Straightening Smiles With Clear Orthodontics

When you have dental misalignment, this could impact both the appearance and overall health of your smile. But our team can provide orthodontic treatment to correct the alignment of your teeth. In fact, your Prairie Village, KS, dentist can help straighten your smile with a series of clear aligners instead of metal braces!

The Risks Associated with Untreated Misalignment

How does dental misalignment impact your smile? Crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth could make thorough brushing and flossing a difficult process, which then increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. The alignment issues could also strain your jaw joints, so you are more vulnerable to issues like TMJ disorder and bruxism (chronic teeth grinding). You may also feel embarrassed about your appearance, and could avoid social situations. Don’t let your overall oral health and quality of life suffer, talk to our team about treatment options. You deserve an even smile, and we can help with a cosmetic approach.

Creating Your Custom Orthodontic Aligners

To begin, our team will examine your smile to understand the cause and severity of your misalignment. We want to make sure that clear aligners are the best choice for you. If so, then our team will take detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles. We use these to help design and fabricate the custom aligners from a BPA-free plastic material. Each set is custom-fitted to aid your smile in the journey to better alignment. They will fit comfortably and be practically invisible when in place!

The Treatment Process

There will be a series of clear plastic aligners, and you will start wearing a set for two weeks at a time, 20 to 22 hours a day on average. Each set then moves the smile closer and closer to proper alignment. During the treatment process, you can also remove the aligners before meals, so you don’t have to alter your diet and avoid certain items. Being removable also means a much easier time brushing and flossing your teeth during treatment, so you avoid cavities, teeth stains, and gum disease. The orthodontics are also easy to use, clean, and store.
