Sure Summer is a time for fun and games, late nights, adventures and no homework. But it’s also the perfect time to finally address something you’ve been meaning to do — like getting braces. In fact, in my years of orthodontics, I’d say summertime is one of the best times for teens and children to get their braces on.
Why? Well, some young folks have apprehension about getting braces on for the first time — Will it hurt? How will it look? What new habits will I have to adapt to? Between school, homework, sports and friends— do I even have the time to see an orthodontist? While almost all of my patients tell me that getting braces is much easier and less discomforting than they imagined, they seem to adjust even better outside of the pressures of the school year. By the time September rolls around, most kids and teens have gotten used to having braces, have solid hygiene habits established, and are far less self-conscious about their appearance.
I’ve also sweetened the deal this Summer for parents: Patients 18 and under will receive a $1,000 discount on a full set Invisalign or Damon braces if they have them installed by August 1, 2014. To take advantage of this offer, simply mention “Blog Discount” when you visit our office at any one of our four locations: Mill Basin, Brooklyn; Forest Hills or Rosedale, Queens; or Cedarhurst, Long Island.
Probably quicker, easier and more comfortable than you realize
The Damon System is generally considered the least irritating method of braces, featuring smooth and comfortable aligners. Patients feel less discomfort during the initial adjustment period as well. Invisalign, or “the invisible braces,” have been an increasingly popular option for people of all ages wishing to have straighter teeth and a more confident smile —and it is an especially ideal choice for teenagers.
Make an appointment for a consultation to find out more about each option.
We have locations in Mill Basin, Brooklyn; Forest Hills and Rosedale, Queens; and Cedarhurst, Long Island. Our goal is to help create even more beautiful smiles all over New York this Summer— but hurry. You have until August 1 for your $1,000 discount.
