If you have crowded teeth, gaps between your teeth, an overbite, an underbite or a crossbite, you may find yourself having ongoing dental issues. It can be difficult to keep food out of gaps between your teeth, and hard to floss crowded teeth. Traditional bracket-and-wire braces are one solution to these problems, but Dr. David Basar offers an alternative. Using a series of clear aligners, we offer Invisalign in Toms River, NJ.
Invisalign clear aligners look like transparent retainers, and they fit snugly over your teeth. You can remove them to eat your favorite foods, meaning there are no limits to your food choices and no major changes to your dental hygiene routine. Your friends and family may not even notice them, but they’re sure to notice the improvement in your smile!
It’s true that Invisalign treatments can give you beautiful, straight teeth, but these aligners don’t just help the esthetics of your smile. Crooked teeth make it easier for bacterial plaque to become trapped between your teeth, causing cavities, gingivitis and gum disease.
Crooked teeth can also lead to bite issues, teeth clenching and grinding, jaw pain and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. With straight teeth, it’s easier to take care of your whole mouth. You’ll find that your oral hygiene routine will have faster, better results. Similarly, straightening your teeth relieves functional problems caused by a bad bite (malocclusion). Overall, Invisalign treatment from our dentist in Toms River, NJ will improve not only the look of your smile, but also your overall oral health.
At Advanced Smile Dentistry, your first Invisalign consultation is always free! At this appointment, we’ll take scans of your mouth and determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign. Nearly all our patients are candidates, unless they have complex bite issues. At this point, we’ll create impressions of your teeth that Dr. Basar will use to create your personalized series of clear aligners. You’ll wear these aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, but you can remove them to eat and drink, as well as to brush and floss. Every few weeks, you’ll come into the office for a new set of aligners. We can also take care of your regular cleanings at these visits, which is one of the benefits of getting aligners made at the same place you go for your dental checkups. As you progress through the series of aligners, you’ll notice your teeth slowly moving into place, revealing your new smile. Many of our patients can achieve full treatment in as little as six months, though you’ll see your first results within a few short weeks!
