Why Millions of Adults and Teens Choose Invisalign® to Straighten Their Teeth

Although it’s more common in childhood and adolescence, it’s never too late to get the orthodontic treatment you need. That said, many adults are understandably hesitant to get braces. 

Thanks to Invisalign®, adults and teens can discreetly straighten their teeth and correct bite and alignment issues without traditional braces.

At Arden Dental Group, our dentists offer general and cosmetic dentistry services including Invisalign at our office, serving the greater Asheville, North Carolina, area. 

The benefits of choosing Invisalign to straighten your teeth

Orthodontic problems can present a Catch-22 for adults and teenagers: Bite problems and crooked teeth can cause oral health problems and social embarrassment, but the thought of wearing traditional braces may seem worse. 

Invisalign does all of the heavy lifting and work of braces without the braces.

For starters, Invisalign consists of a series of custom-fit removable aligner trays made of clear plastic that look nearly invisible. You can continue to enjoy your normal routine and social life without awkward questions or uncomfortable attempts to hide your teeth. 

Invisalign can be especially beneficial for teenagers, who might feel self-conscious about their appearance as they navigate adolescence and social pressure to fit in with their peers. Invisalign gives teens the opportunity to get the orthodontic care they need without worrying about how they look.

Invisalign is convenient and easy to use

Invisalign also offers practical benefits. For starters, you can remove the trays for up to two hours each day, allowing you to brush and floss as usual and to continue to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about anything getting stuck in your braces or having to cut out certain foods.

You wear each tray for about two weeks and then discard it for the next one. Depending on your situation, the treatment period is sometimes shorter with Invisalign than with traditional braces.

Is Invisalign right for you or your teen?

The first step is to call our office to set up an appointment. After a comprehensive dental exam and evaluation, we make recommendations for the best treatment option for you and determine whether Invisalign is right for you. 

In general, Invisalign is a good option for common orthodontic problems like crowding, overbite, crossbite, underbite, and an open bite. In order for Invisalign to work effectively, you must wear the trays as directed and keep them in for 22 hours every day.
