How to move long distance with Invisalign braces

Preparing for a move can be stressful. There’s all the laborious packing and boxing, as well as the nightmare of coordinating moving vans and your friends. Not to mention rerouting mail, changing your address on a variety of accounts, and navigating your new neighborhood. For Invisalign users, you might wonder if moving with braces is going to present new problems. The answer is yes, but we’ve got solutions to match. Let’s review what to do if you have Invisalign and need to move halfway through treatment.

One of the benefits that nobody talks about

If you’re moving with Invisalign, there are a few things to consider. You need to ensure that your aligners are safely packed during the move, if not securely in your mouth. Be sure to pack them in a small bag like an overnight bag.

Let your orthodontist know you will have to switch Invisalign orthodontists so they can prepare your documents to be sent to your new doctor, also discuss having your initial records, treatment plan, and reason for your treatment sent to the new office.

There may be some additional difficulties if you’re moving with braces, but there’s one thing that should be fairly simple. Due to the popularity of Invisalign, finding orthodontists who offer Invisalign® in your new neighborhood should be a breeze. And if you are moving to Southern California, you’re in luck. Invisalign Diamond Provider® Dr. Mario Paz is one of the best orthodontists in Los Angeles County for Invisalign.

A common scenario

For teens thinking about getting Invisalign in high school or college, there are many other things to consider. If you get braces before going to college, depending on your treatment plan, you may have to return back to the office more than once or twice a semester. Will you stay with your current orthodontist and schedule your appointments during summer or winter breaks?
