Invisalign® Improving Midtown East Smiles
If you didn’t have the chance to undergo orthodontics as a child, then now as an adult you may still wish for a straight smile. However, the idea of wearing metal brackets and wires at your age can be less that appealing. You may not be willing to risk the effect that wearing traditional braces might have on your professional advancement and social life. In that case, consider Invisalign®.
Invisalign, as the name suggests, is a practically invisible orthodontic system. Using clear plastic aligners that are customized to correct your alignment, Invisalign gradually moves your teeth into place. And because these aligners are made of smooth BPA-free plastic, there’s no chance of mouth abrasions and gum sores, which are often the case with metal braces. Moreover, these aligners are removable. So, when it’s time to eat, you simply take out your aligners and enjoy all of your favorite foods. Likewise, with brushing and flossing your teeth; maintaining good oral health is much easier with Invisalign. Otherwise, our dentists will want you to wear your Invisalign aligners all day every day during treatment.
The Invisalign Process
When you come to our Midtown Manhattan dental practice to begin your journey to a straight smile with Invisalign, we use 3D imaging to help us develop your treatment plan. With this imaging, you will actually be able to see how your teeth will move through each step of the process—and this happens even before your begin to wear your aligners. This treatment plan is then sent to the Invisalign lab, which will carefully fabricates each one of your aligners. These arrive in a series of sets—one for your upper arch and one for the lower. Simply wear a set for two weeks and then move on to the next. As you advance through the series, you’ll begin to see your well-aligned smile take shape. Of course, Drs. Boyd will want to monitor your progress, so you’ll need to visit our Madison Avenue dentist office about every six to eight weeks. Treatment usually takes about one year, after which you’ll have the straight and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
