Award-Winning Orthodontists & Pediatric Dentists in Kansas City, Liberty, Raymore & Excelsior Springs, MO
If you are considering braces or orthodontic treatment to increase your confidence or treat a dental health obstacle, Burleson Orthodontics has a wide variety of braces and orthodontic treatment options to meet your lifestyle needs. Whether you prefer a faster orthodontic treatment or a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment, Burleson Orthodontics in the Kansas City area of Missouri (MO) has you covered.
Metal Braces – A New Standard
Our traditional metal braces at Burleson Orthodontics are different than the braces patients wore 10 years ago. Before today’s advancements in orthodontic technology, brace wearers would meticulously clean and maintain colorful rubber bands that often broke and collected food particles. Today, Burleson Orthodontics utilizes a newer orthodontic technology called “self-litigating braces.” These braces have a sliding door mechanism that holds the wire in place. Not only do these special braces work faster than traditional metal braces, they are also easier to maintain and healthier for your smile over all!
Clear Braces – Braces that are Hardly Noticeable!
For our patients who speak in front of crowds or spend a lot of time in front of the camera, metal braces are not typically a viable option of braces. To overcome this obstacle, Burleson Orthodontics offers clear ceramic braces to our patients in need of a more discreet type of braces. The brackets are clear, so most people won’t even notice you have braces!
Braces Behind the Teeth – Keep Your Braces a Secret
If you need a type of braces or othodontic treatment option that keeps any appliance from obstructing your smile, Burleson Orthodontics offers Incognito™ Braces – or, braces behind your teeth. The brackets are placed on the back side of your teeth, keeping your smile free from obstructing brackets or wires. You will be straightening your smile without anyone even knowing you have braces!
Invisalign® – The Virtually Invisible Way to Straighten Your Teeth
Getting braces typically requires a shift in many everyday habits. With brackets and wires, you have to use special interdental toothbrushes to get between brackets and under wires when you brush and floss. With Invisalign®, offered by Burleson Orthodontics, your smile-changing experience will only require a couple of minor changes in your day-to-day routine! Additionally, Invisalign® uses clear, plastic aligner trays that are removable. This allows you to eat what you want, play what sports you want, and play what instruments you want, without adjusting to the requirements associated with traditional orthodontic braces. You only need to brush your trays every time you brush your teeth (after every meal) and remember to swap to the new trays every two weeks! No one will even know you are straightening your teeth!
