Invisalign® and Your Smile

By | Invisalign | No Comments

If you want to align your bite but are unsure about the best way to do it, look no further. Invisalign® clear aligners have many amazing benefits that will make the alignment process easy and set your smile up for life.

Invisalign is a beautiful system designed to align your smile in a subtle and convenient way. These clear aligners are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth. Every six weeks, you’ll get a set of three aligners, each of which you will wear for a period of 2 weeks. Over time, these aligners will gently shift your teeth into the ideal alignment.

Invisalign aligners are clear and very thin, making them difficult for others to know when you have them on. Simply snap them on and off when you want to eat. That way you can eat your favorite foods without worrying about your orthodontic appliance. You can also clean your teeth thoroughly and easily before you put the aligners back in your mouth. Invisalign needs to be worn for at least 22 hours per day in order to stay on track for your treatment period.

If you are ready to have a smile you can be proud of, or have questions and would like to learn more, please call Dr. Muhammad Abey today to book an appointment at 973-341-3180. Our friendly staff is happy to help you achieve positive oral health.

How Invisalign® Can Aid Your Smile

For those that have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, traditional braces are not the only option. If you would like to straighten your teeth without the use of metal brackets and wires, consider Invisalign® in Wayne, New Jersey. Invisalign is a series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that straighten the teeth over time. Each set of aligners is worn on the teeth for about two weeks.

Invisalign has several advantages over braces. While traditional braces require brackets and wires that can mar the appearance of your smile, Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible. The wires of braces can poke the inside of your mouth, causing irritation. Invisalign aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic. Brushing and flossing can be time consuming with braces, but Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can brush and floss as you normally do. Those who wear braces cannot eat certain foods, like bubble gum, popcorn, and sticky foods. However, with removable Invisalign aligners, you can continue to eat your favorite foods.

One of the most common dental treatments that people get today is braces to correct their smile or another problem with their palate. They can have a profound effect on the lives of the people who receive them, improving their self-image and dental health in the long term. Dental braces are such a common treatment because of the wide variety of oral problems they can fix today.

Braces have the ability to correct crooked teeth and misaligned bites. They help correct structural issues that can make it difficult to eat or speak. Developmental issues that need correcting in children can be completely reversed by braces, allowing them to grow up with healthy teeth, jaws, and self-esteem.

With so many positive benefits, it’s no wonder how often they are used by the widest variety of people today. The improvements made over the years make braces more appealing and a more feasible option for some who had second thoughts before. Innovations in braces technology mean that more people can have access to braces and have more options to choose from. Here are some available varieties of braces.

Traditional Metal Braces
These are the braces most people are familiar with. Everyone remembers a friend growing up, if not yourself, with the metal braces attached to your teeth to straighten them. They are very strong and still the preference of dentists because of their amazing corrective power. They remain the most common braces even today.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are a new twist on their metal counterpart. Many of the parts are the same. They are fastened to the teeth the same and still have great corrective power, but they are the color of your teeth so they allow for a more natural appearance for people who may be self-conscious about the metal braces.

Clear Plastic Braces
Braces like Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® have surfaced recently and are targeted towards an older audience. Teenagers and adults like the fact that they are clear and can’t be seen easily, but they are still correcting their teeth. They are not as strong as the previous two mentioned, but they still work over time by gently using pressure to nudge your teeth into the correct place.
