Invisalign Clear Braces

Have you considered invisible braces in Topeka, KS?

If your teeth aren’t as straight as you’d like them to be, or if you had braces in your teenage years and are experiencing a relapse, we can help.

Your cosmetic dentists, Dr. Carrie Peterson and Dr. Ben Rutherford, can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted (and boost your confidence).

We use Invisalign at our Topeka dental office and may offer other alternatives down the road. Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that slowly and gently correct your teeth.

Are Invisible Clear Braces in Topeka Right for You?

At Topeka Dentistry, our orthodontic professionals will examine your teeth and gums, take digital x-rays, and go over your smile goals. Together, we will see if Invisalign is the right option for you.

How Does Invisalign Work?

After your initial dental examination, we will take digital impressions of your teeth—you don’t have to worry about goopy material—and make a 3-D model that will create your new clear aligners.

The aligners come as a series; each one will be work for a few weeks and will slowly adjust your teeth. After that set is over, you can switch to a new aligner. This process allows your teeth to align correctly in a comfortable and gradual timeline.

The exciting part is that you can see your teeth visibly change every time you move through a series of aligners.

For the aligners to work, it’s essential to wear them for 22 hours every day. Topeka patients can take their aligners out to brush, floss, eat, drink, or enjoy a night out.

What Can Invisalign Clear Braces Fix?

Clear aligners in Topeka, KS may correct:

  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

After your treatment is complete, your dentist at Topeka Dentistry will fabricate a custom retainer that prevents your newly aligned teeth from relapsing.

The Benefits of Clear Aligners

Traditional metal braces can be noticeable and uncomfortable. Invisible clear aligners are discreet and comfortable. Patients don’t have to worry about brackets, wires, or metal to detract from their smiles. Metal braces can make people feel embarrassed or less confident among friends or in a professional setting.

Traditional braces require regular visits to your dentist, whereas Invisalign braces don’t need frequent dental appointments.

Clear braces can be removed before you eat and drink, so you never have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces.

Brushing and flossing are easier to do when you don’t have to navigate around brackets and wires.
