Is your smile as uniform as you would like it to be? When considering options for straightening your smile, you have alternatives to traditional orthodontic correction. By understanding the differences between each appliance, you can more easily decide which to select. Each service approaches the same goal of a straighter smile but goes about accomplishing this task in different ways. We offer Orthodontic Clear Aligners to help you bring your teeth into position with minimal impact on your smile’s appearance. This means you can enjoy a healthier, beautiful smile without worrying about how you look during treatment. Because clear aligners are removable, you can also enjoy an easier time performing your oral hygiene routine each morning and evening. If you would like to learn more about this system, please contact a member of our staff.
At your Prairie Village, KS, dental practice, we know that you pursue orthodontic service for both its cosmetic benefits and effect on your health. That’s why we offer a clear aligner option that takes into consideration how you look throughout the year of your treatment. Additionally, the creation of multiple aligner trays means you simply move on to the next set instead of coming into our office for constant readjustments. This helps you minimize your time in the dentist’s chair so you can get back to doing what you love most.
How Crooked Teeth Impact Your Oral Health
The esthetic effects of a straighter smile are rather attractive, but did you know orthodontics can help you preserve your oral health as well? When your teeth are evenly spaced, you have an easier time reaching the entire surface of each tooth and can fit your floss between each edge. On the other hand, when teeth are crooked or begin to crowd, you can develop pockets of plaque that hide in areas you cannot clean. Even with multiple brushing sessions per day, these pockets persist, increasing your odds of cavities and gum disease.
Creating Your Clear Aligner Treatment
At your initial consultation, we will examine your smile to determine if you are a candidate for clear aligner treatment. Using modern imaging techniques, we will create a three-dimensional model of your current bite. By entering this model into our software, we can project how your smile will appear after successful correction. Moving forward, we send the model to an offsite lab where they will create a custom set of aligner trays for you to wear over the coming months.
