Straighter Teeth Without a Strained Budget
Clear aligners are a common choice at KBL Orthodontics because they get the job done without interrupting your daily routine. These clear, removable appliances are personalized to fit easily over your teeth.
The Invisalign Process at KBL Orthodontics
If you’re already dreading the thought of long dental appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, Invisalign clear aligners from KBL Orthodontics may be the right choice to straighten your teeth. We offer Invisalign for teens, adults and kids alike at our office in Dothan.
At our Dothan office, we offer Invisalign and 3M Clarity clear aligners to kids, teens, and adults alike. These aligners are made of a nearly-invisible plastic material. They not only straighten your teeth but allow you to continue to brush and floss as usual because you can take out the trays when you wish.
Clear aligners with Dr. Katie B. Lewis offer you a less intrusive way to get the same results as traditional braces. For a similar cost and treatment time, this option allows you to straighten your smile comfortably and discreetly.
Dr. Lewis can use Invisalign to give you a stunning smile in almost half the time of traditional braces by creating a series of clear, custom-fit aligners. Come to our office in Dothan for a free consultation exam—a simple and time-efficient first step.
Ideal for Teens
At KBL Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey toward straighter teeth, and clear aligners help Dr. Lewis do that.
Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a thespian, a class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in all your activities without the barrier that traditional braces might present.
And, since clear aligners are made of see-through plastic and almost invisible, your Dothan friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them.
Dr. Lewis thinks that teens around Dothan should participate in the activities they want while still feeling confident enough to attend social events to create lasting memories.
You should also be able to get efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.
Clear aligners help you focus on doing what you do best—being yourself. At your first free consultation with Dr. Lewis, you’ll discover how clear aligners can fit your smile and lifestyle!
Designed for Little Smiles
Now kids in Dothan and the surrounding areas can get comfortable and clear results with Invisalign® treatment at KBL Orthodontics.
About Invisalign First
In 2018, Invisalign released a clear aligner system designed for patients ages 7-10 years old called Invisalign First or Invisalign First Phase.
Dr. Lewis can use Invisalign clear aligners to create predictable results and positive experiences for your child while addressing their unique needs.
Invisalign First at KBL Orthodontics can help treat:
- Aesthetic alignment
- A bad bite
- Arch development
- Preserving space for unerupted permanent teeth
Using Invisalign for Kids in Phase 1 Treatment
Whether you live around Dothan or anywhere else—as your child grows up, their smile grows with them.
And even with baby teeth, it may be the perfect time for children ages 6 to 10 years old to start orthodontic treatment at KBL Orthodontics.
This is known as Phase 1 treatment. At this stage, orthodontists like Dr. Lewis can see issues that may need early treatment to address a developing problem.
Benefits of Invisalign First
A Simple Start
Invisalign First treatment starts with a simple digital scan (no goopy impressions).
From there, every step of your child’s plan is plotted digitally, so you know what to expect.
Made for All Sorts of Smiles
Invisalign First clear aligners can fix a wide range of issues, including crowding, spacing, and narrow dental arches.
A Happier Experience
With removable aligners, there’s not much interruption to your child’s life. They can even continue to eat foods that they love.
Plus, the aligners are specifically designed to fit smaller teeth and include space to accommodate teeth that are growing in.
Keep Your Hygiene Routine
Growing children can continue to brush and floss without the hassle and keep their good hygiene habits on track.
Differences Between Braces & Invisalign
When it comes to Invisalign treatment, there’s a lot to consider. Most Invisalign patients at KBL Orthodontics enjoy shorter check-ups, fewer appointments, simpler oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.
However, the system's biggest pro can also be a con—the fact that the aligners are removable. Your cooperation is essential, whether you have braces or Invisalign.
Since braces are attached to your teeth, they do the heavy lifting to keep your treatment progressing. With Invisalign, you need to do a little extra work during your treatment so your trays can complete your treatment.
You’ll need to manage your wear time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series. You need to be sure that you can do this before committing to Invisalign treatment.
Like with traditional metal braces, Dr. Lewis recommends wearing a retainer after your Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment and your confident new smile.
