Invisible Braces for the Smile of Your Dreams
What are invisible braces? They are a series of plastic trays that are made to specific measurements in order to move your teeth, over time, into their desired position. At Olathe Dental Care Center, we use the SureSmile aligner system to help our patients achieve the smile of their dreams.
Why invisible braces? There are several advantages over traditional metal braces. The most obvious one is that they are virtually invisible when worn. No more “metal mouth!” They are also removable. This allows the wearer to remove them for cleaning or when eating the types of crunchy or sticky foods that those with metal braces have to give up. They are also far more comfortable than traditional braces, since they do not involve metal parts being attached to your teeth, or wires or rubber bands getting in your way.
How does SureSmile Aligner work?
- We create a 3-D model of your teeth using our specialized equipment. This allows your provider to analyze your bite from every possible angle.
- With this model, and our state-of-the-art software, we are able to create a treatment plan that is customized just for you. We calculate the desired movement of each tooth with unparalleled precision.
- Your provider determines a treatment plan which is optimized for your specific needs.
- Finally, your aligners are custom made using industry leading clear Essix plastic materials.
You may have seen advertisements for home-based invisible braces that can be purchased through a “club” or other supposedly lower-cost alternative. But don’t be fooled! Many patients have reported serious problems with these types of products. It’s important that your dental provider, who knows your oral health history and is familiar with your mouth and teeth, is responsible for creating and executing your treatment plan. When you choose Olathe Dental Care Center for your invisible braces, you have peace of mind in knowing that you are in the hands of a trained professional who has your best interests at heart.
