Starting Orthodontic Treatment During the Summer

If you’re looking for Manhattan Invisalign or Riverdale braces orthodontic treatments, we at Goodman Orthodontics promise to do all we can to make sure that your treatment is as convenient as possible. It’s our goal to provide you with the committed, compassionate care that you deserve. As your trusted provider of Manhattan orthodontic treatments, we’d actually like to bring up one less talked about suggestion that will improve the convenience of your treatment – picking the right time to undergo treatment. Truthfully, we believe that starting orthodontic treatment during the summer is the best option for patients and we’d like to explain why we think so.

There’s Time to Schedule Appointments

School’s out for the summer, which means that there’s now more time to schedule an appointment – something that would be much harder to do during the school year. Plenty of orthodontic patients who get treatment during the school year have to end up skipping their classes just to find the time to schedule their needed orthodontic appointments. During the summer, that’s not a problem. There will be more free time to schedule consultations, initial treatments, and also follow-up visits.

There’s Time to Get Used to Your Orthodontics

When a patient begins orthodontic treatment, especially with braces, there’s going to be a period of time where he or she needs to get used to it. Unfortunately, this can be problematic if the treatment begins during a hectic time in a patient’s life. Getting our Manhattan orthodontic treatment done during the summer will alleviate some of that problem. Since school is out, summers can provide more free time for a patient to get acclimated to our Manhattan, NY braces or Invisalign treatments without getting overburdened.

Summer Growth Spurts Can Be an Ally

One of the major reasons as to why orthodontic treatment is most frequently performed on adolescents is because they’re still growing. Their changing facial features will allow a New York orthodontist to take advantage of that and craft a more efficient treatment. Performing orthodontic treatment during the summer can have an even bigger advantage because this is typically the time where teenagers hit their growth spurts. By starting this process during a patient’s maximum growth rate, we can optimize the efficiency of the treatment.
