Why Choose Clear Aligners Over Traditional Braces

Prairie Village, KS, dentist offers clear aligners

Having an uneven smile may cause you to feel self-conscious in your appearance and can even cause problems for your oral health. However, traditional metal braces may not be ideal for all patients. They can be irritating, highly visible, and the process can take several years to complete. Dr. Browne’s team in Prairie Village, KS, offers clear aligners that can straighten your teeth in less time. In today’s blog, we’ll explore the many advantages of this treatment option.

Feel Confident Throughout The Alignment Process

If you were unable to get braces as a child, it is not too late to finally correct your smile. However, it is understandable that the metal brackets and wires used for this method may not be the most desirable for adult patients. Our clear aligners are virtually indetectable to others and allow you to feel confident during your treatment process. These trays are made of a translucent acrylic that snuggly fit your smile. This may be a helpful option for working professionals who do not want to appear younger, or for patients who have special events coming up during the duration of their treatment. You won’t have to worry about pesky braces disrupting photos for special occasions like weddings, graduations, or more.

Transform Your Smile In Just One Year

Traditional braces or other clear aligner options can take over a year to complete. Depending on the severity of your concerns, this may take up to two years or more. This is because these orthodontic methods focus on shifting each tooth into the proper position. Patients who have less overcrowding or gapping problems may not want to go through several years of treatment to correct minor concerns. Instead, our rapid clear aligners will focus on shifting the most visible teeth in your smile. This allows us to correct your smile in a year or less. Your dentist will examine your oral cavity and determine if you are a good candidate for this option.

No Need For Brackets And Wires

The brackets and wires used for braces can often be uncomfortable for many patients. The wires may poke the inside of your mouth and can irritation, which can be frustrating. You will need to come in for adjustments every few weeks, which can be time consuming and can cause more discomfort as they are tightened. With clear aligners, the trays will be created to fit your smile snuggly. You can remove them during meals or when brushing your teeth, so you won’t have to worry about braces getting in your way.
