Most people desire and deserve a perfect smile, but sometimes the process of achieving this can be off-putting. To some, getting adult braces seems juvenile and even embarrassing. Thankfully, through modern dental advances, traditional metal braces are not the only option. Now you can choose clear aligners; transparent, plastic alternatives to metal braces. At McKnight Signature Dental, we help patients get Invisalign treatment around Leawood, KS.
What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign uses clear orthodontic aligner trays to move and straighten your teeth. This process is gentle and is perfect for mild to moderate cosmetic purposes. Aligners can help address issues like crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Unlike the traditional metal braces, many adults recognize from growing up, clear aligners don’t use a wire and bracket system that often irritate the mouth. Instead, because the aligners are clear plastic, it’s easy to remove them, and they don’t annoy the gums or cheeks.
Invisalign aligners are much less noticeable than metal braces, allowing the patient to feel more confident in public and at work.
Your dentist will make a series of aligners that will gently move your smile into place. The number of aligners depends on how misaligned teeth are. You can see the process of how your teeth will be shaped by looking at the aligners from the first one to the very last.
The process of Invisalign can depend on each patient, but the overall treatment time is often shorter than braces.
