Clear Aligners | Kansas City & Sedalia

The Clear Alternative to Braces

If you need a healthier smile but don’t want to deal with braces, clear aligners at Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics may be the alternative you’re searching for.

We use sets of clear aligners instead of brackets and wires to straighten your teeth — so your smile journey is both discreet and comfortable.

Why Choose Aligners?

Kavanaugh aligners are a virtually invisible alternative to traditional braces that use clear aligners to apply force and move teeth into the best possible alignment. Clear aligners can treat crowding, spacing, crossbites, overbites, and underbites.

If you’re a teenager, young adult, or adult patient who wants a straighter smile but is concerned about the visibility of traditional braces, Dr. Kavanaugh can help you find out if clear aligners is the perfect solution for you.

Benefits of Aligners

Patients at Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics are discovering the many benefits of clear aligners. You’ll love advantages such as:


While metal braces come with metal brackets and wires that can be uncomfortable, clear aligners are much less likely to irritate your mouth. Because of the flexible plastic material of the aligners, they are usually the more comfortable option.

Appearance & Invisibility

Clear aligners are designed to be virtually invisible. Due to the treatment’s discreet nature, more and more adults are choosing clear aligners since they won’t clash with their professional image.

No Food Restrictions

With metal braces, you need to avoid many foods as they may damage the wires and brackets. With clear aligners, we won’t ask you to make any dietary modifications because you’ll remove them when eating anyway.

Simplified Cleaning Routines

With clear aligners, you won’t need to modify your habitual oral hygiene routine. You can simply remove them to brush and floss as you normally do.


With clear aligners, you’ll need fewer check-up appointments than traditional braces. All you’ll typically need is a brief appointment once every six to nine weeks so we can ensure your treatment is right on track!
