Why Summer & Braces Are The Perfect Match

At Smile Power Orthodontics, we work with patients year-round to straighten their teeth with state-of-the-art treatment and create smiles that are perfect, healthy, and built to last a lifetime. While anytime is a great time to get your kids started on the path to their future smile, setting your kids up with braces during the summer can actually make the first few months of orthodontic treatment more comfortable for your kids and easier for you as a parent. Just check out the information below about the benefits of having your kids start their orthodontic care in the summer, and once you’re convinced, schedule an appointment with us!

No School Means Fewer Schedule Conflicts

During the school year, you have to help them get ready for school, drop them off in the morning, pick them up in the afternoon, all the while going to work yourself throughout the day. That’s a recipe for difficulty when it comes to scheduling an appointment time for your child’s visit to the orthodontist that works for both of your schedules, and that’s not even taking into account any extracurriculars that your kids may have. During the summer, you may still have work, but your kids will have more time on their hands than they know what to do with. Now all you have to worry about is finding a time that works for your schedule to schedule that office visit to start your kids with braces.

New Braces - At Home Vs. At School

For every new set of braces, there’s a period of adjustment that can last anywhere between a couple of days to a few weeks. During that time, your child will be in some minor discomfort, since they have this appliance that wasn’t there before, applying a small amount of pressure to their teeth to make them move. Instead of your kids having to deal with that discomfort while they’re trying to focus during their class at school, they can do all of that from the comfort of home during the summer. At the same time, summer vacation gives them plenty of time to get used to brushing and flossing with their braces or adjusting to their new dietary restrictions.
