Achieve a Confident Smile with Invisalign

Invisalign is a comfortable, nearly invisible alternative to traditional braces. We use impressions & x-rays to create a 3D model of your mouth & jaw, helping you visualize how long your treatment will take & how your teeth will realign.

Since aligners are removable, you can continue eating what you want & brushing your teeth as usual.

TMJ Disorder

If you have jaw pain or a clicking sound when opening your mouth, it could be a sign of TMJ disorder, also known as TMD or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. There are 2 matching temporomandibular joints on each side of the face in front of your ears, and they connect your lower jaw bone to your skull for chewing and talking.

Symptoms include pain in the jaw and head, a clicking or grating sensation when moving the jaw, and headaches. TMD can be caused by many things, including stress and clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxism).

A dentist can diagnose TMD by performing a physical exam. They will check the jaw for tenderness, listen to the sounds of your mouth as you open and close it, and take X-rays or other tests like an MRI or CT scan. Depending on the severity of your TMD, they may recommend changing your lifestyle habits or surgery to correct the alignment of your teeth.

Bruxism

The clenching and grinding of the teeth, known as bruxism, can cause significant damage to both your teeth and jaw. It is a condition that can be treated with Invisalign Somerset NJ.

Many people are unaware that they grind and clench their teeth at night, especially children. They often only discover this behavior when told by their bed partners or parents. Other symptoms can include a sore or tired jaw when you wake up, clicks or crackles in the jaw joints, enlarged jaw muscles, headaches, sensitive teeth, tooth wear and damaged dental restorations such as fillings and crowns.

It is important to seek treatment if you suspect you have sleep bruxism. A physical exam and a discussion of your symptoms can help diagnose the problem. In addition, it may be necessary to have a sleep study done, called polysommography, to determine if you are exhibiting the signs of sleep bruxism. If left untreated, the problems caused by sleep bruxism can worsen over time and become more difficult to treat.

Misalignment

Misalignment, or malocclusion, refers to the way your upper and lower teeth fit together when you bite. Common malocclusions include an overbite (where the top teeth protrude or completely cover the lower teeth), underbite, crossbite and open bite.

Invisalign can treat mild to moderate malocclusions by using clear aligners made from smooth, BPA-free plastic. Wearing your aligners daily and regularly replacing them with the next in the series will gradually shift your teeth until they are in their final positions. Your doctor will schedule regular check-ups to make sure your treatment is on track.

Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign aligners to eat and drink. You can also take them out to brush and floss, or for special occasions. The removability of your aligners also provides increased flexibility in your everyday lifestyle, making it easier to maintain good oral hygiene practices and eat your favorite foods. Additionally, the removable aligners minimize discomfort by eliminating the need for dietary restrictions and metal wires that can irritate soft tissues.

A straight smile is not only attractive but is also beneficial to your long-term oral health. Crooked teeth and misalignment can lead to increased risks of tooth decay, gum disease, and physical wear and tear on your teeth. These issues can be corrected with orthodontic treatments such as traditional metal braces or Invisalign Somerset NJ.

Invisalign is a popular option for adults and teens to correct misalignment issues with minimal interruptions to their daily routine. This treatment uses clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible in your mouth. They apply gentle pressure to the teeth as they shift into their final positions, which helps to alleviate discomfort.

With Invisalign Somerset NJ, you can get a straighter smile in less time than with traditional braces. Schedule an appointment at Cedar Grove Dental to learn more about how this advanced alignment solution can help you achieve your dream smile. We can provide impressions and x-rays, then create a digital image of your teeth to visualize the progress of your realignment.
