Dr. Anatoly Bensianoff reviews patient concerns and options for orthodontic treatment.

Linden NJ dentistOf the different orthodontic techniques offered by Magic Smile Dental, many patients prefer Invisalign® Clear Braces. This system is unique in that it doesn’t require any of the traditional equipment associated with metal braces – no wires or brackets. The Invisalign® system implements custom-made clear plastic aligners to move teeth into a new position over time. Here are a few reasons patients love this method:

  • The clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible to the outside observer.
  • Invisalign® patients are able to brush and floss freely, since the aligners are removable.
  • Aligners can also be removed for eating, drinking, or special occasions.
  • The supple plastic material is more comfortable than metal braces that can irritate the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Treatment time is often shorter – only six to twelve months.

To get started with your Invisalign® treatment plan, Dr. Bensianoff will take impressions of your teeth and mouth. These molds will be used in conjunction with 3D computer-imaging technology to formulate a treatment plan that fits your individual smile. The plastic aligners will be fabricated using the same technology so that each one fits well and moves teeth without causing any discomfort. The plastic aligner is replaced by mail every two weeks and office visits are recommended every six weeks to ensure that treatment is moving along nicely.

Dr. Bensianoff recommends Invisalign® over veneers to change the appearance of slightly crooked teeth, since Invisalign® preserves the structure of healthy teeth. Magic Smile also provides traditional braces for more complicated teeth-straightening cases, such as malocclusion.
