The idea of getting braces or any orthodontic treatment can seem overwhelming. Fortunately, at Kenworthy Orthodontics, we are passionate about turning the ‘overwhelming’ into a simple process. We understand how important it is to feel confident during orthodontic treatment, which is why we proudly offer Clear Aligners in Missoula to patients with less complex alignment or bite issues. We also use clear aligners in conjunction with traditional braces.

What are Clear Aligners?

Our primary goal at Kenworthy Orthodontics is to make sure you have a comfortable, successful treatment. One option we use to fix less comprehensive problems is clear aligners. Clear aligners are created to fit snuggly over your teeth (created using our latest 3D imaging software). These aligners gradually move your teeth into the proper position.

How It Works

The process of getting clear aligners is really quite simple. We start by providing patients with an initial consult, exam, and digital imaging. This gives Dr. Kenworthy a clear picture of whether or not you are a good candidate for clear aligners and how your teeth may move with this treatment. Once you decide to move forward with the plan, we can create your aligners right here in the office.

You will wear each set for 1-2 weeks and then move onto the next set. We recommend monitoring your treatment with appointments every 2-3 months. Your only job? Wear the aligners for 22-24 hours every day and practice good dental hygiene. Yep, that’s it!

Benefits of Clear Aligners

There really are no ‘cons’ when it comes to clear aligners. Of course, only you can make the final decision about whether or not it is the right option for you – but here are some benefits to consider:

  • Discreet. Clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them a discreet orthodontic treatment option.
  • Comfortable. Clear aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over the teeth, offering a comfortable and irritation-free orthodontic experience.
  • Removable. The aligners are removable, allowing patients to easily take them out for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. This flexibility gives our patients control over their treatment.
  • Predictable. This treatment utilizes advanced 3D imaging technology to create a personalized treatment plan, allowing patients to visualize their final results before treatment begins.
  • Fewer Office Visits. Compared to traditional braces, clear aligners typically require fewer office visits for adjustments, reducing inconvenience and allowing patients to spend less time in the orthodontist’s chair.
  • Effective. Clear aligners can effectively treat a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
  • Improved Comfort and Speech. Unlike metal braces, clear aligners have smooth, comfortable edges that minimize irritation to the cheeks and gums. Additionally, patients experience less speech impediment compared to traditional braces.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics. Clear aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic material, providing a seamless and natural appearance that allows patients to smile confidently throughout treatment.

Overall, clear alignment treatments offer a comfortable, convenient, and discreet orthodontic solution for patients seeking to achieve a straighter, healthier smile.
