Do you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite? Are you hesitant to wear traditional, metal braces? To help you reach a straighter, healthier, more attractive smile, Dr. Jon Molinare may recommend Invisalign® in Cedar Knolls, New Jersey. Invisalign consists of a series of clear, nearly invisible aligners. With Invisalign, you can straighten your smile in five easy steps.

The first step in the process is having a consultation with our dentist. Your needs and desires will be discussed and our dentist will determine whether you are a candidate for Invisalign.

Second, your unique treatment plan will be formulated. To accomplish this, your teeth will be scanned or impressions are made. Using these impressions, Dr. Jon Molinare will map out your customized, specific treatment plan. This will contain the precise movement of your teeth and an estimated length of treatment.

During the third step, your nearly invisible Invisalign aligners will be fashioned. Wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day to achieve optimal results. You can take out your aligners to eat and to brush and floss.

The fourth step includes your progress with your aligners. Each set of aligners will gradually shift your teeth into their proper places. About every week, you will progress to the next set of aligners.

In the fifth step, a retainer may be recommended to help maintain your straightened smile.
