4 Reasons Invisalign Belongs On Your Holiday Wish List

‘Tis the season to get something to smile about with Invisalign!

If all you want this time of year is your two front teeth (to be straight), think beyond traditionalInvisalign braces. Invisalign is an alternative to braces, and suitable for many patients who want to correct their bite, close gaps, address crowded teeth and finally get that ideal smile they’ve always wanted.

It doesn’t matter if your teenage years are far behind you. While adolescent/teen teeth are the easiest to manipulate with orthodontics since they’re still shifting, adult teeth can often be treated by an orthodontist, too.

A new year and a new you can be yours. Only your orthodontist can tell you if you’re an Invisalign candidate, and if so how long your treatment plan will be. If you want to get started on your New Year’s resolution of straighter teeth a little early, check out these reasons Invisalign should top your holiday wish list:

1. It’s more affordable than you think

For those with dental insurance, both braces and Invisalign are often at least partially covered if your orthodontist considers it a necessity. Straighter teeth are certainly an aesthetic bonus, but when teeth are misaligned, they can cause trouble with biting, chewing and speaking.

However, patients without insurance (or without insurance that will cover orthodontics), still have some options. Many orthodontists offer payment plans that fit into nearly any budget. If you don’t ask, you’ll never know.

2. It’s an invisible solution

Have you been putting off orthodontics because you were traumatized by the idea of “brace face” in middle school? Relax — Invisalign is the nearly invisible solution that is often just as effective as braces. It’s a series of clear aligners that slowly manipulate your teeth into new, better positions. Plus, teens who may misplace their aligners can get up to six replacement sets free.

3. It’s a big confidence booster

Better teeth have been linked to more confidence, more promotions, more successful dating, being seen as more intelligent and being healthier. Many facets of your life can benefit from bettering your teeth. The earlier you get started with Invisalign, the sooner you can start enjoying the perks.

4. Use up those insurance benefits now

It’s the end of the year, and you know what that means — the mad rush to make the most of your benefits. Perhaps you’ve already paid your out-of-pocket maximum this year, or you have remaining benefits up for grabs. If you’ll be using insurance, at least partially, for orthodontics, December is the month to do it.

Worried that you won’t be able to enjoy your favorite holiday treats if you get orthodontics in December? With Invisalign, you’re in the clear because you can remove the aligners up to four hours each day. Call Johnson Elite Orthodontics for your Invisalign consultation today.
