Invisalign Clear Braces in Overland Park
KC Smile offers patients the most preferred alternative to braces, Invisalign® clear braces at our Overland Park dentist office. These clear braces work just as well as traditional braces but without the discomfort and unsightly appearance. Teens and adults are opting for Invisalign now more than ever to achieve their perfect smile without feeling embarrassed by the sight of metal braces. They can correct a multitude of orthodontic and cosmetic problems in a comfortable and convenient way.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign system is easy at KC Smile in Overland Park. First, we will assess your smile to determine if you are a candidate for them. Next, our dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them off to the lab where your aligners are made. Once your aligners are ready, you will wear them for 2 weeks before swapping them out for the next pair. The clear braces slowly move your teeth, resulting in a less painful experience than with metal braces. Depending on your individual case, your treatment will take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. To ensure your treatment plan is progressing well, you will visit our dentist every couple of months.
Benefits of Invisalign
There are many benefits to choosing clear aligners over traditional metal braces. First, the aligners are removable. This means you can eat whatever you want, and brush and floss normally. Another benefit is that they are completely comfortable and invisible. You will go through your day forgetting they are in your mouth, especially because of their invisible appearance. The thermoplastic aligners are made specifically to the shape of your mouth, so they fit perfectly. You won’t ever have to worry about cutting your lip, mouth or tongue on wires which makes Invisalign ideal for patients who want a comfortable treatment. Invisalign can benefit patients seeking a comfortable and convenient treatment.
Another benefit is their invisible appearance. Adults usually ignore orthodontic treatment because they don’t want to look like a teenager with braces. This all changes with Invisalign because they treatment is practically invisible, and that’s a fact. Lastly, one of the benefits is the increase of confidence it brings patients. With traditional braces, patients tend to feel self-conscious about their mouth full of metal. This isn’t true with Invisalign clear aligners.
Candidates for Invisalign Clear Braces
Clear braces are great for almost any patient. Whether you have neglected your retainer and your teeth have shifted or this is your first orthodontic treatment, clear braces are for you. Invisalign can correct gaps, misalignment, crookedness, and slight overbites, under bites and cross bites. Our dentist will evaluate your smile and let you know if you are a candidate.
Maintain Dental Health
One aspect of orthodontics patients usually forget is that metal braces interrupt good hygiene practice. There are wires and brackets covering your teeth that make it hard to brush and floss properly. This can lead to periodontal disease, cavities, staining, and tooth decay. Invisalign clear aligners are removable, which allows you to maintain your regular dental hygiene habits. As a result, your smile will stay healthy throughout your entire treatment. Be sure to follow aftercare instructions for best results.
