Invisalign in Asheville, NC
Drs. Rebol and Sparks are experienced cosmetic dentists in Asheville, NC. They have helped many of our patients straighten their smiles using Invisalign technology. Invisalign is a system of clear aligners, shaped similar to retainers. The plastic, see-through material allows patients to straighten their smiles without anyone knowing they are undergoing treatment. Over time, the aligners apply pressure to your teeth and encourage them to shift into a straighter, more desirable position. Some of the benefits of treating your crooked teeth using Invisalign include:
- Removability – You can easily remove your Invisalign clear aligners to eat, drink, and brush your teeth throughout the day. As long as you wear your Invisalign aligners for an average of 20-22 hours a day, your treatment plan will still progress as planned.
- No Added Oral Hygiene Precautions – With traditional braces, many patients are aware that they will need to adapt their oral hygiene routine to include added maintenance like brushing and flossing around the metal brackets and wires. However, with Invisalign’s removability, patients don’t have to worry about this inconvenience. Instead, Invisalign patients can simply remove the aligners to brush and floss, rinse the aligners off under cold water, and reapply the aligners once their at-home hygiene routine is complete.
- No Dietary Restrictions – Patients with metal braces are advised to avoid excessively crunchy and chewy foods to prevent damage to their dental hardware. However, Invisalign patients don’t have to worry about this. The aligners are very durable while in use and can be easily removed when you want to eat or drink.
- Less Time Spent In The Dental Chair – Metal braces only work as the hardware is slowly tightened over time to create pressure on your dental structures. This requires many visits to the dentist’s office for tightening and maintaining the hardware. With Invisalign, patients are given all of their aligners at the beginning of their treatment plan. While some check-up appointments may be necessary, you will spend way less time in the dental chair with Invisalign than you would with traditional braces.
