What Is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of wires, metal brackets, and rubber bands, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic “aligners” to correct your smile. These aligners fit tightly over your teeth, and gently apply pressure to move them into the proper position, just like braces.
By switching through a series of aligners, Dr. Uddin can correct almost any issue with your smile, and provide you with the beautiful, healthy teeth you deserve. Invisalign is also very comfortable, removable to brush and floss, and is almost completely invisible when worn.
The Invisalign Treatment Process
After you’ve committed to your Invisalign treatment, you’ll come to our office for a 3D scan of your mouth. Dr. Uddin will send this scan to Invisalign, and then work with the Invisalign team to develop your treatment plan and build your first few sets of aligners.
Picking up your aligners
Once your first several sets of aligners arrive at Florham Park Smile Lounge, you’ll come back to pick them up and get instructions on wearing them from Dr. Uddin. You’ll usually wear each set for two weeks at a time, and you should wear them for 20-22 hours a day.
Checkups and continued treatment
Every six weeks or so, you’ll come back to our office. Dr. Uddin will check your progress, then give you a few more sets of aligners, along with instructions on how to wear them. This will continue until your treatment is over, which usually takes about 12 months.
Common Issues Invisalign Can Fix
Invisalign can correct a wide variety of bite issues including underbites, overbites, and crossbites. With Invisalign orthodontic treatment for bite problems, you can enhance your appearance and protect your oral health, too.
If your teeth are crooked, crowded, or uneven, Invisalign is a great choice for you. Invisalign can correct the alignment of your teeth and provide you with a picture-perfect smile.
Gaps between teeth
If you have a gap between your front teeth or uneven spaces between any other teeth, Invisalign is a great option. Using Invisalign, Dr. Uddin can easily correct the position of your teeth and eliminate gaps in your smile.
