


It must be worn 24 HOURS A DAY, except when you are eating and brushing your teeth. If you play contact sports (football, basketball, etc.) take it out for the game, but don’t forget to put it back in! We will reduce the time you are required to wear your retainer over time.


When you are not wearing your retainer, place it in a glass of warm, not hot, water with denture cleaner. This prevents plaque from sticking to your retainer. DO NOT use hot water to clean or soak your retainer, as it may cause warping.


This protects it from being stepped on, thrown away, lost, etc. Do not wrap the retainer in a napkin, for this is a very easy way for it to be thrown away. Make sure you write your name and phone number on your retainer case along with the doctor’s name. This will increase the chances of your retainer being returned to you if you lose it.


Pets love to chew retainers. Make sure when it is not in your mouth it is in it’s case up on a counter or shelf where your pet can not reach it.


If your retainer is lost or broken there will be a replacement charge. DO NOT WAIT TO CALL. Your teeth can move very quickly. If you have questions or problems, please call and we will be glad to help you.
