Are you ready for Summer 2022? We know we are! Every year when summer rolls around, we don’t take a vacation — this is our busy season! That’s because summer is the time when most people are thinking about their smiles, and they come to us to get them picture-perfect.
If summer has you second-guessing the straightness of your teeth, you aren’t alone. Luckily, our team at Sohn Orthodontics has just the right treatment plan for you: Invisalign! When you’re looking for that perfect grin, you don’t want bulky wires and brackets getting in the way. Invisalign makes straightening your smile an easy and nearly invisible process.
At Sohn Orthodontics, we know how important your smile is, and this summer is the perfect time to get started with orthodontic treatment. Dr. Sohn knows how effective Invisalign is, and we’ve got the facts to prove it. Keep reading to learn why Invisalign is the best treatment for your Summer 2022!
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a practically invisible orthodontic treatment method that uses a series of customized clear aligner trays to shift your smile in line over time. Dr. Sohn personalizes each tray to fit your unique smile so that you get the best results. By wearing your aligner trays for 20-22 hours per day, some patients complete treatment in as little as six months.
Who benefits from Invisalign?
People of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy the benefits of Invisalign clear aligners. Your treatment could even be as short as six months if you wear them as instructed by Dr. Sohn!
While each orthodontic treatment plan is different and must be custom-designed by the team at Sohn Orthodontics, Invisalign has the flexibility to work for a wide variety of orthodontic issues.
Invisalign for Teens
Invisalign for Teens comes with all the same benefits as Invisalign for adults, but with the added bonus of two additional factors. When you opt for Invisalign as a teenager, Dr. Sohn applies special “compliance indicators” to your back teeth. These dots help change colors depending on how often you wear your trays, so our team can help hold teens accountable for treatment.
Did you know that nearly one in every five orthodontic patients is over the age of 18? Clear aligner trays are a great option for adults seeking orthodontic treatment. The transparency of these aligners puts them ahead of the orthodontic game because they are more aesthetically pleasing than traditional braces.
Additionally, as teens’ jaws are still developing during treatment, Invisalign for Teens accounts for potential jaw growth. Teen treatment includes eruption tabs that hold space for molars to grow in.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are so many benefits to Invisalign clear aligners from Sohn Orthodontics. Our Invisalign treatment plan helps you achieve a stunning smile without traditional braces with a series of clear aligner trays. These trays straighten your smile by shifting your teeth gradually over time.
The best part is that with Invisalign, you won’t be held back by the same restrictions that most people complain about with traditional braces. Invisalign puts orthodontic treatment in your court so you can live your best life this summer.
Traditional braces are semi-permanently attached to your teeth, which means you’ll be married to them for the duration of your treatment — no taking them off for a special occasion. The advantage of Invisalign clear aligners is that they are removable. This flexibility is excellent for several reasons: they are more hygienic overall, require zero dietary restrictions, and promote active lifestyles.
When it comes to brushing your teeth, traditional metal braces come with a learning curve. The nooks and crannies created by the brackets and wires give bacteria more places to hide while making it harder to clean your teeth. However, your removable Invisalign trays make it so that you can keep your regular hygiene routine, keeping your teeth healthier and cleaner overall.
Because you can take out your Invisalign aligner trays, you can eat all the popcorn and sticky foods you want! You’ll take your trays out for every meal, so you don’t have to worry about restricting your diet to maintain your treatment plan.
For those of you who live active lifestyles, Invisalign is the treatment plan for you. You can remove your trays during sports practice to reduce the possibility of injury — you can’t do that with braces!
Invisalign uses a system of clear aligner trays to help guide your teeth into their new positions over time. Because they are transparent, they are practically invisible to your friends and family — no one will even know you’re going through orthodontic treatment!
If you’re looking for the perfect summer smile, what better way to go than with an invisible treatment plan? Straight teeth without the noticeable metal braces: best of both worlds, right?
Dr. Sohn knows that comfort is an essential part of treatment, especially when you’re swimming and playing summer sports. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign trays fit snuggly over your teeth with a smooth feel that won’t irritate your mouth. Invisalign’s SmartTrack material is designed for comfortability.
Invisalign clear aligners move with you, so you don’t have to live your life around your orthodontic treatment plan. They’re perfect for athletes and couch surfers alike — you can even sleep with them without disruption!
