The warmer weather is ideal for having BBQs with family, going to the beach with friends, and checking off things on your bucket list, like traveling to a different country. But did you know that summer is the best time to start Invisalign as well? That means that there’s truly no time like the present to start your clear aligner treatment if you’re struggling with spaced-out, overlapped, or otherwise misaligned teeth. If you’re interested in learning more, here are a few benefits to starting Invisalign now!
1. You Won’t Have to Miss Any of Your Favorite Summer Foods
Let’s be honest: indulging in seasonal favorites is one of the best parts of summer! Whether you love getting a deep-fried Oreo at a local fair, eating your family’s famous corn-on-the-cob, or indulging in s’mores by the campfire, you don’t have to worry – Invisalign doesn’t come with any dietary restrictions. As long as you take your aligners out beforehand and brush your teeth afterward, you can eat whatever you’d like throughout your clear aligner treatment.
2. You Can Straighten Your Teeth from Anywhere
For some patients, catching up on some much-needed R&R is the best way to spend the warmer months. For others, it’s the ideal time to travel around the world. If you’re part of the latter group, good news: you can straighten your teeth from anywhere with Invisalign! Just make sure to take a few proactive measures before your trip, like packing all of your oral hygiene essentials and any additional aligners you need to stay on-track with your treatment plan.
3. You Can Confidently Smile Throughout All Your Summer Plans
Since Invisalign uses clear aligners, not metal brackets and wires, to straighten your teeth, even your closest friends and family members won’t be able to tell when you are and aren’t wearing them. That also means that any selfies or pictures you take won’t draw unwanted attention to your orthodontic treatment. When you look back on those photos years from now, you’ll see a beautiful smile, not a mouthful of metal.
4. You Can Use the Long Weekends to Relax
Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day are three long weekends that occur over the course of the summer. If you start your Invisalign treatment now, you can use that downtime to adjust to life with clear aligners. After all, things like putting your aligners on and meeting the 20-22 hour-a-day wear time take some getting used to.
