What is Invisalign, and how does it work?

At Grand Dental Arts, we know how important a beautiful smile can be. We also understand that not everyone has a naturally aligned smile, either. Thanks to solutions such as orthodontics, patients with malocclusion and poor bite alignment can achieve results without conventional metal braces. Instead, Dr. Colleen Williamson of Grand Dental Arts in Toms River, New Jersey, may educate patients on the advantages of alternative orthodontic services called Invisalign. If you would like to learn more about using Invisalign for gaps, bite alignment, and crooked teeth, now is the time to work with an Invisalign dentist to determine if you are a clear candidate for this revolutionary way of repositioning the teeth.

What is Invisalign?

Our team describes Invisalign as a way of straightening the teeth in the smile without unsightly metal bracket-and-wire braces. Instead, aligner trays move teeth gently into position. Patients who are the best candidates for Invisalign are those who have mild to moderate malocclusion and smiles free from periodontal disease and tooth decay.

How does Invisalign work?

Dr. Williamson of Grand Dental Arts describes Invisalign as clear aligner tray therapy. Using plastic trays fabricated from 3D digital impressions of the smile, patients can reposition their teeth within the smile to address bite alignment, crooked teeth, and gaps that are present. With each tray, patients gradually move the teeth with proper compliance. Each tray is worn for one week when the patient then takes the next tray in their series and wears it for at least 22 hours a day. By the time patients reach the last tray in their treatment, they will have achieved the smile of their dreams!

How much does Invisalign cost?

A myriad of factors need to be considered when determining the cost of Invisalign and other cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, so scheduling a consultation visit and initial evaluation is the first step in finding out the cost of this and other cosmetic procedures and restorative treatments available at our office.
