Especially for children, summer offers a host of benefits for starting orthodontic treatment, making the entire process more convenient. Whether you choose braces or Invisalign®, summer is the perfect time to straighten your smile!

Summer Orthodontic Treatment for Kids

If your teenager or child needs orthodontic treatment, summer is the ideal time to start. Starting with braces or Invisalign Teen during the summer vacation allows your child to adjust to their new orthodontics without the pressure and schedule of the school year, making it much easier to get used to life with braces. It also makes it easier to maintain strong oral hygiene, which is so important during orthodontic treatment. Furthermore, starting treatment during the summer means you won't have to consider a busy schedule of classes and extracurricular activity when scheduling orthodontic check-up appointments.

Starting Adult Orthodontics During Summer

Even for adults, summer is a great time to start braces. You'll be embarking on the journey towards a new smile when the weather is at its most cheerful, and you'll have plenty of long days to schedule check-up appointments and get used to life with braces or Invisalign. Furthermore, because many adult orthodontic treatment courses last about 12-18 months, you can time your treatment to finish in the spring or summer of the following year—so you can show off your new smile in time for that summer!
