Invisalign® Q & A

What is Invisalign? 

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth and gently shift them into the desired positions over time. 

How does Invisalign work? 

The Invisalign process begins with a comprehensive consultation at Dental Associates of NJ . Dr. Reff creates a personalized treatment plan and uses advanced technology to design a series of custom aligners. You change aligner sets every week or two as your teeth gradually move into a more aligned place.

What are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces? 

Invisalign offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Virtually invisible appearance
  • Comfort
  • Convenience
  • No need for dietary restrictions
  • Easy dental hygiene
  • Fewer dental visits

The clear aligners are discreet and won't draw attention to your treatment. They can also be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, allowing for easier oral hygiene maintenance. With Invisalign, there are no metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation.

Am I a candidate for Invisalign? 

Invisalign is an excellent option for many people with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as crowded teeth, gaps, and misalignment. The best way to determine if Invisalign is right for you is to schedule a consultation at Dental Associates of NJ.  Dr. Reff assesses your individual needs and discusses your treatment options.

How long does Invisalign treatment take? 

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies based on the complexity of your case. On average, achieving the desired results can take several months to a year or more. 

Usually, Invisalign corrects bite misalignments more quickly than traditional braces.* During your consultation, Dr. Reff will provide you with a customized treatment timeline.

Are there any restrictions with Invisalign? 

One of the great advantages of Invisalign is that there are minimal dietary restrictions because the aligners can be removed while eating. You can also remove them for sports play or photographs. However, it's important to wear the aligners for at least 20-22 hours a day to ensure effective progress.
