If you are like one-third of adults, you do not like how your smile looks. Often, the biggest complaint involves alignment issues. When you live with gaps, overcrowding, or rotated teeth, it is easy to feel insecure about your appearance. Although you have considered orthodontics in the past, you do not want to add to your self-esteem issues with metal wires and brackets. Now, you have an alternative to traditional braces. You can get the straight, healthy smile you have always wanted using a nearly invisible solution. With Invisalign in Topeka, you will remain confident throughout your treatment while getting the results you want.


Invisalign is far different than traditional orthodontic treatments, which uses wires and brackets to pull the teeth into their correct position. Invisalign uses a different concept. The FDA-approved treatment consists of a series of custom-made, clear aligners.

You wear them over your teeth to gradually reposition them. Since the aligners are clear, no one will be able to tell that you are wearing them. In addition, they are removable so you will not have to deal with the restrictions that are typically associated with braces.

Oral hygiene is easy because there are no brackets or wires to clean around. You can still enjoy your favorite foods because you just remove them when eating or drinking. Best of all, you will have the results you want in less time. On average, it only takes about 12 months to complete your treatment.

Enjoy an Alternative Approach

After an initial consultation with your dentist in Topeka, a customized treatment plan is created. Impressions and 3D images are used to create a roadmap for the movement of your teeth. You will be able to see what your new smile will look like prior to even getting started.

Once your custom-made aligners are ready, you will wear each one in the series for about a week. You can switch to the next one at home. As a result, you will enjoy less trips to the dentist and you do not need to have adjustments made. However, you will still need to schedule a visit every few weeks so your dentist can monitor the movement of your teeth. After you complete the series of aligners, you will require a retainer for a short period of time to ensure your teeth stay in their new positions.
