Are You Interested In Clear Aligners?

Prairie Village, KS dentist offers clear aligners

If you are tired of having an uneven smile, you may be researching the differences between clear aligners and traditional braces before making a decision. It’s important that you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Dr. Browne and his team in Prairie Village, KS, offer an expedited kind of clear aligners that help you achieve a straighter smile in less time.

The Difference Between Our Clear Aligners & Others

There are several forms of invisible orthodontic treatment available. Popular brands may include Invisalign, ClearCorrect, Byte, and more. Our method focuses on the most visible teeth in your smile. A series of clear trays will be created that will gradually adjust your smile to the proper position. Unlike other options, our clear aligners can help you achieve your goals within a year or less. This means that if you start treatment now, you can have an improved grin by the end of the year.

The Advantages Of Clear Aligners

Unlike metal braces, this cosmetic treatment option offers discretion and comfort. When you have braces, the brackets and wires can hinder your ability to eat certain foods. They can also rub against your cheek and lips, which can cause discomfort. You will wear clear aligners for the majority of the day, but can remove your trays when eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth.

When you wear braces, you will have to see the orthodontist every six to eight weeks for adjustments. This can be a nuisance and it can be difficult to schedule consistently if you have a packed schedule. With clear aligners, you will still need to see your dentist regularly to make sure that your alignment is being corrected properly. However, since the treatment time is shorter, you do not have to do this for an extended period of time.

How To Get Started

Clear aligners are recommended for adult patients. If you were unable to have braces as a child, this is a great way to discreetly improve your smile without others noticing. Or, if you did go through orthodontic treatment at a younger age, but your teeth have become misaligned, this may be able to fix the problem.  Before getting started, you will need a consultation with Dr. Browne. During this visit, he will examine your smile and the severity of your overcrowding. Then, impressions will be made so that your trays can be created. Once they are ready, your treatment process can begin. Remember to wear them every day, all day, with the exception of meals and oral hygiene.
