Embracing Dental Braces - Options for Children and Adults

Dentists recommend that patients come in for a checkup every six months. During the checkup, the teeth are cleaned and examined, and x-rays of the mouth are taken. The appointments allow the dentist to track and monitor the health of your teeth, determine strategies for prevention, diagnose issues, and suggest options for treatment. The dentist could potentially find that your teeth are:

  • Crooked
  • Crowded
  • Misaligned
  • Irregularly spaced

If so, he or she may suggest getting braces. Dental braces are also used to treat overbites, underbites, and incorrect jaw positioning. These oral problems can lead to serious complications like:

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty speaking, biting, or chewing

At our dental practice in Monmouth County, New Jersey, we offer braces to ensure that your teeth are as straight and healthy as possible, so they look great and don't lead to potential health hazards down the road. Healthy, beautiful teeth? What more could you ask for!


Children who need braces are recommended to start wearing them between the ages of 10 and 14. It is the ideal time to have braces since their heads and mouths are still growing. However, braces can still be worn in the adolescent and adult years as well. Many adults in Farmingdale, NJ, opt for braces to enhance their smile and correct minor oral issues.


Thanks to technological advancements in the dental field, there are more options for braces now Than ever before. The braces vary in look, materials, and alignment method. Your options for dental braces include metal braces, ceramic braces, and Invisalign.


We help people all across New Jersey attain vivid, beautiful smiles. These are some of the areas we're proud to serve:


  • Whitesville
  • Jackson
  • Farmingdale
  • Howell
  • Monmouth County


A Non-Traditional Approach to Alignment with Invisalign

Back in the day, metal braces were pretty much the only recourse for aligning the teeth and jaw. But with Invisalign, patients can have their oral features aligned without the hassle of metal brackets and wires. Invisalign is a clear plastic aligner that looks similar to a mouthguard. It is specifically designed to fit over the teeth and is custom made for each patient.

Rather than flaunt metal braces for everyone to see, patients can opt for Invisalign to correct their alignment in a more discreet manner. Invisalign is completely different from metal braces, yet has the same effect. Unlike metal braces that are bonded in place with glue, Invisalign is removable. Because of its clear structure, the process of alignment is not as noticeable as wearing traditional metal braces.

The alignment process with Invisalign is more aesthetically pleasing and consists of anywhere from 18 to 30 aligners in all. After two weeks of wearing Invisalign, it is replaced again to continue moving the jaw and teeth.
