Dental Patient Wearing Invisalign

Your smile is a direct source of confidence, a memorable part of who you are, and how you demonstrate your feelings. Don’t let embarrassment from crooked teeth keep you from living openly and confidently in your smile! If you want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want cumbersome metal braces, our dentist in Manhattan, NY has a solution. Invisalign® is the most discreet way to straighten teeth and can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. 

 

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic trays instead of metal braces to straighten teeth. These trays are custom-fitted to how your teeth are positioned at the beginning of your treatment and are precision-fabricated to have slight adjustments in their shape. Over the length of your treatment, they’ll gently push your teeth into a straighter position.

How Is Invisalign Better?

Aesthetically, when compared to bracket-and-wire braces, Invisalign® is virtually invisible while being worn. For adults and teens, this is a significant advantage as it does not affect your appearance during treatment. The plastic trays are made for your mouth and have no sharp edges, so they’re more comfortable than conventional braces. Invisalign clear aligners are also removable, so you can maintain your normal eating habits and oral hygiene routine.

Our Invisalign Process

The Invisalign treatment process first begins with digital impressions taken of your mouth. These impressions are incredibly precise and are used to custom design your series of clear aligners. You’ll wear these aligners for 20-22 hours each day, removing them only when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Over the next several months, your teeth will predictably move into position, while you enjoy the benefits of invisible orthodontics!
