Dr. Raj Upadya offers Invisalign®, the number one patient-requested clear braces system in the United States. Invisible braces provide a discreet, convenient option for our patients in Summit, NJ with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns.
Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry is a certified Invisalign® provider, offering treatment with clear aligners for a wide range of dental health and cosmetic concerns including:
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Invisible braces are one of the cosmetic dentistry treatments we provide to new and existing patients in Summit, NJ.
Why Choose Invisalign®?
Dr. Upadya can straighten your smile and improve your dental health with Invisalign® without impacting your appearance or quality of life. Invisalign® is often the perfect solution for teens and adults who do not want the hassles and discomfort of traditional metal braces, or adults experiencing shifting teeth after previous orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign® is virtually invisible; almost no one will be able to tell you are wearing clear braces. Invisalign® aligners are made of ultra-thin, ultra-clear, hard-soft plastic. Depending on your case, you will wear a series of aligners for approximately 2 weeks each. The clear aligners are comfortable, and removable, and will gently reposition your teeth in about 6-12 months.
Invisalign® & AcceleDent®
Dr. Upadya offers accelerated orthodontic treatment with AcceleDent at his Summit, NJ dentist office. This unique enhancement to your Invisalign treatment will accelerate the natural bone modeling that occurs as a result of teeth repositioning. In many cases, it can reduce your time in braces by almost 50%. Dr. Upadya will discuss the benefits of AcceleDent and explain how it can help you to achieve a straighter smile- faster!
About the Invisalign® Process
After a consultation to determine that Invisalign® is right for you, Dr. Upadya will create a customized treatment plan. He will take a mold of your mouth at our Summit, NJ cosmetic dentistry office. This mold is sent through specialized Invisalign® software to determine how your teeth should look after Invisalign® treatment.
We will send the files to the Invisalign® laboratory which will then generate several sets of clear plastic aligners to be worn for a specified amount of time each day. The number of aligners and length of your Invisalign® treatment will depend on the problem(s) being addressed and desired result.
You will change aligners according to your personal treatment plan, but generally every two weeks. The aligners are to be worn about 23 hours per day, leaving plenty of time to remove them so you can enjoy the foods you love and maintain good oral hygiene with thorough brushing and flossing.
With Invisalign®, there are no dietary restrictions and the risk of tooth decay is significantly decreased. Patients appreciate the flexibility and comfort of the clear aligners, which are made of smooth, BPA-free material and easily placed and removed.
