Get the smile you’ve always wanted with the help of this clear aligner system.
It’s amazing how even small crookedness and gaps between teeth can impact the health and appearance of your smile. Fortunately, our Turnersville, NJ, dentists Dr. Joseph Natoli and Dr. Vincent Scaringi are happy to work with teens and adults of all ages to provide them with discreet ways to straighten their smile. Invisalign offers our patients the freedom to fix crooked smiles when it's most convenient for them.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a series of clear, removable trays that are custom-made to fit over your upper and lower teeth to shift teeth gradually into their proper position. These braces are a revolutionary new way to straighten teeth without wires or brackets.
How does this nearly invisible aligner system work?
Every patient who is deemed a good candidate for Invisalign will receive their own unique series of clear aligners that are designed with their smile goals in mind. Each aligner is made to move teeth a certain amount so that over time the patient’s smile is straighter and more ideal. Our dentist will take impressions and submit this data to an Invisalign-approved lab, where they will make each aligner tailored to your specific smile goals.
Should I consider Invisalign?
Invisalign can be a great option for both teens and adults who are looking for a discreet way to straighten teeth without being self-conscious about their braces. Invisalign addresses everything from minor to more severe dental problems such as overcrowding, gaps between teeth, crookedness and other "bad bites".
However, Invisalign isn’t right for everyone. Those with more complex or severe malocclusions may need to go the traditional route, since metal braces offer our dentist more control over certain tooth movements that might not be possible with Invisalign.
Furthermore, Invisalign isn’t right for someone who isn’t going to wear their aligners as directed. Aligners should be worn for about 20 to 22 hours out of the day, only removing them to eat, drink, brush and floss.
How long will I need to wear Invisalign?
Your length of treatment will vary depending on the severity of your dental issues. Adults tend to have shorter Invisalign treatments. The average length of treatment for adults with Invisalign is about 12 months. Teens, on the other hand, may need to wear their braces for up to 18 months or longer.
