Getting braces can be a bit nerve wracking initially, but the results are undoubtedly worth it! If you’re considering braces for yourself or your child, you may be wondering when the best time to start the treatment is. Look no further than summer! Our Walt Orthodontics team is here to share why summer is the ideal season to embark on the journey of orthodontic treatment.
One of the key benefits of getting braces during summer is that there are no school-related concerns. Your child can enjoy the freedom of summer break without worrying about missing classes for orthodontic appointments. Plus, you won’t have to juggle scheduling appointments around their school timetable. It’s a win-win situation for both parents and children.
At Walt Orthodontics we also offer virtual appointments. If you are traveling over summer and need to check-in with us, you can do so virtually too!
Braces can require a period of adjustment, and summer provides the perfect opportunity for this. With more personal time available, you or your child can become familiar with the braces upkeep routine, including how to brush and floss, wax application, rubber band placement, and dietary adjustments. The relaxed summer schedule allows for a smoother transition into the braces journey.
At Walt Orthodontics, our team is here to help with any adjustments and questions. We’ll prepare you with all the tips and tricks to make your journey as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
Who can resist indulging in some summer treats, like ice cream? The good news is that soft-serve ice cream is braces-friendly. Whether you’re an adult or a child, you can still enjoy this cool delight (in moderation) without worrying about damaging your braces. So, beat the heat and savor the joys of summer with some delicious ice cream.
Other delicious summer snacks that are braces-safe include frozen yogurt, watermelon and other fresh fruits (cut up into pieces), and smoothies. Looking for more ideas? Just ask the Walt Orthodontics team!
