There is nothing better than having a confident, healthy smile. Not only does it offer a more aesthetically pleasing appearance that makes you feel good, but it also contributes to your overall health. For most people, this kind of smile isn’t usually something you’re born with. It often requires the expertise of a dental professional to help you achieve the kind of results you want. If crooked teeth are keeping you from feeling and looking your best, there’s no better solution than allowing a properly trained and certified dentist treat your smile with Invisalign in Indianapolis by Indy Dental Group. Find out more about this effective orthodontic treatment and how it can properly align your smile.
What is Invisalign?
If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces, Invisalign is the perfect solution. Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, making them virtually invisible, and are removable, making both oral hygiene and maintenance of aligners incredibly easy. Patients who choose Invisalign receive multiple sets of aligners, each gently shifting the teeth towards a healthy alignment.
There are no brackets or wires with Invisalign, making it the ideal choice for many adults. Not only are they discreet, but they also offer flexibility. Some of the additional benefits of Invisalign include:
- Easy cleaning – Invisalign does not use brackets or wires making it very easy to access all surfaces of your teeth with a toothbrush and floss for optimal oral hygiene.
- Faster treatment – Patients who receive treatment with Invisalign, on average, achieve the desired results within 12 to 18 months. Traditional braces can take 2 to 3 years.
- Customized to your needs – Invisalign aligners are custom-made by technicians in a dental lab based on the digital scan (no messy impressions!) provided by your Indy Dental Group dentist in Indianapolis.
- No irritation – Traditional metal braces can rub and irritate the soft tissues of your mouth, but Invisalign aligners are smooth, making it a much more comfortable experience.
Why is Proper Training and Certification Important to Achieving Quality Results?
As one of the most unique and exciting methods of orthodontic treatment, it should come as no surprise that orthodontists are not the only dental professionals who can treat patients with Invisalign. General dentists can also be Invisalign certified, but complete specialized training is required prior to being able to treat patients.
In 2018, the company that started Invisalign, Align Technologies, created the Advantage Program, recognizing Invisalign-trained dentists and orthodontists who have acquired additional education and experience with Invisalign. Indy Dental Group is proud to have been recognized as a Gold level provider in 2018, and a Platinum level provider in 2019.
