An Alternative to Conventional Braces

An Alternative to Conventional Braces - Kansas City - Weber Orthodontics

At Weber Orthodontics, your local Kansas City Invisalign office, Dr. Ashlee Weber and her team are dedicated to providing patients with outstanding personalized services in a comfortable and stress-free environment. We offer a wide range of orthodontic treatment options for patients of all ages including the innovative Invisalign System for teens and adults.

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign System straightens teeth without wires and brackets. Using 3D graphics, a series of clear, customized, removable aligners are created just for you that will gradually move your teeth into place. Each of these aligners is calibrated with precision and created to optimally fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan prescribed by Dr. Weber. You wear each aligner for about two weeks. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position until the final prescribed alignment is attained.

Advantages of Invisalign®

Because the Invisalign aligners are removable, you are able to take them out when eating, brushing and flossing. This allows you to enjoy the foods you love while keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy throughout the treatment process. When traditional metal braces are worn, foods you eat can easily become trapped in the brackets and wires. It’s also challenging to brush and floss your teeth when metal braces are worn which increases the risk of developing cavities or gum disease during treatment. But when you wear Invisalign, you simply take the aligners out, brush and floss as you normally do and then slip them back in when done.

Invisalign® Allows You to Smile with Confidence Throughout Treatment

When metal braces are worn, it’s common to feel self-conscious – so you try to hide your smile. But with Invisalign, the aligners are clear and nearly undetectable. This allows you to feel good about your appearance throughout the treatment process so you can smile with complete confidence. Since the aligners are transparent, most people won’t even notice you are straightening your teeth!

Invisalign® Teen – Perfect for Your Teen’s Active Lifestyle

Invisalign Teen is very similar to Invisalign for adults. A series of clear, customized aligners are made for your teen using advanced 3D technology. The Invisalign Teen aligners feature a “Blue Dot” wear indicator on each aligner which is designed to tell your teen when it’s time to switch to a new set of aligners. Your teen is provided with six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken. Invisalign Teen clear aligners are durable and comfortable to fit well into your teen’s active lifestyle. Plus, your teenager can eat all those foods he or she loves as the aligners can simply be taken out while eating and then put back in when done.
