Invisalign treatments are a teeth straightening system that includes plastic aligner trays instead of traditional metal brackets and wires. The plastic aligners are custom made for each patient, which allows them to fit onto your teeth perfectly. When the Invisalign aligners are worn as directed, they can bring about significant tooth correction in mild to moderate crowding and spacing problems. Our New Jersey office in Raritan and Bridgewater, 08869 offers Invisalign.
Clear plastic aligners have been used to move teeth for many years in the world of dentistry. However, those older plastic aligner systems didn’t have the technology that Invisalign has. Invisalign uses a computer program designed the generate a series of alignment trays with incremental changes that continually shift your teeth to the desired position without pain, or embarrassing appliances.
Invisalign aligners must be worn almost around the clock for best results. Most patients wear their aligners about 22 hours a day. Your aligners can be taken out to brush your teeth and to eat but should be worn at all other times to get optimal results.
Most patients wear each Invisalign tray for about two weeks and then change to the next tray. Treatment lengths average between for 12-24 months depending on the amount of correction needed. Shorter or longer treatments are available if needed.
People who are old enough to be responsible with aligner use — typically those who are in adolescence or adulthood — are usually the best Invisalign candidates. People who need or want straighter teeth alignment with the least amount of difficulty are great candidates for Invisalign.
