Invisalign® Treatment in Indianapolis, IN
Ready to get started?Contact Us
At Ball Dentistry, our doctors often recommend an Invisalign procedure rather than traditional braces. Invisalign treatment is a breakthrough orthodontic option that lets you have the smile you've always wanted without the hassle of braces. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, the Invisalign treatment straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike conventional braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. Most patients can expect to wear their Invisalign clear aligners for about a year.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment overseen by the experienced team at Ball Dentistry is an exciting, safe, and effective alternative to traditional braces and orthodontics. Benefits of this customized treatment at our Indianapolis, IN facility include:
- Less noticeable and more comfortable than braces
- Aligners can be taken out to eat, have photographs taken, and play an instrument

- Aligner trays are developed specifically for your teeth and oral health
Who Is A Candidate For Invisalign?
Adults and teenagers who want a less-noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces may be good candidates for Invisalign treatment. This treatment can be appropriate for resolving tooth misalignment (an underbite, open bite, overbite, or crossbite), a narrow arch, crooked or crowded teeth, and spaces between teeth. Taking care of such conditions could enhance comfort, jaw function, and speaking and eating abilities. Invisalign teeth aligners are easier to remove from the mouth, allowing Indianapolis, IN adults and teenagers to savor their favorite food items without restrictions and floss and brush their teeth without wires and brackets getting in the way. During your appointment at Ball Dentistry, a member of our team will take dental radiographs and then perform an exam to decide if Invisalign clear aligners are a good option for you.
Ball Dentistry Reviews
Soooo truthfully and transparent, I was terrified for my first visit here. From the time I walked in, nothing but professionalism and kindness. Jessica and Dr. Ball were the icing on the cake. They were thorough, considerate, personable, and more importantly, they genuinely cared. 10 out of 10 (in this case 5 out of 5) recommend.
I would like to thank Dr Ball and all the staff for their kindness and I appreciate the help with my full upper denture that I had replaced by them. Also for my years of cleanings which has always been a great experience. Thank you all again.
Dr Andrea and Michelle were phenomenal. They were gentle and professional, and made my experience painless. I would highly recommend Ball Dentistry for anyone looking for dental care in the Carmel area.
I have been going to Ball Dentistry since 1970. I have lived in Switzerland, Austria, Italy and New York and have had to see dentists in all those places. At 59 they are simply the best (and they are kind and lots of fun)!
Been coming here for four years and every visit, I have felt comfortable and all my concerns handled. Highly recommend this Dentristy!

Not All Teeth Can Be Perfect
Having crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth can be embarrassing, sometimes painful, and often uncomfortable. Generally speaking, when you speak to a dentist, he or she may recommend treating your orthodontic problem with years of uncomfortable and unattractive metal braces. This is the biggest distraction for patients to fix their teeth and enjoy a perfectly aligned smile. Here at Ball Dentistry, we want you to know that Invisalign treatment offers a modern way to straighten your teeth and even correct misaligned bites without the use of traditional braces.
If you have gapped teeth, an overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, or overly crowded teeth, Invisalign clear aligners may work for you! Call us at or request an appointment online to come into the Indianapolis, IN dental office of Ball Dentistry. We would love to be able to discuss an Invisalign plan specific to you and get you well on your way to a beautifully straight smile!

Invisalign® Treatment FAQs
What do aligners look like?
Aligners are clear and nearly invisible. If you've ever seen clear teeth-whitening trays, that should give you a good idea of what the aligners look like. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit and move your teeth.
Will the treatment be painful?
Each time you change to a new aligner, there may be some temporary discomfort while your teeth adjust to their new position. This is completely normal, and is a good sign that the treatment is working.
Will wearing Invisalign aligners affect my speech?
Some people are affected more than others, but most adjust in a short period of time to the feeling of the aligners and do not have permanent changes in their speech.
How often will I have to wear my aligners?
Invisalign treatment only works while you're wearing the aligners. It's recommended that you wear your aligners full-time, day and night, except to eat, brush, and floss your teeth.
What happens after treatment to prevent my teeth from moving again?
This varies person to person and depends on the outcome of the treatment. Some patients might need a positioner, or conventional retainer. Other patients might need a clear plastic retainer.
How affordable is the Invisalign treatment?
The total cost of Invisalign treatment is similar to that of traditional braces. Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment just as they would with regular metal braces. Every unique case has many different factors that can all affect total treatment cost, so it's extremely difficult to put a price tag on custom treatment plans. Ball Dentistry can do all the legwork for you and will check with your dental insurance provider to see just how much they will cover. Call our office at 317-846-3463 or request an appointment and come in to be evaluated. Only then will we be able to quote an Invisalign treatment plan, work with your insurance, and talk about available payment options. We will make sure there is no guessing and that you know how much your specific treatment will be. Most patients are amazed at just how affordable and easy it is to obtain a straighter smile!
