Invisalign (Clear Braces)
We want you to feel great about the appearance of your smile!
If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, you might want to make some changes. Like many of our older teen and adult patients, you might find the idea of brackets and wires for years to achieve the perfect smile a big sacrifice.
Misaligned teeth affect more than your appearance. Crooked teeth are more likely to have decay and are difficult to restore properly.
At Magna Dental Care, we have a solution for people just like you. We offer Invisalign as a discreet alternative to traditional orthodontics.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can address a number of common orthodontic conditions including:
- Overlapping teeth
- A poor bite
- Overbites, under bites, and cross bites
- Gaps in your smile
- Protruding front teeth
In order to determine if Invisalign is right for you, we will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth and bite. At this initial exam, we can also discuss estimated treatment times, so you know what to expect.
The Invisalign Process
Once you decide to move forward with your new smile, we will take impressions, digital x-rays, photographs, and diagnostic images to send to the Invisalign lab, where they will create your clear aligners.
You will wear each set of aligners for around 2 to 3 weeks before switching to the next set in the series. Since Invisalign aligners are clear, most people will never notice you are wearing them and you can watch the changes in your own smile as you go.
We will schedule regular follow-ups at our Jersey City dental office to observe the progress of your treatment and make any necessary changes.
Once your treatment is complete, we will create an orthodontic retainer for you to wear in order to preserve your new smile. Without a retainer, teeth have a tendency to drift back to their original location.
Benefits of Invisalign
Because Invisalign is clear and removable, it has many benefits:
- You can remove your aligners to brush and floss your teeth.
- You can eat without the discomfort of brackets.
- They are clear and do not affect the appearance of your smile.
- Dental cleanings are easy.
- No need for special threaders or flossers.
- They are comfortable with no rough edges!
You should avoid hot beverages while you wear your aligners because the heat could distort them. You can place them back in your mouth after eating or drinking. Plan on wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day for the best results.
