What is holding you back from having your teeth straightened? If the answer is that you don't like the idea of wearing braces, we at Sondhi-Biggs-Hansen Orthodontics are happy to tell you about clear braces. More to the point, Invisalign is a system of clear plastic aligners that allow you to have all the benefits of traditional braces but without any of the cosmetic challenges or discomfort that they can cause.
Invisalign is the result of advanced technology. Our Carmel orthodontist
doesn't have to take messy impressions of your teeth, nor send them out to the dental lab. Instead, your aligners are made right here in our office with the help of 3-D computer software for the utmost in precision, accuracy, and comfort. Depending on your individual circumstances, you will wear an average of 18 to 30 aligners during the course of your treatment (typically 9 to 15 months), each for about two to three weeks before moving on to the next one. The aligners are removable. You take them out to brush, floss, and eat. Otherwise, they remain in all day and night, even while you sleep, moving your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by our Carmel orthodontist. The biggest advantage for most people is that the rest of the world is unaware that you are wearing Invisalign. You just go about your day and you won't have to feel self-conscious. The only people who will know you have something on your teeth will be those you may choose to tell. There are also no food restrictions when you wear Invisalign. Eat whatever you want, even crunchy and sticky treats. And unlike metal braces, they won't cause you any mouth soreness or irritation.
Is Invisalign for you? There's only one way to find out. Call us to arrange a consultation with our Carmel orthodontist
