Do you wish that you had a beautifully straightened smile? If so, you can still have one, even if you never had orthodontic work performed while you were a teen. Today at our dental practice, Kirk E. Kooker, DDS, our patients can receive treatment with clear braces from our Plano orthodontist, Dr. Kirk E. Kooker.
When patients come to our practice wanting to have their teeth straightened, our Plano orthodontist may be able to offer them treatment with Invisalign clear braces. Although clear braces cannot be used to treat all of the different kinds of bite problems, they are effective in treating many different bite problems including overbites, underbites, teeth that are too closely spaced, and teeth that have large gaps between them. Our dentist will be able to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for this type of treatment. If it is determined that your bite problem can be effectively treated with Invisalign, CAD/CAM computer technology will be used so that your own individualized set of aligners can be created. A set of Invisalign aligners will contain anywhere between 15 and 25 aligners in it, depending on the bite problem being fixed. Our patients truly enjoy treatment with Invisalign because they do not need to worry about ever being seen wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. This is because the clear plastic aligners that are used during treatment with Invisalign are virtually invisible while they are being worn. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment using traditional metal braces. Each aligner is worn for two weeks, in sequence, until teeth have been moved into position for the next aligner. The treatment will continue in this manner until the last aligner in the series is worn. At this point, you will have your beautifully straightened and healthy smile.

Plano Clear Braces
Many people end up undergoing orthodontic work of some kind. Usually, this sort of dental treatment is used to help correct uneven bites and malocclusions, and it can also be used to help straighten teeth. There are many different benefits to undergoing orthodontic work, and including the overall improvement of your dental and oral health, orthodontic treatment can also help to improve the overall appearance of your smile as well. There are plenty of different braces out there, and there are even clear options available for people who are concerned about their appearance through the duration of the procedure as well. Our dentist Kirk E. Kooker, DDS can help provide interested patients with Plano clear braces in the event that this is an option of interest.
There are many different kinds of braces, and there are also many different kinds of orthodontic tools and devices that can be used in conjunction with braces in order to help correct bites and straighten smiles. For many people, braces are a cosmetic concern, both in how they will make the resulting smile look as well as how braces appear while they are being worn. For those who are overly concerned about the way that their teeth and smile will look throughout the duration of the procedure, there are other options aside from traditional metal braces. This is not at all an uncommon feeling. Many adults, especially, feel concerned about their appearance with braces because they are generally associated with kids and teens. Here at the dental offices of Kirk E. Kooker, DDS, Plano clear braces are another available option for interested patients. Clear braces work in much the same way as traditional braces, but they are much more subtle in appearance.
Traditional metal braces are generally very noticeable and as stated earlier are generally associated with kids and teens. So it is not at all uncommon that people are concerned about their appearance with braces on. If you happen to be one of these people, then Kirk E. Kooker, DDS can help you determine whether clear braces are the right option for you. Call us today to learn more or schedule your evaluation today.
