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?
Invisalign versus Braces
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.
Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign®
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.

How Does Invisalign Work? A Treatment Timeline
In most cases, Invisalign treatment can be completed in only 4 to 10 months.
Extra TraysIn case aligners are lost, this orthodontic treatment includes six additional replacement trays. Patients should make every effort to keep track of their trays, but knowing there are backups provides peace of mind for both the child and the parent.
Safe for SportsIs your child active or involved in contact sports? Invisalign is a much safer option than braces because there are no metal brackets that can harm the soft tissues of the mouth.
DiscretionAdolescents may be unwilling to get braces due to fear of being teased or self-consciousness about their appearance. Invisalign allows them to straighten their teeth without any of their friends or peers noticing.

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.
