Derby and surrounding area students, parents, and teachers are getting excited as we quickly approach the summer break!! Schedules will soon fill up with camps, sports, activities, and vacations. So many fun summer things to do, so little time!!

Summer can also be a great time to get started with braces or Invisalign. It's such a big, exciting milestone! Starting orthodontic treatment over the summer break provides many advantages to children, parents, and even teachers on summer break.

A few advantages to starting Braces or Invisalign over the summer:

  • Ease of scheduling - Free from the demands the busy school year brings, patients are able to get a jump start on their treatment during the lazy days of summer. Scheduling is much easier without a school schedule in the way. Having more appointments during the summer break will minimize the amount of appointments during work and school!
  • Time to adjust - Starting braces or Invisalign is a new commitment that will take some time getting used to, so patients will have plenty of time to adjust to life with braces or Invisalign trays before heading back to school. Oral hygiene takes more time. Summer is a great time to learn how to brush and floss the new orthodontic appliances properly without feeling rushed.
  • Frozen treats!! Summer means ice cream, frozen yogurt, and smoothies, which feel amazing to sore teeth after getting braces and after adjustments. Just don't forget to brush!!

We are scheduling summer appointments now, so don't wait to get your child scheduled and send them back to school in the fall feeling more confident in their smile! Need a consultation? No problem! We provide complimentary consultations and would love to meet with you to discuss your options.
