Would you like to straighten your teeth in discretion and comfort? Invisalign, offered by your Galloway, NJ, dentists, Drs. Bhavin Patel, Daniel Ciechanowski, and Walter Finken, can do just that! An excellent alternative to metal braces, read on to learn what this orthodontic treatment can do for you.

Invisalign uses an innovative system to realign teeth gradually

In lieu of traditional metal brackets and wires, the innovative Invisalign system uses removable aligner trays to change the position of your teeth. These aligner trays fit snugly over your upper and lower teeth and apply the gentle, constant pressure needed to re-position teeth. Each tray in the series is worn for 20-to-22 hours per day for about two weeks.

The process starts with your Galloway dentist taking digital images, impressions, and X-rays of your mouth. The Invisalign company then creates a 3D model of your mouth by combining the digital files that it receives from your dentist. Manipulating these images shows how the aligner trays will gradually realign your teeth, allowing your dentist to see exactly what will happen when you wear your aligner trays. Once your dentist is satisfied with your treatment plan, the company will make your trays.

Discreet appearance is one of several Invisalign benefits

Metal braces call attention to your smile, but not necessarily in the way you want. Invisalign aligners are much less noticeable. In fact, the transparent trays are practically invisible when you place them over your teeth.

Additionally, Invisalign aligner trays can be removed whenever you need to eat or drink, preventing any need for diet restrictions. This removability also makes oral hygiene quite easy to maintain.

Finally, the trays can be removed for photographs, playing sports, or while attending a dinner, wedding, or another special event. Just remember to not have the aligners out of your mouth for too long—they should be in place for around 22 hours a day.
