Could We Fix Misalignment With Clear Braces?

May 19, 2021

If you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth, you may feel embarrassed about your smile’s appearance. In addition, poor oral health could also occur. We can not only correct your uneven teeth, but also do so with a series of clear and barely noticeable aligners. In today’s blog, your Olathe, KS, dentists talk about our clear aligners.

The Oral Health Impacts of Uneven Teeth

Uneven teeth obviously have a major impact on the beauty of your smile, but the alignment issues could also lead to poor oral health. After all, uneven teeth are difficult to brush and floss, so food particles could remain trapped for bacteria to consume, a process that increases the risk of tooth decay and even gum disease. For others, poor bite balance due to uneven teeth could mean the onset of TMJ disorder and bruxism, both serious and painful oral health disorders. To protect your smile, you should seek treatment to correct your misaligned smile.

Crafting Clear Aligners

Patients are often happy to learn there is an option that doesn’t rely on metal brackets and wires. With clear braces, we instead use a series of aligners to shift the teeth and correct alignment, often in as little as one year for some patients. We start by examining your smile to assess the cause and severity of your misalignment. If we decide clear aligners are the best option for you, we will take detailed digital images and measurements, which we use to craft a 3D computer model. The model is essential in the design and fabrication of your custom plastic aligners!

The Treatment Process

The aligners will not only fit comfortably, but will be completely clear too. Which means your orthodontics are nearly invisible! Each set is work every day for about 20 to 22 hours. About once every two weeks, you will upgrade to the next set of aligners in the series we provided. Over the course of a year to 18 months, depending on the extent of your misalignment, these will correct the position of your teeth and help you enjoy optimal oral health! If you have any questions about employing an even smile with clear and cozy aligners, then please contact our team to schedule a consultation. We’re ready to help you and your family enjoy optimal oral health and beautiful smiles!
