Your Monroe Township Orthodontist
Dr. Leiva loves helping people develop beautiful, healthy smiles that improve their self-esteem and confidence. Her favorite part of the job, however, is getting to know you during treatment and seeing your new smile transform your life.
Dr. Leiva spent her entire higher education focused on oral healthcare. She attended Fairleigh Dickinson University where she earned her Associate’s degree, Registered Dental Hygienist degree, and Doctorate of Dental Medicine (DMD).
From there, Dr. Leiva went on to complete her orthodontic training at New York University. She continues to stay up-to-date with orthodontic advancements so that she can offer patients throughout Monroe Township the most comfortable and efficient treatment methods.
Dr. Leiva’s continuing orthodontics education includes attending local and national conferences to learn from the leading experts.
Your Monroe Township Orthodontist
Braces from Monroe Orthodontics are an excellent choice for correcting complex tooth issues. Since they can sometimes work faster at aligning teeth and closing gaps than other treatments might, patients may experience shorter overall treatment times. Braces don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments can, meaning Monroe Township braces are a cost-effective orthodontic option.
Traditional metal braces are one of the most efficient orthodontic tools we have. They’re made out of metal or ceramic brackets that are affixed to the teeth, then connected by wires and tiny rubber bands or elastics. These brackets, wires, and bands work together to apply the gentle pressure that will gradually move the teeth into the positions we want them to be in as long as you have regular adjustments with Dr. Leiva.
Monroe Township Invisalign
Invisalign is incredibly popular with both patients and orthodontists throughout Monroe Township and is the top alternative to traditional braces. Instead of brackets and bands, the Invisalign system uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are made of a comfortable plastic material and customized to fit snugly over your teeth. To keep your teeth moving in the direction you want them to, you’ll need to switch your invisible trays out for the next one in the series every 1-2 weeks as directed by Dr. Leiva.
The Invisalign system can only work if the recommended guidelines are followed to a tee! Aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day throughout treatment. If patients neglect to wear the aligners as directed, it can impede the results and also add time to the orthodontic process.
Invisalign is at its most efficient when correcting many of the most common orthodontic issues. For some complex cases, Invisalign may not be a good option. A free consultation with Dr. Leiva at Monroe Orthodontics in Monroe Township will allow us to determine your eligibility for Invisalign.
