Why Choose Invisalign?

What your Morristown, NJ, can tell you about Invisalign

If you think that getting orthodontic treatment is just for children and teenagers, you might be surprised to learn that many of the patients seeking straighter teeth or orthodontic treatment are adults. Braces might be a regular right of passage for children, but adults face a number of different challenges and concerns when it comes to orthodontic treatments, like the professional and social stigma of wearing metallic wire braces for two years.

Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly with Invisalign

But choosing between necessary orthodontic treatment and traditional braces is no longer the only option for adults. Invisalign clear aligner trays gently shift your teeth into the desired alignment over a period of approximately 15 months, no wires, rubber bands, or metal brackets required! Dr. Jay Schuster, a preferred Invisalign provider in Morristown, NJ, recommends Invisalign for adults who prefer a discreet and subtle option to traditional braces.

How Invisalign Works

The Invisalign system consists of a series of custom designed removable trays that gradually shift your teeth into the correct alignment, just like traditional braces. In addition to being clear and practically invisible, Invisalign has a number of additional benefits over metallic braces. The trays are removable for up to two hours a day, which allows you to continue eating as you normally would, without the need to cut out specific foods and drinks. You can also continue to brush and floss regularly, which helps to decrease your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks, and then replaced with the next one in the series. Depending on your specific orthodontic needs, treatment with Invisalign may be shorter than with traditional braces.
