Ideal Time to Get Braces

With the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons right around the corner, most of us will be getting ready to spend time with friends and families. This is the time of the year when get-togethers are being planned and people are thinking about how they’re going to spend their days off from school and work.

If you’ve been putting off getting orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child, we’d like to remind you that the holidays are the ideal time to get braces. This is the time of the year when kids are off from school and many adults also have extra days off. That means there’s plenty of time to fit in orthodontic appointments as it’s much easier to schedule an appointment when you don’t have to work around your or your child’s busy schedule. Plus, when you get braces put on your teeth during the holidays, you’ll have plenty of time to adjust to wearing braces.

It’s during this time of the year that kids and parents are quickly filling their calendars with things to do from attending holiday parties to planning shopping trips. Anyone who has ever worn braces knows that orthodontics takes some getting used to. That’s because the first few days and weeks with braces requires some adjustment. And, sometimes special appointments are needed. During the holidays when you’re off from school and work, there’s more time available to see your orthodontist.

If you’ve been thinking of improving your smile or your child’s smile by seeking orthodontic treatment, the holidays are indeed a great time to schedule that first appointment wit our Reno & Sparks NV orthodontics office.
