Crooked teeth, gaps in your smile, or misaligned bite? If you need braces but aren’t interested in the traditional bracket-and-wire systems, we have a clear alternative—Invisalign®! Using a series of clear aligners, we offer Invisalign in Lee’s Summit, MO & Shawnee, KS to discreetly straighten crooked teeth. These aligners look like transparent retainers that fit snuggly over your teeth. With simple removal, you can continue to eat your favorite foods and maintain your normal hygiene routine with ease. Best of all, you’ll be able to achieve an attractive, healthy smile without the discomfort of traditional braces and without friends and family even noticing!
Invisalign can transform how your smile looks by giving you beautiful, straight teeth. This has numerous benefits beyond cosmetic improvements, though. Crooked teeth increase the risk that bacterial plaque from food debris becomes trapped between the crevices of teeth. This plaque, if it hardens into tartar, can cause cavities and lead to the development of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease.
Crooked teeth can also cause bite issues, teeth grinding and clenching, and TMJ and jaw pain. Straight teeth make it possible for you to properly brush and floss your teeth. You’ll discover that your oral hygiene routine will become easier and have better results. Similarly, aligned teeth will improve how your teeth fit together, helping to resolve functional problems associated with crooked teeth and a bad bite (malocclusion). Overall, Invisalign treatment from our experienced dentist in Lee’s Summit, MO & Shawnee, KS will improve the health and function of your smile, in addition to providing natural smile aesthetics and a boost to your confidence!
Our Lee’s Summit, MO & Shawnee, KS dentist is trained and certified in Invisalign and will monitor your treatment to ensure you receive the beautiful and functional results you want. We know the cost of your orthodontics treatment may be the first concern you have which is why we accept major insurance companies and we even offer third-party financing solutions for your convenience.
Your treatment begins with a consultation with our Invisalign dentist to verify your candidacy and current oral health. Virtually all patients are candidates for Invisalign if complex bite problems aren’t present. Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth that will be used to create your series of custom clear aligners. You’ll need to wear these aligners for 20-22 hours each day, though you can remove them to eat and drink as well as to brush and floss your teeth. As you progress through the series of aligners, you’ll notice your teeth slowly moving into place, soon to reveal your beautiful, straight smile. Your attractive new smile will help you feel more confident and live healthier long-term!
