The Invisible Way of Aligning Smiles with Invisalign Treatment

You feel self-conscious about your crooked teeth, but the thought of wearing traditional braces is holding you back. But you know what? You can skip the awkwardness and get a straighter smile with Invisalign from Absolute Dental Care in Nixa, Missouri. With our clear teeth aligners, you will straighten your smile without drawing much attention. 

What is Invisalign? 

Traditional braces use wires and brackets to bring your teeth into proper alignment. However, Invisalign uses clear aligners to straighten your smile. You will get a series of clear trays, which you will wear for the next 12 to 18 months, but most patients experience results a few weeks after commencing treatment. 

You might be mistaken that Invisalign is for mild cases, but with continued advancement in the Invisalign technology, we can correct challenging orthodontic concerns like:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbites
  • Overbites 

How does Invisalign work? 

Invisalign, also called adult braces, works by creating controlled pressure on your teeth. The treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. Todd Anderson, where he establishes if he can correct your orthodontic problems with Invisalign.

If he gives you the nod, we take precise 3D images of your mouth and use computer-aided software to simulate your treatment plan. Next, we send the digital images to a dental lab to create custom-designed trays for your teeth straightening. 

After a few weeks, your aligners will be ready, and your teeth straightening journey can begin. Every two weeks, you will swap your aligners with a new set that moves your teeth one step closer to proper alignment. 

Benefits of Invisalign 

If there is a cage match between Invisalign and braces, Invisalign will emerge as a clear winner because it offers unique advantages, such as:

  • It’s comfortable – no poking. No irritation. Just comfort.
  • It’s discreet – you don’t have to announce to the whole world when straightening your teeth.
  • Convenience – you can munch stringy or sticky foods without worrying about food getting stuck between your teeth. Clear braces are removable so that you can enjoy life’s treats without second thoughts.
  • Healthier – the retractable nature of clear aligners means you can brush and floss your teeth and wear them back when done.
