Should You Get Braces Before School?
08/15/2017
Many teens are facing the possibility of getting braces as summer comes to a close. Give your teen an extra couple weeks to adjust to the braces before sending them back to school. There's also the learning curve that comes with braces, such as getting used to eating with them on and learning appropriate cleaning techniques. Becoming familiar with these aspects at home and under your guidance is a lot easier on teens who are often a bit wary of the treatment. They'll be able to experiment with soft foods and slowly ready themselves for harder foods. By the time their school is back in session, your child will see their braces as more of a natural extension of themselves and less of a hindrance. Fortunately for them, braces aren’t what they used to be. They now come in a variety of colors for customization and your child can even rock their school colors on the first day back!
