Straighten Those Teeth Without a Metal Mouth!
Braces: no one wants them, but everyone wants their results. What about you? Have you ever thought about straightening your teeth but didn’t because of the stigma surrounding braces? If you thought teenagers felt bad imagine having braces as an adult!
Good news: you don’t have to imagine wearing braces as an adult anymore, at least not at Millburn Dental Arts. We’re proud to offer you a way to straight teeth without a single wire or bracket: Invisalign!
You might have heard of Invisalign before, but what do you really know about it? Invisible plastic trays that can just miraculously straighten your teeth? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But Invisalign has been around for nearly 20 years and has made a lot of people very happy with their smile!
What’s The Invisalign Process?
Are those crooked teeth finally due to be put in their place? We’ll help you take control of your smile starting with a comprehensive exam at our Millburn office. We need to be sure your teeth are good and healthy before we start talking Invisalign!
Once we know you’re a good candidate, or after any necessary pre-treatments, we’ll get a 3D model of your teeth. This process is completely painless and allows us to manipulate each individual tooth so we can get the exact smile you’re looking for!
We work with you to make your treatment plan one you’re happy with – we want the end of your treatment to really come with a “wow” factor!
Once we’ve modeled your treatment successfully we’ll send your digital impressions off to our Invisalign lab. They’ll build your first few aligners and have them sent to us. We’ll have you in for one final appointment where we’ll fit you with your first aligner and be sure you feel comfortable, then you’re ready to go!
The Treatment Itself
You’ll swap your current aligner for a new one every two weeks, and each aligner will move your teeth just a bit further than where they were. This goes on for as long as it takes to get your smile right, usually around six months to a year.
At the end of your treatment you’ll be able to look in the mirror and see the smile you always wanted. No metal involved. The best part? No one probably even noticed you were wearing Invisalign at all
Life With Aligners
It seems like they might be uncomfortable, right? Patient experience speak to the contrary! Invisalign aligners are easy to wear and don’t go any further than your gumline, meaning they’ll have minimal impact on your ability to talk.
Invisalign aligners might be removable, but you still need to wear the 22 hours out of the day. The good thing is that you’ll be able to remove them to eat and brush your teeth, leaving your day-to-day life uninterrupted by bulky metal braces!
Patients also worry that the aligners will be painful – you may have heard that braces can be extremely uncomfortable, especially after a tightening! Invisalign doesn’t force your teeth into such intense pressure and instead moves them slowly and regularly. This prevents the discomfort associated with traditional braces, leaving you with a pleasant experience from start to finish.
