Invisalign® Clear Aligners in Nixa, MO

Are you looking for an alternative to braces? Dr. Todd Anderson provides Invisalign® clear aligners in Nixa, MO, to straighten your teeth more discreetly.

What Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that relies on clear, custom-made plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, this treatment does not require metal brackets or wires, giving you a nearly invisible option for improving your smile. Invisalign treatment can correct all the same issues as braces, including:

  • Crooked and misaligned teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Bad bites (overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, etc.)

How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?

Your Invisalign treatment starts with a consultation with our dentist. During this appointment we will evaluate your teeth and your oral health to determine if Invisalign clear aligners are a good option for you. If it is, we will then use a digital treatment plan to map out the tooth movements needed to properly align your smile and create a series of clear plastic aligners. Each set of aligners will make small changes to the positions of your teeth, so that they will gradually move into their optimal positions as you switch to new sets of aligners.

You should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. Wearing your aligners regularly is key to keeping your smile progressing as planned. You will also need to visit Absolute Dental Care regularly throughout your treatment so that our dentist and team can monitor your smile and ensure that your treatment stays on track.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign clear aligners offer many benefits, such as:

  • A minimally invasive option – your aligners are designed to have as little impact on your lifestyle as possible. You can even remove them to eat and drink normally!
  • A nearly invisible treatment – the aligners are made from clear plastic, making them much more discreet. We do recommend that you clean them regularly to ensure that they do not become dirty or stained and cause your teeth to appear discolored.
  • Easier oral hygiene during treatment – the removable aligners allow you to brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent problems like cavities and gum disease.
  • A more comfortable overall experience – your aligners fit perfectly because they are made from clear plastic using advanced imaging technologies. There are also no wires or brackets to poke your mouth.
