Summer – The Perfect Time to Get Braces

At Tooth Wranglers, we love nothing more than seeing our patients start down the path towards a beautiful, healthy smile. It warms our hearts to help our patients improve their oral health, aesthetic appearance, and overall confidence with a brand new smile, and nothing makes us happier than the look on our patients’ faces when they get their braces off for the “big reveal.” That’s why summer is one of our favorite seasons – it’s the ideal time for starting orthodontic treatment!

Starting Orthodontic Treatment in Albuquerque

There are a number of things that make summer a great time for beginning treatment, but one of the biggest ones is scheduling. We know how busy our patients are – sometimes, it seems like kids are just as busy as professionally working parents! We recognize that between classes, sports, music, theater, groups, clubs, friends, extra-curricular activities, and all of the complexities of a modern adult life, fitting in time for orthodontic activities can be difficult. But with classes cancelled for summer, it’s much easier for many of our patients to make the time to come in. This will let us get all of the legwork done while you have an open schedule, making things easier as we transition into the busy school year.

It’s not just scheduling that’s easier, though. The openness of summer allows patients more time to get used to their new braces before returning to school to see their friends in the fall. Occasionally, patients will have a slight lisp as they get accustomed to speaking with braces – this goes away within a few days, but during summer they won’t have to worry about raising their hand in class. Starting their braces in the off season will let your child get accustomed to the look and feel of their new smile, making them much more confident about wearing them at school. They’ll see that braces really aren’t bad after all!
