If you have been dreaming of a straight and even smile, but you hate the idea of wearing braces, Invisalign aligners may be the ideal solution for you. There are many benefits of Invisalign. Basically, with this service, you will come in for an appointment with Dr. Headley at KC Smile in Overland Park, KS, and we will take an impression of your teeth to make your Invisalign aligners. Each set of progressive aligners (usually worn for about two weeks each) will pull your teeth farther into alignment and at the end of the process you will be given a retainer to wear at night to keep your teeth beautifully straight for years to come.
No Metal Mouth
One of the first and most obvious benefits of Invisalign is that they are basically clear braces. They are transparent and are formed so well to your teeth that most people will not be able to tell that you are wearing them unless you say something.
No Damage to Your Teeth
With traditional braces, you will not be able to brush or clean the areas where the brackets are glued to your teeth. Furthermore, all of that metal can make brushing and flossing properly impossible, which can lead to tooth decay. With Invisalign, you can simply take your aligners out whenever you want to brush or floss and then replace them when you are finished.
A More Comfortable Process
Not only does Invisalign work faster than traditional braces, but you will also not have to go through the painful process of having your braces tightened. Instead, your teeth will be gradually and gently moved into place without the pain of tightening and adjustments.
Eat Whatever You Want
For Invisalign aligners to be most effective, you will want to wear them for at least 22 hours a day and only take them out when are eating, drinking (beverages other than water), or brushing and flossing your teeth. The fact that you can take your aligners out means that you can enjoy all of your favorite foods, even the ones that would be a complete nightmare if you had traditional braces.
Invisalign clear braces are a definite improvement over old straightening methods and they come with a lot of benefits. To learn more and to find out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, call KC Smile in Overland Park, KS today at 913-491-6874 or fill out our online contact form.
