Are you in love with the idea of straight teeth but hate the idea of braces? Few adults would be comfortable with the idea of a mouth full of wires and metal. This is why we at Chesterfield Family & Cosmetic Dental Center in Springfield, MO are happy to offer Invisalign to our patients.
Not a form of clear braces, Invisalign is something much better. It is a series of custom-made clear aligners crafted specifically to your needs. A special computer program takes the molds and measurements of your mouth and then designs a series of clear aligners that will slowly, comfortably and effectively realign your teeth into a much more functional and attractive position.
The way it works is quite simple – you wear the aligner for two to four weeks, visit our office for a checkup, and then switch to the next aligner in the series. For some patients, it can be a matter of a single set of aligners and their teeth are perfectly straight. For some it could take a few sets before everything is adjusted. Most see final results in six months to two years.
The best part of Invisalign is that it is a type of orthodontics that remains entirely covert and undetected. Almost no one will be able to see that you are having this form of cosmetic dentistry or wearing clear aligners. They pop out easily for eating, drinking and oral hygiene. You need only clean them each day and wear them while you work, workout, speak, and sleep.
As your dentist in Springfield, MO, we must first be sure you are a good candidate for Invisalign. This means that your teeth can need only mild to moderate alignment and should be in good health. If so, we can make your molds and begin the process of giving you the improved bite and flawless alignment that makes for a picture perfect smile.
If you are not a candidate for this treatment, we can suggest traditional braces or even alternatives like veneers.
