Now that it’s summer, it’s time to kick off the season in style. Summer is selfie season and that means a straight, glowing smile is your greatest asset. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your smile, you are not alone.
If you want a great summer smile, Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics is here to help. Our office offers several treatment options including Invisalign. Keep reading to learn more about this fantastic treatment option.
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners designed specifically for your needs. Invisalign straightens your smile by gradually shifting your teeth over time. With Invisalign, you avoid some of the restrictions that often come with traditional braces. Invisalign puts orthodontic treatment in your court so you can live your best life!
There are so many benefits to Invisalign clear aligners from Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics.
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?
Drs. Cowan and Whitaker know that comfort is an essential part of treatment, especially when you’re swimming and playing summer sports. Invisalign’s SmartTrack material is designed to move your teeth comfortably with less irritation.
The advantage of Invisalign clear aligners is they are removable. This flexibility reduces dietary restrictions and makes brushings/flossing easier.
Because you can take out your Invisalign aligner trays, you can eat all the popcorn and sticky foods you want! You will take your trays out for every meal, so you don’t have to worry about restricting your diet.
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 clear aligners are an excellent option for people of all ages. By wearing them for the recommended 22 hours a day, your treatment could potentially last as little as six months!
Each orthodontic treatment plan is different and must be custom-designed by Drs. Cowan and Whitaker.
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.
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. Cowan or Dr. Whitaker 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.
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.
Don’t get us wrong — traditional metal braces are a great way to straighten your teeth; they are timeless, reliable, and get the job done. While they work well for many people, they just can’t keep up with the modern technology of Invisalign clear aligners. When it comes to spending time at the lake house or in the sand, you want to feel comfortable and secure in your own skin.
If you’ve been considering Invisalign for your orthodontic treatment, there is no better time to start than this summer. At Cowan & Whitaker Orthodontics, we have A-May-Zing and affordable payment plans to help make your smile a reality.
Don’t pass this opportunity up! Schedule your free consultation with Dr. Cowan or Dr. Whitaker today!
