Invisalign at Charming Smile Dental Jersey City
Do you dream of having a beautiful set of straight teeth, but without the discomfort brought by traditional braces? If the answer is yes, then you should consider an Invisalign procedure. In this dental procedure, customized plastic trays (aligners) are utilized in order to correctly align the teeth. Thus, Invisalign is capable of fixing most problems that traditional braces could fix– ranging from crooked teeth, to problems with your bite. Generally, the aligners are worn at night and all throughout the day. However, they should be removed whenever you’re going to eat. Likewise, they’re virtually invisible and most people wouldn’t even know that you’re wearing them, even when you smile.
Invisalign is available for both teenagers and adults. The average treatment plan lasts for about twelve months, but every plan is customized for the individual patient, so yours may be longer or shorter. We will work with you to create your own individual plan and will keep you informed of the progress you are making.
Why consider Invisalign over traditional braces?
Invisalign has numerous advantages over traditional braces:
- There are a number of reasons why you should give Invisalign a try. Here are some of the advantages it has as compared to traditional braces:
- With traditional braces, the patient needs to regularly visit the dentist in order to tighten the wires and see if the braces are properly intact. With Invisalign, all you need to do is change the set of aligners whenever it’s needed. This would be created based on the order of treatment given by your dentist.
- If you’re not aware, braces could leave permanent marks on your teeth, because of the brackets it has. Also, even with good oral hygiene, there’s still a potential risk of plaque buildup around the brackets and this would damage the enamel of your teeth. With Invisalign, you’re allowed to eat any foods you want and you don’t even need to worry about crunchy or sticky foods damaging the wires and brackets the traditional braces have.
- Due to the fact that braces have wires, it could accidentally poke your mouth, causing injury and pain. Similarly, a broken wire means another visit to your orthodontist. Traditional braces require frequent appointments to tighten the wires and check the condition of the braces. With Invisalign, you simply switch to the next set of aligners, which are created according to the order of treatment laid out by you and your dentist.
Who could be a Candidate for Invisalign?
Do you have crooked teeth? Do you have a prominent overbite or underbite?
Invisalign can treat these common problems and many others including:
- Protruding teeth
- Wide gaps
- Unusual spacing
- Open bite
Caring for Invisalign
Continuing to practice good oral hygiene habits while you are being treated with Invisalign is easy. Remove the aligners and brush and floss your teeth as usual. Brush your aligner and rinse with warm water or use the Invisalign cleaning kit to keep your aligners in good shape and free from bacteria.
Never use hot water to rinse or clean your aligners. The plastic could warp. If this happens, call our office immediately. You should also call our office if your aligner becomes cracked or is damaged in any other way. A cracked aligner will not correctly move your teeth and will impede your progress.
It’s important to always brush your teeth following a meal, before you replace your aligners. If you replace your aligners without brushing, not only could you cause bacteria to become trapped against your teeth, you could also cause staining and other damage to the aligners.
