Posted on 06/04/2018

Summertime and the livin’ is easy. School is out and long, lazy days melt into a lingering twilight. This season can be a beautiful, carefree time of year for many children and teens. However, did you know that summer is also a great time to start orthodontic treatment? If you, your child, or your teen needs an orthodontist in Enterprise, Dr. John P. Howell is ready to help with locations in Enterprise, Dothan, and Ozark. There are multiple benefits of beginning orthodontics during the months of summer.

Time to Become Accustomed

If your child or teen needs braces in Dothan, getting them during the summer can make the adjustment much more manageable for several reasons.

  • Braces can cause quite a lot of discomfort at first. Having to deal with busy school days and a painful mouth can be difficult for your child.
  • Brushing and flossing with braces requires different techniques that an orthodontist can teach. Relaxed summer days and evenings give children and teens a chance to learn good oral hygiene practices without other added pressures and distractions.
  • Braces look different. Getting them during the summer gives your child or teen a chance to adapt to these new appliances on their own.
  • It's easier on you! Having flexible hours for your child while their out of school allows you to schedule those first visits more easily, without sacrificing precious school time

Invisalign is another alternative to straighten teeth. As it is clear, many adults favor it over traditional braces. If you are interested in Invisalign in Ozark, contact Dr. John P. Howell at Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists LLC.

Easygoing Schedules

During the summer, children and teens are not pressured to be anywhere at a set time, so orthodontic appointments are easy to schedule and keep. Look for a practice that offers convenient hours to accommodate cherished family times and summer holidays while still offering patients the treatment they need.
