Invisalign Clear Braces in Manchester, MO

Do you find yourself hiding your smile and feeling too self-conscious to laugh with abandon? Did you miss out on orthodontics as a kid? Perhaps, you wanted braces at some point but were put off by the metal and wires.

If your smile isn’t as straight as you would like it to be, your Manchester, MO dentist, Dr. James Stanford, wants to help you. He wants to uncover your best smile and encourage you to laugh with confidence again—maybe for the first time in years. He has already assisted countless patients locally and in outlying areas. Now, it’s your turn.  

At Stanford Dental, we offer Invisalign, the clear alternative to metal and wire braces.

Invisalign in Manchester, MO for Older Teens and Adults

It’s never too late to bring your teeth in line, and doing so may contribute to the longevity of your oral health. This is true for older teens and adults.

Crooked and misaligned teeth mean an uneven bite ratio—individual teeth are counted on to do most of the chewing. This leads to uneven wear, which may mean cavities, tooth sensitivity, and even breakage down the road. Straight teeth are also easier to clean.

Invisalign in Manchester, MO is a discreet way to bring your teeth in line without spending a year or more in bulky metal braces that weigh down your smile. And it all starts with a friendly exam and a smile chat with our warm and friendly Invisalign dentist. 

Your Smile Journey with Invisalign

During your initial exam, Dr. Stanford examines your teeth and gums to make sure Invisalign is the right option to bring your teeth into position. If Invisalign is right for you, we take impressions of your smile, and these are used to create your Invisalign custom aligners.

These clear aligners are virtually invisible and designed to straighten your teeth comfortably. Invisalign in Manchester, MO corrects the following mild to moderate smile issues:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Every few weeks, you change to a new aligner to gradually move your teeth into position. Dr. Stanford will tell you how often to wear your Invisalign aligners and for how long. The good news is that you can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth and when eating and drinking. This is not true with traditional metal and bracket braces.

After Invisalign

Once your teeth are in the proper position, Dr. Stanford fits you with a custom retainer; this trains your teeth to stay in place; it tells your teeth that upright, uniform, and beautiful is their new normal.

As with your Invisalign aligners, your Invisalign dentist will tell you how long to wear your retainer and how often.
