Oradell Family Dental offers Invisalign® clear braces as an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment. If you have been hesitant to undergo important orthodontic treatment due to a desire to avoid a mouth full of metal braces, then Invisalign® may be an ideal option for you. This advanced dental technology corrects issues caused by crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth without the typical hassles associated with traditional braces.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Oradell, NJ cosmetic dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter will take bite impressions of your mouth which will be sent to the Invisalign® lab. The lab will then use precise 3-D computer imaging technology to create your Invisalign® aligners. As a result, your retainers will be custom fit for the unique attributes of your teeth, ensuring the best possible results for your treatment.
Each aligner will be worn for approximately two weeks. The retainer will apply gentle pressure, resulting in a gradual shift of your teeth. After two weeks, you will move on to the next aligner in the series to continue the straightening process. You will repeat this course of action until your teeth have reached their desired position.
The number of aligners necessary to complete your treatment will vary based on the condition of your teeth at the beginning of your treatment. The majority of patients complete the procedure within one to two years. It is important that you wear your aligners at all times in order to ensure proper results; however, you may remove them for meals or special occasions.
Benefits of Invisalign®
The greatest benefit of Invisalign® is that you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. As a result, Invisalign® has made orthodontic treatment much more accessible to many adults who are uncomfortable with spending two or more years with braces on their teeth.
Invisalign® also offers you improved hygiene compared to traditional braces. Since your aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally, reducing the risk of decay associated with traditional braces. You can also remove your aligners during meals, enabling you to eat and drink whatever you'd like.
Other benefits of Invisalign® include:
- Customized treatment to cater to your unique orthodontic needs
- Aligners have smooth edges for increased comfort
- Aligners can be removed for special occasions such as weddings, so you can look beautiful in pictures
