Dentist at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey explains the benefits of using Invisalign® clear teeth aligners to correct common orthodontic issues.
Morristown, NJ – Advances in the field of orthodontics have yielded a number of solutions to an issue that is common among people who are wary of treatment: the prominent appearance of metal brackets and wires along their teeth. While many people would like to correct what may be lifelong teeth misalignment issues and bite problems, the noticeability of traditional metal braces can often serve as an obstacle they are not willing to tolerate. With that in mind, the Morristown dentists at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey say options such as Invisalign® can provide a number of individuals with discreet treatment and beautiful results.
Invisalign® is a system of clear plastic teeth aligners custom-designed to help patients improve a range of orthodontic issues. Once an impression of the patient’s teeth has been made, a series of aligners is created. The aligners are worn for a two-week period and then changed out for the next in the series. Each set of aligners is slightly modified from the previous set, helping to gradually move the teeth into a more desirable position. Candidates for Invisalign® are typically those who have mild to moderate levels of crowded teeth, gaps and spaces, and even bite irregularities. Drs. Edward Romano and Robert Bizzarro say Invisalign® offers a number of benefits when compared to traditional braces, including:
- The aligners are virtually invisible along the teeth
- They are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing
- They do not typically require excessive trips back to the dentist for maintenance
- They are designed to fit as comfortably as possible on the teeth
- They can often produce results in less time than can be achieved with other orthodontic techniques
When it comes to Invisalign® versus traditional braces, the doctors say another benefit of the plastic aligners is that they don’t involve metal brackets and wires that can scratch against the lips and cheeks. On the other hand, the doctors say, metal braces may be necessary for individuals who have more severe signs of teeth misalignment or bite issues. They also note that Invisalign® patients must not forget to wear the aligners throughout most of the day (about 22 hours); otherwise, the results may be affected.
Overall, the dentists at Aesthetic Smiles of New Jersey say the best way for individuals to find out if Invisalign® is a good option for their needs is to see an experienced dental professional for a comprehensive oral evaluation. They note that Invisalign® can often be an ideal solution for both adults and teens who are looking to straighten their teeth without the cosmetic effects and other drawbacks associated with traditional braces.
