Improving Silver Lake & Topeka Smiles with Invisalign
At our cosmetic restorative dentistry practice, we see plenty of adult patients who would love to change their smiles. In fact, our patients aren’t alone. As many as 50% of all Americans have at least one complaint about the aesthetic appearance of their teeth, and a common concern is a crooked smile.
Although adult patients want to correct overlapping or oddly spaced teeth, they don’t want to deal with chunky metal braces. That’s what teenagers wear, not professionals who have both work and social commitments. If this sounds familiar, and you’d like to straighten your teeth but are hesitant to wear traditional orthodontics, Thankfully, Dr. Michael Michel has good news. Our Silver Lake and Topeka locations are both happy to offer Invisalign.
Why Choose Invisalign?
This revolutionary orthodontic treatment provides straight teeth without the need for brackets or wires. Invisalign uses a clear aligner system to gradually move teeth into a more desirable position. In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign clear aligners offer several advantages over conventional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of a clear, BPA-free plastic. Treatment is almost undetectable giving you the freedom and confidence to smile. The Invisalign system is removable, so that brushing and flossing is easy, and cleaning the aligners is as easy as brushing and rinsing. You can take Invisalign aligners out when you eat, which means there are no food restrictions. Also, Invisalign’s smooth design eliminates the mouth sores and abrasions associated with metal in your mouth. And if all that wasn’t reason enough, Invisalign doesn’t require adjusting. Simply visit our office every 6-8 weeks to make sure your treatment is coming along as planned and to pick up your next set of aligners.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Dr. Michel will first take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to create a 3-D model. Dr. Michel uses this model to determine your personalized treatment plan and design your set of custom aligners. Once they arrive from the lab, you’ll make a quick visit to our Topeka or Silver Lake dental practice to check the fit. After that, simply wear your aligners as directed and watch as your teeth transform.
