What To Know Before Starting Clear Aligners

Prairie Village, KS, dentist offers clear aligners

Are you ready to have a straight smile? Dr. Browne’s team in Prairie Village, KS, can help you achieve this with our unique clear aligner treatment. This method is less visible to others and can be done at an expedited pace, so you can have an even grin in less time than traditional orthodontic treatments take. Today, we are here to answer the many questions you may have before beginning your treatment.

How Do Clear Aligners Compare To Other Treatments?

Advances in technology have brought us more options to address uneven smiles. Some of these methods may include braces, Invisalign, at home treatments, and many other options. Our Clear Aligners are similar to these options in that they are a more discreet option. You will wear the trays every day, taking them out only during meals or for oral hygiene. They will gradually move your teeth into the proper position so that you can achieve a more uniform look. Our method of clear aligners is unique because they can correct your smile in just a few months, whereas other methods may take several years. This option focuses on the teeth that are most visible in your smile. By adjusting these, you can have a more uniform smile in less time.

Are You A Good Candidate For This Option?

This option may be helpful for patients whose teeth are noticeably out of place. For instance, if your front teeth have a space between them or are overcrowded, our discreet trays may be able to help target this issue. Before getting started, you will have a consultation with your dentist. They will examine your oral cavity, assess the severity of your misalignment, and discuss what treatment plan may be available for your needs. This method can help many patients achieve a properly straightened grin in just a few months.

Will Treatment Really Take One Year?

Traditional orthodontic treatments may take around one to two years to complete. This is because every dental structure will need to be readjusted. Our method may be able to help you correct your smile in a year or less depending on your needs. By starting this treatment this summer, you may be able to see visible results by the end of the year. A helpful advantage of this option is that, unlike braces, it is virtually invisible. This is a great option for teenage or adult patients looking to improve their appearance. Many people may find this method more comfortable than braces as well because you will be able to remove the trays to eat and brush your teeth.
