If summer flew by and you just didn’t get around to making that orthodontist appointment between vacations, sports and family parties — no worries! Here are three reasons why fall is a great time to start orthodontic treatment.
With the start of school, more structured schedules and maybe a little more time in the day, you may find it easier to make appointments. Plus, since summer is known as the “busy time” for us ortho folks, appointment slots open up in the fall.
#2: Keeping Up
Studies have shown that oral health tends to take a back seat during the summertime — especially with loose schedules and access to sugary summertime treats. Now that routines are back in place and time tends to be a little more managed, keeping up with the maintenance of braces may be a little easier.
#3: The Holiday Season
Halloween candy, Thanksgiving travels and Christmas vacation are all coming — soon! Since getting used to braces can take some time, scheduling them before the holidays will allow you to enjoy the season. It will also be easier to deal with initial discomfort, establish hygiene routines and get acclimated to brace-friendly foods.
