Award-Winning Elite Provider Of Invisalign In Waynesville, Camdenton & Lebanon, MO

Intro To Invisalign

Stryker Orthodontics offers the latest in Invisalign Techniques and Treatment. We are an Elite Invisalign doctor in Camdenton, Lebanon and Waynesville, Missouri (MO). Most notably, this name is only given to the top 1% of Invisalign providers in the country. In addition, we are the only practice outside of Kansas City and St. Louis to have two i-CAT® Cone Beam 3D dental image systems. We are also one of only a few orthodontic offices in Missouri that offers four iTero Scanners for Invisalign (which means no gagging impressions). Schedule your free consultation and smile assessment today with our Invisalign doctor.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign

Getting Started With Invisalign

icat and itero Even on your first visit, you will have access to digital x-ray’s taken with the i-Cat® 3D Imaging system. The iCat system scans your entire head and allows your orthodontist to see a better view of your current mouth structure by producing a 3D image of your smile in under 1 minute!

Most of all, Stryker Orthodontics is one of only a few offices in Missouri that has an iTero Scanner for Invisalign patients. The iTero Scanner takes a scan of the teeth instead of having to take impressions that are often uncomfortable and tend to gag some patients. Furthermore, all of our patients that choose Invisalign can take advantage of this new technology. We offer a scanner in each of our three locations! The scans allow for better-fitting aligners so treatment is more accurate, and in most cases, treatment time is shorter.

FAQ

How many patients have been treated with Invisalign?

More than 4 million patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign-and that number grows daily!

Will Invisalign treatment be painful?

It is normal that some people experience temporary feeling of discomfort described as pressure. This discomfort typically goes away in a couple of days.

How long will treatment take?

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case. Average adult cases take about 18 months; teen cases may vary.

What’s the best way to clean my aligners?

Brush and rinse your aligners each time you remove and reinsert them . Do not soak your aligners in mouthwash.

Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?

Like other orthodontic treatments, Invisalign aligners may temporarily affect your speech, and you may have a slight lisp for a day or two.

Are there restrictions as to what I can eat while in treatment?

No. You can eat/drinkanything you’d like if you remove your aligner. It is important that you brush your teeth after every meal prior to reinserting your aligner.

Can I chew gum while wearing aligners?

No, gum will stick to the aligners. We recommend removing your aligners for all meals and snacks.

Can I drink alcohol with the aligners in?

A moderate amount would be fine to consume, as long as care is taken to clean the teeth and the aligners soon after consumption.

Will smoking stain the aligners?

We discourage smoking while wearing aligners because it is possible for the aligners to become discolored.

Can the aligners slip off while I’m asleep?

It is very unlikely that your aligners would ever fall out, no matter what you were doing at the time: sleeping, talking, laughing, etc. The aligners are designed to fit firmly.

The Stunning Truths Parents Should Know About Invisalign Teen

stunning truths parents should know about invisalign

From social lives to social media, teens today are facing more and more challenges when it comes to their self-esteem.

When you un-brace the truth, you’ll discover why Invisalign Teen clear aligners are a better choice over braces.

Complex Cases

As an Invisalign doctor, we are at an advantage when it comes to using Invisalign to treat patients with complex cases. Sometimes patients will present for a second opinion, having been told that they are not candidates for orthodontic treatment with Invisalign due to the severity of their tooth position or bite. At Stryker Orthodontics, we often use what we refer to as “90/10” treatment. This means that approximately 10% of treatment will include a special bite corrector, expander, or perhaps braces on a few of the back teeth to correct bite issues or severe rotations efficiently. Then we will use Invisalign for the majority of the treatment. Many of these complex Invisalign cases can be treated in under 2 years. We try to find a way to say “yes” to orthodontic treatment with Invisalign!
