Dr. Tripthi Shetty of Modern Dental Studio in East Brunswick, New Jersey, works alongside patients to help them achieve the smile of their dreams. In many instances, patients who long to have a naturally straight, beautiful smile will benefit from orthodontic services. Straightening the teeth with orthodontia is the most effective way of improving the health and appearance of the smile!
Why should I straighten my smile?
There are many reasons why you should consider straightening your teeth and smile. For one, straighter teeth are easier to clean, leading to better oral health. This is because there are fewer crevices and areas for food particles and bacteria to accumulate. Additionally, straighter teeth can give you a boost of confidence – something we all could use more of! Many patients who improve their smile with orthodontic treatment find they are smiling more and hiding their teeth less in social situations. Finally, in some cases, straightening your teeth can actually improve your bite and make it easier to chew and speak properly. That is important to prevent wear on the teeth due to poor alignment of the bite, such as crossbites, overbites, and underbites. As you can see, there are many good reasons to explore your options when it comes to teeth straightening!
Improving dental health is easy with aligner therapy. Anyone who has tartar buildup, crowding, wear on the surface, abfractions, or broken enamel on the gum line, can qualify for aligner therapy. We scan every patient with iTero so you can see how we can improve your dental health to make your teeth last for life.
What methods of teeth straightening options are available to me?
Dr. Shetty is a dental professional who can help patients straighten their smiles with a variety of different options. Patients can enjoy clear teeth straightening with Invisalign treatment using removable clear plastic aligner trays. Clear braces such as CandidPro provide patients with minor adjustments to the teeth near the front of the smile with tooth-colored brackets and wires that are far less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

The process of Invisalign® at Modern Dental Studio
Hi, this is Dr. Tripthi Shetty, and welcome to Modern Dental Studio.
What is the process of Invisalign®?
The process involving Invisalign® or Candid aligners or any aligner therapy. The first is a consult.
The consult is to visualize and look at your teeth and skeletal structure, which is the foundation of your treatment planning.
Sometimes with Invisalign®, just aligning teeth is not enough; you have to expand either the upper or lower arch, whichever is compromised. That also helps with your airway, so it’s a good thing.
We take the X-rays, take some clinical pictures, note down some questions and answers, and get back to you in a week or so.
What is the next step in the process?
The next process is once you accept the treatment plan, we send it to Invisalign®, and within three weeks or so, Invisalign® sends in the aligners, and you’re all set with the treatment.
We will place the attachments and give you a few aligners on the first visit. You don’t have to see me that often once you understand how the aligners work.
You only take it out when you’re eating something. You wear it 24/7 while in treatment once you understand, you don’t need to see me. I see patients once in two months or whenever we need the adjustments.
