The Most Convenient Teeth-Straightening Option on the Market

If you’re busy (and who isn’t these days?) you probably dread adding anything more to your plate. Whether you’ve delayed your own orthodontic correction or are suddenly faced with a teen who needs teeth straightening, you may be wondering if there’s a fast, easy way to align teeth without it becoming yet another job.

Luckily, the most convenient route to straighter teeth has been test-driven for you by some of the busiest people on earth: brides-to-be. When the consumer review site RealSelf surveyed popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments among brides-to-be, the Invisalign teeth-straightening system came out on top.

Why is Invisalign the most convenient way to get straighter, more beautifully aligned teeth? Our experts at Hudson River Dental Arts, a world-class dental office in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, share a few reasons:

You get Invisalign from your dentist

You don’t have to find and vet a whole new oral health professional if you choose to straighten your teeth with Invisalign. Hudson River Dental Arts is a qualified Invisalign provider. If Dr. Jennifer Sunkin determines that you or your teen is a candidate for Invisalign, she uses the system to improve:

She makes sure that your teeth and gums are healthy before ordering Invisalign. She takes  digital images of your bite in the comfort and convenience of our office, then creates a treatment plan that she sends out to the Invisalign labs.

You pick up several weeks’ worth of trays at a time

When your clear, soft, nearly invisible Invisalign alignment trays are ready, you pick up several weeks’ worth at a time, so you don’t have to run back and forth to our office except for scheduled evaluations. Each aligner is slightly different from the next, and is designed to gradually change the position of your teeth until your alignment problems are resolved.

You wear an aligner tray for a week or two, depending on Dr. Sunkin’s recommendations. Each time you switch to a new aligner, your teeth are nudged into a slightly different, more-aligned position.

You don’t ache for days

Unlike traditional braces, which can hurt for days to weeks after an adjustment, you usually don’t feel more than slightly sore when you switch to a new aligner tray. Within a couple of days, you’ve adjusted and don’t notice the new position anymore.

The wires and brackets in traditional braces can also irritate or even wound your delicate oral tissues, such as your inner cheeks and tongue. Invisalign is made of patented SmartTrack® composite materials, which are soft, smooth, and gentle.

You can remove Invisalign trays for special occasions

You only have to wear Invisalign 20-22 hours a day. So if you have a hot date, you can take the tray out beforehand, and put it back in when you get home.

Also, if you’re scheduled for a photo shoot or any other event where you want to look your best, just remove your Invisalign tray, rinse it, and store in it in its case until the event is over. Be sure to rinse or brush your Invisalign before wearing again.

If your event lasts longer than two hours, you can feel confident that you still look your best. In addition to being so clear that they’re nearly invisible, the Invisalign trays are shaped to your gum line for maximum discretion.

You can eat anything you want

If you have traditional wire-and-bracket braces, you may hesitate to eat delicious foods that you know could get stuck in the wires. But because you remove Invisalign before you eat, you can indulge in anything from apples to flaky pastries without worrying about food particles.

You clean Invisalign when you brush your teeth

When you brush your teeth twice and day and floss once a day, remove your Invisalign and brush it, too, with regular ADA-approved toothpaste. You can also use the convenient Invisalign cleaning system, which takes just 15 minutes to remove plaque from your aligners or retainer and keep them clear and odor-free.

Invisalign reminds you to change

Busy people know how important it is to delegate tasks to others. So you’ll probably appreciate the Invisalign Teen® alignment trays, which feature a discreet indicator dot that turns blue to tell you it’s time to switch to a new tray. Though Invisalign Teen is a great way to ensure that your teenager knows when it’s time to use a new tray, you don’t have to be a teenager to order Invisalign Teen.

You only need Invisalign for a year or two

Traditional braces can take several years to work. Depending on your needs, Invisalign can work within a year to two years. Dr. Sunkin estimates your treatment time during your Invisalign consultation.  

Whether you’re a bride-to-be or any other busy person, Invisalign is a simple way to get straighter teeth without a lot of hassle. To set up an Invisalign consultation, call our office today or use our convenient online form.
