The Best Time to Start Orthodontic Treatment

The Best Time to Start Orthodontic Treatment
Posted on 08/15/2017

As your trusted orthodontic providers, we at Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists are here to help you achieve a straighter smile when you’re in search of a Dothan, Ozark, or Enterprise orthodontist. We pride ourselves not only on our efficient orthodontic treatments, such as braces and Invisalign Teen, but our orthodontic care and all-around helpfulness as well. We encourage you to ask us any questions that you may have so that we can make sure that your treatment is as convenient as possible. One of the questions we commonly get asked here at Wiregrass Orthodontic Specialists is about when the best time to begin orthodontic treatment is. While it may differ for some patients, we frequently recommend getting it started in the summer. There are a few reasons why we think that summer’s preferable and we’d like to share them with you.

There’s Appointment Flexibility

Many of our patients go on vacation or go out of town for parts of the summer or even the entire summer. Because of this, our practice often isn’t quite as hectic as it can be during other seasons. This will allow you to have a much better chance of being able to sign up for an appointment that fits perfectly into your schedule.

School’s Out for the Summer

If you’re a student (or if you’re scheduling a visit for a student), it can be difficult finding the time to make an appointment during the school year. Our Ozark, Dothan, and Enterprise offices schedule the majority of our appointments during school hours and it’s the same with most other children’s orthodontists as well. In these situations, a patient will typically have to skip class to make it to an appointment during the school year. However, by signing up for an appointment during the summer, you’ll have more free time so you won’t have to rearrange your schedule.

You’ll Have Time to Adjust

Tying into the last point, because a patient will have more availabilities to schedule an appointment, he or she will also have more free time to relax and adjust after orthodontic treatment. Undergoing orthodontic treatment – whether it’s braces, Invisalign, or Invisalign Teen – is a brand-new experience and it can take some time getting used to, which is why we recommend – if it’s possible – getting orthodontic treatment done when you have time to adjust to your new daily schedule. For example, if you get braces, you’ll have to make a concerted effort to avoid certain foods (hard foods and sticky foods) and it’ll take also take more time to keep your teeth clean.
