Are you thinking about correcting problems with the alignment of your smile? If your teeth are unevenly spaced or crooked, improving your smile offers benefits beyond the cosmetic effect of uniformity. Teeth that are in the correct position can be much easier to clean. This means that by straightening your smile, you can prevent the future likelihood of cavities that degrade your oral health. If the idea of traditional braces seems too imposing on your appearance, we could offer an alternative solution with Invisalign clear aligners. These removable trays allow you to take them off when eating and brushing your teeth to serve your oral hygiene. With a translucent appearance, you can let others know about your decision to bring your teeth into position on your own terms.
At your Leawood, KS dental practice, we can tackle functional and cosmetic issues with malocclusion with the help of orthodontics. By creating a set of aligner trays that fit your unique smile, we can straighten your teeth in less time than traditional means. By learning the unique benefits of Invisalign, you can decide if this approach is best for you!
When Your Teeth Are Out Of Alignment
How do teeth develop problems with their spacing? For some, they simply grow crooked and do not meet evenly when you bite. This is usually due to issues with the growth and development of your jaw in childhood. You could also gradually push your teeth out of position with a regular thumb-sucking habit or by resting your tongue against your front teeth. No matter the initial cause, problems with your alignment can increase your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. When certain teeth take a disproportionate amount of your bite’s force, they can quickly erode their protective enamel. As you lose this layer, plaque can infect your dentin and accumulate cavities. By correcting the alignment of your smile with Invisalign, you can meter this risk and enjoy a healthy smile.
Creating Your New Set Of Aligners
When you visit our practice, we will measure your degree of misalignment to determine if you are a candidate for clear aligner treatment. Moving forward, we take images of your smile to create a digital impression model. We will show you how your smile will look after correction with special imaging software. To create your aligners, we send the model to a technician who will create a custom set of trays to bring your smile into position. You will wear each set over a series of weeks, moving on to the next set as your teeth gradually come into place.
