Improve Your Appearance and Oral Health with Orthodontics
Straight teeth look great, but they can also make it easier to maintain oral health. Dr. David Taler offers traditional braces and Invisalign® to dramatically improve the look and function of your bite. When you choose to receive your orthodontics at our Fishers, IN, practice, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

Benefits of Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatments are designed to gently reposition your teeth and — in some cases — improve how your upper and lower jaw fit together. Most of our patients know that straight teeth provide several aesthetic benefits. However, many patients are unaware that properly aligned teeth can be a great benefit to their overall oral health.
Crooked teeth can limit a patient’s ability to brush and floss properly, which will often result in a build-up of bacteria and an increased risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Additionally, misaligned teeth or an abnormal bite can lead to teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. These conditions may cause symptoms such as headaches, dental damage, and jaw and facial pain. If left untreated, grinding can result in wear, chips, and cracks. At Advanced Family Dentistry, we can use customized orthodontic treatments to address these issues and relieve your symptoms.
Traditional metal braces have remained a safe and effective staple of general dentistry for decades. They are used to correct alignment issues both simple and severe. This reliable treatment option can address crowding, crossbite, and other issues. When you decide to receive traditional braces at Advanced Family Dentistry, we will first take detailed images of your teeth and jaw. The doctor will use these images to create a plan for effectively repositioning your teeth.
When you arrive at the office to receive your braces, Dr. Taler will begin by securely bonding a metal bracket to each tooth. Each bracket is then connected by metal wire. Over the course of treatment, Dr. Taler will gently tighten the wire to gradually align your teeth. Once your treatment is complete, the brackets and wires will be removed, and you will receive a retainer. Consistently wearing your retainer at night will help you maintain results for years to come.
Invisalign® Clear Aligners
Although traditional braces are extremely effective, many patients with mild to moderate alignment issues choose Invisalign® as a discreet and convenient orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign®, patients wear a series of custom trays made from smooth, clear plastic to straighten teeth. Aligners are nearly invisible, so those around you probably will not notice you are wearing them. Since trays are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods and clean your teeth as normal.
