Malocclusion can impact both the function and appearance of your smile. Traditionally, dealing with malocclusion required treatments such as braces, but advancements in dental technology have made such intrusive procedures largely unnecessary for mild to moderate cases.
Dumont family dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter is pleased to offer a range of orthodontic alternatives. He would be happy to discuss all of your options to help you determine which will best meet your unique needs.
For personalized information about alternatives to orthodontics, please call 201-384-9292 to schedule an examination with Dr. Perlmutter today.
For mild cases of malocclusion, Dr. Perlmutter may recommend porcelain veneers. Often called “instant orthodontics,” these wafer-thin shells can be placed over the front of your teeth to immediately address issues such as gaps, irregular sizes/shapes, and crooked positioning.
If your malocclusion is more pronounced, Dr. Perlmutter may recommend Invisalign. Ideal for teens and adults, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently move misaligned teeth into their optimal position. Invisalign are more comfortable than braces and offer additional advantages that can be discussed during your consultation with our experienced family dentist.
