You may not have worn braces as a child for one reason or another, and as a result as an adult you have a crooked smile along with a misaligned bite. You might think it’s too late for you to correct these issues, but that’s not true at all! About a quarter of orthodontic patients are adults nowadays, and Dr. Gizachew can offer tooth-straightening treatments that don’t involve metal brackets and wires. Call us today to take the first step and schedule a consultation to discuss options for orthodontics in Brick Township, NJ.
At the beginning of Invisalign treatment, we’ll make multiple aligners for you out of clear plastic. Each aligner fits snugly over the teeth and slowly pushes them towards their ideal position. Once you’ve worn a set of aligners for about two weeks, you’ll move on to the next one. You need to keep the aligners in your mouth for at least 22 hours a day; however, you can take them out whenever you eat or need to brush your teeth. Invisalign is both a convenient and attractive alternative to traditional braces.
NU Smile Aligners are very similar to Invisalign in that they involve the use of clear aligners as a virtually undetectable orthodontic solution. The aligners themselves are designed and created based on a thorough examination of your mouth as well as detailed scans of your teeth and jaw. They’re extremely comfortable and easy to care for, especially when compared to traditional metal braces. Once you reach a result you’re satisfied with, we’ll give you clear retainers to maintain your beautiful new grin.
