Summer is fast approaching and Miami students are all looking forward to fun in the sun and time away from class and homework. Here at Orthodontics Only, Dr. Derek Sanders highly recommends that students start an orthodontic treatment prior to summer vacation. Here are several of the many reasons to get braces before the summer begins:

Adjustment Period

Having braces definitely takes some getting used. If your child is going to summer camp, studying abroad, or going on a family vacation, it’s practical to start the process beforehand. Getting braces before participating in these enjoyable activities will reduce the chances of your child experiencing soreness or discomfort. In addition, you won’t have to worry about tracking down an unfamiliar orthodontist in an unfamiliar area in the event that an orthodontic issue arises.

New Smile for a New School Year

Many children come back to school in the fall with new clothes and haircuts. Wouldn’t it be great for your child to come back to school with a beautiful, healthy smile? By opting for braces before summer break, he or she will have enough time to drastically improve his or her smile in the summer months. An improved smile for a new school year leads
to more confidence which can set your child up for academic and social success.

Why Wait

Braces are intended to improve a variety of issues. Whether your child is suffering from crowded or crooked teeth, overbites or underbites, incorrect jaw position, or jaw disorders, braces can help. There is no reason to wait for summer vacation to start your child’s orthodontic treatment. The faster he or she begins braces, the faster he or she will develop a healthier mouth and attractive smile.
