Straightening Your Smile As An Adult

Prairie Village, KS ,dentist offers clear aligners

Did you know that an estimated one million US adults will need to go through some form of orthodontic treatment in their lives? Whether you were unable to have braces as a child, or your teeth have shifted out of place over time, it is not too late for you to have an even smile. Dr. Browne and his team in Prairie Village, KS, offer clear aligners to help you discreetly achieve your goals.

Fix Crooked Teeth Sooner

You may already be familiar with the many orthodontic options available to patients today. There are metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign, Clear Correct, and even self-guided methods. Each of these options has its advantages and disadvantages. Our method of clear aligners is unique from other treatments because it can be completed in less than a year by adjusting the most visible teeth first. Instead of waiting several years to have a symmetrical grin, start now and enjoy your results by next Valentine’s Day.

Why You Should Choose This Method

In addition to achieving fast and efficient results, this option is invisible to others, comfortable, and can improve your oral health. These clear retainers are made of acrylic and are shaped to your teeth. Using measurements of your oral cavity, a treatment plan can be created to slowly adjust your pearly whites into place. Since there are no wires, brackets, or rubber bands needed, this is often found to be a more comfortable option. You can also remove them to eat and brush your teeth, which makes oral hygiene easier.

How To Get Started

First, you will need to have a consultation with Dr. Browne. Our clear aligners mostly target cosmetic and visual concerns. If you have more severe crowding, gapping, or bite problems, a more thorough orthodontic treatment plan may be necessary. If you are determined to be a good candidate, the process will move forward. Measurements will be taken of your oral cavity and sent to a lab. A treatment plan will be created to plan out how your teeth need to be adjusted. Then, clear acrylic aligners can be crafted.

You will wear these every day for the majority of the day. The only time you should remove them is for meals, drinking, and doing your oral hygiene. Remember to wear these when you sleep, too. Your dentist will let you know when to move on to the next set. If you have any questions during your treatment, you can ask your dentist.
