If you want straighter teeth but not a mouth full of metal, we have a solution for you. Dr. Jerry M. Strauss is pleased to offer Invisalign® clear aligners in Totowa, New Jersey, at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey.
What Is Invisalign® Treatment?
Invisalign treatment is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth. It is a system of clear, custom-molded orthodontic aligners used to gradually straighten teeth without the use of metal braces. The clear aligners are removable, giving you the benefits of traditional braces without the hassle or look.
How Does Invisalign Treatment Work?
During your initial Invisalign treatment consultation, our dentist will evaluate and take bite impressions of your teeth. Using 3D imaging technology, your bite impressions will be molded into a series of Invisalign aligners. After a few weeks, you will receive your first set of aligners. Approximately every two weeks after that, you will receive a new set of aligners. Your Invisalign treatment will last about one year.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Aligners?
There are many benefits of Invisalign aligners, including:
- They are clear: The aligners are almost invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing any attention to your mouth.
- They are removable: Eating, drinking and proper dental hygiene are easier since Invisalign aligners can be removed when needed.
- They are comfortable: Unlike metal braces, the aligners do not cause mouth irritation.
- Virtual treatment plan: The Invisalign system creates a 3D image of your teeth so that you can visualize the effects of the treatment before the process starts.
How Long Is the Invisalign Treatment Process?
The average Invisalign treatment takes approximately one year. About every six to eight weeks, you will need to have your progress checked at our office. During those visits, Dr. Strauss will tell you when to switch to a new set of aligners.
Am I a Good Candidate for Invisalign Aligners?
If you want straighter teeth without the look and feel of metal braces, you may be a good candidate for Invisalign aligners.
The clear aligners can help correct teeth that are widely spaced or overcrowded. More complex dental issues, including underbites and overbites, can also be correct with Invisalign aligners. We will examine your teeth and advise if Invisalign treatment is the right choice for you.
What Is the Cost of Invisalign Treatment?
In general, Invisalign aligners cost about the same amount as traditional braces. The cost will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed. Dr. Strauss will be able to give you a more specific estimate of the cost of your Invisalign® treatment after an initial examination of your teeth.
Can I Get Invisalign Treatment From Any Dentist?
No. Dentists and orthodontists interested in offering Invisalign aligners need to attend training before providing treatment. Dr. Strauss has completed the necessary training to be certified in Invisalign treatment and is allowed to offer the clear aligners at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey.
