What do I need to know about teeth whitening? 
Most patients are candidates for teeth whitening, but we recommend an examination and evaluation by a dentist to detect any decay or gum disease that would need to be addressed prior to bleaching. In addition, teeth should be professionally cleaned before bleaching to expedite the process.

Everyone’s teeth will lighten, but dentists are unable to determine how light your teeth will become. The lighter teeth are before bleaching means that they will not lighten by as many shades. Artificial materials used in dentistry like existing crowns and bonding, do not respond to any type of bleaching. Only natural tooth structure will be affected by bleaching.

Some patients may experience sensitivity, which usually subsides in 48 hrs. Desensitizing toothpastes will hasten the process.

In-office bleaching can create dramatic results in a 2 hr. appointment. Professional home bleach systems as well as over the counter kits can provide noticeable results in a few days. They will usually achieve maximum results in 2-4 weeks.

Does orthodontic treatment still usually take two years or more? 
Such long treatments are less common today than in the past, and advanced technologies can be used to significantly reduce treatment times. Acceledent uses micro pulses (vibrations) to stimulate the bone remodeling process and thus accelerate movement of the teeth. Patients use it for 20 minutes a day. Propel Excellerator is a device we use chairside; most Invisalign patients we treat with Propel are able to switch aligners every 3-4 days.

These treatment modalities enable us to reduce treatment times by 30 to 50 percent. They are compatible with traditional braces and with Invisalign too. Both Propel and Acceledent help prevent “white spot” lesions which can occur during prolonged orthodontic treatment, Acceledent has also been successfully used to relieve discomfort experienced by some patients immediately after their braces are adjusted.

How do you know when your child needs braces? 
Most people assume their child isn't a candidate for braces until they lose their baby teeth. The optimum age for evaluation is between the ages of 6 and 9, when permanent front teeth begin to erupt. This makes it possible to diagnose tooth, jaw and airway problems and determine the best time for treatment.

Early treatment allows us to: 
-correct thumb sucking, tongue thrusting and help minor speech problems 
-correct crossbites and underbites 
-correct and guide the growth of your child’s jaw into the ideal bite position, which can benefit your child’s profile 
-create space for crowded teeth 
-avoid the need for future permanent tooth extractions

Sometimes we recommend delaying treatment until they have all adult teeth. In those cases, we see your child yearly to track skeletal growth, eruption of the permanent teeth and address issues that may develop.

Do I really need to take my 1 year old to the dentist? 
If you’re not sure about your child’s first checkup, it might be sooner than you think! The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the doctors at Growing Smiles recommend that children visit a dentist by their first birthday. Great oral health starts with the first tooth.

Cavities can form as soon as you get teeth. We see young infants with cavities, primarily due to the introduction of juice into their diet, or a child sleeping with any drink other than water. Children are often given candy at a very young age which affects not only their teeth, but eating patterns. Once a child tastes candy, they usually want more leading to the formation of multiple cavities, and changes in overall eating habits. When we see children at age 1, we examine the teeth, and provide useful dietary advice. Our goal is to prevent cavities in the first place.

Is all Invisalign the same?
Questions, questions …. We love answering questions! As you are very likely aware, Invisalign is the biggest change in orthodontics since sliced bread! We call it a paradigm shift, which is a major change in the way we do things.

So, is ALL Invisalign the same? Well, the answer is yes ….. and no. Invisalign consists of clear plastic trays that put pressure on your teeth to move them, just like braces. The difference is that braces only attach to the teeth on one small spot while Invisalign covers every surface of every tooth, giving us more control.

So, is ALL Invisalign the same? Well, yes …… and no. There is an art and skill involved in moving teeth. The skill is based on training and experience. At Morrone & Kaye, we have extensive continuing education and are included in the top 1% of all Invisalign providers in the country. We do Invisalign when others say it’s not possible. So, is ALL Invisalign the same?

Are there products similar to Invisalign that cost less?
There are, but Invisalign is the most advanced and the choice of reputable practices throughout the US. It has been successfully used in over four million cases, more than all of its competitors combined.

While Invisalign is by far the leading system of its kind, it is by no means an automated process. For each patient, Invisalign proposes a treatment plan created by a technician with input from a computer algorithm. That initial plan must be approved by the your Invisalign doctor, who is responsible for performing the modifications necessary to achieve the best results.

The more experienced doctors – who understand Invisalign best - always modify these plans and make the necessary corrections to achieve the best outcomes. Use Invisalign’s online directory to find the doctors in your area who treat the most Invisalign patients.
