Dr. Isaac Menasha is Linden's Top Invisalign® Dentist
Getting a straight smile used to be a matter of embarrassing metal work, with uncomfortable brackets and wires. When faced with this treatment path, is easy to understand why many patients with teeth alignment issues choose to deal with a less-then-perfect smile instead. However, with advancements in dental treatments, patients are no longer stuck with metal braces as their only choice for correcting teeth alignment and bite problems. If you are looking for clear braces with Invisalign® in Linden, NJ, Dr. Isaac Menasha can help.
Invisalign® is a system of clear plastic trays that snap over your teeth and move them into position. During your first appointment, Dr. Menasha will take molds of your teeth so that your trays can be custom-made to fit your smile during every phase of treatment. Invisalign® can be removed for meals and regular teeth brushing, but should be kept in place for 22 hours a day to ensure ideal results. Because Invisalign® uses plastic, smile-hugging trays to correct teeth crowding and gapping issues, it is:
• Discreet – It will be difficult for others to tell that you are wearing the trays at all
• Comfortable – There are no metal brackets to injure the inside of your cheeks or your gums
• Convenient – Your trays can be taken out during meal times, so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets or damaging your appliances
Invisalign® is also affordable. Many of our Linden orthodontic patients are pleasantly surprised to learn that cost of Invisalign® is similar to that of traditional braces. However, dental insurance coverage varies and it’s important to talk to Dr. Menasha and your insurance provider to go over costs and applicable coverage for this treatment.
Invisalign® vs. Other Clear Braces
While there are other options for discreet braces on the market, there aren’t many that can hold up to Invisalign®’s standard for comfort and convenience. Ceramic braces that claim to be clear are actually tooth-colored brackets and wires, which don’t completely blend in with your smile and can still cause discomfort to sensitive tissues on the inside of your mouth. And even these kinds of braces require the use of rubber bands around brackets, which can easily stain and discolor, causing them to appear overly-visible. Getting Invisalign® is the only way to achieve truly invisible and comfortable teeth straightening with clear braces.
How to Care for your Teeth with Invisalign®
The good news is that you don’t have to go out of your way to properly care for your oral health while wearing Invisalign. Because the trays are removable, you can brush and floss as you normally would – no special flossing aids needed to navigate around wires that run along the length of your smile. Should your clear trays require cleaning, they can be gently brushed with a toothpaste-free toothbrush and/or rinsed with mouthwash. Dr. Menasha will take time to explain all the ins-and-out of life with Invisalign® if this is your recommended course of treatment.
