Thank you for visiting the website of Dr. Edward J. Smith. We offer our patients the option of clear braces, metal braces or Invisalign braces. Our invisalign Randolph NJ is done in our office and 100% guaranteed to be easy and convenient for you and your family should you be a candidate for them.
Our Invisalign Randolph NJ uses a series of clear plastic aligners, but we also offer clear braces by other providers as well. Our clear braces are made from two different kinds of materials, plastic and aluminum oxide. Most adult patients prefer clear braces because of their low visibility. Over the past 20 years, these kinds of braces have evolved greatly. They are strong and resist staining. For those who choose metal braces, we apply this commonly used type of orthodontics in a few quick and easy visits to our office. Metal braces are traditionally very good for straightening teeth. Metal braces allow for three dimensional movement so that teeth can get into the proper position.
Invisalign moves the teeth into place using a series of clear plastic aligners that do not require spacers, extractors or any of the metal hardware that traditional braces use. The entire series is done with a set of aligners that are swapped out once every two weeks as the teeth gently align during the procedure. Invisalign Randolph NJ takes about a year to straighten teeth, depending on the severity of the misalignment. Invisalign is easy and painless to apply to the teeth. Many patients are extremely happy with the results after getting Invisalign done on their teeth. They are a convenient way to have braces without the headache of regular braces and can be taken out any time or for special occasions. Invisalign should be taken out only when specified by our dentist and cleared for that occasion, however, and kept in the mouth as much as possible.
