Summer provides many reasons to smile – longer days, more time at the beach, no school! We know that for all these reasons and more, we’re excited about summer and are sure that you are too. It also is a great time to consider braces for your child.
Braces might not be at the top of your child’s summer to-do list, but maybe they should be. While school is out, it is easier to schedule an appointment that works in your schedule. Without class schedules, athletics, and homework, there is likely more time available to schedule an appointment with your orthodontist.
The extra time off from school will also mean more time for your child to adjust to wearing braces. A visit to the orthodontist can mean a lot of changes – in appearance, favorite foods, and muscle soreness. With some extra time off, your child will have a little more time in their schedule to overcome any temporary obstacles or adjustments and feel more comfortable with their orthodontic treatment.
If you have been trying to find the perfect time to schedule a visit to the orthodontist for your child, this summer is a great opportunity. Get a head start on orthodontic treatment now and be on the way to a straighter smile by the end of summer!
