Misaligned, crooked, or overcrowded teeth can certainly weigh down your smile. The thought of perpetually wearing traditional metal brackets can weigh on your spirits as well! To effectively correct these issues in the shortest amount of time possible, the dental practice of John P. Goodman, D.D.S. offers innovative orthodontics treatments to our Kansas City, MO, patients. The goal is to give you the healthy smile you deserve through the safest, most effective means possible!
Sixth Month Smiles®
This orthodontics treatment - made available by our Kansas City dentist - is exactly as it sounds: a combination of traditional orthodontics, revolutionary techniques, and aesthetically-appealing materials to transform your smile in about six months. The six-month time period is significantly less than the 18 to 48 months that traditional braces may require! Through the use of tooth-colored traditional brackets and wires, Dr. Goodman will correct spaced, crooked, or crowded teeth. Six Month Smiles® is especially well-suited for adults and teens that do not require significant changes to their bite (porcelain veneers may be another alternative in such cases).
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional orthodontics that uses a series of clear, removable mouthpieces to correct misalignment. The timeline of treatment is comparable to that of metal braces, and Invisalign can provide the same results. Because the mouthpieces can be removed, there are no food restrictions, and you can brush and floss as normal.
