Invisalign Braces in Kansas City
Everyone who has ever worn traditional metal braces is familiar with their many drawbacks: they can trap food, require careful maintenance, and often make wearers self-conscious about their smiles. Fortunately, those who need braces today can avoid the pitfalls of metal braces while straightening their teeth almost invisibly using cutting-edge and custom-fitted Invisalign clear aligners.
Benefits of Invisible Braces
Because Invisalign braces are clear and custom-molded to fit your teeth, they’re virtually invisible when you have them on. But while that may be their biggest selling point for many of our aesthetically-conscious patients, one of their greatest advantages is how easy they are to use, wear, and care for. Because they can simply be popped off, you can still brush and floss just as you always did, and your Invisalign braces are easy to clean, too! Moreover, Invisalign’s clear aligners are:
- Great for patients of all ages, from teens to adults!
- Custom molded to the shape of your teeth for added comfort!
- Able to be popped off before meals so that you can enjoy just about any food you always did!
- Engineered to exert just the right amount of force at just the right time, offering treatment times up to 50% faster!
- Made from comfortable SmartTrack material, so no more worrying about sharp wires or brackets!
- Helpful in treating a wide variety of cases including crooked or crowded teeth, gapped teeth, overbite, and more!
- Proven effective! Because Invisalign braces are crafted to fit your teeth and made to complement a care plan designed by your dentist, they are effective in treating even highly complex cases.
Also, since Invisalign braces are “made to order” with your particular teeth in mind, they can incorporate unique features such as “compliance indicators” to help you or your teen keep track of whether you’ve been wearing your Invisalign clear aligners for the prescribed amount of time each day.
How Does Invisalign Work?
For many people, the Invisalign system is the future of teeth straightening. Gone are the days of clumsy metal braces, and in their place Invisalign substitutes a series of clear aligners, each custom molded to your teeth and carefully engineered to gradually and painlessly move teeth into the desired configuration through several different sets of braces over a course of weeks. Each Invisalign clear aligner begins with a physical impression or digital scan of your teeth. This, along with a treatment plan from your dentist, is used to create Invisalign braces custom crafted to each patient. The clear aligners can be removed for eating and easy cleaning, and are worn around 22 hours a day.
