Invisalign in Kansas City

Are you tired of having crooked teeth? Having a misaligned smile can really weigh on your self-confidence. Of course, wearing braces can straighten your teeth, but perhaps that option doesn’t appeal to you - braces are extremely noticeable and can be a hassle to wear. Adults especially might be embarrassed to wear them. But just deciding to have crooked teeth isn’t a great option, either. Misaligned teeth can become more and more crooked, introducing complications and risks to your oral health that you might have not ever considered.

If you find yourself in the previously described situation, we hope you’ll consider us as your local Invisalign dentist in Kansas City! As the name implies, Invisalign is a nearly invisible alignment method for your teeth. While braces rely on brackets and metal wires to reshape your smile, Invisalign solves the same problem in its own way. Invisalign aligners are clear, plastic molds that fit your teeth, shifting them to your desired position. The process of using Invisalign to straighten your smile entails progressing through a number of these different plastic aligners. Each successive aligner adjusts your teeth just a bit more than the last until eventually you have a perfect smile.

Benefits of Invisalign

  • Invisalign is practically invisible! Most people won’t even be able to tell when you’re wearing your Invisalign aligner.
  • You can eat and drink whatever you want while you’re receiving treatment.
  • Invisalign is more comfortable than traditional braces. Without bits of metal sticking to your teeth and poking you, we think you’ll agree that this process is a lot more painless.
  • Unlike braces, Invisalign retainers don’t require long visits to the orthodontist for your brackets to be tightened.
  • Invisalign Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: From start to finish, how long does Invisalign take?

    A: The average period of treatment for Invisalign is around 12-18 months. However, you’ll start seeing positive changes in your teeth within the first couple months, but following the schedule and wearing the retainers consistently can help you finish faster.

    Q: How long do I need to wear my aligner each day?

    A: For best results, you should wear your retainer for at least 22 hours a day. You’ll need to remove them when you eat and you’ll want to clean them regularly, but save for these exceptions, we advise that you always keep your aligners in place.

    Q: How do I maintain my aligners?

    A: It is important to clean your aligners regularly in order to prevent mold and bacteria from forming in it. As you would suspect, any place as dark, warm and moist as a mouth can turn into a great habitat for unwanted bacteria. We advise you to make a habit of regularly washing your aligner to keep it clean. This will also keep your aligner from smelling bad. Some patients have had success buying denture-cleaner and allowing their aligners to soak in it for a few minutes each night while getting ready for bed.
