Dr. Menker Named in New Jersey’s Top Dentist’s

July 12th, 2014

New Jersey Monthly Magazine asked 6,426 New Jersey dentists to tell us which of their fellow dentists they consider New Jersey's best practitioners. The result: Dr. Craig Menker is on the list of the state's 441 Top Dentists, as chosen by his peers.

"Dr. Menker is honored to begin his 23rd year of creating perfect smiles with this award. The brand new state of the art office in Warren has been designed to provide the highest quality treatment in the most comfortable environment. I offer the latest treatment technologies for esthetic and efficient results including Invisalign for adults, InvisalignTeen for teenagers and Incognito customized lingual braces."  This information was originally published in the July 2014 issue of New Jersey Monthly Magazine.

Don’t worry if you think these sound expensive, Dr. Menker and his expert staff will work with you to make sure that your treatment fits not only your budget but your lifestyle too. Some people would prefer that their orthodontic treatment be hidden. Dr. Menker is aware of this and offers hidden braces in multiple formats. Contact Menker Braces today at 908.756.6006 to schedule your complementary consultation and he will discuss your options for your more confident smile!

Craig L. Menker DMD is your Warren Hills Orthodontist. Menker Braces also has a satellite office in South Plainfield, NJ for your convenience. Visit www.menkerbraces.com for more information.

Smart Clip Braces

June 3rd, 2013

Dr. Menker Uses "Smart Clip" Self-Ligating Braces (No Rubber bands)

I have been using the Smart Clip braces for years now with excellent results.  With the Standard braces, I use tiny elastic bands to hold the wire onto your braces. Advancements in technology now bring self-ligating braces onto the scene. Instead of rubber bands, 3M™ Self-Ligating Braces use a unique clip to hold the wire in place. So your teeth stay cleaner and you can spend less time in chair at our office!

The SmartClip™ Self-Ligating Braces technology eliminates the need for elastic bands. Instead, an innovative clip system does the trick. That's a big change for the better when it comes to your smile.

  • Smaller SmartClip™ braces move teeth more quickly
  • Smooth, contoured surfaces offer a more comfortable fit
  • Self-ligating design keeps my appointments with you to a minimum
  • Without elastic bands, braces are easier to keep clean

Clarity™ SL Self-Ligating Braces provide all of the benefits of self-ligating braces with the added advantage of translucent ceramic. Clarity Braces blend in with your teeth and provide a smooth, comfortable and extremely durable fit.  I like these braces because you have absolutely nothing to stain or pick up pigment!

  • Engineered to move your teeth quickly
  • Durable, translucent ceramic blends with your teeth
  • Potential for fewer and faster appointments
  • Allows for easy cleaning and reduces plaque build-up
  • Smooth, molded edges provide added comfort

Show off your new braces – they're hard at work on your smile every second of every day.  Please ask our wonderful staff about these braces.  Also, check out our website for more info and videos of the Smart Clip Braces in action.
