If you have been considering straightening your teeth, you may be familiar with Invisalign Clear Aligners. This treatment work to create a healthy, straight smile over a period of time by using discreet, removable aligners that are changed out regularly as teeth shift.
However, there are some considerations when it comes to the right timing for undergoing an Invisalign treatment. Keep reading to learn more about this.
Is now the best time for you?
Choosing the right time of year to begin Invisalign is something that should be well thought out. With summer in the rearview and winter just around the corner, now very well could be the right time for you.
Summer tends to be filled with travel, vacations and outdoor parties…and very busy schedules tend to not be the ideal time for Invisalign, as it requires you to see us every few weeks for new aligners. Thus, fall and winter may be the best bet for starting your teeth straightening journey. (And for some, if you start now, your treatment could be done by summer — just in time for all of those weddings and special events.)
Further, as schedules and travel tend to slow down during the winter, most patients are less likely to postpone or cancel their dental appointments. And staying on your appointment schedule is key with Invisalign.
Additionally, if you find yourself indoors more often, as we do in the colder months, you are more likely to brush and floss after meals. As such, you will also likely be ensuring your aligners are clean and free from food and debris. A win-win!
If you are not sure whether or not you can commit to Invisalign right now, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Milan to discuss details. You may be surprised at just how easy and convenient Invisalign can be!
