Invisalign in Long Island & NYC
Discreetly Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign®
Traditionally, patients who wanted to achieve a straighter smile would need to undergo months or sometimes years of wearing metal brackets and wires in their mouths. While traditional orthodontic treatment is effective, many patients choose not to have braces placed on their teeth, even to the detriment of their oral health. Today, there is a treatment that accomplishes these same goals gently, comfortably, and discreetly, without forcing you to change your diet or lifestyle. Dental365 is a preferred provider of Invisalign® in the New York, NY, area, and our doctors can help you take the first step towards a healthy, beautifully aligned smile.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system that allows patients to discreetly and comfortably straighten their teeth with a series of alignment trays. Compared to traditional orthodontic braces, Invisalign® clear braces trays are much more comfortable. And because they are removable, you will not need to adopt significant diet or lifestyle alterations while you are undergoing treatment.
Why is Invisalign® used?
You may be a good candidate for Invisalign® treatment if you:
- Have misaligned teeth
- Have gaps in your teeth
- Would like to correct tooth alignment without traditional braces
- Would like to improve your smile discretely with invisible braces
What does Invisalign® involve?
The Invisalign® braces system is an easy way to align your teeth over the course of just a few simple steps, including the following:
You will begin your treatment by visiting us for a consultation with a skilled orthodontist on staff at all of our locations. During your appointment, your doctor will:
- Conduct an evaluation of your oral health
- Address your cosmetic concerns
- Discuss your treatment goals
- Determine if you are a candidate
- Take digital measurements of your smile that may include panoramic imaging and scans
This information will be sent to the Invisalign® lab and used to create your alignment trays. We can also use this data to create a digital model of what you can expect your smile to look like after treatment has been completed.
Next, you will be given a series of clear alignment trays that successively move your teeth into proper alignment. Over the course of your treatment, you will wear each Invisalign® retainer for most of the day, removing it only to eat, brush your teeth, and floss. Every two weeks you will switch to a new tray that will move your teeth closer to their appropriate position. You will return to one of our offices roughly every six weeks so that our doctors can monitor your progress and ensure your treatment is proceeding on schedule.
