Clear Aligners

The invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. To discuss clear aligners in the McPherson KS area, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment.

  • Clear aligners move teeth by using a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.
  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Yowell or Dr. Buckbee‘s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology as well as our 3D printer.
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Drs. Yowell or Buckbee has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Drs. Yowell or Buckbee about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
