Are You A Good Candidate For Clear Aligners?

Prairie Village, KS dentist offers expedited clear aligners process

It can be overwhelming to decide on the best way to straighten your smile with so many options available to you. Companies such as Byte offer an at-home alignment option, and Clear Correct or Invisalign are also commonly used by dentists in-office to help patients discreetly address gapping or overcrowding problems. If you are looking for an invisible and fast way to achieve an even smile, you can talk to Dr. Browne and his team in Prairie Village, KS about clear aligners.

Why Choose Clear Aligners

If you have mild alignment problems and are looking for a way to improve this in a short amount of time, clear aligners are a great way to do this. At-home methods, such as Byte, offer this with little orthodontic supervision. With our clear aligners, you can achieve a straight smile discreetly, but with professional guidance in case you have any questions or concerns. Instead of waiting several years to improve your smile, this can be achieved in a few months. This means that if you start now, you may have a symmetrical smile by the end of the year. If you have important events coming up during your treatment, you will not have to worry about others noticing your orthodontic appliances.

Getting Started With This Method

To begin this process, you will first need a consultation with Dr. Browne. The team will examine your smile and take measurements of your oral cavity. If your overcrowding or gapping problems are more severe, another orthodontic option may be recommended. If you are approved for this method, your measurements will be sent to a lab and your clear retainers will be created. To be a good candidate for this method, your teeth and gums will need to be in good health. If you have cavities, they will need to be treated before beginning the process. For patients with gingivitis, your dentist may recommend deep cleaning to manage the problem first.

During The Process

Based on your measurements, a treatment plan will be created to map out the adjustments that need to be made. This treatment plan will be used to create the aligners. You will wear these every day, even when you sleep. The only time that they should be taken out are to eat, drink, or brush your teeth. This method is recommended for patients who are mature and responsible enough to keep up with wearing the retainers.

The length of time you need the clear aligners will depend on the severity of your misalignment. This method focuses on adjusting the more visible teeth so that you can have a straighter smile in less time.
