Adults and responsible teens who want a straighter smile now have alternatives to traditional metal braces. Dr. Joshua Tuzman provides the Invisalign treatment to correct mild to moderate orthodontic issues. The process uses a series of nearly invisible aligners to shift your teeth into correct positioning gently. The trays are custom designed for a comfortable fit and are removable for added convenience.


Effective and Discrete Orthodontics

Invisalign clear braces are designed to fit comfortably and are virtually invisible. Over the years, these clear aligners have proven effective at correcting the following orthodontic conditions:

  • Crowding
  • Unwanted Gaps
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Open bite
  • Cross-bite

When choosing your method of orthodontic treatment, it’s important to weigh your options thoughtfully. Invisalign works best for mild to moderate malocclusion. Only metal braces can complete more complex tasks, such as realigning the jaw or pulling very large canines into place. If you require more extensive orthodontic care, we work with a trusted specialist to arrange your treatment.

How the Invisalign Process Works

For Invisalign treatment to be effective, you must wear the trays for 22 hours per day and remove them only when eating or brushing and flossing.

We obtain a detailed impression of your bite, which we then send to the Invisalign lab. Expert technicians create digital before and after images that we share with you at your second visit. If you decide to proceed, the lab will fabricate a series of customized aligner trays for you.

We provide enough trays to last until your follow-up appointment. Careful monitoring is important for optimal results, and Dr. Tuzman is committed to your satisfaction.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

The cost of Invisalign is comparable to traditional braces, which can range from $2,000 to 6,000. Your actual cost will depend on several factors, including:

  • Your insurance benefits, Flexible Spending Accounts, or Health Savings Accounts
  • The number and severity of issues that need correcting
  • Your dedication to wearing the trays for the recommended time

Orthodontic treatment is sometimes considered only an aesthetic treatment. However, straight teeth are easier to keep clean, which lowers your risk of gum disease. Our team can help you find out if your insurance covers the cost of our treatment and organize other financing options.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Braces

Other options for straightening teeth include conventional braces with clear or tooth-colored brackets. These options need special tools for adequate home dental care.

With conventional braces, you may need whitening after treatment. Because the brackets and wires inhibit proper brushing, staining is a common occurrence. Invisalign clear braces do not need anything attached to your teeth, so cleaning them is easy. Also, the removable trays can be used to deliver professional whitening gel and act as a retainer at the end of your treatment.

Achieving straighter teeth with Invisalign clear braces in Hackensack is easier than ever. Our practice works hard to keep treatment convenient for you and your family. Invisalign braces are an effective, discreet, and convenient way to gain confidence and the ability to smile freely.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Depending on how much correction you need, the length of treatment is typically between 12 and 18 months. For very mild issues, treatment time can be as little as six months. To have a successful Invisalign treatment, you must commit to wearing the retainer at least 22 hours each day. That means removing the retainer only to eat and clean your teeth. 

It may be tempting to remove the retainers when they ache from natural movement. This minor discomfort is short-lived and means the retainers are working. Leaving them on as long as possible will help straighten your teeth completely within the expected time frame. Make sure you are prepared to commit to wearing them as necessary.

How to Remove and Replace Invisalign Trays

Because the aligner trays are custom-made to fit securely, it can be challenging to remove them. The best way to take them out is to lift up from the back of your teeth first, then pop off the rest of the tray.

Reverse the order to place them back on. Snap them onto the front teeth first, then secure the rest of the tray in place.
