Summer Is an Excellent Time to Visit the Dentist!

Posted by

Typically, when we think of summer we think of vacations, youth camps, and relaxation. But Summer is also a great time to visit the dentist and make sure your oral health is the best it can be! Here are a few reasons why:

Less Disruptive
Oral surgery procedures often come with a considerable amount of recovery time and it can be super difficult during the winter months to find a time frame that allows kids time away from their busy activities. Summer is a great time for college and high school students to get their wisdom teeth removed. It allows them time to recover without missing practices, games or classes so they don’t have to worry about falling behind.

During the summer our schedules tend to settle down a bit. Kids are out of school and that makes it much easier for parents to schedule appointments! And here at Capehart, you could easily schedule appointments for all your family to be seen in the same time frame, so you won’t have to come back for multiple visits to get everyone seen. T

Time to Adjust
The start of summer is also a great time to start Invisalign. This gives patients an opportunity to cope with physical and aesthetic changes. Many times, kids may need time to adjust to the feel of Invisalign to adjust their speech with the trays in. Summer gives them a chance to do that before being thrust back into a school environment.

More Benefits
Since most insurance plans come with caps, it’s important to take advantage of your benefits before the end of the year. And if your plan comes with a deductible, you will want to make sure you are able to reach this threshold as early as possible so you can maximize your benefits. Summer provides an excellent opportunity to do this. You won’t have to pay as much out of pocket for other dental work that you may need as you go into the holiday season and approach the end of the year.

A Brighter Smile
Summer is known for fun barbecues, weddings, vacations, and other social events! Engagements you want to bring your best, brightest smile to! We have different options for professional whitening treatments that can help make your smile stand out! Since some people require multiple treatments, it’s best to schedule a whitening consultation during the early part of the summer so you can get the smile you want in time for all your summer fun!
