Mullica Hill Invisalign & Clear Aligners

Subtle Treatment for a Straighter Smile

For many adults living around Mullica Hill, the thought of wearing traditional metal braces to straighten their smile isn’t very appealing.

With clear aligners and Bowen Family Orthodontics, you can get the straight smile you want without anyone noticing that you’re going through treatment!

Our Clear Aligners Process

If you’re already dreading the thought of long dental appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, clear aligners from Bowen Family Orthodontics may be the right choice to straighten your teeth.

Invisalign can give you a stunning smile in almost half the time of traditional braces by using a series of clear, custom-fit aligners. The treatment process is simple and time-efficient.

Here’s how it works:

1. Come in for Your Smile Consultation

At your first free consultation, Dr. Bowen will sit down with you and assess the current state of your teeth and the results you want. We’ll also discuss your financial needs to ensure your treatment fits your budget.

If Dr. Bowen determines that Invisalign’s clear, removable aligners are the best solution to help you get the smile you want, we’ll sit down with you to discuss the financial options and treatment plans that would be best for you.

2. Make a Plan

Our Bowen Family Orthodontics team will take digital images and X-rays of your teeth and use these to create your treatment plan. We’ll use a computerized program to design a personalized series of clear, comfortable, removable aligners that will shift your teeth in stages towards a beautifully straight smile.

Dr. Bowen precisely designs each set of clear aligner tray to adjust your teeth to a predetermined location. You can even see a digital projection of your final results before starting treatment.

3. Wearing Your Clear Aligner Removable Braces

After receiving your clear aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them to eat, floss, and brush.

You’ll come into our Mullica Hill office for check-ups about every four to six weeks to get your new sets of aligners, and so Dr. Bowen can check the progress of your teeth. These check-ups are generally quick and painless because you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.

A Modern Approach

At Bowen Family Orthodontics, you can get a great smile with a treatment that doesn’t get in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know that you’re straightening your teeth.

Dr. Bowen has a lot of experience treating people with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our Mullica Hill braces patients.

This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing how people see orthodontic treatment.

Invisalign has vastly improved over the years and can handle various simple and complex cases. From crowding to spacing, underbite to overbite, Dr. Bowen can use Invisalign to help you reach your ideal smile.

Differences Between Braces & Invisalign

When it comes to Invisalign treatment, there’s a lot to consider. Most Invisalign patients at Bowen Family Orthodontics enjoy shorter check-ups, fewer appointments, easy-to-manage oral hygiene, and fewer emergency visits.

However, the system's biggest pro can also be a drawback: the aligners are removable. Your cooperation is important whether you have braces or Invisalign, but it’s essential for clear aligners.

Since braces are attached to your teeth, they do the heavy lifting to keep your treatment progressing.

With Invisalign, you need to do a little extra work during your treatment so your trays can complete your treatment.

You’ll need to manage your wear time, keep your aligners clean, and swap them out for the next aligner in the series. You need to be sure that you can do this before committing to Invisalign treatment.

Like with traditional metal braces, Dr. Bowen recommends wearing a retainer after your Invisalign treatment to maintain your new alignment and your confident new smile.

Ideal for Teens

As a teenager, you should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories. You should also have efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues.

At Bowen Family Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and Invisalign helps Dr. Bowen do just that.

Whether you’re a musician, an athlete, a thespian, class president, or anything else, you’ll be able to participate in your regular activities without the barrier of traditional braces.

Since Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic and almost invisible, your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them!

Invisalign helps you focus on doing what you do best—being yourself. At your first consultation with Dr. Bowen, you’ll find out how Invisalign can be a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
