As your trusted provider of orthodontic treatment in and around Piscataway, New Brunswick, and Bound Brook, NJ, we at the practice of Dr. Peter Clemente make it our goal to provide you with the widest range of treatments so that you’ll have one that perfectly fits your orthodontic needs and desires. While we’re proud to offer an assortment of high-quality braces, we’re also glad to offer you the alternative to braces – a revolutionary new orthodontic treatment, known as Invisalign.

 What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the over 100-year-old science of orthodontics to provide a brand-new way to straighten a patient’s smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes a series of customized, removable aligners to shift a patient’s teeth. These aligners are clear and virtually undetectable, making them able to provide a patient with a discreet orthodontic treatment.

How Does the Invisalign Process Work?

First, you’ll have to come visit your orthodontist in order to determine if you’re suitable for Invisalign. If you’re a candidate for Invisalign, we’ll take x-rays and impressions of your teeth in order to create a 3-D image. Invisalign will use its advanced computer technology to take this image and create a series of precisely-calibrated aligners that are designed to gradually shift your teeth over time.

You’ll be given anywhere from 12 to 48 sets of aligners. You’ll need to wear each set for two weeks in a designated order. After the two-week period is over, you’ll then wear the next set of aligners, continuing this process until you’ve worn all of them. After this, you’ll have achieved the straight smile that your orthodontist prescribed. It’s also important for us to note that while these aligners are removable, you’ll need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day for this orthodontic treatment to maintain its effectiveness.

Why You Should Choose Invisalign

Invisalign offers many different benefits over traditional orthodontic treatment, including, but not limited to, the following:

Invisalign’s aligners are clear and capable of providing you with a discreet orthodontic treatment. Others won’t even notice that you’re wearing them!

The aligners are removable, meaning that brushing is just as simple as ever. You won’t have to struggle to brush around the wires or brackets of braces; you can just remove your aligners and clean your teeth like normal.

Another benefit of the aligners being removable is that you don’t have to restrict your diet at all. With braces, a patient would have to avoid hard and sticky foods because of the fact that they may break or loosen the braces. With Invisalign, there’s no risk of breaking your orthodontics because you won’t be eating with them in.

Also, the aligners are very durable and they likely won’t require you to come in as much for maintenance or adjustments.

If you happen to grind your teeth during sleep, the aligners will act as a night guard to keep your teeth from grinding together.
