Invisalign: Are You Ready For The Winter Season?

Are you all prepared for the winter season ahead now that you’re receiving Invisalign treatment? Do you have a perplexed look on your face at the moment because you didn’t realize there were seasonal issues that could have an effect on your orthodontic care? The truth is, the system will continue to work the same, of course. However, some outside factors may make the process less smooth than usual. Take our tips to heart, so you enjoy complete success.

Keep Lip Balm On Hand

You’ll be taking your trays in and out like you always do. However, now it will be very cold. You may find that you’re exposed to central heat very frequently, which can dry out your lips. If you get a cold, dry mouth may occur. To make sure your smile remains comfortable, apply lip balm liberally, so using Invisalign treatment does not literally become a pain.

Don’t Travel Without Your Trays

Traveling for the holidays? Bring your Invisalign trays with you or you’ll be looking at slowed progress!

Always Follow The Rules!

It’s so easy to allow the twinkling lights of the winter season to steer you a bit off course with your Invisalign treatment. When your calendar is a bit more scattered than usual, you can find yourself at gatherings, on a new schedule, and more, that can make it more difficult to be prepared to take your trays out when you’re supposed to (and to remember to wear them as frequently as is necessary). Take a moment to plan right now to have a case on hand and to keep an eye on the clock. Easy!
