InvisalignAn Overview

The development of clear aligners has transformed the field of orthodontics and enabled a wider range of patients to achieve their dental health and aesthetic goals with treatment that is less invasive, more comfortable and discreet. Drs. Carole and Robin Thoman can help you address mild to moderate orthodontic concerns and aesthetic goals using Invisalign® clear aligners in our Indianapolis dental office.

Invisalign is often the perfect solution for teen and adult patients who need to address malocclusion or desire to straighten a crooked smile. We can work with you to meet your needs and help you achieve a smile that is more beautiful, healthy and will support your long-term dental health. Dr. Carole or Dr. Robin will evaluate your needs and determine if Invisalign is right for you before recommending treatment.

Benefits of Invisalign

When appropriate for your needs, Invisalign can offer certain unique benefits that make straightening your smile easy and convenient.

  • Invisible aligners: no one has to know you are wearing braces, making it convenient for professionals and adults
  • Comfortable treatment: made from a hard-soft material that does not irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth
  • Removable aligners: your aligners can be temporarily removed as needed to maintain your daily oral hygiene routine and to enjoy your favorite foods. We recommend brushing your teeth before replacing the aligners if removed to eat and drink.

Invisalign What to Expect

The Invisalign process will begin with dental impressions taken in our office using a digital scanner- no need for messy impression trays. These will be uploaded and the digital images will be used in the creation of your personal treatment plan and custom series of aligners. The Invisalign lab will create a series of aligners based on the treatment plan we submit, the number of which will depend on the severity of your dental concerns and the length of treatment needed to correct them. Most patients complete their treatment with Invisalign in 12-15 months.

Patients will need to come in for periodic checkups during treatment, generally every 6-8 weeks so that Dr. Robin or Dr. Carole can monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed.

Invisalign: How Does It Work?

Invisalign uses advanced CAD/CAM technology to plan your tooth movement and create a series of aligners that are designed to gradually reposition your teeth using forces that impact the bone and soft tissue structures supporting the teeth. Changed every two weeks on average, the aligners can be as effective as traditional metal wires and brackets for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns and bite problems.

Once complete, we recommend the ongoing daily use of a custom-made retainer to avoid orthodontic relapse, keeping your new smile looking great for a lifetime.
