Many adults who suffer with a bad bite face the decision of continuing to suffer with the malocclusion or walk around with a mouthful of metal and wire braces for a year or two. Traditional braces are just an unacceptable solution to a bite problem for many adults. Traditional braces are not the only solution for these malocclusion sufferers. Dental Group of Millburn can solve many bite problems without using wire braces by using Millburn Invisalign.
Developed by a team of Stanford University students, the advanced 3D imaging, modeling, and aligner technology that defines the Invisalign system of care was introduced to the public in the year 2000. Since that time, it has become an extremely popular option in care. Invisalign uses advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to formulate a sequence of custom-made clear aligners. The aligners, each of which is worn for a couple of weeks, incrementally move the teeth into place until the final desired corrections are reached. The advantage and appeal of the Invisalign method are that the clear aligners are more cosmetic, comfortable and convenient than other orthodontic appliances and operate with minimal interference to daily activities.
Millburn Invisalign has a couple of important advantages over traditional braces. The most obvious advantage is that Invisalign is not obvious. The clear plastic aligners fit snugly so that they are virtually invisible. No one can tell that you are in the middle of an orthodontic treatment when you smile. Another big advantage is that the aligners can be taken out to eat so the patient can eat anything without fear of ruining them, which is not the case with traditional braces that limit what can be eaten. Also being able to remove the aligners allows for much better tooth brushing and flossing. So if you need to correct a malocclusion but don’t want to wear traditional braces make an appointment with our office to see if Invisalign is right for you.
