Benefits of Starting Braces in the Summer

July 15, 2020

Summer is the perfect time to think about your child’s orthodontic treatment. At Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics, we believe that summer is the best time to get braces. During the summer break, your child will not be in school, you will have less fees to pay for school and other activities, your child will have more time to adjust to braces, and, of course, they can enjoy frozen treats!

No School Means No Missed School

During the summer months, your child’s schedule will be more flexible because they are not in school. You can schedule an orthodontist appointment at any time without fear of your child missing school and having to make up class or homework. While school is in session, orthodontist appointments can be tough, this is the reality of a busy schedule. More often than not, children miss at least one or two classes. Let’s avoid taking your child out of school by scheduling their first consultation for braces or Invisalign this summer!

Less Fees To Pay

Whether you send your child to public or private school, there tends to be more school and sports related fees during the school year, rather than the summer months. This means your family can start on one of our easy, flexible payment plans, when you do not have to worry about all the expenses of the school year. Scheduling your finances for braces or Invisalign may make all the difference!

The Adjustment Period

Getting braces in Marlborough or Northborough is definitely an adjustment for kids and teens. Some kids experience pain or soreness, and their mouth needs to get used to a constant appliance in it. While at school, this adjustment period can be difficult. But summer break is the perfect time to hang out at home, watch movies, or go to the beach. It’s less distracting to have a little mouth pain at the beach than it is sitting in math class. Also, your child will have to change and learn some new eating habits to adhere to their new orthodontic treatment. It is easier to do this when they have a flexible schedule and are in the comfort of their home.

Ice Cream & Popsicles!

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a cold ice cream or popsicle, and these frozen treats feel amazing on a sore mouth with new braces. Obviously, Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics is not encouraging a diet of only ice cream, but once and a while it can really help! And, summer is the best occasion for it. The cold sensation really can ease some of the minor pain associated with braces or Invisalign!
