Removable orthodontic aligners are the treatment of choice for many older patients, especially teens and adults. While children are glad to join their peers who have metal braces, our patients with professional jobs or who are highly conscious of their appearances may be less enthusiastic to receive bracket-and-wire braces.
Invisalign is the right choice for you if dental alignment problems diagnosed by Dr. Segal are mild to moderate. Clear braces are recommended most commonly for tilted and rotated teeth, as well as gaps between teeth. This orthodontic system makes it easy to keep your teeth clean during treatment and does not limit your diet by preventing consumption of hard or sticky foods. Patients who see best results with removable dental aligners wear their appliances for the full recommended 22 hours per day.
The Benefits of Removable Dental Aligners
Comfortable Orthodontic Treatment
Metal braces are highly effective, but the wires and brackets are known to irritate soft tissue inside cheeks. With Invisalign braces, patients receive sleek plastic appliances that are gentle on their smiles.
A Hassle-Free Experience
Patients with metal braces are given guide sheets on what to eat, which foods should be avoided, and how to properly clean around their bonded brackets. These new routines are a challenge to adapt to, but Invisalign braces do not come with any of the above setbacks. Patients simply remove their aligners to brush, floss, and eat normally.
Improved Confidence during Treatment
It can be hard to smile if you’re going to reveal a mouth full of metal. With Invisalign trays, the transparent plastic is difficult to detect, even by those who know you’re wearing braces. Clear dental trays give you the confidence to look and feel like yourself.
The Art of Smile: Your Invisalign Dentists in Florham Park
Our dental team is here to help you enjoy the smile you’ve always wanted with invisible orthodontics. During your initial consultation, Dr. Segal evaluates the health of your smile, checking for the presence of decay or gum disease. As orthodontic aligners may exacerbate these issues for patients who are not consistent with oral hygiene routines, it’s important to consider how Invisalign trays will impact your smile.
After your examination, Dr. Segal takes impressions of your current bite and teeth alignment. He sends these molds to Invisalign’s laboratory for the fabrication of your trays. Each appliance in the series is made to be worn for two weeks and to shift teeth closer to their ideal position.
