If you’re unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, but are hesitant to endure months - or years - of a mouthful of metal and wires to straighten them, Invisalign® could be the solution you’re looking for. For older teens and adults, Invisalign corrects common problems such as gaps, crowding, and overlapping without the discomfort or unappealing appearance of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is so discreet no one will notice you’re wearing them. At Downtown Dental Studio, located in the financial district of New York City, our dentists have enhanced the smiles of countless patients using Invisalign.
You’ve likely heard of Invisalign, but you may not know all the benefits this technology offers. Compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign can give you the smile you want in a shorter time frame with a higher level of comfort and at about the same cost. Here are just some of the reasons people love their Invisalign treatment.
Unlike traditional orthodontic braces, Invisalign completely eliminates the use of uncomfortable and unsightly metal screws and wires. Instead, a series of plastic trays are fitted snugly over the teeth, applying slight amounts of pressure to readjust your smile.
Everybody’s mouth is designed differently, and Invisalign allows us to design a series of alignment trays for your mouth’s specific needs. We create your Invisalign trays based on your current and desired tooth placement, with each tray bringing you a step closer to the final result.
Many people over the age of 40 think it’s too late to get a smile adjustment. Not true! Invisalign has no upper age limit, so it’s never too late to begin work on your smile.
Unlike traditional metal braces, you don’t have to worry about removing difficult-to-chew or sticky foods from your diet with Invisalign. Instead, simply remove the trays when eating, brushing your teeth, or flossing.
You’ll visit your doctor twice per month so your alignment progress can be assessed. These appointments are quick and painless, unlike the uncomfortable wire-tightening visits people undergo with metal braces.
We recommend you wear your Invisalign trays at least 22 hours per day for the fastest results, but you can remove them while you sleep if you prefer. Most people say their trays don’t bother them at night at all, however!
Researchers have found that people treated with Invisalign experience better gum health than those who use traditional metal braces.
