Are you regretting the fact that you never had braces as a child? Do you wish that you had a beautiful, straight smile? If so, you will be happy to learn that there is an orthodontic treatment that is also known as “invisible braces.” This treatment option is called Invisalign, and it is a great way to have your teeth straightened without using traditional braces. Many patients come to our practice, Brunswick Family Dental and Implant Center, to get Invisalign in East Brunswick.
At our dental practice we are very happy to have several expert and highly-trained dentists on staff. At our practice we specialize in preventive, cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry, including treatment with Invisalign in East Brunswick. Invisalign is actually a collection of clear plastic aligners that are worn instead of traditional braces. Each Invisalign system is custom-made for a specific patient and their own individual smile situation. A set of aligners can consist of anywhere between 20 and 35 aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks. The Invisalign system is so popular because no one is able to tell you are wearing it; it is virtually invisible. Invisalign allows patients to go to work meetings and to attend social situations in total confidence. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same time as treatment with traditional metal braces. Not all correction problems qualify for Invisalign treatment; during a consultation with our dentist, he or she will be able to tell you if Invisalign will work in your particular situation.
Invisalign in East Brunswick is also popular because of other benefits that it offers. Patients are allowed to eat anything they like during treatment with Invisalign because the aligners are removed before eating. The Invisalign aligners are also removed so you can thoroughly brush and floss your teeth each day. Otherwise the aligners are worn during the day and while you sleep. The system is completely comfortable to wear. When you are starting with a new aligner, you may feel slight pressure for the first two days. This lets you know that the Invisalign system is working, and that your teeth are being slowly moved into their proper position.
