Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could correct your misaligned teeth without needing to go through the long, sometimes uncomfortable process of traditional orthodontic treatments? Well, with the invention of Asheville clear aligners, that's exactly what you can do!
Clear aligners, also known as tooth-straightening trays, are a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to gradually align your teeth and improve their position and function.
Unlike traditional orthodontics, which involves using metal wires and brackets, clear aligners are completely transparent, allowing you to wear them without anyone even being able to tell that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment. If your teeth are slightly misaligned, it can affect your smile, comfort, and confidence. Clear aligners are a great way to correct small imperfections in your smile without the need for traditional braces.
There's so much talk these days about the need to hide braces and other orthodontic treatments. But, with clear aligners, this isn't necessary. Clear aligners are completely transparent! You can wear them during your day, and no one will know that you're correcting your teeth.
That means that you can keep your family, friends, and coworkers in the dark about your treatment. You can still smile, chat, laugh, and enjoy life without anyone even knowing what you've been up to.
Clear aligners are made of a clear plastic material. It means that patients can comfortably wear without feeling like they're wearing a mouth full of metal. The plastic material allows them to offer unparalleled comfort.
However, it is noteworthy that clear aligners may still discomfort the wearer. That is because you are still wearing something after all, and they work to slowly position your teeth and correct misalignment.
Unlike traditional orthodontics, clear aligners are removable. Thus, patients can brush and floss as they normally would. It also means that patients do not need to worry about the daily cleaning of their metal braces. In other words, clear aligners do not affect your oral hygiene routine.
With clear aligners, patients can enjoy their favorite foods and beverages without worrying about how they might affect their orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces where you are restricted from eating specific types of food at a certain point of your treatment, you don't need to do that with clear aligners.
Manufacturers use medical-grade polyurethane resin to make clear aligners. This material is FDA approved, which means that it is safe for your teeth and overall health. Unlike regular plastic, clear aligners do not contain toxic chemicals like bisphenol A (BPA) which is closely linked with high blood pressure, obesity, and cancer.
That is why clear aligners are a great option for patients at increased risk for these conditions. They truly are safe.
