Summer is the perfect time of year for launching an orthodontic smile transformation. As such, we want you to know that if you are an adult living with crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth, we have two easy ways to remedy your smile situation. Neither one involves metal braces. As it happens, at our Lenexa, KS dentist’s office, we offer both Invisalign and ClearCorrect clear aligners treatment systems. We’ll be telling you about each of them in today’s post. So, keep reading and then be sure to call us at 913-251-9683 to request your clear aligners consultation at Pierce & Knight Family Dentistry.

What Makes Them Invisible Braces?

Braces of the ordinary variety are anything but discreet. By contrast, these clear aligners systems offer a much more subtle route to a better smile. Since they are transparent, you can wear them without drawing more attention to your mouth, but they do get the job done in the end. This is a big benefit for many of our patients. With Invisalign or ClearCorrect, you can feel comfortable and confident wearing your aligners in professional and social situations.

Can They Help Someone Like Me?

We hope so! Every mouth is unique, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to dentistry. But all in all, clear aligners are a good option for patients with mild or moderate alignment issues. Many of our patients tend to fall into these categories, and clear aligners have been proven to fix a number of alignment problems, including: crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, crowded teeth, open bites, crossbites, underbites, overbites, and the like.

Are Clear Aligners A Popular Choice?

Yes! Mainly these two treatments are popular choices because there are some real benefits that both Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer when compared to conventional braces.

They aren’t permanently affixed. You can take them out whenever it makes sense. Anyone with classic braces will be tied to their hardware without any breaks for 2-3 long years. But not you! You see, with Invisalign and ClearCorrect, you can enjoy those breaks and take a little time off part of every day. So long as you are wearing them most of the time, you’ll be able to stay on schedule.

Another advantage is that with clear aligners you can eat whatever you want whenever you want. Since there aren’t any wires or brackets to trap food, there won’t be any dietary restrictions or special tools for cleaning. For maintenance, you can rinse out your aligners under warm water while you continue to brush and floss as always.

You also won’t have to see an orthodontist for in-office adjustments every month. Instead you will be responsible for switching out your aligners at home every few weeks until the process wraps up in 12 months or so.

These are just a few of the reasons we think you will love your alternative orthodontic solutions as much as we do. Like we said, summer is a grea time to begin such a journey. So, what are you waiting for?
