You want to have straighter teeth, but you don’t want to wear braces. So, what can you do? Well, you can take advantage of our Invisalign in Leonia. Here at Teaneck Dentist, we’re dedicated to providing you with all the most advanced solutions that are available, and when it comes to proper teeth alignment, invisible braces give you all the advantages that you expect from traditional metal braces, without any of the drawbacks that are associated with wearing them.
Invisalign is not exactly braces, but it does the same job. It’s a system of clear plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit you. Clear plastic means greater comfort for you. There will be no metal digging into your gums. And because it’s removable, you won’t have to restrict the types of foods you can eat while you’re getting treatment. Enjoy anything you want, even the stickiest foods. Best of all, though, our Invisalign in Leonia is nearly undetectable to the eye, meaning that you won’t have to suffer with feeling self-conscious for wearing your aligners.
Made right here in our office, using modern 3-D computer technology, your aligners are designed to precision. You will wear a total of about 18 to 30 over the course of the entire process, which typically takes an average of about 9 to 15 months for most people. Each aligner will be worn for about two weeks, and then it is discarded in favor of the next in the series, having done its part in moving your teeth into a more ideal position. You come in for a checkup about every six weeks during your treatment, just to make sure that everything is working well, and that no adjustments are needed.
As mentioned earlier, our Invisalign in Leonia are removable. Besides eating, you take them out only to brush and floss, which makes your oral hygiene more effective than doing so around metal braces. Otherwise, you wear your aligner all day and all night, even while you sleep. Most people are good candidates for Invisalign, but to be certain it’s right for you, why not call us and schedule a consultation to find out?
