The summer months are a great time to begin you or your child’s orthodontic treatment journey!
It’s common for people to think that the fall months are a good time to start a new life endeavor, but when it comes to initiating you or your child’s orthodontic treatment, we actually think the summer months are an ideal time to begin.
Whether you’re interested in Line-M-Up™ or traditional braces, the JK Orthodontics team is here to help you get the ball rolling toward a beautiful smile that’ll last your entire lifetime.
Below are five reasons why the summertime is a great part of the year to begin your orthodontic treatment journey!
1. You’ll Dial-In Your Routine By The Time The School Year Begins
No matter which orthodontic treatment option you or your child decide upon, it’s going to take a little bit of time to get fully used to the swing of the orthodontic journey.
Summertime tends to be a little bit slower with less on people’s schedules, which will give you time to figure out how daily life might change with Line-M-Up™ or braces. But by the time fall rolls around, you’ll have your routine down pat for perfect oral hygiene and appliance-friendly eating routines.
2. Summer’s Cold Treats Can Help Soothe Your Initial Discomfort
Your teeth, gums and jaws are going to begin shifting into their proper positions during the first few weeks of your treatment, which means you’ll likely experience a little bit of discomfort as these changes first happen.
But cold, summertime treats like popsicles, ice cream and fruit smoothes can go a long way to soothe this type of oral discomfort for both braces and Line-M-Up™ patients.
Just be sure to avoid ice cream with hard mix-ins or nuts if you have braces to avoid any accidental damages!
3. Scheduling Your First Appointments Is Easier When You’re Not So Busy
A lot of families get extremely busy during the school year, and this can make getting to one of our offices a little more hectic.
That’s why starting orthodontic treatment during the less busy summer months is a great idea, because you’ll be able to come in for your initial consultation with Dr. Karpac and seamlessly set up your first couple of appointments without missing sports practices, school, or other types of lessons.
4. More Time To Gain Confidence Wearing Your Line-M-Up™ Aligners Or Braces
Braces have been popular for a long time and invisible aligners have also gained popularity throughout recent decades, so it’s safe to say that no one is going to be surprised by orthodontic appliances these days.
But with that said, there are plenty of orthodontic patients that appreciate a little bit of time to adjust themselves to their orthodontic appliances prior to going back to school in the fall and re-establishing all sorts of social demands.
Summer offers a good preparation period to help ease self-conscious teens into this type of transition, which can make the school year a lot more comfortable!
5. Faster Treatment Progress & Results
Getting Line-M-Up™ or braces treatment started in the summer months helps a lot of patients see significant results really quickly, and this has a lot to do with less scheduling constraints and more time to focus on remaining diligent with treatment plans.
This can include regularly switching out your aligners at the right time, as well as properly cleaning them. It can also pertain to using elastic bands correctly, too.
And when you combine your less hectic schedule with our state-of-the-art industry technology, you just might find out that a summer start can help you see more efficient progress and faster results!
