Invisalign for Straight Teeth in Topeka, KS

April 25, 2015

If you’re an adult and you think you’re stuck with the smile you have, then think again. At Michel Dental in Topeka, KS, we have changed—and by changed we mean improved—the smiles of many adults. One common complaint is crooked teeth. But as an adult you may not want to be bothered by the appearance or the feeling of having a mouthful of metal in your mouth. Fortunately, Dr. Michael Michel offers Invisalign®. With this orthodontic treatment, you can have braces that almost no one will notice.

Invisalign, as the name suggests, straightens teeth practically invisibly. This system uses clear BPA-free plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. The plastic is smooth and comfortable, not like the brackets and wires of traditional braces that can cause gum and soft tissue abrasions. In addition, these clear aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink the foods you love and brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. And with Invisalign, fewer appointments in the office are required, so you don’t need to adjust your busy schedule all that much in order to have a straight smile.

The Invisalign Treatment

The path to straight teeth begins with impressions, photos and x-rays of your existing smile. From these, the Invisalign lab creates a 3-D representation of your teeth, which Dr. Michel uses to create a treatment plan. This plan shows you how your teeth will move and shows the Invisalign lab how to produce your aligners. These will arrive in our office in a series of sets. You’ll wear each set for approximately two weeks and then move on to the next. As time passes, your teeth will move into their proper position and your smile will become straighter and straighter. After 12 to 18 months, you’ll have the straight smile you didn’t think you’d ever have.

Invisalign works through a series of aligning trays, and each tray sits nearly invisibly on your smile. The trays are custom made to fit your mouth, and each tray signifies a different step in your straightening process. After wearing one aligning tray for a certain amount of time, simply switch to the next tray in the series to continue your treatment! Simple and discreet, Invisalign is a great option for teens and adults alike.

Another great benefit to Invisalign is the fact that you are not restricted to any foods or drinks. Being able to eat what you want is a benefit, as you will not have to pick food out of your wires and brackets as you would with traditional braces. Also, you are able to have better overall oral care when using Invisalign. Any time you need to brush, drink, floss, or eat, simply remove the tray and reapply when necessary. Because we will make impressions of your smile, and because each aligning tray is custom made to fit your mouth perfectly, your treatment as personalized as ever.
