Should You Talk About Orthodontic Work With Your Dentist?

Is there a way to arrange orthodontic work through your dentist, or is it only possible to address malocclusion with a specialist? At our Prairie Village, KS dentist’s office, we have helped many people address problems with malocclusion with SureSmile Clear Aligners. These aligners differ from traditional braces because they are removable and difficult to see. They also differ from other clear braces because they are designed to provide shorter treatment times. Having access to both dental and orthodontic treatment can make the process of fixing your smile more convenient. It also allows you to address all issues related to your smile with one professional. Before beginning your adjustment, we can provide an evaluation of your oral health to make sure that you are ready to begin your correction.

Learn About The Benefits Of Treatment With Clear Aligners

There are several exciting benefits available to those who choose clear aligners over traditional braces. One reason that patients, particularly adults, feel self-conscious about orthodontic work is that they worry about how it will change their appearance. While metal braces are often seen as conspicuous, clear braces can be worn without drawing unwanted attention. When in place, their clear plastic design makes them a discreet presence. You can also enjoy having appliances that are easy to remove. Because you can take out an aligner whenever you want to eat or clean your teeth, they can fix your smile without forcing changes in your daily routine.

Starting Your Orthodontic Adjustment

Before your adjustment begins, we can check on the condition of your oral health, then arrange a careful study of your smile for planning purposes. With digital imaging technology, we are able to gather precise measurements of your teeth and oral structures, which will be used to craft your personalized appliances. Starting treatment with SureSmile Clear Aligners can be easier than you anticipate, as they avoid cosmetic and functional complications. You can also be happy to learn how these appliances reduce the time needed to straighten your teeth. SureSmile aligners are designed to focus on the movement of your front teeth, which leads to visible results sooner, and a completed treatment in less time than other appliances require.

Straighter Teeth Can Do More Than Just Change How You Look

There is more to orthodontic work than just the cosmetic benefits of straighter teeth. If you have struggled with jaw pain because of a flawed bite, an adjustment can help you move your jaw in a way that feels more natural to you. It can also become easier to prevent problems with tooth decay and gum disease after straightening overlapping teeth, as the movement of your teeth will help you keep areas that previously overlapped clean.
