You may spend a lot of time trying to figure out the best time to select braces for yourself. You know that you want them. However, you worry that you should consider a less busy time in your life, that you should look for a time that will have you seeing fewer people (so you may hide out as much as you can during treatment), and more. With that said, our Temecula, CA team often poses the idea: Why not consider a perspective shift in which it’s always a good time for orthodontic care? That way, when you feel like you’re ready, you can simply get started. Think through some reasons this may work for you.

You Don’t Need To Hide Out

You may think that you should try to get started with braces over the summer if you’re a teacher, for instance, because it will mean that you’ll spend less time with people seeing you wearing braces. However, our team reminds you that things have changed! If you are extremely concerned about your appearance and its relation to your reputation, then consider wearing clear braces instead. Or, choose Invisalign treatment, which has you wear clear aligner trays instead of clear brackets and wires for an even more difficult-to-see way to align your smile.

It Takes Time No Matter What

You can put your plan for braces off. However, no matter what you do, it’s going to take up time. So, instead of trying to find a “convenient” time, you may instead wish to take the “the sooner I get started, the sooner my smile is straight” approach, as you recognize that just about any time is a good time for orthodontic care!

Care Remains The Same On Any Day

If you choose braces for yourself, you’ll still brush and floss (you’ll just need to do so around brackets and wires). If you choose Invisalign, you’ll brush and floss (you’ll just need to remove your trays and cleanse them, too). No matter the day you select, you’ll still be brushing and flossing (and you’ll still have the minor addition of a little extra effort for the orthodontic system). Today? Tomorrow? Start when you’re ready!
