Invisalign Offers Clear Dental Restorations


Adults and teens who desire a straighter, more beautiful smile, often avoid orthodontics out of fear of traditional braces. Adults are especially hesitant to correct their smile with awkward, unsightly metal orthodontics. At The Silverstrom Group, your Livingston cosmetic dentists, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom, offer Invisalign. WithInvisalign, patients receive the same results as they would with traditional orthodontics, without enduring uncomfortable metal braces. In today’s blog, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom explain how Invisalign can offer practically invisible smile restoration.


What is Invisalign?


Replacing traditional metal braces with clear plastic aligners, Invisalign will gradually and gently reposition your teeth. The process normally takes between six months and a year, depending on the patient’s needs and the severity of misalignment. The aligners must typically be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day to see the desired results in the estimated time frame.


Benefits of Invisalign


Unlike braces, Invisalign’s plastic aligners can be removed before meals and special occasions. There is no need to alter your diet or avoid sticky or hard foods. Removable braces also make brushing and flossing easy, allowing Invisalign orthodontic patients to maintain good oral hygiene. Many patients with traditional braces report gum and cheek irritation; with Invisalign, these aches and pains are substantially reduced or eliminated.


Invisible Dental Correction


If your teeth require straightening, schedule a consultation with your Livingston dentists. After an initial oral exam, Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will decide if Invisalign is the optimal choice for correcting your smile. Once you have been cleared for the procedure, photographs and impressions will be taken of your teeth. The records will be used to create a 3D model of your bite. A series of custom-made aligners will be then created based on this model and Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom’s professional recommendations. You will move on to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks. Soon, you will have a straighter smile with none of the discomfort of traditional orthodontics.
