UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

We hope that you, your families, and friends are staying safe at this time. As most of you are aware, my Dental Practice operates on a 6-month interval with regards to your ongoing regular Check-up and Cleaning appointments. We were forced to shut down last spring in late March and throughout April on the recommendation from the CDC and local government entities to help curb the spread of COVID-19. We are now entering the 6-month point (April to October) that will impact our scheduling. That being said, over the next few weeks we will have limited days that we will be scheduling appointments. Of course, emergencies will be treated as soon as possible. Upon calling the office (816-229-1433) we do encourage you to leave your name, number, and a message so that we may accommodate your Dental needs.

Whether you are a long-term member of our patient Family, looking for a new Dental Team, or experiencing a more urgent issue, please know that you are important to us!

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all continue to work through the impacts of these issues.

Invisalign

Crooked teeth are unsightly and difficult to clean properly, but traditional braces can be uncomfortable and embarrassing to wear.

Fortunately, Dr. Matthew Turner can provide patients of all ages in the Kansas City, MO, area with the discreet Invisalign® system.

Why are so many patients choosing Invisalign over metal braces?

The Benefits of Invisalign

Discretion

Invisalign aligners are crafted from clear BPA-free plastic. Most people will not even notice you are wearing them.

Comfort

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.

Convenience

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.

Speedy Results

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.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic solution that uses a series of customized aligners made from BPA-free plastic to gradually (and discreetly) correct minor to moderate dental misalignment. This cosmetic treatment is virtually invisible and is suitable for both teens and adults looking for an inconspicuous alternative to fixed braces. While braces require bonding brackets and wires to the front surface of your teeth, Invisalign aligners are clear and form-fitting, yet easily removable. During a consultation, Dr. Turner can determine if this treatment is right for you.

This solution is customized to achieve a precise fit within your smile.

How Does Invisalign Work? A Treatment Timeline

Straightening your smile with Invisalign requires wearing your mouthpieces 20 to 22 hours a day and attending periodic checkups. When you choose to undergo Invisalign treatment provided by our Kansas City, it all begins with a consultation:

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our office near Kansas City, we will take digital scans of your smile with our advanced iTero scanner. We will then utilize a computer program to develop a custom plan for you that will result in proper alignment. Dr. Turner will tell you approximately how many clear aligners you will receive over the course of your Invisalign treatment and how long it will take.

Aligner Fabrication

We will send your scans to an official Invisalign lab where dental technicians will precisely craft your custom aligners. Once your first set of aligners is ready, you will return to our office to pick them up. 

Wearing Your Aligners

After your first two appointments, you will return to our office near Kansas City every six weeks to pick up new sets of aligners. You will wear each set of trays for approximately two weeks. You should wear your aligners for about 22 hours a day, only removing them for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As you graduate from one set of aligners to the next, they will gradually shift your teeth into alignment.

Smile!

The number of aligners and the duration of this orthodontic treatment varies from case to case based on the severity of the misalignment. At the end of your unique Invisalign treatment plan, you will have a straighter, healthier smile that you can confidently share with the world. You can maintain your results by wearing your last set of aligners as a retainer.

Other Invisalign Options

In addition to traditional Invisalign, our Kansas City dentist also offers Invisalign Teen and Invisalign Express. With Invisalign Teen, the clear aligners have a blue indicator dot to help patients know they are using the trays properly. When the dots fade, it's time to begin wearing the next aligners in the series. In case aligners are lost, this orthodontic treatment includes six extra replacement trays.

For patients with minimal crowding or spacing issues, Invisalign Express can deliver results in about six months or less.

Am I Too Old for Invisalign?

Absolutely not! No one is ever too old for orthodontics, and Invisalign is often a better option for working adults than braces because the clear aligners are discreet and removable. At our Blue Springs dental practice near Kansas City, MO, Dr. Turner has treated patients of all ages with the Invisalign system, even adults well beyond retirement age. We firmly believe that it is never too late to work towards a healthier, more beautiful smile.

Invisalign Cost

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.

The Oral Health Benefits of Orthodontics

Our Kansas City dentist recommends this solution 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.
