Achieve Your Smile Goal Faster

Prairie Village, KS, dentist offers clear aligners

We’re just about halfway through the year. If one of your goals for the year is to finally address your uneven smile, it’s not too late to begin. Dr. Browne’s team in Prairie Village, KS, offers a clear alignment treatment that can be completed in under a year. Today, we’ll discuss how this method compares to other traditional orthodontic methods.

We Focus On The Most Noticeable Teeth

Our clear aligner method focuses on your most noticeable front teeth. Instead of adjusting each individual tooth, we will concentrate on adjusting the ones that show the most in your smile. This allows us to straighten our smile in less time than traditional orthodontic methods. Before getting started, you will need a consultation with Dr. Browne. We will perform a thorough examination of your oral cavity to assess the severity of your uneven teeth. This method is great for patients with mild to moderate alignment concerns. If you are approved for this option, we will take an impression of your oral cavity to create your custom trays. Treatment times can vary based on patients needs, but most take less than one year to complete.

You Can Take Your Aligners Out During Meals

This method offers several benefits over metal braces. First, the process takes about half the time as braces. It may also be more comfortable because you can take out your aligners during meals or when doing your oral hygiene routine. Metal brackets and wires can be uncomfortable because they are bonded to your teeth. You may have to avoid eating some of your favorite foods as you go through treatment to avoid damaging your appliances. Our method of clear aligners should be worn for the majority of the day but can be removed when necessary. The series of trays are created to fit your smile precisely, so they may offer more comfort than other methods. Your dentist can show you how to clean them when you take them out.

This Method Is Virtually Undetectable

The aligners are made of a clear acrylic material, meaning they are nearly invisible to others. This allows you to stay confident in your appearance throughout the straightening process. This is a great option for adult patients who want to correct their smiles. Traditional braces may cause feelings of self-consciousness for adults because it can disrupt their appearance. With our discreet method, you can feel at-ease knowing you can straighten your teeth without bothersome metal brackets and colorful bands getting in the way of your smile. You can wear your trays to special events, work, and other occasions without the worry of other people noticing.
