Clear aligners are one of the orthodontic treatment options you can evaluate to achieve your improved smile. The big question is, are clear braces the right treatment option for me?

At Dr’s Martin and Ferraiolo’s office in Totowa New Jersey we have many years of experience utilizing clear aligners. There are many companies making aligners and we will select the system that is efficient and quick for you to achieve that wonderful smile.

Many patients can be treated with clear braces, but it’s always best to see us at 336 Union Blvd Totowa NJ to be evaluated if your dental goals can be achieved with clear braces. Depending on your treatment plan, you’ll receive between five and 20 clear aligners total, changing to a new set every couple of weeks.

This will gradually and discreetly straighten your teeth over time with easy maintenance and fewer appointments than traditional braces. At the end of treatment, you’ll keep a clear retainer to wear at night to maintain your beautiful smile!

Benefits of Clear Aligners over Metal Braces

  • Easier hygiene and maintenance. You’re able to take clear trays in and out when you eat and brush, which means there’s less of a chance for  cavities during orthodontic treatment.
  • Aesthetically-pleasing. Since clear trays are transparent and nearly invisible, you’ll have the benefit of smiling and talking without worrying about people seeing brackets or wires in your mouth.
  • Clear aligners fits well with most patients’ lifestyles. Aligners are easy to travel with and easy to change.
  • Time-saving benefits. Instead of monthly visits, we are able to dispense multiple trays at a time cutting down on the number of appointments needed to finish your smile.

Remember this: straightening your teeth is a dental procedure, and as with any health care decision, you want a licensed dental professional overseeing your treatment the entire time and performing regular check-ins to ensure most efficient and effective treatment. Braces that you receive in the mail from “as seen on TV” companies can’t do that.
