Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen®
Invisalign is a method of orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom made, clear, removable teeth aligners to straighten teeth without using metal or wires. Patients wear a series of custom-made orthodontic aligners that are adjusted as their teeth shift. These aligners are worn each for a period of two weeks, as the aligner applies gentle pressure to straighten the teeth and progressively shift them into place. Many of our adult patients prefer to use Invisalign to straighten their teeth as these aligners are nearly invisible and relatively low maintenance. As the aligners can be removed during eating, patients do not need to modify their diet and the ability to remove the aligners make them easier to keep clean. The aligners are also very comfortable compared to traditional metal braces. For these reasons, Invisalign is the ultimate in aesthetics and comfort when it comes to orthodontic treatment for teens or adults. An average Invisalign treatment lasts about 12 months.
Dr. Ayoub is our Bergenfield Premier Preferred Invisalign Provider; a title only awarded to the Top 5% of Invisalign Doctors. As a family practice, we provide both standard Invisalign aligners and Invisalign Teen, and we have seen excellent results in patients of all ages.
ClearCorrect is another aligner system that is comfortable and discrete, and it is thought to share many of the same advantages offered by Invisalign. Every few weeks, patients will be given a new set of ClearCorrect aligners that will slowly shift their teeth into the ideal position.
Six Month Treatment
Many of our adult patients who come in for orthodontic treatment are busy professionals and do not have the time for lengthy treatment. In such cases, Dr. Ayoub is able to treat many adult orthodontic patients in about six months. To see if you are a candidate for this treatment, please contact our Bergenfield office to schedule a complimentary consultation.
For teens or adults concerned about “metal mouth,” we offer ceramic braces that are the same size and shape as metal braces, but come in varying levels of transparency, so you can have braces that mimic the color of your natural teeth. We use only high quality Clarity™ brand family of ceramic brackets from 3M Unitek that combine translucency, strength, and comfort.
Traditional metal braces are the most commonly prescribed type, especially for children. These braces consist of standard metal brackets that are adhered to your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. Periodic tightening of the wires is needed to apply pressure to gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.
We use among the smallest braces available in the market, which means your braces will be substantially less noticeable and easier to keep clean. The smaller size also means less discomfort to the inside of your mouth. And, although these braces are smaller in size than their larger counterparts, these smaller braces are made of a stronger grade of stainless steel, so you will not sacrifice strength or effectiveness for size.
Traditional metal braces are typically the least expensive option for properly aligning your smile. They have been proven to have an extremely high success rate (even when it comes to straightening very crooked teeth). They are also available in an array of different colors. Some patients enjoy the visibility of traditional braces, choosing to make a statement with brightly colored ligatures.
