Straightening one's teeth can be done in several ways. The most preferred treatments are traditional braces and Invisalign, both have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Our dental team in SN Family Dental can help patients who are considering orthodontic treatment decide which is most appropriate for their specific needs. At our dental office, patients can straighten their smiles with solutions such as Invisalign.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that is used to achieve a more beautiful smile. It's a custom made aligner that is interchanged roughly every two weeks for a period of six to eighteen months or some time it takes longer depending on the severity of misalignment. It's mainly used by patients who have mild to moderate misalignment and also align the bite. Patients with an overbite, crossbite, or underbite can enjoy Invisalign Treatment in Newark.
Invisalign uses clear aligners developed from computer-generated images. An impression of your mouth is taken by our Dentist in Newark to change the position of your teeth. Once this is done, the first set of aligners will be custom fit to your mouth and you will be receiving a new set aligners every couple of weeks until the end of your treatment. Each aligner is manufactured so that the teeth are slightly straighter than the previous aligners. In the treatment process, you will be noticing that your teeth will be typically moved 1/10mm per tray. That's the reason when you put a new tray, the teeth in that tray are slightly straighter than your teeth are, and this places pressure on your teeth so that they get to match the next tray.
The Invisalign tray needs to be wear for about 20 hours a day. As wearing Invisalign for a long time will help your teeth to move to the final position for that particular tray. Our Newark Dentist Dr. Rai recommends removing your Invisalign at the time of brushing and flossing. You also need to brush your Invisalign trays at the time of brushing teeth. Once you're done with the final Invisalign tray it's time for a retainer. This needs to wear full time for 2 months and then we cut down to just while sleeping.
