Orthodontics in Springfield, MO

Orthodontics deals with the diagnosis, prevention, correction, and guidance of dental irregularities or malocclusion. Most of us face several teeth misalignment issues, such as crowded and jutting teeth, gaps between teeth, or crooked teeth that can significantly affect your bite and oral health. Orthodontic treatments provide a healthy bite and straight teeth, making it easier for you to bite, chew and speak clearly. It is a cosmetic and restorative treatment that improves mouth functions and enhances your smile appearance. At iTooth Family Dentistry, we offer Invisalign treatments to treat your malocclusion (teeth misalignment). 

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic aligner that resembles a mouthguard and is made from transparent plastic material. It can help both adults and teens alike, is custom-made, and functions to perfectly align your teeth over time. The advanced technology used in Invisalign can treat any malocclusion like overbite, underbite, overcrowding, the gap between teeth, etc. And due to its transparent nature, it is barely noticeable.

Why Is Invisalign a Better Option than Braces? 

  • Invisalign is more flexible than metal braces. Unlike braces, they can be taken off while eating, which gives you the help of eating comfortably. This also enables proper cleaning of the teeth and maintaining oral hygiene.
  • It is made from transparent plastic material, eliminating the chances of sustaining oral injuries in your mouth. Also, it becomes difficult for others to notice if you are wearing an orthodontic aligner.
  • It is more convenient as fewer dental appointments are required, and the time taken by Invisalign to perfectly align your teeth is much less compared to braces.
  • It does not hamper your everyday activities, like speaking and eating or brushing, which otherwise becomes difficult with braces.

What Is the Invisalign procedure? 

We will diagnose your dental health during your first appointment and accordingly determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Next, we will take X-rays and scans to create an accurate model of your teeth and mouth and prepare a road map for your course. These scans are then sent to the laboratory, where your customized Invisalign trays are fabricated.

Once they are ready, we will place them on your teeth and check if the aligners fit you well. After everything is satisfactory, we will provide you with all the necessary usage guidelines, a follow-up consultation schedule, the duration of wearing the aligners, its care, and maintenance.
