What You Should Know About Invisalign

Dealing with a crooked or misaligned smile not only impacts the aesthetics of your smile but the functionality. If your teeth are overlapped, it can be difficult to fully clean them, leaving them at risk of being exposed to built-up plaque and tartar, which causes disease and decay. Straightening your smile can make it easier to clean and can help with aesthetics. Dr. Bill Busch, Dr. Tucker Vanyperen, and Dr. Caitlyn Hall at NKC Dental in Northern Kansas City, MO, can explain how Invisalign can discreetly straighten and improve your smile.

Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign

Invisalign is a system that uses clear aligners to help gently push your teeth into their proper positions. This helps straighten your smile and can improve your confidence and make you want to show your smile off. You’ll switch to a new aligner every few weeks to help move your progress along. You will also be visiting your dentist in Northern Kansas City, MO, every six weeks to ensure that Invisalign is helping as planned and so any adjustments can be made.

During your treatment, you’ll be expected to wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day, only taking them out to brush, floss, eat, and drink. You can even wear your aligners to bed, making it that easy to straighten your teeth. Treatment time will vary for each person, depending on the severity of their issues, but can average anywhere from 9 to 15 months.

Since Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners, it’ll be practically invisible, and you won’t have to worry about restricting any foods. Once treatment is over, you’ll have a beautiful, straightened smile that is functional and aesthetic.
