Why Invisalign in St. Louis?
When your teeth are aligned, they tend to harbor fewer bacteria because they’re easier for you to clean. We see the results from Invisalign every day. Better oral hygiene decreases your risk of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and your gums may support your teeth better when they aren’t overlapping, too. You can also decrease the risks of:
Clear aligners and braces can even relieve abnormal stress put on your jaw from misaligned teeth. There are no wires or brackets, so you don’t need to change the way you brush and floss. And, you can continue to eat all your favorite foods.
What is Invisalign and is it Popular in the St. Louis Area?
Invisalign is a thin, clear aligner used in orthodontic treatment. The aligner is made from a flexible thermoplastic material. According to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), Invisalign is designed to make orthodontic treatment “less conspicuous.” Although not completely invisible, they do fit tightly over your teeth and are much less noticeable than the wires and brackets of traditional braces.
Invisalign treatment from Martin Dental & Associates can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
- Some types of bite issues:
- Diastema or gaps between teeth
- Crowded teeth
How Does Invisalign Work At Martin Dental & Associates?
Invisalign uses a series of aligners that are custom made for you and designed to gradually move teeth into their ideal position. The dentists at Martin Dental & Associates will make an impression and photographs of your teeth during the initial consultation. The results are sent to the lab and used to create a 3D projection of how your teeth can be moved incrementally. Our dentists work with the lab to form the basis of developing a personalized treatment plan designed to accomplish this movement. Once the treatment is approved and in line with your dental goals, the thermoplastic aligners are manufactured for each stage of the treatment process.
The aligners are comfortable, easy to clean, and removable. You take them out to eat, drink, and brush your teeth. You simply reinsert them to continue straightening. Wearing the aligners gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movement our dentists have mapped out. The average treatment time for Invisalign is about one year, provided you wear the aligners the recommended 20 to 22 hours a day. Call us today at 314-739-1222 for our Maryland Heights office, or 573-764-2425 for our Gerard location, or contact us online.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign At Martin Dental & Associates Over Traditional Braces?
There are a number of benefits to wearing Invisalign from Martin Dental & Associates to consider in St. Louis, including:
- Fewer Visits
- No Repairs Needed
- Easier Teeth Cleaning
One of the biggest reasons you may prefer Invisalign is that you don’t want the appearance of metal in your mouth. It appears a large number of teens, and recently even adults, feel this way. Invisalign could very well be the reason that the AAO is reporting a record number of patients over the age of 18 seeking orthodontic treatment. The staff at Martin Dental & Associates has noticed a marked increase the last few years in the St. Louis area, as well.
You can remove Invisalign at any time, enabling you to eat and drink what you love, to practice good hygiene, and to feel a bit more comfortable and unconfined while something is changing the alignment of your teeth.
Invisalign feels more like the texture of your actual teeth then metal brackets and wires do. Traditional braces can rub on your cheeks and gums, causing them to feel raw and have you walking around with a mouthful of wax. Many of our patients certainly prefer the at-home biweekly change in Invisalign to the thought of painful tightening of wires by an orthodontist.
Traditional braces require you to get your wires tightened by an orthodontist about every 6 weeks. That’s a lot of appointments. We love to see your smile at the Martin Dental & Associates offices, but we want to make it easier, and cheaper, for you. Call us at 314-739-1222 for our Maryland Heights location, or 573-764-2425 for our Gerard office, or contact us today.
Sometimes a bracket or wire becomes loose with traditional braces, which means yet another office visit. With Invisalign, if there happens to be damage, you can switch to the next one in your series. No worries.
When wearing traditional braces, removing food and plaque from around the brackets and at the gumline can be a lot of work. With Invisalign, you can simply remove the aligners and practice good oral hygiene the way you always do. Good oral hygiene is vital to the success of your treatment.
