Will Invisalign Disrupt My Life?

Teeth can shift out of alignment even in adulthood, and many dental patients may resign themselves to crooked teeth out of fear of disruption with orthodontic treatment. Invisalign can straighten teeth with little interruption to your daily life. You can see improved oral health and an enhanced smile with easy cosmetic dental treatment with Invisalign. Dr. Christopher Rebol, a dentist in Asheville, NC, describes the benefits of choosing Invisalign to straighten crooked teeth.

Discreet appearance

Many dental patients worry that orthodontic treatment will detract from the appearance of their smiles during the teeth straightening process. Bulky metal braces can draw the eye of the general public, bringing attention to your cosmetic treatment. Invisalign consists of a set of clear-colored aligners that are crafted based on 3D imaging of your unique smile. They are opaque and fit comfortably in your mouth, so they are not easily visible to onlookers. This allows you more privacy with your treatment as well as more confidence in your smile’s appearance while you straighten your teeth.

No diet restrictions

One of the concerns of orthodontics such as metal braces is diet limitations. Patients with braces are asked to avoid chewy, sticky, and hard foods so that they do not break the wire or brackets of their braces. Invisalign is removable, and you can take the appliance out of your mouth while eating. This way, you can enjoy the foods you love without worrying about their effect on your cosmetic treatment. Since the appliance is removable, it is also easy to keep Invisalign clean because you can wash it separately.

Fewer dental appointments

The process involved in straightening teeth is a commitment, with treatment lasting weeks, months, or in some cases of traditional braces, even years. Patients worry about the time it takes out of their daily lives to visit the dentist’s office for adjustments every few weeks. With Invisalign, you will require fewer visits to the dentist for your treatment. You do not need braces tightened – your dentist will provide you with a new set of aligners every two weeks for your treatment. In some cases, you can have these aligners sent to your home and avoid scheduling an appointment altogether. You can spend less time in a dental chair with Invisalign.
