Invisalign Teen Invisalign® Orthodontics for Teens and Adults

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an aesthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces.

Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics.

Straight Wire Orthodontics

Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology, now more than ever, Old Tappan Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces. Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces. They are smaller and now more comfortable than they ever have been in the past. Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are, therefore, less visible on your teeth than metal braces, and are a great option for older teens or professionals.

iTero Digital Impressions

An accurate impression is essential for effective treatment in orthodontic care. The iOC scanner at Old Tappan Orthodontics captures the contours of tooth and gingival structures, producing an accurate digital orthodontic scan in just minutes. Say goodbye to the goop!

Propel Propel® Orthodontics

We are proud to feature PROPEL® Orthodontics - innovative devices and procedures for shifting teeth quickly and with reduced discomfort. The PROPEL® System is used in conjunction with other orthodontic procedures, including Invisalign® and traditional braces, to help move teeth up to 50% faster than with just Invisalign® or traditional braces.
