Everyone wants to look good for the summertime. Many people work on their appearance in the hotter months by catching a tan or engaging in outdoor activities, but the season is a great time to work on your smile too!

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that does the same job as conventional braces in less time, greater comfort, and without dietary restrictions, all while remaining virtually invisible. The process involves a sequence of aligner trays that are custom-fitted to your teeth. You wear each tray between meals for roughly two weeks before moving on to the next one. If you’d like to see your teeth straighter and less crowded, read on to find out why summer is an excellent time to begin Invisalign.

Summer Is a Flexible Time

People especially like to burn their vacation days during the summer so they can hit the road or just take a long weekend. Some of that spare time can go towards acclimating to the Invisalign process. Invisalign requires a visit to your provider every six weeks for an exam and a new round of aligners. With some vacation time to spare and no school to worry about, summer can give you the flexibility you need to get off to a great start.

Summer is also a great time to adjust. Invisalign, while more comfortable than metal braces, still applies pressure to move the teeth and roots to more aligned positions. If summer affords you a break from work or school, this can keep the initial stress of Invisalign from compounding with the stress of your usual work routine. If you take these months to get acclimated, you’ll be in the Invisalign groove and on your way when work and school are in full swing in the fall.

Invisalign Doesn’t Get in the Way of Your Summer Fun

Invisalign has no dietary restrictions. Do you see that corn-on-the-cob at the barbeque? Take the tray out and chomp away! Crunchy and chewy foods are of no concern because you take your aligners out when you eat. Make sure to clean your teeth and aligners before you put them back in, because getting food stuck between them can be bad news.

Since Invisalign is nearly invisible, you won’t have to worry about people noticing it when you get together with friends and family. Best of all, Invisalign usually takes only about one year to complete. Beginning Invisalign this summer means that next summer, you’ll have your new smile ready for its debut on the social scene.

With all the benefits of Invisalign, the summer is a great time to start your journey to a straighter, healthier smile. It can even help during the non-summer months, by giving you confidence and a better look in the professional world. Until then, summer is a great time to relax – and realign.
