Straighten Your Smile with Discreet Invisalign
If you are suffering from minor to moderate orthodontic issues, Invisalign® can help you achieve a straight, symmetrical smile without wearing conspicuous metal braces. Dr. Judith Mamah offers this innovative teeth straightening method to patients in the Hackensack, NJ, area. This advanced technique uses invisible, plastic aligner trays to move teeth into optimal position, so you can straighten teeth discreetly and comfortably.
Invisalign uses patented plastic aligners to provide a more comfortable, hygienic treatment experience compared to traditional orthodontics. These customized trays are removable for meals and daily oral hygiene, and each aligner is discarded after one or two weeks. In as little as a year, you can eliminate bothersome misalignment concerns, and enjoy a boost of confidence in your smile and appearance.
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign provides many benefits. Because they are removable, you can enjoy all of the foods you normally would eat, without restriction. You will also be able to more easily care for your teeth and avoid higher risk of decay. In addition, there are no sharp metal wires to irritate sensitive oral tissue, so you can expect to experience less discomfort during the treatment process.
Candidates for Treatment
Invisalign can correct most positioning problems, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Open bite
- Cross bite
- Rotated teeth
Most teen and adult patients are good candidates for Invisalign, but in rare cases, the dentist will recommend traditional braces to treat severe malocclusion. During a consultation, Dr. Mamah can examine your oral health and orthodontic concerns to determine if this treatment is best for you.
Treatment at Designing Smiles
The Invisalign process starts with a dental exam and assessment of your misalignment concern. Teeth must be clean and free of decay and active gum disease before beginning orthodontic treatment, and our dentists can address any issues with gentle dental procedures.
To design your custom Invisalign trays, our practice uses an advanced iTero® intraoral scanner. This painless process provides a clear, three-dimensional image of your teeth and bite. Once these scans are taken, your series of custom aligners can be created to gently shift the position of your teeth. Each tray will have a slightly different shape, and you will wear your aligners for a minimum of 21 hours a day, replacing them approximately every two weeks.
Dr. Mamah and her team have been delivering exceptional outcomes for many years, and can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
In most cases, Invisalign treatment provides desired results in 12-18 months, and many patients begin to see noticeable improvement as early as the first month. Dr. Mamah and her team have been delivering exceptional outcomes for many years, and can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
