Dads and Grads: Summer is the Perfect Time to Start Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign

Warmer weather and longer days – it must be Grads and Dads season. It’s also “you should absolutely start Invisalign treatment” season.

But, before we dive in:

Congrats, Grads

You did it. All the hard work, the sleepless nights – it was all worth getting to hearing your name called, walking the stage in front of family and friends, and leaving with a diploma in hand. We at Truman Orthodontics Henderson salute you. 

Graduations are a major personal and professional event – marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. It could also be a time for a much needed restore and refresh. Whether high school or college – finals are so stressful. And, let’s be honest: a self care routine is nowhere to be found during those last few weeks of the semester. 

So, before you tackle that advanced degree or jump start your career, why not take the next three months to embark on a wellness journey – one that helps keep your health in check and the confidence boost can’t hurt? Do us a favor and put a pin in that. A quick word with the dads is in order.

Thank you, Dads

Mothers get all the love in May. Fathers have June.

While everyday is a good day to show love and appreciation for the parental figures in our lives, this month puts dads center stage. With the school season coming to close, the odds of dad needing a little TLC are very high. Parents so often make sacrifices for their children. In the process, their personal (namely, health) gets put on the back burner. It’s time to tell them: slow down, take it easy, and let’s tackle some overdue self-maintenance.

Unfortunately, when it comes to stress, a common tell-tale sign is oral health neglect. It even happens to those with the most diligent routines. Furthermore, between tight schedules and even tighter budgets, achieving that perfect smile can feel like a goal that’s completely out of reach. With Pomp and Circumstance playing on a loop for at least another three weeks and Father’s Day just around the corner, here’s why Summer is the perfect time to give the gift of Invisalign. 

Timing is Everything

Classes are no longer in session. And that unused PTO just waiting to be approved. Summer presents two irrefutable benefits when it comes to orthodontic treatment:

  • Any medical procedure requires an adjustment period. In the event of any discomfort, or as one adjusts to any necessary lifestyle changes, it’s better to do while binge watching Bridgerton than between classes or meetings. 
  • With kids on break and busy adults taking time off, your local orthodontist increases their availability. So, for the next ten weeks, there’s a good chance you can make an appointment for sooner rather than later. 

Adaptability – check. 

Availability – check. 

And, personalization – check. 

Today, there are various options available (upon establishing candidacy, of course) that suit various personalities and lifestyles. A common alternative to metal or ceramic braces are clear aligners – a discreet solution for those mainly concerned with comfort and aesthetics. The leading innovator in that space is Invisalign. 

The Choice is Clear

An Invisalign journey begins with taking a scan of your teeth. Then, state of the art computer software designs a personalized plan that will yield the best result. Once the aligner trays are in hand, the same principles used in traditional methods apply. By applying small, carefully controlled forces to your teeth, they are gradually moved in a better position. And, not to toot our own horn, but Truman Orthodontics is an Invisalign VIP Diamond Plus Provider. In other words, Dr. Truman knows a thing or two about getting results using clear aligners. 

Unlike braces, Invisalign trays can be removed. That means no food restrictions throughout treatment. But, there’s a caveat that comes with that kind of flexibility. If you can remember to put the aligners back in, if you can’t fathom the idea of losing them, and if you can keep the aligners clean, the clear power of Invisalign may be an ideal choice. 

The Gift That Keeps on Giving

This summer, skip the frames and neck ties. For the Grad or Dad in your life, consider the gift of ortho. Dr. Truman and the TruCrew offer a unique experience that is fun, affordable, interactive, and effective. Personalized care, friendly staff, coffee on tap, and a game room? It’s practically an all-inclusive resort. 

We would offer fancy drinks with umbrellas in them; but, that’s probably a no-go with Dr. Truman. What we do have are plenty of scanners and an incredible relationship with Invisalign. Whether in-office or virtual, the first step to a healthy, beautiful smile is completely complimentary. Now, that’s a proposition that both the gift giver and the giftee can get behind.
