Discover The Benefits Of Clear Aligners


Prairie Village, KS, dentist offers clear aligners

Straightening your smile is an investment, so it is important to know all of your options before beginning treatment. Each method offers its advantages and disadvantages. Traditional braces can help correct uneven teeth, but they can be highly apparent to others. Some companies offer at-home discreet alignment options, but they could shut down at any time and leave you in the dark. Dr. Browne’s team in Prairie Village, KS, offers clear aligners that can improve your appearance in under a year. Today, we will be discussing the many benefits of this treatment.

Achieve An Even Smile Privately

One of the most obvious benefits of this treatment is that it is less noticeable than braces. Traditional orthodontic methods use metal brackets and wires to gradually move your pearly whites into place. While this is an effective treatment, the metal stands out against your teeth and may not be desirable for all patients. There are more subtle options such as ceramic braces, but these can be more expensive and may not be offered in all offices. Alternatively, our clear aligners shift your teeth using virtually invisible trays. Others will not be able to tell you are wearing them. This makes it great for working professionals or people with important events happening within the next year.

Adjust Your Teeth In Less Time

Traditional orthodontic methods can take an average of two years depending on the severity of your misalignment. This can vary depending on if bite problems need to be addressed or if you have extreme spacing issues. Our method focuses on the teeth that show in your smile. This means that it may only take a year or less to achieve your goals. Our treatment is a great option for patients who do not have extreme adjustments to be made. If you have a few concerns with your smile, this can help correct them without needing to wait years or wear irritating braces. You will have a consultation with your dentist before starting this treatment to determine if it is a good option for your needs.

Enjoy A More Comfortable Option

Lastly, this solution may be more comfortable than others. With braces, you will need to avoid eating certain foods to not damage your brackets. The wire can also rub against your gums and the inside of your cheek, which can cause discomfort. Our see-through trays will fit snuggly to your oral cavity and can be taken out during meals and hygiene. You will wear these for the majority of the day and at night. This offers a more comfortable option for patients to correct their appearance.
