When kids daydream about summer vacation, they’re thinking beaches, barbecues, movies and amusement parks. The last thing kids are thinking about is braces. Surprisingly, summer is actually the best time for kids to start orthodontic treatments. Here are a few reasons why:
Flexible schedule for appointments
Frequent absences in school for orthodontic appointments can affect student academics. Include the complications of scheduling appointments around extracurricular activities and your own schedule and you are in a hectic situation. Orthodontic treatments will still continue into the school year even if you start during the summer, but it’s important to start the process on a positive note, when time is more convenient.
Adjustment period for braces
Getting braces for the first time isn’t fun and the hardware often requires an adjustment period. It’s much easier to deal with an achy mouth while watching a movie on the couch than in a classroom trying to perform complex mathematical equations.
Time to develop new routines for kid with braces
Cleaning teeth with braces often involves new equipment such as interdental brushes and slim-bristle toothbrushes and hectic school mornings are not the best time to learn these specialized techniques. It’s also not a great time to figure out which foods your child can and cannot eat with braces. Soft foods tend to be best, especially after soreness from the initial appointment and subsequent tightenings, and you’ll need time for trial and error if your child is a picky eater.
