Invisalign

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear appliances that look and feel similar to bleaching trays. Each aligner is worn for approximately one week and slowly moves teeth. Teeth are eventually positioned into their appropriate position as planned per stage. It is extremely convenient due to the fact that we give you multiple aligners each visit, so rather than coming in to the office every four to six weeks, your visit can be extended into every other month intervals or more.

Why Invisalign?

Patients who use Invisalign experience several advantages over traditional braces such as:

  • The freedom to eat and drink what you like
  • They are virtually invisible
  • Normal oral hygiene without the need or use of an orthodontic wire. 
  • Normally less cavities post treatment. 
  • Less frequent office visits for those with busy schedules.
  • Often considered more comfortable, without wires or brackets
  • Added benefit of whitening your teeth during treatment with the trays, if you would like.
  • Ability to remove aligners for special occasions if necessary.
  • No poking wires or brackets and no need for wax!- soft tissue is normally not impacted by the aligners.

More Information

  • You should wear your aligner at all times, except when eating or brushing
  • Keep aligners in the case (provided) anytime the aligners are not in your mouth.
  • Clean the aligner twice daily by running cold water over the, every morning and night. You may also use a denture cleaner to clean the Invisalign aligners.
  • Keep aligners away from hot temperatures including hot water, car dashboards, microwaves, etc.
  • Practice speaking whenever you change aligners, as it may slightly impact your speech for a few hours.

Invisalign, in general, does not cause pain, however, some patients may experience temporary discomfort the first few days after a new aligner is fitted. This is caused by the minor movements and bone regrowth around the teeth.

Of Course!  There have been hundreds of thousands of happy patients who have used Invisalign.  If you are willing to wear the aligners as advised, invisalign will do all the work for you! However, it is important to work with an experienced Orthodontist, because invisalign requires experience and a great knowledge regarding the biology behind tooth movement.

Invisalign works best for people with mild to moderate crowding or spacing, and relatively well aligned jaws. Large skeletal discrepancies, such as sever overbites, underbites, or open bites should be treated with a combination of other appliances. We offer a free consultation to assess your smile and goals.

Invisalign Teen

What Is Invisalign Teen?

Between school, sports, and friends, teens have a lot going on during a busy day. With a hectic day, parents know that things inevitably get lost. A true advantage of Invisalign Teen is that it comes with up to six replacement aligners at no charge. That way, if one or five aligners go missing, the replacement charge doesn’t have to come out of the parent's pockets.

INVISALIGN TEEN

Invisalign Teen aligners, offered at our Montvale Orthodontics, differ from regular Invisalign aligners because they allow space for your teen's molars to continue growing.

Itero Digital Scanner

All of Our Invisalign Cases Use a Digital Scanner

We use the most accurate scanning technology to create your treatment plan for both Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. You no longer need to use the putty that only few enjoy.

iTERO

No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, your orthodontist can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. The new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
Also, iTero scanner enables us to provide Invisalign care to our patients more efficiently.

How Does it Work?

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once an orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.

Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures.

Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. Though we do still take some alignate impressions, the iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.
