Dentist Indianapolis Straighten Up!

See Why Patients Around the World Love Invisalign


When you smile, do you do so freely, or do your lips act as a veil over your teeth? Hiding misalignment can be a challenge. For many teens and adults, the idea of wearing metal braces, or even invisible brackets and wires, is an even bigger challenge. Operating from this assumption can keep you from getting the straighter, healthier teeth that you want. If you are in the Indianapolis area, your dentist at Tenth Street Dental Care & Denture Center can help you determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign.


Rescue your Smile with Invisalign

Many people have an idea of what Invisalign is; that it is a way to straighten teeth. There are two common assumptions that people have. One is that Invisalign is nothing more than invisible braces (brackets and wires). This is incorrect. Invisalign is a system of aligners that look like teeth whitening trays. These aligners fit over the teeth comfortably. The second assumption that people make is that there is no possible way that flimsy plastic trays can straighten teeth. This is also incorrect. Invisalign has been around for several years and has straightened hundreds of thousands of smiles.


Before tossing the idea aside, consider the advantages of the Invisalign system. Patients who move forward often do so because of benefits such as:


  • Discreet appearance. One of the biggest drawbacks to conventional orthodontic treatment is the way that metal brackets look. Quite literally, there is no way to hide them.
  • Convenience. There is something to be said for having the ability to remove the fixtures that straighten your teeth! One of the primary advantages of this aspect of Invisalign is that you can take the best possible care of your oral health throughout your treatment plan. Braces, with their brackets and wires, get in the way of your toothbrush and floss.
  • Comfort. Brackets have corners and edges that can be somewhat sharp. No matter how careful you are, there is a chance that one of these edges can catch your lip or cheek. Ouch!
  • Freedom. Aside from appearance, difficulty brushing, and injury, braces are also unappealing for many patients because they get in the way of eating certain types of foods. If you are a lover of steak or corn on the cob, you can imagine the mess that can be made thanks to braces! Invisalign lets you eat what you'd like without fear of breaking a fixture or having to spend hours cleaning your teeth.
