Invisalign Treatment in NJ

Invisalign is a clear, removable aligner that provides a virtually invisible solution for straightening your teeth. With Invisalign, you can smile confidently during and after the treatment, making it an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. With over 20 years of experience, the technology has been perfected into the world’s most advanced clear aligner.

How Does Invisalign Work?

  • Invisalign treatment is divided into a series of aligners that are to be used by the patient at all times except when eating or brushing teeth. Each set is to be worn for approximately 2 weeks, depending on the patient’s teeth.
  • As you keep replacing the aligners, your teeth will get straighter week by week. Each aligner must be worn for the prescribed amount of time until the teeth reach their final position.
  • During the treatment, you will come in every few weeks to ensure that progress is going as planned.
  • On average, the Invisalign treatment lasts for almost 9-15 months. During this time, the average number of aligners patients use is 18 to 30.
  • You can cut treatment time by half if you combine Invisalign with Propel and Acceledent devices, which can be worn each day for 20 minutes. These devices accelerate the movement of teeth with gentle vibrations.

An advantage to Invisalign is that these clear aligners are removable so you can keep eating your favorite foods and keep your teeth and gums healthy by keeping up your regular cleaning practice. By visiting Harmony Dental Arts in New Jersey once a month during your treatment we will ensure you are using the correct size aligners and that you achieve excellent results as fast as possible.

Most Common Conditions Treated by Invisalign

Invisalign is a suitable solution for many dental issues, whether you want to straighten your teeth or have more complex dental challenges. Invisalign can even be a suitable solution for growing children. Following is an overview of the most common conditions Invisalign addresses:

  • Overbite – upper front teeth close in front of the lower teeth
  • Underbite – lower teeth protrude past upper front teeth
  • Crossbite – upper and lower teeth do not line up
  • Gap teeth – extra spaces between teeth
  • Open bite – top and bottom teeth do not close
  • Crowded teeth – teeth do not fit normally as there is not enough space in the jaw
  • Baby and permanent teeth – phase 1 orthodontic treatment for growing children
  • Crooked teeth – to straighten teeth in general

During your first consultation at Harmony Dental Arts in Clifton New Jersey, our expert doctors will determine if Invisalign is the best solution for your dental issues.

Invisalign Pros and Cons

Pros:

  • Our orthodontist will develop a personal treatment plan and will provide you with customized clear aligners that will gradually move your teeth to their final position.
  • Unlike some alternative mail-order systems, you will be evaluated by our board-certified orthodontist in person at our office in Clifton, New Jersey. This is of vital importance to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment.
  • The Invisalign aligners are clear, comfortable and designed to appear nearly invisible when worn.
  • Invisalign aligners and retainers can be easily removed when eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth.

Cons:

  • You will need to physically visit the office in Clifton every couple of months throughout the treatment. This is necessary to monitor the treatment and correct any issues if need be.
  • Invisalign is not for everyone. In some cases, clear aligners will not solve your dental condition. Our skilled orthodontist will examine your teeth and determine if you need other braces or procedures to address your aesthetic concerns.
