Invisalign Clear Braces

You want a straighter smile, but there's no room in your life to deal with orthodontics that requires metal brackets and wires on your teeth. You want an easy treatment solution that requires little maintenance and doesn't restrict your lifestyle.

The answer for you is Invisalign clear braces. At Gentle Hands Dental Care, Dr. Rae Van Natta helps adults and teens in Hamilton, NJ straighten their teeth comfortably and discreetly with Invisalign's crystal-clear plastic aligners.

Benefits of Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners that are customized to move your teeth into a straighter position. This method offers numerous benefits for patients:

  • Discreet – With clear aligners that blend into your smile, most people won't notice you're wearing them.
  • Comfortable – You don't have to worry about metal brackets and wires poking into your cheeks.
  • Removable – You should wear your Invisalign aligners at least 22 hours a day, but you can remove them for meals, so there are no food restrictions.
  • Easy oral hygiene – Cleaning around traditional braces is a challenge, to say the least. Oral hygiene is easier with Invisalign because you can take the aligners out to brush and floss.

The most obvious benefit that you will have the straight, symmetrical smile you've always wanted. You'll feel more confident about your appearance, and you may even be inspired to improve other areas of your life. Studies show that others perceive those with a straight, uniform smile to be more intelligent and more successful, so it's safe to say that Invisalign treatment may even increase your odds of landing that dream job.

Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

Beyond aesthetics, however, straight teeth help you maintain a healthy smile. Teeth that are crooked, crowded, gapped, or overlapped are challenging to keep clean because your brush and floss can't reach between them. 

When you can't thoroughly clean your teeth, you are at an increased risk for dental conditions like cavities and gum disease. When your teeth are poorly positioned teeth, it can also create uneven chewing surfaces that place excessive force on your teeth and cause dental wear and teeth grinding that can contribute to pain in your jaw joint or TMJ.
