Orthodontic Treatment Process

Orthodontics is the process of using appliances to align teeth over a period of time. The teeth shift due to the gentle, controlled forces placed on them with braces or clear aligners to guide them to their ideal positions over a period of time.

The reason tooth movement happens is that bone tissue is broken down and rebuilt over time. When teeth have moved into the desired location, active treatment ends. This is when most patients will wear retainers. These devices give the new bone structure a chance to harden and support the newly aligned teeth.

Invisalign

Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners, which look similar to a mouthguard or retainer, to gently shift the position of your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for at least 20-22+ hours a day, and every few weeks you’ll switch to a new set as you progress through your treatment.

Invisalign has a number of benefits. One of the most notable advantages is the discrete, nearly invisible aligners. Invisalign can also be removed to eat, brush, and floss, so patients don’t have dietary restrictions throughout the process.

As a Top 1% Invisalign Diamond provider, Smile Culture offers specialized expertise in this treatment method. Because of our experience, our team has proven success using Invisalign treatment for patients with a variety of issues. Many patients are surprised and delighted to learn they are candidates for Invisalign at their initial consultation.

Traditional Braces

Metal braces are a highly versatile method of orthodontic correction used to correct a wide range of issues, including problems with jaw position, bite, and severely crooked teeth.

Using a wire and bracket system, pressure is exerted on the teeth to move them towards the proper position over time. Due to their flexibility and versatility, metal braces are usually recommended for more serious orthodontic cases.

RICKI LAUREN

I have never had a bad experience in this office. I am a patient at the Fairless Hills office. The staff are extremely professional and caring in dealing with patients. I have had extremely excellent treatment from Day 1. Dr. Taee is such a great Dr./Orthodontist and he is a perfectionist and it shows in his work. So much so that I have recommended my wife and daughter for Invisalign care with him and will be referring others. He has made my teeth 100% better which has given me great confidence. Trust your teeth and your smile to Smile Culture Dental.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best age to consider orthodontics?

AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends that every child be seen by an orthodontist by age 7 for screening to determine proper growth and development of teeth and facial structures.

Our patients range in age from first grade children well into adulthood. Before beginning orthodontic treatment, most (but not all) patients have their permanent teeth in place. There is no upper age limit for orthodontics, and our practice treats individuals into their 80s. Contact us to schedule an evaluation to determine the best timing for orthodontic treatment.

What should I expect at the first appointment?

At your 1st complimentary consultation visit, we provide comprehensive records including photographs, digital scan of the teeth and bite, and X-rays to help with the consultation.  Dr. Taee will meet you, listen to your concerns, examine you, provide explanation of the diagnosis and thoroughly review the customized treatment plan options. Upon agreement on a plan, you will be scheduled to start your treatment either the same day or on a convenient day that works for you.

Is Invisalign Invisible?

The clear, plastic aligners of the Invisalign system are nearly invisible to the naked eye. A common tell of Invisalign is that speech can be affected until the wearer gets used to the aligners, but it usually only takes about a week to acclimate to the device. This means that no one will need to know that you’re straightening your teeth, unless you want them to!

However, it’s important to care for your aligners in order to keep them clear. Drinking any beverage beside water while wearing your aligners can stain them, especially coffee, tea and wine. You should also clean your aligners every night to prevent them from becoming stained or yellowed.

How much will this cost?

Each case is unique and the cost is dependent on the length and complexity of the treatment. After the initial evaluation, our staff will provide pricing information and establish a payment plan that works for your budget. During that time, we’ll provide information about how to maximize insurance benefits, discuss flex spending accounts, and highlight our financing options for braces and Invisalign. We are committed to transparency and ensuring you know what to expect before beginning treatment. Because Dr. Taee is a top 1% Invisalign Diamond Plus provider, his experience and expertise allow him to complete cases earlier at a more affordable value to patients.

How does the team decide between Invisalign or metal braces?

Our orthodontist conducts a full assessment to determine the best course of treatment for each patient based on their orthodontic needs and preferences. Because of Dr. Taee’s vast experience, he is able to treat most cases with Invisalign. Invisalign offers several benefits for patients:

  • Customized for your teeth

  • Invisible/esthetic

  • Removable

  • No food limitations

  • Easy to brush and floss teeth as normal

  • Faster

  • No emergencies

  • Fewer visits

  • Predictable

  • Gentle and comfortable

  • More precise and detailed

  • You can do VIRTUAL visits

In most cases, the cost between the Invisalign and metal braces at Smile Culture Dental is the same (with exception to insurance fees).  The decision is made in consideration of patient preferences.

How often will I need to come?

For Invisalign, once every 8-12 weeks and metal braces once every 6-8 weeks.

How long will the entire process take?

The treatment length is dependent on the objectives, patients’ preferences and complexity of the case. Most Invisalign cases can be completed between 12-18 months, and some milder cases require only 6 months of treatment. For patients with braces, treatment takes between 16 and 24 months. Each case is unique: your orthodontist will be able to determine the precise length of your specific treatment, whether it's braces or Invisalign.

What can I expect after my teeth are straightened?

At the completion of your treatment, we offer complimentary retainers and retainers checks. Enjoy your smile!
