Spring is the perfect time to start your Invisalign orthodontic treatment — for children and adults! With warmer weather and longer days, staying active and motivated to take care of your oral health is easier.
A few reasons spring is the perfect time to start your Invisalign treatment include Graduation and Prom season! If you have an upcoming graduation, prom, or another special event, beginning Invisalign treatment now can help ensure you have a straighter, more beautiful smile in time for the big day.
The benefits of Invisalign include:
One of the biggest benefits of Invisalign orthodontics is that these clear aligners are virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious, as you might when wearing traditional metal braces. In addition, Invisalign aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic that is easy to wear.
Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly, making them more comfortable than traditional metal braces. Unlike metal brackets and wires that irritate your cheeks and gums, Invisalign aligners are created from a smooth plastic that won’t cause discomfort.
Another benefit of Invisalign orthodontics is that the aligners are removable. That’s right, you simply can take them out when you eat, brush, and floss, which means you can maintain good oral hygiene during your orthodontic treatment. This also means you don’t have to give up your favorite foods during this time as you would with braces.
Invisalign orthodontics can often produce results faster than traditional metal braces. Of course, treatment times can vary depending on your unique orthodontic needs, but many patients achieve their desired results in as little as 6-12 months.
