Is Invisalign Right for Me?
posted: Jan. 24, 2019.
Invisalign clear aligner trays have revolutionized orthodontic treatment for teenagers and adults. Once upon a time, braces and conspicuous orthodontic appliances were just about the only option available to straighten crooked teeth and repair common bite and alignment problems. While getting braces might be something of a rite of passage for younger children, many older teenagers and adults are understandably reluctant to get braces for a number of personal and professional reasons, even if they eventually result in straighter teeth. However, thanks to Invisalign, an effective, minimally invasive, discreet, and convenient method is now available! Dr. Nainesh Desai and Dr. Warren Lorch, the dentists at Central Jersey Dental Arts in Piscataway, NJ, offer Invisalign for adult and teenage patients looking for a way to get straighter teeth, without traditional braces.
Straighter Teeth with Invisalign
The first step in determining if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule an appointment at our Piscataway office for a comprehensive dental exam. Every case is different, but Invisalign is typically a good option for people with the following types of malocclusions (bite issues):
- Cross bite
- Open bite
- Excessive spacing
- Crooked teeth
Although Invisalign is generally a good option for most mild to moderate bite issues, there are some instances where traditional orthodontics will be the more effective option.
Benefits of Invisalign
The main draw of Invisalign is the fact that they are virtually undetectable once in place. And because the trays are removable for up to two hours per day, you can continue practicing your normal oral health routine and eating the foods you enjoy without the dietary restrictions necessary with braces. In some cases, the treatment period for Invisalign is also shorter.
