Invisalign & Other Clear Aligners in Wall Township
Invisalign, ClearCorrect & MTM Clear Aligners
Many people reach adulthood without ever receiving the orthodontic treatment that they need. Whether it’s due to financial hardships while growing up or never being made aware of oral health needs, a large percent of the population is faced with alignment problems and subsequent dental difficulties. For your benefit, Dr. Edward J. Dooley leaves no stone unturned when evaluating the state of a patient’s teeth and gums for Invisalign, ClearCorrect, or MTM, three popular alternatives to traditional orthodontics. If you suspect you need help reaching your smile’s full function and aesthetic potential, call us today!
3 Great Options to a Straighter Smile
Traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to help patients achieve their desired results. Over time, as these wires are adjusted, the patient’s teeth are moved into their ideal position, improving both appearance and oral health. Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and MTM all rely on clear alignment trays rather than metal brackets and wires.
These clear aligners are virtually undetectable to others during day-to-day interactions, allowing patients to enjoy greater discretion during the treatment process. Patients undergoing treatment with Invisalign, ClearCorrect or MTM wear their custom-made trays day and night, with each tray in the patient’s special treatment kit gradually shifting teeth into their correct position.
Besides being clear, all three options can be removed during meals and for brushing and flossing. This means that patients enjoy the same diet, and care for their smile just as they normally would. Compare this with the experience patients have with traditional braces. Certain foods become trapped in the wires of traditional braces, and both the brackets and wires of traditional braces can make brushing and flossing more difficult.
Clear alternatives like Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and MTM don’t need to be tightened the way traditional braces do. Instead, you’ll simply upgrade to the next aligner in your treatment kit. As a result, you won’t have to visit our Wall Township practice as often as you would have to for traditional braces. During your visits, we’ll simply check that your mouth is responding positively to the therapy. We’ll also be able to tell you the estimated time until your treatment is complete!
