Leukemia Awareness

September is Leukemia Awareness Month

Dr. Lauren Olson and the Olson Orthodontics team want to show our support for Leukemia Awareness by encouraging our patients to smile in ORANGE during September!

Olson Orthodontics Supports Leukemia Awareness

Therefore, Dr. Olson will make a donation to the Hope House on behalf of the Olson Orthodontics family in honor of Sara Simpson. To calculate the total donation, we will note each patient that chooses ORANGE bands. To show your support, take a selfie of your ORANGE smile or ORANGE bracelet and tag us in your post @OlsonBraces. You can also post the photo to our Facebook page!

Leukemia, which accounts for about 30% of childhood cancers, affects far too many families. We are hopeful for a cure and are honored to participate in the fight. Patients can also leave a donation in office at their appointment.

2019 Platinum+ Invisalign® Provider

What does Platinum+ mean?

Dr. Lauren Olson is proud to be a Platinum+ Invisalign® Provider for 2019! An orthodontist's provider level is determined by their overall experience and the relative number of patients they have treated with Invisalign®. The levels range from VIP to bronze and doctors with the "plus" status have more experience with a given level.

What are Invisalign® clear aligners?

Patients who are in Invisalign® treatment have opted for their teeth to be straightened by a series of clear aligners. Each set of clear aligners gradually move teeth to the location that an orthodontic specialist, like Dr. Lauren Olson, have planned for. If you are a candidate for the aligners, Dr. Olson will create you a custom treatment plan using 3D computer imaging technology. Then, Invisalign® creates those aligners based on Dr. Olson's plan. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately one week before you move to the next set until your teeth are in the desired positions.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign®?

The only way to tell if you are an Invisalign® candidate is to have a consultation with Dr. Lauren Olson. Our consultations are complimentary and we also offer Invisalign® Teen, so age is not a factor. However, there are cases where this treatment is not the best recommendation and Dr. Olson can suggest an alternate treatment plan.

Call today or submit an online appointment request to schedule your complimentary exam! We look forward to seeing you!

Dr. Lauren Olson: In the News with Carrollton Bank

Have you seen Dr. Olson on the Carrollton Bank commercial?

Dr. Lauren has been recently featured in one of Carrollton Bank's commercials. It was a unique experience in that during filming of the commercial, she and Laura just sat at a table and talked for 30 minutes. It was not scripted or had any per-set guidelines other than to just sit there and talk!

Dr. Lauren Olson has been with Carrollton Bank for over seven years and she has served on the Advisory Board for the O'Fallon Branch for the last three years. She still attends the board meetings as an alumni member. Dr. Lauren loves her relationship with the bank, and the personal service that her banker, Laura Beckman, provides has been terrific!

To Dr. Lauren, Carrollton Bank feels much like her own business. It is based off one on one interactions, a family friendly atmosphere where you are known and respected, and most of all friendly employees that are ready to serve and make your experience a great one!

Haven't seen the commercial yet and want to watch it?

Retainers

What should I do if I lost or broke my retainer?

Retainers are required after orthodontic treatment to help keep your teeth from moving back to their original positions. So you must wear your retainer every day!

To keep your retainer in good shape, avoid:

  • Using a toothpick to clean out food caught in the retainer.
  • Biting into hard foods like apples, carrots, and candy.
  • Biting on finger nails, which flexes the teeth.
  • Chewing ice.
  • Pulling too hard on the retainer when flossing.
  • Grinding or clenching your teeth.

Always store your retainer in its case when it’s not in your mouth. If you lose or break your retainer, contact our office immediately for a replacement. Note that we do charge a fee for a new retainer.
