July is National Ice Cream Month! What’s your favorite flavor? At Noguchi Orthodontics, our favorite ice cream flavors include chocolate, peach, mint, and vanilla. When it comes to toppings, we will never turn down granola or strawberries. Yum!
In the 1300s, Marco Polo brought an early form of ice cream to Europe and in the 1700s ice cream was introduced to America as a delicacy, enjoyed by high society. It wasn’t until 1776 when America’s first-ever ice cream parlor opened its doors in the state of New York.
As of today, vanilla ice cream is the most popular ice cream flavor in the US while chocolate syrup is the world's most popular ice cream topping! Another interesting fact is that the world’s tallest ice cream cone was over 9 feet tall and was scooped in Italy. That’s a lot of ice cream!
If you’re looking for ice cream that may be a little bit better for you, we recommend all-natural organic brands. Or, if you want to choose to forego ice cream, we love eating fruits and berries during the summer.
Regardless of what summer treats you consume, it’s important that you stay on top of your oral health. We recommend rinsing your mouth with water after each meal in addition to brushing your teeth twice a day with good flossing.
For those looking to book a visit with us, give our office a call and we will get your next appointment on the books! This month we are offering an MI Paste treatment for removal of white spots on your teeth. Be sure to ask us about it when you come in for your visit!
Please note that our standard COVID-19 protocols are still in place. From all of us here at Noguchi Orthodontics, we thank you for your patience and cooperation. We hope you all have a safe and fun-filled summer!
