Invisalign in Ramsey NJ

Derived from smooth polyurethane plastic, like whitening trays, Invisalign trays is an often-recommended treatment if you have teeth that are crowded or misshapen. You can also do it if you have issues with overbite, crossbite, underbite or spacing. The trays are very comfortable, and meant to be worn over your teeth. They’ll slowly align your teeth, and have no unsightly metal wires or brackets that need to be tightened every once in a while. The only thing you’ll need is a new tray every two weeks until your treatment is finished.

Procedure and benefits of Invisalign

The procedure for Invisalign is actually pretty simple. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and gums, as well as X-rays and bite measurements. Then, they’ll fit you with a tray and make a blueprint. When they see any potential adjustments that need to be done, they’ll send it away for customization. Each aligner should be worn for around two weeks, and approximately 20 hours per day.

With regular braces, you may experience pain, discomfort or even oral sores and injuries – the wiring and brackets are pretty harsh. You could also experience dental caries due to the fact that you aren’t able to brush and floss as well as you should. There may even be an issue of plaque buildup. Your teeth may become discolored, and you may find that you have issues eating certain foods.

With Invisalign, on the other hand, you can eat whatever you want, because its removable. Aesthetically, it’s much more appealing than braces, which does help with your appearance and confidence. You can also brush and floss without any issues.
