Invisalign

Straight, properly aligned teeth can boost your confidence in your appearance and even improve your oral health.

Invisalign® is a safe and effective system to help you achieve attractive, evenly spaced teeth.

At Malki Dental in Bergen County, NJ, Dr. Stephen J. Malki offers Invisalign orthodontics to patients who want to align their teeth. 

Invisalign vs. Braces

The Invisalign system is a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign replaces wires and brackets with clear, plastic aligners designed to naturally guide the teeth into proper alignment.

As a result, many patients prefer Invisalign because it is more discreet and results in less discomfort when compared to traditional braces. It is also more convenient: it can often be completed in less time and it's easier to brush and floss the teeth since the aligners are removable. Lastly, you don't need to visit an orthodontist to undergo treatment.

Dr Malki has been my dentist and my children’s dentist and now my granddaughters dentist. Always a pleasure seeing him. I held off going post COVID-19 until today. I’m writing to tell everyone there is nothing to be nervous about. His office has top of the line air filtration machines in all the rooms. Staff masked. New air suction machine while work done on teeth. Disposable one time use covers and gowns. He also has a new dental hygienist named Jackie who has a very gentle touch in teeth cleaning. Highly recommend her. Don’t postpone any longer.

Benefits

More and more orthodontists and dentists are offering Invisalign because of the benefits it offers to patients.

Discreet

One of the most common reasons why patients choose Invisalign over braces is because treatment is much more discreet. In the past, certain patients may have felt apprehensive about straightening their teeth because of the visual drawbacks. With Invisalign’s clear trays, that problem is eliminated.

Less Discomfort

Another benefit of Invisalign is that it is pain-free. Patients won’t experience the painful cutting or tightening of wires in their mouth, or the development of mouth sores.

Easier Cleaning & Eating

Invisalign also makes daily tasks such as eating, talking, brushing, and flossing easier. Because the trays can be removed at any time, patients do not have to eliminate foods from their diet or worry about getting food stuck in between wires. This allows patients to adequately maintain their dental hygiene.

Improved Oral Health

Finally, Invisalign has a positive impact on a patient’s oral health.  By aligning the teeth and eliminating gaps and crowding, this orthodontic system reduces the risk of gum disease, bone deterioration, and jaw problems such as TMJ disorder. 

Candidates

Invisalign can be used to treat a variety of issues including:

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

The Invisalign Treatment Timeline

Patients from River Edge, NJ, Paramus, NJ, and other areas of Bergen County can rely on us for successful Invisalign treatment. Treatment consists of several simple steps:
"Most patients can expect to see full results in about a year."
"Most patients can expect to see full results in about a year."

Impressions

During your first appointment, Dr. Malki takes custom impressions of the teeth so we can design your treatment plan and fabricate your aligners.

Aligner Fabrication

The impressions are sent to the Invisalign lab, where a series of clear aligners are crafted.

Beginning Treatment

Once the aligners are produced, patients return to our office to begin treatment. Patients are expected to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day. Each set of aligners is typically worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next set in the series.

Office Visits

Patients will need to visit our office about once every two weeks. Dr. Malki will monitor your progress during these appointments and answer any questions that arise.

Completing Treatment

When your treatment is complete, we will provide you with custom retainers to keep your teeth in proper alignment. These should be worn nightly to maintain your results.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Each new set of aligners gradually shifts the teeth, creating a more aesthetically pleasing smile. The total length of treatment time will vary by individual, but most patients can expect to see full results in about a year. This timeline is similar to the amount of time it takes to correct tooth and jaw misalignment with traditional braces.
