Your Local Invisalign experts
You can trust Bowen Family Orthodontics to provide expert smiles to patients in Mullica Hill and the surrounding communities, no matter your age. We are delighted to offer the Invisalign clear aligner system to teens and adults who want the same results as traditional braces with more freedom and flexibility.
How Mullica Hill Invisalign Works
We'll take photos and X-rays to create a 3D image of your mouth. We make your first set of custom-fitted aligners from these images, and then you begin the process of straightening your teeth.
You will probably wear Invisalign aligners for 9-15 months and typically use 18-30 sets during your treatment.
You wear the trays for about 22 hours a day but can remove them to brush your teeth and eat. Based on your individual needs, you will wear several sets of trays throughout your orthodontic treatment and will start to notice a change in just a few months!
Wearing the aligners will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements your orthodontist plans for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You pop in a new set of aligners about every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You'll get a great smile without a treatment that gets in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth.
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment. Dr. Bowen has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we're excited to offer this technology to our Bowen Family Orthodontics braces patients.
Benefits of Invisalign from Bowen Family Orthodontics
Invisalign makes it easy to keep your teeth clean, which is especially important during orthodontic treatment. While your aligners are nearly invisible, the fact that you can remove them is just as important. You can remove them to brush and floss as you usually would.
Another benefit of their removability is that you can eat whatever you want during your treatment with clear aligners. Food restrictions are often the most significant learning curve with traditional braces. With Invisalign, you don't have to skip any of your favorite foods while you're working on a straighter smile! Invisalign aligners are designed so you can remove them before eating or drinking anything other than water. You'll never have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets or wires. Just make sure you're clearing your teeth after every meal before putting your aligners back on, as well as cleaning your aligners with warm water at least once or twice a day.
There are no pesky wires with Invisalign aligners to poke out and irritate your mouth, and there aren't any adjustment appointments. While you'll Invisalign wearers are still expected to attend follow-up visits about every 6-8 weeks so Dr. Bowen can be sure everything is progressing as it should.
