If you’ve got gapped, crowded or otherwise crooked teeth, you’ve probably been thinking about getting them fixed for awhile. And now you’re reading this blog post — that’s proof you’re ready to do something about those misaligned teeth. But what’s the best option for getting a straighter smile? The thought of metal brackets and wires sends most adults into a nervous panic, but there are other options — like invisible braces with Invisalign in Florham Park.
Traditional Braces vs. Invisalign
If the battle is between bulky metal brackets and clear, sleek plastic aligners, there’s little contest. Invisalign is the invisible option that has helped so many adults and adolescents achieve straighter teeth discretely — and more quickly than traditional braces.
So how does the Invisalign system work? Pretty simply, actually. You’ll have a consultation with Dr. Carollo, your trusted dentist in Florham Park, where he’ll take impressions and photos of your teeth to create your unique treatment plan. From this study of your mouth, a series of clear dental aligners will be created and sent straight to you. You’ll wear each aligner for two weeks, gradually advancing through each stage of the treatment on your way to a straighter, more beautiful smile.
Benefits of Invisalign
The advantages of choosing invisible braces go beyond the fact that they’re a discrete way to straighten teeth. Our patients who have chosen this option confirm that they’re also:
- Comfortable: Because Invisalign doesn’t rely on metal hardware to straighten your teeth, you don’t have to worry about any bracket or wire malfunction rubbing a sore into your delicate cheeks, gums or lips.
- Fast: Invisalign is designed to work in one year, on average. That’s compared to one and a half to two years with traditional braces.
- Convenient: Because Invisalign works so much faster than the other option, you’ll spend far less time visiting your dentist and worrying about special cleaning techniques. In fact, Invisalign trays are removable — so you can continue brushing, eating and flossing just as you always have. That’s convenience.

In the battle between Invisalign and traditional braces, the former usually wins — but there are still those who prefer the traditional means for straightening teeth. We fully support this decision — after all, metal brackets and braces have been a trusted method for years and years.
