Spring Into a New Smile

Spring Into a New Smile


When people think of Spring, they think of renewal. For many parents, it's the perfect time of year to start their child on the path to a new smile. Beginning orthodontic treatment in the spring is a great way to start fresh.

This article will explore the benefits of starting orthodontic treatment at this time of year. Let's dive in!

5 Advantages of Starting in Spring

There are several advantages to starting orthodontic treatment in the spring. Here are five:

  • Renewal. New beginnings are synonymous with Spring. Just as nature rejuvenates, a new smile can renew your child's self-esteem and confidence. It's the perfect time to take the first step toward a healthier, more confident smile!
  • Milder Weather. Spring's milder weather helps kids adjust to their braces more quickly. Unlike winter's extreme cold or summer's intense heat, Spring's moderate temperatures make wearing braces more comfortable. As a result, kids often adapt to their braces more easily and feel less discomfort.
  • Positivity. Spring also brings lots of energy and optimism. Its fresh, vibrant surroundings help children feel more positive about their new orthodontics.
  • Summer Planning. Getting braces in the spring gives your child time to adjust before summer activities kick in. This important transition puts them in a better position to show off their new smile at summer events, like family gatherings, outdoor activities, and vacations.
  • Healthier Lifestyle. Spring often inspires healthier lifestyle choices. These choices include more physical activity and better eating habits. Starting orthodontic treatment during this time can align with these positive changes. It can encourage your child to develop good oral hygiene, an essential part of a successful orthodontic treatment.

Success Stories and Testimonials

Many families have successfully started their children's orthodontic journeys in the spring. For example, Lily came to us with a severe underbite and crooked jaw:

She told us that it was hard to bite and chew her food. Her teeth were also very crowded.

Eighteen months later, you can see Lily’s bite has improved tremendously and her asymmetric jaw has been corrected. We even were able to align her crowded teeth without removing any of her healthy ones. She is ecstatic with her new TenBrook Smile!

Lucas was another one of our young patients. His situation called for a Rapid Palatal Expander (RPE) and headgear. Check out his transformation:

Orthodontic professionals often recommend starting treatment in Spring. Dr. TenBrook, a Harvard-trained orthodontist, explains, "Spring is an excellent time to start treatment. The moderate weather and school break provide a comfortable and convenient window for children to adjust to their braces, setting them up for success."


Starting orthodontic treatment in the spring offers many benefits. From the symbolic fresh start to the practical scheduling advantages, spring is an ideal time to begin the journey towards a healthier, more confident smile.
