Consider Invisalign to achieve the beautiful, straight teeth you've always wanted - without braces. Schedule an appointment for a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kim to determine if Invisalign is right for you. We welcome new patients from Monmouth County and surrounding communities.
What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing; so, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. Further, they are comfortable because there is no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment; and, no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office receiving adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so that you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move - little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit our office in Oakhurst about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30; however, both will vary from case to case.
