Adults, Get Braces as the Kids Go Back to School


As your providers of Invisalign and braces for adults, we at Shults Orthodontics want to give all of our patients a comfortable and convenient orthodontic treatment that will lead to a straighter and healthier smile. When you’re getting orthodontic treatment, it’s important for you to consider when the most opportune time is to start. Truthfully, if you’re an adult, there’s actually an option that’s typically best. Whether you’re interested in adult braces or Invisalign, we recommend you consider getting your orthodontic treatment done after the kids go back to the school. Here are a few reasons why.

You’ll Have More Free Time

If you have children, getting braces after school’s back in is almost a no-brainer! During the summer, the kids will be around much more often and you won’t have as much free time. When they’re back in school though, they won’t just be busy with classes – they’ll be busy with school activities, sports, and homework, giving you plenty of extra time to schedule an appointment with your Wellington and West Palm Beach, FL orthodontist.

You Won’t Have to Schedule Around Vacations

Summer is typically the time of the year where vacations are planned. Rather than trying to schedule around a vacation – and also potentially trying to first get used to your braces while you’re supposed to be relaxing on a trip – you should wait until summer is over. As an added benefit, you won’t have to worry about scheduling around holidays either as there’s not many major holidays from the end of August to mid-November.

It’ll Be Easier to Schedule an Appointment

It likely won’t surprise you to know that a majority of the patients who get braces are children and teenagers. Because of this, orthodontic offices around the country are more packed than ever during the summer – the time of year where kids typically have their orthodontic treatments performed since they have the free time to schedule appointments. By waiting until after summer is over to come in, you’ll avoid the summer rush and have the benefit of getting more options to pick and choose when you want your appointment to be.
