Travel Tips for People with Invisalign This Holiday Season
Posted on 12/18/2017

The holidays are almost here, which can mean many wonderful things this time of the year – getting together with friends and family, eating delicious holiday food, celebrating, and getting exciting gifts that you may or may not actually have wanted. It’s truly one of the most fun times of the year! As your trusted providers of Thomasville and Valdosta, GA  Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, we don’t want to put a damper on your holiday spirit by making you have to struggle through your orthodontic treatment. We’ll always be right there by your side...even if you’re on vacation and we literally can’t be there with you! If you’re one of the many that have travel plans this holiday season and you’re undergoing treatment with Invisalign, allow us to help make the journey much smoother by providing you with a few tips.

Let Your Orthodontist Know About Your Longer Trips

Invisalign requires patients to change sets of aligners every two weeks, which may pose a bit of a problem if you’re going on vacation for a while. If you’ll be far away during the holidays and you can’t make the trip back to get your next set of aligners, you may feel like you’re out-of-luck. Not to worry though! At Adams Orthodontics, we’ll make sure that you have the next set on-hand so that your orthodontic treatment won’t cut short or even ruin your holiday plans. Just make sure to let your Thomasville, GA orthodontist know beforehand. Depending on where you are, we may even be able to ship them directly to you! After all, you’ll have much more important things to think about during the holidays!

Have Backups Available and Ready

Tying into the previous point, longer trips can provide several problems for those who are undergoing orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. Another of these potential issues is if you were to lose an aligner. Well, let’s be honest here – we should say “if your child loses an aligner!” It’s truthfully not very uncommon for teenagers to lose their aligners, which is why Invisalign Teen comes with up to six replacement aligners at no additional charge. Just make sure to talk with your Thomasville and Valdosta, GA orthodontist about it beforehand.

Bring a Portable Kit

Make sure to have a portable kit to store your Invisalign supplies. Not only will it be able to hold your Invisalign case and aligners (when you’re not wearing them) so that you’ll always remember where they are, but it’ll contain all of the tools necessary for cleaning your teeth and aligners on-the-go. We recommend keeping a travel toothbrush, a small tube of toothpaste, and denture tablets in your kit.
