What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Straight teeth not only offer a beautiful smile, but they tend to be healthier and easier to care for. Dental concerns (like overcrowding of the teeth or an uneven bite) might also result in subsequent health complications that may have consequences for your oral function, which could be costly to fix. In an effort to help individuals experience the rewards of an attractive, healthy grin, our office takes pride in offering Invisalign orthodontics to teenagers and adults in Indianapolis, IN. Invisalign treatment steadily maneuvers teeth by way of a series of removable, nearly invisible aligners, offering a less obvious appearance and a convenient option over traditional metal braces. Determine if Invisalign aligners are right for your oral health needs by scheduling a consultation with a member of the experienced team at Martin Dentistry today.

"I’ve been going here for about a year and had multiple cleanings, one crown and one replacement filling done. The staff are great and they offer nitrous gas for procedures at an additional cost which I appreciate. I’m very happy with the work I’ve had done and I did not have discomfort for very long after my procedures."- S.J. / Yelp / May 22, 2023

Should I Get Invisalign Aligners?
Adults and teens who want a discreet solution instead of traditional metal braces may be ideal candidates for Invisalign orthodontics. This solution can be suitable for fixing malocclusion (an open bite, crossbite, underbite, or overbite), a narrow dental arch, crooked or overcrowded teeth, and gaps between teeth. Treating these problems may allow for enhanced comfort and jaw function, as well as speaking and eating abilities. Clear aligners are also easy to remove from the mouth, letting Indianapolis, IN teenagers and adults savor their favorite meals with no dietary limitations and take care of their teeth without bulky appliances standing in the way. During your treatment consultation at Martin Dentistry, a member of our team will take dental radiographs and provide an exam to help decide if Invisalign aligners are a suitable solution for you.
How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?
Invisalign clear aligners function through a sequence of clear, removable mouth trays that incrementally move your teeth into their appropriate location. To initiate your orthodontic treatment, a member of our Indianapolis, IN team will take impressions of your upper and lower arches, which will be given to a dedicated lab where your customized aligner trays will be crafted. After your aligners are sent to our office, our team will have you return to try on your first set and receive instructions on how to wear them. Your aligner trays should be kept in place for 20 – 22 hours each day and only removed just before brushing your teeth, flossing your teeth, eating meals or snacks, and drinking beverages. Approximately every 1 – 2 weeks, you will need to swap your current set of aligners for the next in your series. One of our team members will help you schedule routine orthodontic exams at Martin Dentistry so our Invisalign provider can review your teeth straightening progression.
What Results Can I expect From Invisalign Treatment?
The length of time needed for Invisalign aligners will vary according to your personal goals and needs, but many people wear their removable, clear aligners for about 12 – 24 months. When your orthodontic care is over, it is imperative to keep your teeth from moving by wearing retainers. Custom Vivera® retainers are constructed with the same flexible, comfortable substance as the teeth aligner trays and are customized in the Invisalign lab. Once they are delivered to Martin Dentistry, our staff will inform you of how often you should wear your retainers, as well as ways to clean them. Dr. Martin will consistently track the alignment of your teeth and your end result at your routine dental visits.
