There are certain times of year that are just better for some activities than others. For example, the fall is generally better than other seasons for apple picking, while the winter is better for skiing. Spring is the perfect season to clean your house, but the summer is definitely better for a few things, too, including resting, relaxing, and starting your new Invisalign treatment. So, what’s so cool about the hotter months for taking control of your oral health? Keeping reading to see why when it comes to Invisalign, the summer is the most wonderful time of the year!

More Free Time

Summer days don’t just feel a little slower, they really do have a different pace. Traffic isn’t as bad, school’s out, and your dentist will generally have more appointments available. Take advantage of all that extra time and schedule your Invisalign consultation while you have the vacation days and the built in excuse to focus on yourself.

More Time to Get Adjusted

While Invisalign is frequently credited with being much more comfortable than traditional braces, wearing new aligners can still take some getting used to. Whether you’re looking for treatment for yourself or your child, starting orthodontics in the summer means you won’t necessarily have to rush back to the office or school, and you can rest comfortably at home until you’re better acclimated.

Great Summer Foods

Summer has its own bounty of seasonal foods that just don’t taste quite as good any other time of the year. From fresh watermelon to corn on the cob, cotton candy to burgers hot off the grill, there’s no shortage of treats to indulge in. Thankfully, with Invisalign there are no dietary restrictions because you remove your aligners to eat and put them back in after you’ve brushed your teeth, but how does a refreshing ice cream cone sound when your teeth are feeling a little sore? Take advantage of the availability of cool treats this season to help soothe your mouth when snacking.

Make it a Habit

Finally, summer break offers you the added flexibility to get adjusted to your new routine before having to return to business as usual. Practice taking your aligners off and putting them back on, cleaning them properly, brushing your teeth after each meal, and getting used to wearing them 22 hours a day. Then, when your vacation is over, you’ll already have it down and you can maintain the same level of care without missing a beat.

If you’ve been considering Invisalign but haven’t been sure when to start your treatment, there’s no time like the present. Don’t let another season go by feeling unhappy about your smile. Talk to your dentist today about getting Invisalign this summer.
