Have you ever looked at your smile and wondered if there was an easy way to achieve straighter teeth or to close a gap?
Maybe brackets and wires feel like too big of a commitment to you.
We completely understand. That is why Dr. Harsh Shah has introduced an innovative technology at our Ringwood, NJ dental office. Invisalign is the most effective way to move teeth into more esthetic alignment without the need for traditional braces that require brackets and wires.
Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign aligners are not braces at all! They are clear plastic aligners that fit snugly over your teeth and gradually move them into a more ideal position.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable, making them an extremely convenient treatment option:
- You can clean your teeth normally.
- You can remove your trays for a professional dental cleaning.
- The aligners are smooth and less irritating to delicate tissue.
- They are clear, so no one can see them when you smile or talk.
- The trays use constant pressure, so you can avoid uncomfortable “tightening” appointments.
- You can actually see your progress as you go.
- Invisalign works for most orthodontic conditions in teens and adults.
Invisalign makes orthodontics easier for many of our patients and gives them great results!
Invisalign Orthodontic Treatment
After an evaluation with Dr. Shah, we will take impressions of your teeth, along with x-rays and photos, so that he can create a treatment plan just for you. We will send your information to our Invisalign lab where they will create your aligner tray series from BPA-free plastic.
Dr. Shah will recommend how long to wear each set of trays before switching to the next set – usually about 2 to 3 weeks. You should wear your trays for most of the day, removing them only to eat, drink hot beverages, and clean your teeth. Wearing them as much as possible will keep your treatment on track.
Regular dental exams with Dr. Shah will ensure that your treatment is progressing smoothly. He will make any adjustments necessary to ensure great results! Once you complete treatment, you will need to wear an orthodontic retainer to keep your teeth in place. At first, we will ask you to wear the retainer all day and night, just like your aligners. Eventually, you will be able to wear it only at night.
Avoid leaving your trays in a hot car and clean them only with lukewarm water. Heat can cause them to distort and no longer fit properly.
