Summer - The Perfect Time for Braces

Summer is here, and kids everywhere are joyfully looking forward to endless afternoons of freedom, friends, and fun in the sun. But summer isn't just a time for decompressing - summer is also one of the best times of the year to begin orthodontic treatment. For this blog, we'll look at a few of the reasons that make summer such an excellent time for braces.

New Smile in San Antonio

Every summer, thousands of kids all across the nation begin the journey to a brand new, healthy, beautiful smile. Summer is an ideal time for braces because of the flexibility it affords. Without the pull of school every day, it's easier for kids to adjust to their new braces - they can take time off to relax while they get used to their orthodontic appliances. Having a few months off also allows them to get used to the aesthetic appearance of braces before returning to school to see all their friends. 

Furthermore, summer means a break from over-scheduling during the school year. Just think how much easier it'll be to schedule orthodontic appointments without the time pressures of school, sports, clubs, or other extracurricular activities. Summer gives kids a break from the routine - and this makes it the ideal time to begin orthodontic treatment. 

Finally, there's never been a better time to start orthodontics. Braces are stronger, thinner, and more aesthetically appealing than ever, and with breakthroughs in appliance technology like Invisalign, kids have more options to choose from than ever!
