Kansas City & Sedalia Braces

Braces are a great option for correcting complex tooth issues. Due to their effectiveness at aligning teeth and closing gaps, they can sometimes work faster than other treatments, which can reduce overall treatment time.

Braces don't require expensive equipment or complex technology, making them a cost-effective orthodontic option for patients in Kansas City and Sedalia.

Traditional braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools available. They consist of either metal or ceramic brackets affixed to the teeth, connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or ties.

These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply gentle pressure that gradually moves teeth into the desired positions. Regular adjustments with Dr. Kavanaugh are necessary for the best results.

Kansas City & Sedalia Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are becoming increasingly popular among patients and orthodontists in Kansas City and Sedalia as a top alternative to traditional braces. Rather than relying on brackets and bands, these invisible aligners gradually straighten teeth.

At Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics, we use a comfortable plastic material to create customized aligners that fit snugly over your teeth. It's important to follow our guidelines closely and switch to the next aligner in the series every two to three weeks to keep your teeth moving in the right direction.

For optimal results, patients should wear their aligners for 20 – 22 hours per day throughout treatment. Failure to do so can impede progress and prolong the orthodontic process.

While clear aligners are highly effective in treating many common orthodontic issues, they may not be the best option for complex cases. We offer free consultations at our Kansas City and Sedalia locations.
