Invisalign In East Hanover NJ

Invisalign is one of the greatest inventions of modern times. Braces have been around for decades, and they always had the same problems for years and years. Metallic braces are ugly, uncomfortable and painful. Some other options have been presented over the years, such as clear braces and lingual braces, which solved some – but not all – of the problems related to metallic braces. Then .. Along came Invisalign to solve them all. Follow our guide to know all you need to know about Invisalign, and where to get Invisalign in East Hanover NJ.

How is Invisalign different than braces?

It is different in every which way possible. Traditional braces (and clear braces as well) are a system of brackets, wires and elastics that are attached to the outer surface of teeth. These exert a pulling motion so that the teeth move to the desired location. Invisalign has none of that. It is a system of clear, transparent molds called aligners. The aligners fit the outer surface of the teeth (without attachment) and apply pressure rather than a pulling motion to move the teeth.

Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces, only attached to the inner surface of the teeth. They are a better option esthetically, but still very uncomfortable to wear.

What problems did Invisalign solve?

You can see that invisalign solved some of the problems of traditional braces out of the gate, including:

  • Appearance:

    No longer have you to suffer from months and years of “metal mouth”. The aligners are practically invisible. Plus, you can remove them when you need to, such as when you want to clean your teeth, or when you have that special occasion when you have to look your best.

  • Comfort:

    One of the problems that most people complain about when it comes to braces is the constant cutting, scraping and injuries to the gums, lips and cheeks. Again Invisalign tackled that problem. The aligners are very comfortable to wear, and are smooth and highly polished so that they don’t injure your mouth.

Invisalign also solved a few other problems that you may not notice, such as:

  • Oral Hygiene:

    We know how brushing and flossing with braces is hard. As we said before, you can remove the aligners at will. So basically, you would be brushing and flossing your own teeth with nothing attached to them at all.

  • Accuracy:

    Traditional braces are quite accurate. However, there is still a – slight – possibility of error. None of that with Invisalign. The aligners are computer-made, improving accuracy to a great extent. In addition, you get a treatment plan video explaining all the details your teeth would go through in the process. In other words, what you see is what you get.
