When is the Best Time for Straightening Your Smile?

You may have been thinking about attaining a straight smile. Some people think about this for a while but put off getting orthodontic treatment for a variety of reasons.

Well, today, there is a discreet and fast way to get beautiful straight smile with Invisalign. But is there a right or wrong time to begin treatment? There are some helpful tips to guide your timeline.

Read on to learn more about this.

Should you or your child straighten your smile?

Invisalign can be a great solution for teens, young adults and older adults alike. It is discreet and offers a solution for better oral hygiene than traditional braces (since the trays can be removed, you can more easily brush your teeth).

Further, it can straighten away gaps and crowded teeth along with addressing both an underbite and overbite.

One of the most important considerations to take into account when thinking about Invisalign is the commitment.

Invisalign requires you to wear the clear aligners for 22 hours per day. So, the trays can be removed while eating but should be worn otherwise both day and night. If you cannot commit to this, Invisalign may not be right for you at this time.

Further, you’ll need to visit us every few weeks for new trays as teeth shift into place. As such, you will want to ensure your schedule allows for these visits.

If you feel you can accommodate these requirements, we invite you to learn more about Invisalign by scheduling an appointment.
