If someone you know has ever used traditional braces to straighten teeth, you are probably aware that it can be difficult to brush and floss around the metal brackets and wires. But if you’d like to get a beautiful smile filled with straight teeth without having to change your recommended oral hygiene habits, call Newman Springs Dental Care at 732-352-3903 and ask us about removable Invisalign!
Because every patient has unique smile imperfections and also unique preferences for going about fixing those imperfections, we offer multiple orthodontics options for straightening teeth at our Lincroft, NJ dentist office.
If clear aligners are not a good fit for you, we may be able to straighten your teeth with Six Month Smiles instead. They are not quite as discreet as clear aligners, but they do use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires so they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Below, we’ll discuss how being able to take your aligners out will make your oral hygiene regimen more simple for you. But we also want you to know about the many other perks of Invisalign compared to other options for straightening teeth. Many patients love their experience with this system because the aligners are:
- Made from smooth plastic instead of metal, so they are very comfortable
- Almost impossible to notice because they are clear and fit your teeth very precisely
- Removable so you can take them out for special occasions, meals, and brushing and flossing
- Very fast-acting and can often be used to complete an orthodontic treatment in less time than braces depending on the patient
For your convenience, we accept a large array of payment options. We don’t want you to put off any dental treatment you want or need, including cosmetic dentistry options! We even take third-party financing from CareCredit. They frequently offer interest-free financing for some patients!
Compared to many other dental offices out there, we offer more flexible hours. Along with the appointment times we provide that fit within the nine-to-five schedule you’re probably used to, we also stay late until 7:30 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays and open on Saturdays twice a month. We also open early at 8:00 a.m. on:
- Friday (2 days per month)
Enjoy Convenient Oral Hygiene While Using Invisalign
Traditional braces can be a wonderful option for people who want to straighten teeth. That’s why they’ve been in use for so long. But they can also be very inconvenient for patients, especially when it comes to cleaning your teeth and keeping your smile healthy and looking great during treatment.
Instead of having to make adjustments and even use special techniques and instruments to clean your teeth around braces, you can visit our Lincroft, NJ dentist office and get removable clear aligners instead.
You’ll still maintain the same oral hygiene habits that you should be keeping up already. When it’s time to clean your teeth, you’ll just need to take out your aligners and then:
- Brush your teeth and gums using a soft-bristled toothbrush for two minutes at a time twice a day
- Floss between all of your teeth at least once a day
- Use a mouthwash or rinse that has been approved by the FDA if recommended or desired
As long as you use your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day, your orthodontic treatment should go as planned without issue.
Many patients who use traditional braces have a lot of difficulty brushing and flossing around their brackets and wires. Some even loosen or damage their braces and have to get them adjusted or repaired. Others do their best but when their braces come off they realize they missed a lot of spots while brushing. This can result in stains or worse, including cavities.
In contrast, while using clear aligners, you’ll be able to clean your teeth normally and also see exactly what your teeth look like without any metal obstructing your view.
Once your teeth are straight, they’ll also be easier to clean! You won’t have to worry about floss getting stuck between your teeth and ripping or any of the other issues you deal with with crooked teeth.
To make your visits with us as pleasant as possible, we’ll treat you to various comfort options and our friendly team will do all we can to cater to your needs.
