Less Scheduled Activities & Events

Starting Braces Treatment in Summer

More often than not, the summertime is easier to schedule appointments because you have fewer commitments, especially for kids and teens. School is out which means your children will not have to miss class or sports practice because of an orthodontist appointment. This is also the case for adult treatment - you have more time to fit in your initial braces consultation.

The Adjustment Period

As with anything new, there is an adjustment period - this goes for braces and Invisalign. When you first get your braces put on or start using your Invisalign clear aligners, you will experience some minor soreness and pain in your teeth and mouth. It is much easier to deal with this adjustment period in the summer months when you are at the beach or at home. Braces can be much more distracting while sitting in math class or an important work meeting.

Cold Treats Help

Normally, when we think of summer, we think of ice cream, fresh-cut watermelon, popsicles, and other summer treats. These can help make your orthodontic adjustment easier. Cold and frozen foods can help ease and soothe the minor discomfort of braces and Invisalign. Another reason why summer is the best time for orthodontics in New Baltimore!
