Are you embarrassed because you have crooked teeth or spaces in your mouth that are visible when you talk? Don't want to deal with metal braces to correct these defects? At Little Family Dentistry in Bayonne, NJ, we pride ourselves on being a certified Invisalign provider for patients living in our area who want a beautiful smile without the hassles of wearing traditional braces.
Invisalign, What Is It?
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment for, both children and adults who want to straighten their teeth without hampering their appearance, because they are virtually invisible. Invisalign are a series of molded, custom-made, transparent, removable aligners that reposition your teeth in sequence. They can be removed before eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable and convenient to wear. With traditional braces, patients experience mouth abrasions caused by metal and wires. The best part is that appointments to adjust your traditional braces aren't needed ever!
What Does Invisalign Correct?
A few dental issues Invisalign can fix are:
- Spaced Teeth occurs due to abnormal growth of your jawbone or by teeth shifting due to space caused by missing teeth. Spaced teeth can lead to an increased risk of gum disease.
- Overly Crowded Teeth– occurs when there is a lack of space for all of your teeth to fit normally inside your mouth. Overly crowded teeth over time can worsen and lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
- Crossbite/Underbite – Crossbite is when both the upper and lower jaws are uneven. One or more upper teeth cause you to bite on the inside of the lower teeth, which can lead to abnormal tooth wear and chipping. Underbite is when the lower teeth jut over the front teeth.
How Do They Work?
At Little Family Dentistry , we use 3-D imaging computer that will design a dental treatment plan that allows our patients the ability to see the outcome before they start the treatment. Then a skilled lab will create a sequence of aligners that will reposition your teeth over the course of one to two years. An appointment is made every two weeks, to check up on your progress and to give you the go-ahead for the next level in the series.
