At Teaneck Dentist we offer a wide variety of dental care and orthodontics. We specialize Invisalign braces in Leonia and general and restorative dentistry for those who wish to have straighter teeth. Invisalign braces are very popular with adults due to their low visibility and their ease of use. Invisalign is a good option for those who wish to have braces that can straighten teeth, but in a more low key manner than with regular braces, which are more visible.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike with traditional braces, there are no metal wires or brackets needed. Our braces in Leonia are created with state of the art 3-D computer generated graphics system to calibrate each piece of the brace set until a complete set is designed. Aligners may number as little as 12 or as many as 48, depending on the level of alignment needed. The first stage is given to each patient at the beginning of treatment, upon which the next is given after two weeks, and so on until the process is complete. Over time, teeth move to their desired position in a gentle and effective manner.
The great thing about Invisalign braces in Leonia is that they can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign can also be removed for special occasions such as weddings. Before your new braces are placed, we’ll do a comprehensive exam in order to establish an oral health baseline. A periodontal exam and an oral cancer screening may be ordered as well to ensure that the patient’s teeth are healthy enough. The treatment time of Invisalign varies, but usually takes about a year or more, depending on the level of treatment and alignment needed. Most patients are extremely happy with their results and their straighter teeth, and are very happy that they chose Invisalign.
