Invisalign is the preferred choice among teens and adults because no brackets or wires are used. If you’ve been waiting for a perfect opportunity to straighten your teeth, here are 5 reasons to get started with Invisalign this summer.

1. It’s Never Too Late for a Straight Smile

There is no age limit for orthodontics. 1 in 5 orthodontic patients is over the age of 18, thanks to less noticeable treatments, like Invisalign. Invisalign is a great choice for adults because it’s nearly invisible. It also requires fewer appointments because you won’t need adjustments, which can accommodate your busy schedule.

2. More Flexibility in Your Schedule

It can take a few visits to get started with Invisalign. If you’ve been saving your vacation days, you’ll have the time you need for your consultation, preparatory treatments, and any other appointments. You will also have the time to adjust to wearing your aligners before you have to run back to the office.

3. Won’t Compromise Your Appearance

You don’t have to worry about brackets or wires blemishing your smile. Invisalign involves clear aligners worn over your teeth. They are very difficult to detect to maintain your professional image. 

With the correct care, your aligners will stay transparent, so nobody will know you are wearing them. Whether you’re taking a vacation, have upcoming events, or have a business opportunity, Invisalign won’t compromise your appearance.

4. No Dietary Restrictions

You don’t have to miss out on summer barbecues or seasonal favorites, like corn on the cob. You won’t have any dietary restrictions when wearing Invisalign because the aligners are removable. 

Never have anything except water while wearing your aligners. Place them in their storage case when you’re not wearing them. Don’t forget to brush and floss before putting them back into your mouth.

5. Healthier Teeth and Gums

Bite and alignment issues are more than aesthetic problems. They can also increase your risk of preventable issues, like tooth decay, gum disease, and dental emergencies. 

Fixing your alignment and bite will reduce your risk of common oral health concerns to keep your mouth healthy. Not only will you preserve your natural smile, but you’ll lessen the need for costly procedures later to save money down the road. 

Don’t let another summer go by feeling embarrassed by gapped, rotated, or crooked teeth. Make this summer one to remember by investing in a beautiful smile with Invisalign.
