If your Summer Buck List included a call to the orthodontist, but family parties, vacations and sports pushed it to the bottom of the list — no worries! We’ve got four reasons why fall is a great time to start orthodontic treatment.

#1: Schedules
Now that school is back in session, a little more time during the day and structured schedules may make it easier to call for a first appointment. Plus, summer is known as the “busy time” for us orthodontic­ folks, so now that fall is here, appointment slots tend to open up.

#2: Keeping Up with Oral Health
Studies have shown that oral health can take a back seat during the summertime — especially with access to sugary summertime treats and busy schedules. With routines back in place, transitioning to braces and keeping up with the maintenance may be a little easier.

#3: Virtual Visit
A physical visit to our office isn’t your only option!  With our Virtual Consultation option, you can start treatment from the comfort of your home — on your time and your schedule! With a couple of clicks and a few minutes, you can give our doctors everything they need to provide you with treatment options. Visit greatbraces.com to schedule!

#4: The Holiday Season
Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner — along with candy, parties and travels! Getting used to braces can take some time, so scheduling them before the holidays start will allow them to be more enjoyable. It will also be easier to deal with initial discomfort, establish hygiene routines and get acclimated to brace-friendly foods.
