Welcome to New Jersey’s First & Only Exclusively Invisalign Office!
At Clearsmile we enjoy the experience of working with our patients using the latest technologies possible.
- Digital Impression
The iTero Element intraoral digital impression scanner is the latest in digital dentistry. The scanner can create highly accurate and precise digital models of your teeth to be used for manufacturing retainers, Invisalign treatment, and much more. The iTero Element records the surfaces of your teeth at 6000 frames per second as one of our assistants slides it along your teeth. What’s so great about that? Well, now there is no need for gooey impressions and we also have digital models of your teeth stored in the cloud forever. If you ever need a new retainer, in most cases we can send you one without you ever having to come into the office.
- Invisalign Treatment
After the doctor creates your customized treatment plan, the series of clear aligners are manufactured to achieve the desired result. The number of trays you will have is dependent on how much movement is required to give you a perfect smile. Simple cases, for example a patient that had braces as a teen but lost their retainer, can be as few as 5 aligners. While more complex cases can have 20-30 aligners. The doctor will recommend you wear each aligner either 1 or 2 weeks before progressing to the next aligner, again depending on case type. Once you have progressed through your aligner series and have the smile of your dreams, you will have the option to decide which type of complimentary retainer system you would prefer (ie bonded permanent retainers vs clear removable retainers, or both!).
- Accelerated Treatment
We understand that some patients may need their treatment to progress more rapidly due to a wedding, graduation, or other special event. We offer several solutions to increase the rate at which bone can remodel and therefore increase the rate at which teeth can move through the bone. We specialize in a cyclic loading (vibration) appliance that stimulates the bone remodeling cells to accelerate the rate of tooth movement. We are also certified to provide an acceleration procedure known as MOPs—which stands for micro-osteoperforations. Ask us about these acceleration options at your visit!
We know you’re going to be over the moon when you finally have the smile of your dreams. However, in order to keep it straight and beautiful, retention is required. Many patients had braces as a teen, lost their retainer in college, and are now seeking re-treatment. The simple explanation of relapse is that the body is constantly changing.
Our bones remodel, our soft tissue loses tonicity, and other changes over time can affect the position of our teeth. All of our retention systems are included with your treatment, so all you have to do is decide which system fits your life. We have “permanent” retainers (fixed bonded retainer) that are bonded behind the teeth for 24/7 retention and also clear removable retainers that resemble an aligner which a patient can just pop in at night to sleep in.
Still wondering what to choose?
HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUR NEW SMILE
Invisalign can ONLY move your teeth if it is in your mouth ☺. We recommend that you wear your Aligners at least 20 out of 24 hours day and night, except to eat, brush and floss your teeth.
Because the Aligners are designed to sequentially move your teeth, it is very important to wear each Aligner in the order prescribed. You’ll wear each Aligner for the amount of time prescribed by the doctor and then change to your new Aligner.
Keep your regularly scheduled appointments – this is the only way we can be sure the treatment is progressing as planned. Frequently, for patients with busy schedules, a greater number of Aligners may be given at each appointment and appointment intervals can be extended as long as the patient is compliant.
- TO INSERT: To help avoid confusion, each Aligner is engraved with a ‘U’ for upper or an ‘L’ for lower and the number of the Aligner. When inserting, gently push the Aligner over your front teeth. Then, apply equal pressure. using your fingertips, to the tops of your left and right molars until the Aligner snaps into place.
- TO STORE: Store Your Invisalign Aligners in the two Aligner cases which are included in your starter kit. We recommend that you store your Invisalign Aligners in your plastic case when not in your mouth. This will protect them from potential damage. Also, do not bite your Aligners into position. This may damage them.
- TO REMOVE: Use your fingers, and simultaneously apply equal downward pressure on the left and right side of the Aligner and lift it off your rear molars. Then using your fingers, gently lift the Aligner off your front teeth. Immediately rinse and store your Aligners in the protective case provided with your starter kit. To help prevent damage, avoid unnecessary removal.

ONE OF ITS KIND
In Clearsmile, Dr. Rangwala has created the first dedicated Invisalign orthodontic office in Garwwod. Sure there are other orthodontic offices in New Jersey, however none of them have dedicated their entire practice to the use of clear aligners the way Clearsmile has. What does this mean for you? It means you have a team of expert orthodontic specialists working to make your smile dreams come true!
INVISALIGN IS NOT A PRODUCT
Invisalign treatment performed by one doctor will be different than the next. It is not a product, like say a shirt that you buy from one website because it is selling for less and has free shipping. Clear aligners are much like braces in that they are used as a tool or appliance for doctors to use to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. Your smile, bite, and long term dental health can only be improved to the extent that the doctor has the proficient skills necessary to use the Invisalign appliance. When choosing your provider, you want to make sure they have treated and continue to treat many cases successfully. At Clearsmile, you can rest assured knowing that Dr. Rangwala is designated by Align Technology, Inc (the creators of the aligner system) as a Diamond Plus Invisalign Provider–this is the highest distinction attainable.
WHY CHOOSE US FOR INVISALIGN?
- You are guaranteed an orthodontist creates your treatment plan.
It’s simple—if you want your orthodontist to be one of the most experienced Invisalign providers available, then you should choose us. Dr. Rangwala designs every patient’s customized treatment plan–not an assistant or technician. Orthodontists complete 4 years of dental school just like your general or family dentist, however they’re also accepted into competitive residency programs that range between 2-3 years after dental school where they devote their entire practice to straightening teeth and correcting bites with braces or Invisalign.
- You can be assured that we have received the best training.
As a Diamond Plus Invisalign provider, we are highly experienced to meet your goals properly and most efficiently. Only a doctor who has completed Invisalign training is qualified to determine whether or not Invisalign treatment is right for you. We spend countless hours of continued education on the use of Invisalign’s clear removable aligners to ensure you receive the best care available.
- We can treat a variety of cases.
As a result of his commitment, experience and training, Dr. Rangwala is able to treat moderate to complex orthodontic cases using Invisalign’s clear removable aligners. Even if you or your dentist do not think you are a good candidate for Invisalign, you might be surprised by what we can achieve!
- At Clearsmile, we allow you to distinguish the experts from the others.
Remember, Invisalign treatment is not a product that will give you the same result from one provider to the next.It’s a technique used as part of an overall approach to orthodontics, and your result with clear aligners can only be as good as the doctor providing that treatment. Our experts put their skill and experience to work for you.
- We can show you results.
Because we are experienced, potential patients will be able to see pictures of our other patients’ success stories!

It’s true! No matter what you’ve believed in the past, a confident, radiant smile can be within reach. And if you think about it, improving your smile is an important investment, because you’re doing it for yourself.
How much does Invisalign cost?
