Crooked, gapped, or misaligned teeth can lead to decay and other oral health issues.
Clear aligners are an orthodontic alternative to braces that use aligner trays instead of brackets and wires.
Explore how Stephen J. Malki in River Edge, NJ, can straighten your smile with discreet clear aligners.
What Are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners are an orthodontic option that is trusted by orthodontists and dentists alike. This treatment involves using a series of aligner trays to gently guide your teeth into proper alignment. It works just like traditional braces, except there are no bulky metal brackets and wires.

Why Choose Aligners Over Braces?
Because aligner systems use clear trays, they are discreet. People likely won't notice you're wearing them as they are virtually undetectable.
There are no dietary restrictions with aligner systems like Invisalign and SureSmile, as you will remove your trays before you eat.
Aligner trays are made of smooth, clear plastic. This allows for more comfortable treatment when compared to braces that can cut the soft tissues of your mouth.
Treatment using clear aligners is typically shorter than that of braces. You can achieve a straighter smile in as little as 12-18 months versus 20-24 months with braces.

Over the last few years, I have had a few issues with one tooth that was badly broken when I was very young. After trying to temporarily fix the problem for months, Dr. Malki and his team decided on a different course of treatment to solve the issue for a longer period. It was their kindness and gentleness that helped make this process so easy. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.View on Google
I've been a patient of Dr. Malki's office for many years now and they're the only dentists that I trust. As with many people, I am scared of the dentist, but I always feel safe with Dr. Malki and his team. I like getting cleanings from Ana and the other hygienists are great too. Dr. Malki never pushes for unnecessary procedures. I think some dentists enjoy pointing out your flaws, but I'm just a human and I'm not perfect. Thank you Dr. Malki.View on Google
