Invisalign Provider in Millburn, NJ
If you’re looking for Invisalign in New Jersey, visit us at Holistic Dental Center. We are a holistic dental practice that offers a wide range of dental services. We believe in providing our patients with high-quality care while ensuring their overall health and wellbeing.
Many of our patients strive to have perfect, straight teeth, and therefore we are proud to be their Invisalign provider.
Is Invisalign Holistic?
Yes! Having straight teeth is not only important aesthetically but also contributes to your overall health. Straight teeth allow you to clean your teeth more thoroughly, decreasing your risk for periodontal disease. Unlike braces which use metal and harsh wires and attachments that irritate your mouth and cause pain, Invisalign uses smooth, BPA-free plastic which is comfortable and non-toxic.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, which use metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is virtually invisible. The discreet look of Invisalign makes it ideal for adults and teens looking for a more subtle way to improve their smiles. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for each patient, and they gently shift teeth into the desired position over time. The aligners are worn for 20-22 hours per day, and they are designed to be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing.
How Does Invisalign Work?
To begin the treatment process, patients will first need to schedule a consultation. We will take digital scans, photos, and x-rays of the teeth to create a custom plan for treatment. Once the treatment plan is made, your upper and lower teeth are fitted for the clear aligners. The aligners are worn almost all the time, even while sleeping, up to 20-22 hours per day. The aligner trays are designed to be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Patients will need to visit our office for progress checks every 4-6 weeks.
Invisalign clear aligners can treat several orthodontic problems, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
The teeth straightening process with Invisalign treatment typically takes 6-15 months, though every case is different. The amount of time you need to continue treatment with Invisalign will depend on the severity of your misalignment and how well you follow the treatment plan. During your initial consultation, your dentist will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of how long Invisalign will take for you. Even though the length of treatment can vary, all patients are thrilled with their results and find that the process was well worth it.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Invisalign vs. Metal Braces
Invisalign offers several advantages over conventional braces, including:
- Greater discretion: Invisalign is transparent and practically undetectable, so you can function normally without feeling embarrassed.
- Shorter treatment time: Invisalign is typically much quicker than braces or orthodontic treatments.
- Fewer office visits: Invisalign does not require as many office visits as braces. We only need to see you every few months, but braces require an office visit every six weeks.
- Greater Comfort: No metal brackets that irritate your lips like traditional metal braces. Instead, the Invisalign trays are smooth and made of plastic. Most importantly, Invisalign is metal-free, eliminating the risk of allergies.
However, there are also some disadvantages to Invisalign treatments, including:
- Compliance: You should wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day for optimal outcomes.
- Case dependent: Invisalign may not be sufficient for severe alignment correction.
