What Are Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign clear aligners are a popular and practically invisible way to straighten your teeth. These thin trays are made from a body-safe plastic and are designed to gently shift your teeth into their optimal position. Your treatment will consist of a series of trays that will help transform your current smile into the smile you have been dreaming of.
Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks before you move on to the next tray in the process. In order to maintain the expected treatment time, it is vital that you wear your clear trays for approximately 22 hours each day. You will need to remove your Invisalign trays whenever you eat or drink. If you lose a tray, contact us immediately to see if a new tray needs to be ordered. Until then, you can wear the previous set to maintain your progress.
Our Invisalign Process
We believe that you deserve your dream smile, and our Invisalign treatment is an efficient and effective way for you to achieve it. When you visit our office in Indianapolis for clear braces, we will sit down with you and discuss your goals. Our dentist encourages you to ask questions and share your concerns, and we are happy to provide the answers and information you need to make an informed decision.
Our compassionate dentist will perform a thorough exam and use our iTero® scanner to take detailed images of your teeth, jaws, and gums. Once we have determined that your bite misalignment can be addressed with Invisalign, we will craft a treatment plan that is tailored to you.
When your set of trays arrives, we will walk you through the process of how to use them, how to clean and maintain them, and set up appointments to check on your progress and make any necessary adjustments. At each step in your journey to a straighter smile, you will find that we are readily available when you need us.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign is a proven method for straightening mild to moderate alignment issues, such as crowded or crooked teeth, and offers many benefits. Some of these benefits include:
Comfort: Invisalign trays are made from a thin, smooth body-safe plastic, which is more comfortable than traditional braces since you won't feel metal brackets or an archwire irritating the inside of your cheeks and lips.
Discreet: The clear trays fit snugly over your teeth, so most people won't notice them while you're wearing them, allowing you to straighten your smile without calling attention to your aligners during the process.
Convenience: Traditional braces require a different diet because you have to avoid hard and sticky foods. Invisalign trays are removable, so you don't have to change your diet during treatment. Simply remove your trays before you eat or drink and put them on again after you finish.
Oral Health: Invisalign straightens your teeth, leading to more effective results when you brush and floss your teeth, as well as improved bite function. When your teeth are cleaner and they wear evenly, this leads to better overall oral health.
Our friendly team encourages you to ask questions and share your concerns, and we are happy to provide the information you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about Invisalign.
Because of the innovative nature of Invisalign, the clear aligners straighten your teeth with minimal discomfort. When you first change to a new tray in your series, you may feel some slight pressure as the trays begin moving your teeth, but it's common to quickly forget you're even wearing them.
Yes. Invisalign is a proven way to permanently and comfortably straighten your smile. Once your treatment is complete, you will have to wear a retainer to maintain your results.
Your treatment timeline is dependent upon the severity of your malocclusion and whether you commit to wearing your clear aligners for 22 hours each day. Our dentist will discuss your custom timeline during your appointment, and we will adjust the timeline as needed during treatment. On average, most Invisalign treatments take between 6-18 months.
