Monon Family Dental
Invisalign, Orthodontic Treatment, Adult Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatment refers to dental treatment that works to correct inconsistencies with the alignment and placement of teeth. If your teeth are misaligned in relation to each other or in relation to the anatomy of your jaw, you may need this type of treatment.
If you believe that you could benefit from orthodontic treatment, schedule an appointment at our Indianapolis dental office. Your Monon Family Dentist will give you a comprehensive evaluation to determine whether or not orthodontic treatment should be part of your dental wellness plan.
Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?
Orthodontic treatment serves a number of purposes. Through orthodontic treatment, your Monon Family Dental dentist can improve the appearance of your smile. Straight, well-aligned teeth contribute to a smile that appears beautiful and balanced.
If you are less than satisfied with the appearance of your teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Have you ever found yourself covering your mouth with your hand, or smiling only with your mouth closed? You’re not alone! Often, people who have crooked or misaligned teeth are so anxious about their appearance that they are hesitant to laugh or smile freely.
This type of treatment can also improve your bite. When we way “bite,” we are referring to the way that the teeth in your upper jaw fit together with the teeth in your lower jaw. If you have a malocclusion – meaning that your teeth fit together in an irregular way – you may experience difficulties chewing, eating, and even talking. An improper bite can also cause teeth to wear in an unhealthy way, possibly leading to problems with teeth grinding and erosion.
Straightening teeth can also improve oral health. This is because well-aligned teeth are easier to brush, floss, and care for than crooked or crowded teeth.
Varieties of Orthodontic Treatment
At Monon Family Dental, we offer orthodontic treatments for both adolescents and adults. We are proud to offer two different advanced treatments – Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently shift your teeth into their ideal positions. The movement of teeth is based on a plan carefully designed by your dentist. Because Invisalign aligners are clear, you can get the treatment you need without the appearance of traditional metal braces. The aligners can be removed during meals, and while you brush and floss. This makes it easier to care for your teeth.
With their combined experience, the dentists at Monon Family Dental have treated over 400 orthodontic cases with Invisalign and achieved great results for their patients.
We also offer Six Month Smiles — a treatment system that uses clear, discreet braces to realign your teeth in an average time of only six months! This type of orthodontic treatment uses the brackets-and-wires concept of traditional dental braces, but the clear brackets and wires make it less visible to help you maintain your mature, professional appearance.
