People of all ages are making the decision to straighten their smiles. But many people associate the appearance of metal braces with the junior high and high school years, and many adults and even some teens may want people to focus on them in work and social situations and not on their dental work. If this is the case for you, why not talk to our dentist about our clear aligners? They are made from a clear plastic material and fit snugly against your teeth so no one but you and Dr. Holden Correll will know that you are wearing them. The aligners are easy to remove when you are ready for a meal or a snack, so you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods without worrying about damaging them. You can clean your aligners using a toothbrush and toothpaste, or the cleaner that Dr. Correll can give you designed especially for your dental work.
After taking digital impressions of your teeth, your aligners will be designed specifically for your smile. You will receive a series of aligners, which are usually worn for about two weeks before they are switched out for a new set. Over time, your teeth will move into their new positions. Your clear aligners can move even more your teeth vertically and rotate them to create the healthy smile. If you would like to learn more about clear aligners in Topeka, Kansas and find out if they are right for you, call our office today at 785-271-7477.
