About Teeth Straightening
Though many people may want beautiful, straight teeth, they may put off treatment due to concerns of wearing metal brackets. Traditional metal braces do get the job done but they can be unsightly. Cleaning can also be a challenge with braces that do not come off, making brushing and flossing more difficult. At Martin Dentistry in Indianapolis, Indiana, patients can have a beautiful new smile without traditional metal braces using Invisalign or Six Month Smiles. Cosmetic and general dentists, Drs. Martin, Martin, and Marshall can help patients determine which treatment is best for their needs.

What to Expect
At the first appointment digital X-rays and impressions are made and a series of 3-D images are created to send to the Invisalign lab. We can send patients home with several sets of aligners to change out every two weeks so their appointments are cut down to a minimum. Patients should wear the trays day and night, removing them only to eat and brush their teeth. The aligners are designed to move the teeth little by little until the patient's bite is optimized.
Six Month Smiles®:
For fast teeth straightening, Six Month Smiles uses clear, low-impact braces to gently push the teeth into place using traditional orthodontic methods. The braces remain on the patient's teeth at all time, but the clear brackets and tooth-colored wires allow them to appear almost invisible. After the braces are removed in 6 months, the patient will wear a retainer to prevent the teeth from shifting back.
Patients should continue to visit Martin Dentistry once a year for a dental exam and twice a year for a professional dental cleaning to ensure their new, straight smile remains healthy and bright. At the dental exam, the dentist will check to make sure the teeth have not shifted out of alignment. A good home oral care routine is also important, including brushing twice a day and flossing.
