To date, more than 12 million patients have chosen to straighten their teeth with Invisalign. Between the see-through aligners and the fact that you can remove them at any time, you might even be considering this orthodontic treatment for yourself. If that’s the case, then you’ll be happy to know that summer is a great time to start Invisalign. Here’s why!
1. You Can Be Done with Clear Aligner Treatment by Next Summer
On average, patients wear traditional braces for 1-3 years. Invisalign, on the other hand, typically delivers results in just 12-18 months. That means that if you start the treatment process now, there’s a good chance that you’ll have your dream smile by this time next year!
2. You Can Use the Long Weekends to Your Advantage
Summer starts with Memorial Day and ends with Labor Day. Plus, with the 4th of July weekend in the middle, there are quite a few long weekends during the summer months. If you start Invisalign now, you can use that extra time to your advantage, like relaxing a bit as you adjust to life with clear aligners.
3. You Can Straighten Your Teeth from Anywhere
No matter what your summer plans include – whether it’s planning a staycation, traveling abroad, or working – your Invisalign treatment won’t get in your way. That’s because the clear aligners are relatively hassle-free since you don’t need to adopt any complicated oral hygiene regimens or dietary restrictions. Furthermore, there are fewer check-in visits, which frees up your schedule as well!
4. You Can Still Eat All of Your Favorite Foods
Raw nuts, whole apples, and popcorn are just a few foods you can’t eat with traditional braces. Fortunately, the same can’t be said for Invisalign. All you have to do is take your aligners out before your meal. Then, you can indulge in all of your summer favorites – from corn on the cob to fresh fruits and chips and salsa!
Since Invisalign is discreet, hassle-free, and allows you to straighten your teeth from anywhere, now is the perfect time to schedule your consultation. Once your appointment is on the calendar, you’ll be another step closer to the smile you’ve always wanted!
