Invisalign® Clear Braces for St. Louis County—Choose the Clear Alternative Available from South Towne Dental

South Towne Dental (Mehlville, MO) Uses Invisalign® Clear Braces for St. Louis County Area Patients

Invisalign® Clear Braces for St. Louis County residents is the convenient, clear alternative to previous wire and metal braces.  Invisalign® has been the clear alternative and an industry-standard treatment option for many years.  St. Louis metropolitan patients of South Towne Dental in Mehlville, Missouri, (314-635-9587), can have orthodontic treatment utilizing the Invisalign® system of custom-molded aligners that are created by your dentist.  Each removable aligner is custom-made during the course of treatment and is unique to the position of your teeth at the time mold is created; the process is truly unique to each patient.


Whether you have alignment problems with teeth that have lasted since your adult teeth came in as a teen or you have lived with the situation, be sure to discuss your expectations and goals with your local dentist, Dr. Adis Hasanagic, D.D.S.  He will perform the measurements, prescribe the course and duration of treatment and you molds will be custom-made as you proceed through the 12-18 month course (average treatment time).

Invisalign® Clear Braces Are Available in St. Louis County to Resolve Patient Teeth Alignment Issues

Invisalign® Clear Braces is the leading dental standard and system that replaces older style metal and wire braces—there are other systems to resolve misalignment issues as well, but these are applicable anytime a dentist would determine braces are the way to resolve teeth alignment issues.  Invisalign® Clear Braces is a system that utilizes removable aligners that are custom-molded to your teeth at a particular point in the treatment regime.  Each aligner (made about two to three week intervals) are progressive molds or “clear braces” that are designed to apply continual pressure on teeth to slowly push teeth into the best alignment achievable without invasive procedures and/or needing to perform extractions.  These braces can resolve many teeth alignment issues, although some situations are beyond the scope of the progressive molds to resolve.  Your dentist will work with you to determine the best treatment regimen.


Why is the Invisalign® Clear Braces system preferable to older style metal and wire braces?  Well, there are a lot reasons.  Invisalign® uses a series of custom-molded, removable aligners so patients may eat, drink and/or sleep without the molds as necessary.  Besides all of the advantages of being able to remove the braces, as a system, Invisalign® is dramatically better since most patients used to find dental hygiene quite complicated with older style braces.  Importantly, the molds are unique and fit just you.  The molds are progressive and continuously provide pressure.  Most patients have little to no pain, something most wearers of older style metal wire braces would not say.  Additionally, the braces are low profile, which many patients, particularly adults, find more desirable for a variety of reasons.  The entire system is also produced at your dentist’s office and there is a thorough review of alignment progress before each molds is made.  The system can resolve general teeth alignment problems over a reasonable time period, an average of 12-18 months.


When you choose South Towne Dental for Invisalign® Clear Braces in St. Louis County, you will have a local dentist with a local practice to be involved in your entire course of treatment.  Each patient’s case is different.  By using custom-molded braces, many teeth alignment issues may be rectified in a relatively short period of time.  When considering Invisalign® Clear Braces as your treatment regimen for teeth misalignment issues, be sure to discuss all of your goals and expectations about braces with Dr. Hasanagic, D.D.S.  We hope that each patient can utilize these molds easily.  The process does take patient commitment, but most adults are pleased with outcomes.
