Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth without unsightly metal braces. At Southeast Family Dental, the therapy uses a custom-made series of aligners worn over your teeth to gradually and gently shift them into place over time. Each aligner is typically worn for two to three weeks before moving on to the next pair in the series, and the entire process can take up to a year for adults to complete. Invisalign is an excellent option for many adults who want a discreet option for straightening their teeth. It’s also perfect for those looking to straighten their smile quickly and comfortably.

Another significant advantage of Invisalign is that you can easily remove them when brushing or flossing your teeth. This means you can keep your mouth clean and healthy during treatment without working around any brackets or wires. In addition, you can also eat whatever you want during Invisalign treatment without worrying about damaging your appliances.

Invisalign vs. Braces

Unlike traditional wire and bracket braces that apply a constant force on the teeth, Invisalign gradually shifts the teeth over time. Each tray is custom-made from clear plastic designed to fit comfortably over the teeth and slowly move them into better alignment. The movement of the teeth is based on a precise treatment plan mapped out by the dentist at the beginning of the treatment. Each aligner is designed to move one set of teeth a little bit at a time until they reach their final position by the end of the treatment. Once patients end their Invisalign treatment, they can continue wearing the retainers to prevent future relapses. This is an excellent option for patients who do not currently have the time for frequent orthodontic appointments.

The Advantages of Invisalign

The convenience of Invisalign aligners is unmatched by other tooth straightening treatments. Aligners can be removed for up to two hours daily, so you can enjoy all your favorite foods while undergoing treatment. You can remove the aligners to brush and floss your teeth normally to maintain good oral hygiene. Plus, you don’t have to worry about wires or brackets irritating your cheeks and gums like with braces. Regular checkups are essential to orthodontic treatment, but with Invisalign, you can also avoid the discomfort associated with metal wire tightening appointments!

If you’d like to straighten your smile without others knowing you’re receiving orthodontic care, Invisalign clear aligners may be correct. To learn more about Invisalign, visit Southeast Family Dental at 6020 Southeastern Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46203, or call (317) 359-8000.
