Invisalign and Halloween go together like vampires and bats – they’re a great combination. No matter what your favorite haunts are on October 31, Invisalign will not get in the way of your costume, candy eating, or a good time. Here are just some of the ways your treatment won’t interrupt your Halloween.
The only thing that can stop you from enjoying your favorite treats on Halloween is your comfort level. Sometimes during Invisalign treatment your teeth will be sensitive as they shift to their new locations in your mouth. But if you’re feeling good and loving life and ready to indulge your inner candy lover, feel free to dig into the goodies that satisfy your sweet tooth. Just remove your aligners like you already do for meals before chow down so they don’t get broken or stained.
No one wants their spooky cool Halloween photos to be interrupted by braces. That’s why you got Invisalign in the first place – to enjoy a discreet orthodontic alternative. Smile wide for every photo without worrying about anyone noticing your Invisalign trays. They’re difficult to see – all people will notice is your beautiful smile.
Sometimes braces-wearers feel obligated to alter their costume so it will make sense with their orthodontia. Invisalign wearers don’t have to worry about any such thing. Pick the outfit that suits your style, your sensibility, and your spookiness. Invisalign will stay in the background. One word of warning: Avoid vampire teeth for this Halloween at least. You can pop those fangs back in next year when your treatment is complete.
Because the amount of time you can have Invisalign out of your mouth is limited, so too is your window to indulge in Halloween candy. It’s tough to say no to all that chocolatey, sweet goodness on October 31, even if you can get your favorite treats any other time of year too. Invisalign is a built-in soldier that tells you it’s time to put the trays back in and stop chowing down. You and your stomach will appreciate the reminder. And this limited sweet-snacking will be better for your teeth. Just remember to brush and floss before you snap your trays in place.
Invisalign offers Stickables for patients who would prefer to draw attention to the quirkiness of their trays rather than hide their teeth-straightening efforts. Pumpkins, aliens, ghosts, black cats, and more can decorate the outside of the aligners for a super-spooky night. Just be sure to check with your Haymarket Invisalign provider first to make sure this is a reasonable accessory for you. Every patient is different and this may not be recommended for your unique smile.
Invisalign is designed to improve your life, to make your smile look better and be stronger and healthier. And the perks don’t stop on Halloween.
