Summer is quickly approaching which is good news for kids and teens because that means summer break! Not only do teens and kids look forward to summer, but so do adults. Summer is usually a time for taking time off work to vacation or just enjoy the beautiful weather in Port Washington. If you are in need of orthodontic treatment or perhaps your teen needs to straighten their teeth, summer is the perfect time to start Invisalign treatment. See why you should make an appointment to get started with your Invisalign treatment.
School’s Out for Summer
The first reason why summer is the perfect time to start Invisalign treatment is that school is out for summer. If your teen needs the perfect time to get adjusted to a new routine, summer is the perfect time to start it. With not much to do but enjoy time off from school, getting used to wearing and taking care of Invisalign aligners is much easier to do when you don’t have much on your plate. If your teen starts their Invisalign treatment this summer, they will already be used to their Invisalign routine by the time school starts back up. This will make them more comfortable with cleaning their aligners after every meal which can be hard to get used to while you’re at school.
Traveling is Easy with Invisalign
If traveling is part of your plan for summer, Invisalign makes it easy to travel. Unlike metal braces which require a visit to the dentist every 4 to 6 weeks or more if you happen to experience a broken wire or bracket, Invisalign only requires a visit every 6 weeks to your dentist. If you happen to be traveling for longer than 6 weeks, talk to your dentist to see if they are comfortable letting you go longer without a visit to check on your progress. When you travel with Invisalign, you don’t have to worry about dental appointments, broken brackets or avoiding certain foods. Invisalign form our Port Washington dentist makes traveling much easier than it would be with traditional metal braces.
Your Summer Vacation Photos Will Still Look Great
One major concern of our patients who need orthodontics is that they don’t want to have an ugly mouth full of metal, especially in photos. Fortunately for you, Invisalign treatment is completely invisible! Your aligners are made of a clear plastic that is hardly noticeable to the naked eye. This means that all of your vacation photos will still feature your beautiful smile, without metal braces. You can look back at your vacation photos and remember all of the fun times you had, not how much you hated wearing braces in your photos.
Enjoy All of Your Favorite Summer Foods
Another perk of summer is all of the delicious foods like corn on the cob, popcorn, S’Mores and so much more. With traditional braces, you have to avoid foods like corn on the cob, apples, popcorn, hard chips, or sticky candies because they might break your brackets. With Invisalign treatment, you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods for the duration of your treatment. That means you can say yes to all of your favorite summer treats like grilled corn on the cob at the fair!
Get Used to Wearing Your Aligners Before Returning to Work or School
Incorporating a new routine when you have downtime makes it easier to do when your life is busy. Therefore, if you begin wearing your Invisalign aligners during summer when you have downtime from school or work, this will make your transition when you return to school or work much easier. You will already have the hygiene routine down and will be able to eat your meals and clean your aligners flawlessly at this point. If you don’t want to stress about adding something new into your routine when you’re busy, we highly recommend starting your Invisalign treatment during summer.
Your Smile Will Be Perfected Before Next Summer
One of the perks of Invisalign clear aligners is how fast they work. In just 6 months, your teeth will be so much different. Depending on how severe your dental problems are, you could have a perfect smile by next summer if you begin your treatment now. Think of how much weight will be off your shoulder to finally complete your orthodontic treatment. Once your treatment is over, you will be thankful you started your treatment sooner than later.
Invisalign Makes Dental Hygiene Easy
If you’re worried about your dental hygiene when you have orthodontic treatment, Invisalign makes it easy. With traditional braces, it’s difficult to brush and floss your teeth effectively because the wires and brackets get in the way. Not to mention, if you need to visit your dentist for a dental cleaning, you have to have your wire removed first which means you need to visit your orthodontist for the wire removal, then your dentist for the cleaning. Then you have to return back to your orthodontist to have the wire put back in. With Invisalign, you simply remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth as you usually would. If you need to visit the dentist, you simply pop them out again. Invisalign treatment will help you maintain a healthy smile throughout your entire treatment!
