Learn how we can help you achieve a more attractive smile with this revolutionary orthodontic system at our Ridgewood, NJ, office...

What Is Invisalign?

A side by side of a smile with clear aligners and a smile with metal braces
Instead of metal hardware, Invisalign uses smooth, clear aligners that are custom-crafted for each individual patient. These aligners fit snugly over your upper or lower teeth, similar to whitening trays or a sports guard. Treatment with Invisalign can range from nine to 18 months but takes about 12 months on average, which is roughly half the typical timeline for traditional orthodontics.

The Unbeatable Benefits of Invisalign 


Braces can make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them easy to fit into any lifestyle.


Traditional braces use brackets and wires that can irritate the inside of the mouth and cause discomfort. Aligners are made of clear, BPA-free plastic that is smooth to the touch and extremely comfortable compared to braces.

Easily Removable

Brushing and flossing your teeth with braces can be a challenge. Aligners can be easily removed in seconds, making it easy and convenient to maintain optimal oral health while undergoing orthodontic treatment.

No Dietary Restrictions

Patients with braces often have to give up their favorite sticky, chewy foods to avoid getting them stuck in their brackets. Because aligners are easily removable, patients have no dietary restrictions during treatment.

Boosted Confidence

Your smile is often the first thing people notice about you. Using aligners can help you make a memorable first impression and feel more confident in everyday life by giving you a more attractive appearance.

From the minute I walked through the door I felt that I was finally in the right place to have the years of neglecting my teeth attended to. I was introduced to the entire staff including both working partners. I felt like royalty and a member of their family. Each visit has been pleasant and everything explained to me. I would recommend RDA to anyone seeking the best in dentistry .

Invest in Your Oral Health with Invisalign

While Invisalign is typically thought of as a cosmetic dental procedure, it provides a host of oral health benefits as well. Straighter teeth are easier to clean because they provide fewer hard-to-reach areas for plaque to accumulate, which also helps you avoid dental issues such as cavities or gum disease from occurring in the future. Straighter teeth can also alleviate symptoms of TMJ by correcting bite issues and relieving pressure in the jaw. By straightening your teeth, we can enhance the appearance of your smile while reducing the risk of other serious dental conditions.

Take a Look at How Invisalign Works

Over time, each consecutive aligner will gently guide your teeth into proper alignment.

A Simplified Treatment Process  What Happens During Invisalign Treatment


During your initial consultation at our Ridgewood office serving Bergen County, our dentists will examine your teeth and bite using advanced technology. If we determine Invisalign is right for you, we'll take impressions of your teeth and send these images to a dental lab.


Invisalign technicians will create your fully customized set of aligner trays using your impressions. The number of trays will depend on the extent of treatment required to straighten your teeth. Once the trays are ready, you'll return to our office to try them on and receive treatment instructions.


You will wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. You'll move onto the next pair of clear aligner trays about every two weeks. Patients will return to our office every six weeks so our dentists can monitor progress and ensure everything is on track.


Your straightened smile is complete. The treatment timeline varies from patient to patient, but most achieve their desired results in about a year. During your last appointment, our dentists will provide aftercare instructions to maintain your results.

More Invisalign Options For All Your Dental Needs 

Invisalign Express

Invisalign Express

Want straighter teeth in a fraction of the time? You may qualify for Invisalign Express if you have minor misalignment issues. Invisalign Express can deliver results in six months or less, depending on the case.

Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen

Are you interested in clear aligners for your teenage child? Invisalign Teen has an indicator on the trays to determine if they are being worn for the appropriate amount of time each day.

Invisalign Attachments

Invisalign Attachments

In some instances, we may recommend adding attachments as part of Invisalign treatment. These are tiny tooth-colored bumps bonded to the teeth to achieve specific tooth movement and positioning.

Maintaining Your Stunning Results

After you've achieved your desired results, you'll have to take a few simple steps to maintain them. Patients must wear the last set of their clear aligners (or a custom retainer) to bed every night. This ensures the teeth remain in their proper position and don't shift out of place. Failing to do so can require costly retreatment in the future. We also recommend keeping up with your routine dental visits at our Ridgewood office and practicing good oral hygiene habits.
