Traditional metal braces are a longstanding, effective method of correcting or preventing crooked teeth, which can spoil your smile and hide bacteria that cause periodontitis. While they’ve excelled in producing good results, they’ve been lacking in esthetic presentation and the entire orthodontics experience. Metal braces can be awkward to maintain, in addition to interfering with the mouth’s natural functioning. For teenagers and professionals conscious of their appearance, braces can be especially problematic. Invisalign has an impressive track record of straightening teeth, aligning top and bottom teeth for an improved bite and a wider airway for freer breathing, reducing bacteria—and giving the wearer the confidence to smile without worry. Invisalign offers all the same benefits as traditional metal braces without the appearance of braces. It works via clear aligners that make them virtually unnoticeable to most people! These clear aligners are constructed from sturdy plastic that fits over your teeth and gradually helps shift them back into their correct position. The aligners are custom-fitted to your teeth, so they will feel completely natural while staying firmly in place when you’re eating, speaking, or laughing. These clear aligners can also be used for teeth whitening—ask for details when you visit our Neosho, MO office!
