Why You Should Try Invisalign® This Summer

posted in: Invisalign Dentist | 0

When you think Invisalign®, do you think about it in the context of summer? As an Invisalign® dentist we do. For us, summer is the perfect season to start correcting your crooked teeth, so that by this time next year, you will have a perfectly straight smile. Since it usually takes around a year to complete the treatment, what better time to start than during the season of fun. Summer truly is the fun season. It is the time of year when most families plan a vacation when you can find pool parties and barbecues in every neighborhood, and when families get together in the great outdoors. As the weather heats up, so too does people’s happiness. Replacing those dull gray and jackets with brightly colored swimwear, and exchanging the fireplace for a beach bonfire just seems to make people smile more. However, if you have malocclusion, also called crooked teeth, you may be one of the millions of Americans that is conscious about your teeth and shy to smile this summer. The good news is that we can help you start down the road to more confidence and a radiant smile. Come in and see us today and you could be wearing your new Invisalign® aligners by the end of summer. By Thanksgiving, you could already be seeing a noticeable difference in your smile, which you will be apt to use more.

Can Invisalign® truly help you enjoy the summer more?

If you are thinking about getting your teeth straightened you really have one of two options. First, you can go the traditional route and get metal braces. These do a great job, just like Invisalign®, but are clunky and give you a mouth full of metal. The second route is to wear clear aligners. With the traditional braces, you always have to worry about what you are eating. There are restrictions on everything. There are foods that are banned, foods that are restricted, and foods that you are encouraged to avoid. With aligners, you can basically eat anything. While there are some basic do’s and do not’s, Invisalign® gives you a lot more flexibility to enjoy all those neighborhood barbeques without having to constantly worry about getting something stuck in your braces, that you may open your jaw too wide and cause damage to them, or that something might unhinge your braces. With Invisalign®, you simply eat and enjoy the summer fare.

The question has been asked, what happens if you run into food that you really want to eat but are wearing an aligner? The answer is very simple. You take out the Invisalign® aligner for the duration of the meal. When you are done eating, simply clean your teeth to remove any food that may get trapped under the aligner, and replace it. Using Invisalign® is that simple. You should know that you need to keep the aligner in for 20 – 22 hours per day, so brief removals are fine, just remember to put it back in.

Since the aligners are clear, this is an excellent time to begin your Invisalign® treatment and to improve your smile.
