Whether wearing standard braces or clear aligners, orthodontic treatment will take a little getting used to, and that’s especially true for younger patients. 

That’s why so many parents bring their kids to see us for their first orthodontic appointment during the summer. Having a little time off of school gives older kids and teens a chance to adjust to wearing braces or aligners, how to care for their teeth throughout their treatment, and any other changes to their lifestyle or appearance.

If it turns out your child is a good candidate for clear aligners, getting started now could even have them finishing their treatment in time for the next school year so they can show off a straight, confident smile even sooner!
