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.

Quickly Straighten Your Crooked Teeth with Invisalign® Express

Invisalign​ ​Express​ ​offers​ ​patients​ ​the ability to​ ​address​ ​minor​ ​imperfections while enjoying​ ​all​ ​the​ ​benefits​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Invisalign ​system​ ​in​ ​a much​ ​shorter​ ​time period.​ ​Dr.​ ​Matthew Turner​ ​can​ ​help​ ​patients​ ​achieve​ ​their ideal​ ​smile​ ​with​ ​10​ ​sets​ ​of​ ​aligners​ ​or​ ​fewer in approximately three months at our Blue Springs, MO, practice. The length of your treatment timeline will depend on your unique issues; patients with more complex misalignment issues may see greater benefit from traditional Invisalign treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Turner will evaluate your concerns and provide you with an estimate on your treatment timeline so you have a better understanding of what to expect.

Invisalign Express can help patients with minor misalignment issues to straighten their smiles in approximately three months. 

Invisalign Express vs. Traditional Invisalign

Invisalign Express offers the same great benefits of Invisalign in a much shorter timeline. This revolutionary five-stage treatment typically includes around 10 aligners that can straighten teeth in about three months or less. Traditional Invisalign usually includes at least 20 to 30 aligners and can take up to a year or more.

Just as with traditional Invisalign, your aligners are clear and virtually invisible and should be worn 20 to 22 hours a day for two weeks at a time before progressing to the next aligner in the series. At the end of your treatment, you will be given a retainer to help you maintain your results.

Invisalign  Express Options

Invisalign Express offers two different options for patients looking for a more streamlined timeline to correct their crooked teeth.

  • Invisalign Express 5: This treatment system includes five sets of aligners and is typically recommended for individuals with slight spacing and overlapping issues, or those who previously had orthodontics but failed to wear their retainers and are experiencing alignment issues. Patients can usually achieve results in about two to three months.
  • Invisalign Express 10: While this system includes twice as many aligners as Invisalign Express 5, you can achieve results in about five to six months, as aligners are switched out every two weeks. Invisalign Express 10 is beneficial for those who have more complex misalignment issues, but which are not quite severe enough for traditional Invisalign.

Invisalign Express offers the same great benefits of Invisalign in a much shorter timeline.

Who Is Invisalign Express for?

Although Invisalign Express is limited in its capabilities, it is beneficial for certain patients with minor aesthetic concerns and can be used to fix small issues after prior orthodontics if retainers were not properly or consistently worn. Invisalign Express candidates include patients who:

  • Have slight rotation of teeth
  • Need expansion in their upper or lower teeth (1.5 mm or less)
  • Have minor crowding or spacing (2 mm or less)
  • Need minor midline corrections (2 mm or less)
  • Only require partial treatment
  • Desire to correct crooked teeth quickly 

How to Maintain Your Results

After your Invisalign Express treatment is completed, you will be given a retainer to wear. It is imperative that this be worn as directed or your teeth will begin to move out of alignment. Most patients will be encouraged to wear this every day for at least the first three to six months, removing it only for eating and drinking, so as to give your jawbone time to stabilize. You can then switch to wearing it only at night. If at any point your retainer starts to feel tighter, you may want to begin wearing it during the day again to prevent orthodontic retreatment.
