Do you have teeth that are crooked, crowded, or gapped? Would you like to straighten your smile without bulky metal braces? If so, our dentist may recommend Invisalign®. Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that involves no metal brackets or wires; instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom made to fit your smile and make gradual changes to the alignment of your teeth. As you switch sets of aligners approximately every two weeks, your teeth will be gently guided to their proper positions. The aligners fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth, and because they are made of transparent plastic, they are also nearly invisible. Most people will not notice that you are wearing aligners! This makes Invisalign in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, a great choice for adults and other patients who are interested in a discreet orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are also removable, making it simple for you to remove them as needed to eat, brush, and floss.
In general, Invisalign can be used to correct the same orthodontic problems that are normally treated with braces. These may include:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Misalignment in the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite, or crossbite
To discover whether Invisalign is right for you, we encourage you to contact our office today to schedule an orthodontic consultation with Dr. Jessica Gorelik. We are eager to help you achieve the straight, healthy smile of your dreams!
