Invisalign – Clear Orthodontics That Are Barely Noticeable
Our doctors provide the latest in dental advancements, and they are very pleased to offer orthodontic patients Invisalign™ invisible aligners. They are clear, thermoplastic aligners that will straighten crooked teeth and correct gapped teeth and overbite, underbite, and crossbite. Amazingly, they can change these unsightly problems in as few as 9 – 15 months!
With 3-D computerized imaging, our dentist will prepare a treatment plan. This starts with the current position of your teeth and ends with your new, even smile. According to this plan, sets of aligners are created to fit over your natural teeth. You start by wearing the first set, and every two weeks advance to the next set. Gradually and gently, your teeth are moved to their new position until the goal of your new smile is reached. You only need to be evaluated in our office every 1 – 2 months. Based on your needs and goals, treatment time varies slightly with each individual.
Advantages to the Invisalign System from Invisalign dentist Manhattan
The best advantage to wearing invisible aligners is no one will know you are in the process of straightening your teeth. This is especially important for adults with their career and personal life. These aligners are only noticeable if someone looks very closely at your teeth. This lets you retain all your confidence during your treatment time.
People rave about how comfortable they are to wear. There is no irritation from wires, metal brackets, or headgear. And you spend less time at the dentist’s office, as adjustments do not need to be made – only occasional evaluation on your progress.
And no longer do you have to be cautious of what you eat, as these aligners are removable for proper cleaning of your teeth. You simply wear them all day and while you sleep. You can keep your teeth free of any plaque build-up and lessen the chances of decay developing.
