What is orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners to move crooked teeth into proper alignment. The main orthodontics treatment available for adults and teens at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates is Invisalign.
What are the benefits of orthodontics treatment?
Some of the many benefits associated with orthodontics treatment at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates include:
- Straighter teeth

- Fewer gaps
- Less teeth crowding
- Clearer speech
- Easier teeth cleaning

Feeling good about your smile is one of the main benefits associated with undergoing orthodontics treatment. With Invisalign, the aligners you wear to straighten teeth are clear, so most people don’t know you’re wearing them.
Is orthodontics treatment right for me?
To find out if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign orthodontic treatments, your Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates provider discusses your oral health history and desired outcome. They take dental X-rays and examine your teeth and gums to develop a personalized treatment plan.
What should I expect during orthodontics treatment?
During orthodontics treatment at Charles M. Marks, DDS & Dental Associates, you can expect the following, depending on the method:
If you opt for Invisalign treatment, your provider fits you for a series of clear aligners. They digitally scan your teeth and have a dental lab develop custom-fit aligners. When they are ready, you can begin wearing the aligners 20-22 hours daily for about a year.
You can take the aligners out of your mouth to eat and brush your teeth. After about two weeks, switch to the next set of aligners in your series until your teeth reach their ideal alignment. Care for the aligners by using an Invisalign cleaning system or brushing them with a toothbrush.
