Summer & Braces: A Match Made In Heaven

Summer & Braces: A Match Made In Heaven
Posted on 05/14/2018

Summer is just around the corner, and we know kids everywhere are getting excited for longer days, warmer weather, and – of course – no school! But in addition to much-needed outdoor activities, summer is also the perfect time for another important part of growing up: braces. At Martinez Orthodontics, we're proud to provide kids and teenagers throughout the Cincinnati area quality orthodontic treatment, and we've seen firsthand that summer is the best time for braces.

Why Summer Is the Best Time for Braces

It may seem counterintuitive, but there's no better time for braces than the beginning of summer vacation. Why? There's a whole host of reasons!

For one, it allows kids to adjust to braces without the social and academic pressure of school. During the school year, life can get busy, which makes it harder to go through the first week or so of braces, when the patient is still getting used to things. Starting during the summer allows your child to spend their initial adjustment period at home, making it easier to take care of them and focus on adjusting to life with braces.

Furthermore, some children feel a little embarrassed at the thought of getting braces – or at least, they do at first. Starting braces during summer allows your child to acclimate themselves to having braces without the social pressures of school. And once they get used to braces, most children feel happy to return to school life with their new braces.

Finally, summer vacation affords much more flexibility in scheduling. During the school year, it can be exceedingly hard to find time for orthodontic appointments between schoolwork, sports, and other extracurricular activities. When starting in the summer, it's easier to schedule children's appointments to work with your schedule – which is a blessing during the early stages of treatment.
