Extended summer?  Now is the Perfect Time for Braces! 

To say this summer has been "different" would be quite the understatement.  While most things have been interrupted, your journey to a gorgeous smile isn’t!  Summertime is an excellent time for braces.  Typically, schedules are more flexible and provide the perfect opportunity to adjust to new routines—like brushing and flossing in braces and learning how to eat with braces.  Teeth can move pretty quick; by the time your child returns to school they will have gained confidence in their new look!  So if you have a break from your typical “busy” routine, now is the perfect time to prioritize your child’s smile.

Wondering if your child is ready for braces?  The American Association of Orthodontics recommends all children be evaluated by an Orthodontist by age 7 to catch or prevent future problems.  (Bonus - our consultations are complimentary!)

When your child is ready for braces, we have several options for orthodontic treatment:

  • Traditional braces: Our durable, reliable bracket and wire system for straightening teeth
  • Clear braces: Just like traditional braces, but are made of a ceramic material instead of metal so they are less noticeable on the teeth
  • Invisalign clear aligners: A popular alternative to braces for straightening teeth that can be good for the image-conscious, high-contact athletes, or those playing musical instruments

We would love to see you and your child for a free consultation.  For added convenience, we offer virtual consultations as well as in-office exams.  

A new smile is one call away.  We can't wait to meet you and help you find your dream smile!
