Wayne NJ Preferred Provider of Invisalign and Invisalign TeenFor patients in Wayne NJ looking to straighten their teeth without having to endure the unsightly wires and brackets of traditional orthodontics, Invisalign is the answer.

Thanks to Invisalign®, there is now a way to straighten teeth without braces!

Many of our patients at Wayne Dental Arts come to us with questions about straightening crooked teeth, or correcting some gaps in their smile – and they think that a long cosmetic dentistry treatment plan is in their future.

That doesn’t have to be the case with Invisalign® clear aligners, but let’s get to answering some of the most often asked questions surrounding Invisalign® treatment that we receive from our totally awesome Wayne NJ & Passaic County dental patients.

Straightening Smiles With Invisalign & Invisalign Teen


What Is Invisalign?

Wayne NJ Invisalign and Invisalign Teen DentistInvisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth without the often referred to “metal-mouth” syndrome often associated with traditional orthodontic braces.

The Invisalign system uses a series of clear removable aligners (pictured at right) that straighten teeth without the unsightly metal brackets, or wires of train track looking teeth.

Invisalign technology has been proven effective in clinical research and in dental practices worldwide.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Patients receiving Invisalign treatment wear each set of clear aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.

As one of Passaic County & Wayne NJ’s Premier Invisalign providers, Dr. Maldonado, replaces each aligner with the next one in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final position prescribed.

Patients undergoing Invisalign treatment visit our our office about once every 6 weeks to ensure that everything is going as planned.

Typically, the entire treatment time averages about 9-15 months, with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30, but both will vary on an individual patient basis.

Are My Teeth Too Crooked For Invisalign To Work?

Luckily, at the Wayne NJ Dental Arts office of Dr. Frank V. Maldonado, we first take the time together with the patient to develop a realistic plan and time frame in which to accomplish the goals of a straighter, more self-confident smile for all of our Invisalign patients.

This is often when the most questions arise, and that’s a good thing!

A vast majority of adults and adolescents can be treated with Invisalign® & Invisalign Teen® – a specifically designed set of treatment protocols and aligners just for adolescents.

You know, that time when you were probably MOST concerned about your appearance…when you were a teenager!

Invisalign is capable of treating a wide variety of crooked smile issues, including crowding, space closure, narrow arches, relapse, anterior intrusion, and limited treatment cases.

For less severe orthodontic problems such as minor crowding and spacing, Invisalign Express is designed for mild problems only, affording patients a treatment time that is generally less than six months.

What are the main benefits of Invisalign?

  • Invisalign is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

  • Invisalign is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.

  • Invisalign is comfortable. There are no metal brackets or wires as with braces to cause mouth irritation, and no metal or wires means you spend less time in the doctor’s chair getting adjustments.

  • Invisalign allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How much does Invisalign cost?

As with traditional metal braces or other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign is heavily dependent on the complexity of the particular patient’s situation.
