As a member of the teaching profession, there is no need to begin another school year feeling self-conscious about your smile. Invisalign® braces correct misalignments over the summer without the metal mouth that traditional braces create. The guide below explains why the warm-weather season is ideal for you to start using these clear aligners.
4 Reasons Teachers Should Get Invisalign Braces This Summer
1. Scheduling Flexibility
Most teachers enjoy greater scheduling flexibility in the summer, even if they have commitments such as second jobs and children. Take advantage of this relative freedom by scheduling all the appointments you need to catch up on, including for braces. Invisalign is ideal even once the school year picks up again, since you can book appointments every six weeks instead of the traditional monthly visits traditional braces require.
2. Sufficient Adjustment Time
Getting used to braces can take a few weeks, even when they come in convenient and comfortable plastic form. Instead of starting Invisalign at the beginning of the school year and learning how to speak comfortably in front of new students, use the summer to adjust and build extra confidence.
3. No Food Restrictions
Many foods get stuck in traditional braces, especially sticky ones, which increases your risk of tooth discoloration and decay. Crunchy foods are also problematic because they can bend wire brackets. Since Invisalign can be removed before each meal or snack, you’re free to savor all of your favorite summer foods, like corn on the cob and amusement park treats without problems.
4. Quicker Results
Metal braces are typically worn for two years or longer, while Invisalign provides fantastic results in about a year. It’s also common to notice changes in the first few weeks of use. Start now for a smile that will continue improving throughout the school year.
