Are your teeth as straight as you want them to be? Are they crooked and unattractive? You may have been tempted to come to our Cliffside Park dental office, but you were put off by the prospect of wearing braces. We all remember that braces mean a bunch of metal wires clogging up your mouth, making you look and feel awkward, and causing you all manner of inconvenience. So, what to do?
Invisalign is the answer when you find yourself looking to straighten your teeth and restore your bite. Using advanced 3-D computer technology, Invisalign corrects your crooked or misaligned teeth and does it without the old fashioned metal braces that you dread wearing. Our Cliffside Park dental office is pleased to offer Invisalign, a clear aligner that is undetectable to the eye. Our dentist, Dr. Michael B. Schwarz will employ the Invisalign system to craft you a set of aligners that are designed to fit you perfectly.
Depending on your unique situation, Dr. Schwarz will prescribe as few as 12 or as many as 48 Invisalign aligners to straighten your teeth. Each one is specific to a stage of the process. Beginning with the first aligner, you will wear each one for about two weeks, all day and all night, every day before moving on to the next aligner in the set. You keep them in all the time except for when you eat, brush, and floss. They even stay in your mouth while you sleep, all the while working to straighten your teeth. Each aligner will be custom fit at our Cliffside Park dental office.
Misaligned teeth are a cosmetic issue, but they are more problematic than just affecting your appearance. It is harder to floss between crooked teeth and often this leads to plaque and tartar forming. Eventually, tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease are the inevitable result. So it’s a health issue, also. At our Cliffside Park dental office, we are concerned with your health and your appearance. Invisalign solves both sides of that problem and it does so with comfort- easily and effectively. And invisibly!
