Invisalign Treatment in Lincoln Park
Invisalign treatment consists of clear, plastic aligners that help you adjust your smile over an extended period of time. Unlike traditional braces or retainers, they don’t require any wires or brackets. Instead, you receive a new tray every two weeks that will straighten your teeth little by little until they reach their ideal position. Invisalign can be worn in your everyday life without the clunkiness or discomfort of braces. Interested? Contact Comprehensive Dental today to schedule an Invisalign consultation with Dr. Samir Rana and his excellent team. We have a convenient location in Lincoln Park, NJ.
Am I eligible for Invisalign?
The only way to know for sure is to let a trusted professional like Dr. Rana perform an evaluation to see if your teeth would respond well to Invisalign. Invisalign treatment can correct a variety of issues including:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Overly crowded teeth
If your condition isn’t listed here, ask our team at Comprehensive Dental about it. Invisalign is constantly improving, so your teeth may be treatable now when they weren’t in the past.
The Invisalign Process
During your initial diagnosis, our team will assess your smile and determine how Invisalign can improve it. We’ll take X-rays, pictures, and impressions of your mouth to get an accurate representation of what needs to be adjusted. Invisalign will then use the data to make a virtual tour of your new smile. You’ll be able to see how your smile will improve with every stage of treatment. For most adults, Invisalign treatment takes about a year. For teens, the time span is similar to that of braces taking anywhere from one to three years. Our team can give you a more accurate timeline once your oral health is assessed.
When you start Invisalign treatment, the process is extremely easy to follow. As you wear Invisalign aligners throughout the day, teeth gradually shift into their new positions. Simply take off the aligners to brush and floss twice per day and when you eat. Every two weeks, you will have a new set of aligners that further adjust teeth.
What kind of upkeep is required for my Invisalign aligners?
Invisalign requires minimal care. Braces can be a hassle when you have to brush and floss between wires and around brackets cemented to your teeth. With Invisalign, you just scrub them with a toothbrush as you would your teeth. This only has to happen once a day, so you can choose whether you clean them at night or in the morning. If one of your Invisalign aligners breaks or is lost, immediately contact Comprehensive Dental and we will provide a replacement as soon as possible.
Patients from Montville, NJ and surrounding areas typically need to attend more frequent appointments at either of our locations when undergoing Invisalign treatment. This allows our team to view your progress and ensure that everything is going smoothly. Your individualized treatment plan will give you all the information you need for scheduling appointments and caring for aligners.
