After a long winter . . . warmer temperatures, longer days and sprigs of green are sure to put a smile on your face! This year, make sure your SMILE is HEALTHY & HAPPY — and springtime is a great time to start treatment for children, teens and adults!
As the school year draws to an end, schedules start to loosen up and you find a little more time in the day, it's easier to schedule appointments. And, by the way . . . summer is known as the “busy season” in the orthodontic world, so getting a head start in spring is a great idea!
#2 KEEPING UP
Studies have shown that oral health tends to take to slip during the busy summer months. Scheduling braces before summertime will allow you to start and set a routine — so keeping up with the maintenance of braces may be a little easier.
Get-togethers, vacations, holidays and annual summer activities are just around the corner! Since getting used to braces can take a little time, scheduling them for spring will allow you to enjoy the summer season. It will also be easier to deal with initial discomfort, establish hygiene routines and get acclimated to brace-friendly foods.
