MInvisalign: Straight Teeth with Less Hassle

Though they get the job done, you may be hesitant to straighten your teeth with traditional metal braces for some of the obvious downsides, such as:

At Dental Spa of Broad Street in Clifton, New Jersey, our expert dentists Moise Nawlo, DDS, and Loay Shadid, DDS, recommend the Invisalign® system to get straight teeth with less hassle. Here we tell you more about this popular and innovative solution and outline some of Invisalign’s many benefits.

What is Invisalign?

After we meet with you to discuss your needs and goals and design a custom treatment plan for you, clear aligners are created that fit over your teeth during each phase of your orthodontic treatment. You’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks before you progress to the next one. All the while, your teeth are being moved into place.

What are Invisalign aligners’ key benefits?

Older teens and adults who want a hassle-free way to straighten their teeth love Invisalign aligners because of their many signature benefits, including:

They’re comfortable

Each of your clear aligners are made with an ultra-thin, pliable plastic that fits like a glove over your teeth. Unlike traditional braces with their hard metal and wire, Invisalign aligners are so comfortable, you may not even remember you have them on.

They’re removable

Gone are the days of getting food stuck in your braces or having to stay away from foods you love. Do you love pretzels or pizza? There’s no need to refrain or excuse yourself to the restroom to pick crust from your braces. Just pop your aligners out, stash them in their case, and enjoy your food! 

They’re easy

Just like you take the aligner trays out for eating, you do the same for brushing and flossing. This is a huge advantage over traditional braces, which usually stay on your teeth for about two years and greatly interfere with proper dental hygiene. With Invisalign, simply remove your aligners, brush, floss, and put them back in place. Easy!

They’re nearly invisible

That’s how they get the name Invisalign. Your clear plastic aligners aren’t noticeable and don’t draw any attention, so you can talk, smile, and interact with your friends and coworkers without anyone knowing. 

They’re almost maintenance-free

Except for cleaning them when you brush your teeth at night, there’s nothing to it. Another reason why men, women, and teens, prefer Invisalign is because there’s no long-and-detailed instruction sheet for taking care of them, and you won’t need to come in for check-ups as often as if you were wearing metal braces. 

Who is a candidate for invisalign? 

If you want a hassle-free way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is a great choice. It works best for teeth that are:

They’re also effective if you have bite issues, such as an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or open bite.
