Have you been wanting a healthier, more beautiful smile for a while now, but just don’t know when the right time is to start treatment?

It can be a bit overwhelming, with all the different orthodontic offices out there with different locations and all the treatment options available today. And you need to be ready to make the investment of time and money.

Sometimes you just need to look for the signs that indicate that something is right for you. Here are 3 signs an Invisalign Center City orthodontist is right for you.

You Don’t Have a Car

If you live in the Philadelphia area and don’t have a car at your disposal, commuting distance is going to be a big factor for you. You will want an orthodontist located in Center City where there are plenty of transportation options available to you. Just hop on the SEPTA El or take the train into the city. It is so easy. And if you live downtown, then you might even be able to walk to your orthodontic appointment.

You Need Flexible Hours

Your life is hectic and finding time to squeeze in orthodontic appointments on a regular basis can seem difficult. That is why you need to go with an Invisalign Center City orthodontist. Center City orthodontic offices are known for having flexible hours and because they are conveniently located you can easily make an appointment before or after work and have no problem getting back and forth in record time.

You Dread Having a “Metal Mouth”

If one of the main reasons you have been dragging your heels about starting orthodontic treatment is the dreaded “metal mouth,” then definitely consider an Invisalign Center City orthodontist.

Invisalign aligners are made of a clear plastic so no one will even know you have them on. And because they are easily removed for eating and for brushing and flossing, they are not hard to adjust to at all.

And by getting your Invisalign treatment in Center City, you are guaranteed to have the best treatment possible because Center City is a hot hub of the latest technology and science. It is the best place to go for the most advanced orthodontic treatment.

Here are some other things to consider about Invisalign:

Unlike traditional braces which are a combination of metal brackets and wires that you wear for the duration of your treatment. With Invisalign, only certain teeth will be moved at a time. You will be given several sets of aligners that are custom fit to your mouth. The Invisalign aligners control not only how much force is exerted on your teeth, but also the timing of it.

The Invisalign 3D technology allows your orthodontist to create a step by step plan for your treatment so you will know what to expect every step of the way. The orthodontist will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to create a 3-D image of your teeth and then uses this to map the exact movement of teeth needed to straighten them out.

Once the plan is in place, your first set of aligners will be custom fit to your mouth. And then you will receive a new set every couple of weeks until the end of your treatment.

In addition, unlike with braces, when you wear Invisalign aligners, there are no food restrictions because you can remove the aligners when you eat. Brushing and flossing your teeth is also easier because you can remove them. The one big rule for wearing Invisalign aligners is that you need to keep them in your mouth 20 to 22 hours a day. If you don’t, you will end up delaying treatment and you won’t be done as quickly as you would like.

In order to prevent long gaps in between when you are wearing the aligners, make it a habit to brush your teeth and clean the aligners right after every meal so that you remember to put them back in right away.

For tweens and teenagers, Invisalign typically takes as long as metal braces do. However for adults, Invisalign treatment can often be finished in as little as 12 months. And there are accelerated orthodontic treatments that you can do on top of the Invisalign aligners to speed up the process.
