There was a time when your only option for correcting uneven smiles was metal braces. Thankfully, at The Silverstrom Group, we now offer a practically invisible alternative. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, use a fun quiz to discuss the benefits of Invisalign clear braces.
Livingston Clear Smile Correction Quiz
1. True or False: Invisalign doesn’t use metal brackets and wires.
2. True or False: The aligners can be removed before meals.
3. True or False: Your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists offer Invisalign Teen.
4. True or False: The Invisalign system requires fewer office visits.
Answer Key
1. True. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners. The aligners are custom-made, providing more comfort than traditional metal braces. The patient wears the aligners between 20 and 22 hours a day, upgrading to a new set about every two weeks. Over the course of a year, your smile will be gradually and gently improved.
2. True. This means our patients don’t need to alter their diets or avoid certain foods. With braces, food can damage or become stuck in your orthodontics. With Invisalign, you no longer need to worry about breakage or food becoming caught in your braces. Removable aligners also makes thorough brushing and flossing easier, improving oral hygiene.
3. True. Invisalign provides up to six replacement aligners in case your teen loses or misplaces his/her current set. Each aligner will also contain a small blue dot that wears away if the aligners are worn properly. For teens, the entire process may take up to 18 months.
4. True. On average, your will only need to see your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists once every six weeks. This saves our patients time and money.
