Dr. Raj Upadya is an Invisalign® Preferred Provider in East Hanover, New Jersey. Invisalign® invisible braces are clear, removable and comfortable, ideal for patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment. One of the greatest benefits of Invisalign® is that it will gently reposition the teeth without causing damage to tooth enamel, gum tissue or a TMJ disorder.
Invisalign® is used to treat a variety of orthodontic concerns including overbite, underbite, cross-bite, and crooked teeth. Studies show that clear braces may be better for your dental hygiene during treatment. Because Invisalign® aligners are removable, you can brush and floss teeth normally, unlike traditional metal braces which can be difficult to care for and often trap food particles between the braces and teeth. In addition, you can remove aligners to enjoy the food and drink you like without special restriction.
Invisalign® is virtually invisible, almost no-one will be able to tell you are wearing clear braces. Invisalign® aligners are made of an ultra thin, ultra clear, hard-soft plastic. Depending on your case, you will wear a series of aligners for approximately 2 weeks each. Most patients complete treatment in 6 – 12 months.
In addition to the esthetic and comfort advantages, Invisalign® offers a number of significant clinical benefits including:
- Improved gum and tooth health during treatment because of better oral hygiene
- No metal allergies due to brackets and wires
- More predictable treatment planning with Invisalign® software
- Custom aligners tailored to fit your teeth precisely, for reduced irritation and fewer scratches
- Little dietary restrictions
