Redefined Robert Graffeo, DDS
Did you not have braces as a child, and now you’re faced with crooked teeth as an adult? Or, did you not wear your retainer when you were younger, and your teeth have shifted again? Can’t imagine going to work or seeing friends with a mouthful of metal braces? At the dental office of Robert Graffeo, DDS, we offer you a solution no one will be able to tell you’re using, but it will still deliver the beautifully straight teeth you desire. It’s called Invisalign, and it’s quickly becoming the most popular orthodontic treatment around the world. Would it be a good fit for you? To learn more and start your journey to a straighter smile, contact us today to discuss Invisalign in Hoboken, NJ.
The genius of Invisalign is that it actually shifts the teeth the same way as traditional braces, but it doesn’t use bulky metal brackets and wires to do it. Instead, a patient wears a progressive series of clear plastic aligner trays that fit over the teeth similar to an athletic mouthguard. Thin, lightweight, and completely see-through, they practically disappear when worn, allowing a patient to maintain their regular appearance throughout treatment.
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign is easily removable as well. Instead of having to alter your diet and spend more time cleaning your teeth, you can simply take your trays out whenever you want to eat or brush.
The average treatment time with Invisalign is about 12-18 months, and while this might sound quite long, it’s just a fraction of the average time needed by traditional braces, which is three to four years.
