Beautiful, Straight Smiles For Life
Many individuals needs braces at some point in life. This can be for either cosmetic or functional reasons. The most obvious use of braces is to straighten crooked teeth and improve the appearance of your smile. However, there are also several more important reasons. Teeth that are crooked or misaligned are often harder to clean and therefore more likely to decay. Misaligned teeth can also wear down quicker and may also lead to pain in the head, neck, and face. Without braces, some patients may also experience jaw problems as a result of spacing or overcrowding.
Orthodontic procedures can be a significantly cheaper option than the additional care that may be required to treat the dental complications that arise from misaligned teeth. Crooked teeth can cause a host of oral health problems, including:
- Misalignment of the jaw leading to abnormal wear of the teeth and TMJ
- Tooth decay and worsening gum disease
- Aesthetic issues
Orthodontic technology has improved in recent years and today’s braces are more comfortable and attractive than in the past. Patients can now receive braces made from metal, ceramic, or plastic in a variety of colors including transparent. Modern wires and brackets are also able to move crooked teeth faster and more comfortably than ever before.
Orthodontic treatment is a proven method of improving function and esthetics for patients of all ages. To learn more about braces in Tinton Falls, NJ, contact Dr. Bilow and schedule your consultation today!

FDA approved Invisalign® is the “invisible” way to straighten your teeth without wearing conventional metal braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners to move your teeth. Because you remove your aligners before you eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing. This technology is also more comfortable, avoiding the mouth abrasions that can be caused by the metal and wires of conventional braces. And this technology is also more convenient, since you are likely to spend less time in our office getting adjustments.
Invisalign® uses 3-D computer imaging technology to design the complete treatment plan, from the initial teeth positioning to the desired final positioning. This 3-D imaging allows you to preview the final positioning of your teeth before you start treatment. Custom-made aligners are created based on the imaging information. Each of these aligners moves your teeth incrementally and is worn for about 2 weeks. Typically, you will visit Dr. Bilow once every 6 weeks for “progress reports.” Not every situation can be treated with Invisalign, so call the office to get an evaluation to see if you can be helped with this new technology.
The Latest Technology Makes It Possible
Upon an initial examination, Dr. Bilow will decide if Invisalign® is right for you. He will write up a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth, which is then submitted to Invisalign®. Using the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign® translates Dr. Bilow’s instructions into a series of nearly undetectable aligners. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, moving your teeth gradually, week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you’ve achieved the desired result.
