When our Bergenfield-area patients discuss their needs for orthodontic adjustment, they have a number of concerns and requests. They don’t want to deal with the discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. They don’t like the thought of coming back to the office for tightening appointments.They want something inconspicuous. Fortunately, there’s a solution that meets these needs: Invisalign®.
Invisalign® is a set of clear plastic aligners that will be custom-crafted to fit your teeth. You will simply slide the aligners on, and they will fit snugly over your teeth.
Invisalign® offers a range of advantages over traditional metal braces. First, you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck under the wires of your braces – you simply remove the aligners before you eat, then slide them back on after your meal.
Second, Invisalign® doesn’t require uncomfortable tightening appointments in the way metal braces do. You’ll simply return to the office for a new set of aligners every couple of weeks – no tightening required.
Finally (and, for many of our patients, most importantly), Invisalign® is completely inconspicuous. No one will be able to see your aligners, and no one will know you’re wearing them. We’ve found this is a priority for both our younger patients, who don’t want to be alienated from their peers, and adult patients, who don’t want to stand out at work by wearing traditional metal braces.
If you live in or around Bergenfield, New Jersey and you want a comfortable, pleasant, inconspicuous orthodontic experience, Invisalign® might be right for you. Please call Oradell Family Dental today at 201-384-9292 for a consultation and examination.
