What Is Invisalign?
A Discreet Way
to Straighten Your Teeth
Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that uses a series of customized aligners made from BPA-free plastic to gradually correct minor to moderate dental misalignment. While braces require bonding brackets and wires to the front surface of your teeth, Invisalign is clear, form-fitting, and easily removable.
Invisalign vs. Braces How You Can Benefit From Invisalign Treatment
DiscretionInvisalign aligners are crafted from clear BPA-free plastic. Most people will not even notice you are wearing them, making them easy to fit in with any lifestyle.
Invisalign offers a more comfortable orthodontic solution than traditional metal braces that use brackets, wires, and rubber bands. Traditional braces require frequent and sometimes painful adjustments. Invisalign aligners apply gentle force to your teeth with minimal discomfort and require less frequent visits to our office.
Because the clear aligners are removable, they offer more convenience than braces. There are no “off-limits” foods to get stuck in the brackets, such as caramel, taffy, or popcorn. Being able to remove the trays also makes cleaning and caring for your smile much simpler.
Invisalign treatment can sometimes be completed in half the time of traditional orthodontics. Most Invisalign treatment plans straighten teeth within six to 12 months, or even shorter time periods during express treatment. Traditional orthodontics can take two years or more.

My family has been going to Dr. Turner for over 25 years. Initially, when one of my kids had her first appointment she was super scared. Dr. Turner sat with her and talked to her for the first half dozen appointments before she would let him look at her teeth! He was so patient and kind... I do not go to any other provider.View on Google

The Oral Health Benefits of Orthodontics
Our Kansas City dentist recommends orthodontics to patients with dental misalignment not just because it provides a cosmetic improvement, but also because it improves your oral health.
When teeth overlap or are crooked, food and plaque can become easily trapped, increasing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. On the other hand, when teeth are properly positioned, it makes brushing and flossing more efficient and results in better oral function.
Keep Your Teeth and Aligners Clean How To Care for Your Invisalign Trays
Maintain Good Oral Hygiene
You should continue to brush your teeth twice daily and floss once daily to maintain the health of your teeth and gums. Tooth decay, gingivitis, and other dental problems could delay treatment and affect your results.
Clean Your Aligners
The best way to clean your Invisalign trays is with the Invisalign cleaning system. However, denture cleaner is also a great alternative. Avoid hard-bristled toothbrushes and using toothpaste because they can scratch and cloud your aligners, making them more visible while wearing.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Because your aligners are made of plastic, extreme hot and cold temperatures can warp their shape and cause a delay in treatment.
Keep Your Aligners Safe
Always put your aligners in a safe place where they cannot be lost or damaged.
The cost of orthodontics varies from case to case based on the severity of the misalignment. In general, treatment with the Invisalign system at our Kansas City practice costs somewhere between $3,750 and $4,500.
Today, many insurance plans will contribute to the cost of this treatment. However, if your plan does not cover this solution, or if you are uninsured, our dentist partners with CareCredit® to make it affordable. CareCredit is a healthcare lender offering low-interest and interest-free payment plans. With this financing, patients can achieve a straighter smile for as low as $160 a month.
If you have questions about the cost of orthodontics, we encourage you to give our office a call. We will do everything we can to make Invisalign a fit for your budget.
