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):

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • 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.

Have you been wondering what Invisalign from your Piscataway dentist could do to fix your crooked smile?invisalign

If you have crooked teeth you may feel as if people are looking at your smile more than listening to what you have to say. It can feel rather frustrating when a less-than-ideal smile seems to overshadow you. While we hate to admit it, appearance does have a way of affecting how we feel about ourselves. Luckily, our Piscataway, NJ, prosthodontist, Dr. Nainesh Desai, has a simple way for teens and adults to get the smile they want without the need for traditional braces.

What is all this talk about Invisalign and why are so many people choosing to get this orthodontic system? There is a reason Invisalign is so popular among older teenagers and adults. Besides achieving that perfectly straight smile, here are some other reasons so many people are turning to Invisalign:

It’s Comfortable

It seems like no contest to choose clear, flexible material over tough metal, right? While metal braces are certainly resilient, they also aren’t the most comfortable. Traditional braces can certainly be irritating at times. Thankfully, these custom-made aligners from Invisalign will fit snugly but they shouldn’t cause the same discomfort.

It Fits Right Into Your Life

Whether you just started college or you’ve been out in the professional world for a while now, everyone has their routine. It can sometimes be startling and stressful to break up that routine; fortunately, Invisalign won’t affect your everyday life very much. It’s easy-to-wear; simple-to-maintain approach means it won’t cramp your style. Enjoy eating your favorite foods without worrying about damaging those wires or brackets.

It’s Nearly Invisible

This is the most obvious benefit and yet one we shouldn’t forget. Having braces that are able to shift your teeth into their ideal position without other people staring or noticing is a major advantage. These thin, removable trays will make your treatment discreet.

Do you think you are the perfect candidate for Invisalign? If so, call Central Jersey Dental Arts in Piscataway, NJ, today to find out what we can do for you and your smile.
