What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is another option we offer at Park Smiles NYC for those who are seeking orthodontic care. For many, the primary concern for their smile is the appearance of their teeth. With Invisalign, our patients can now receive orthodontic care with clear aligning trays that will improve the appearance of teeth without having to place metal braces. Metal braces can be irritating, restrict consumption of specific foods, and make brushing and flossing a hassle. Invisalign trays can be removed easily and are easily integrated into your everyday life.
Benefits of Invisalign
Not only does Invisalign effectively straighten teeth, but also it allows adults and teens to continue doing everything they love to do, from playing recreational soccer to eating popcorn with a good movie. The best part is, since your aligners are practically invisible, everyone else will just see your natural smile throughout your treatment period and admire the stunning results at the end. The many benefits of Invisalign include:
- Invisalign Fits Busy Lifestyles: Since Invisalign aligners are made from comfortable and durable plastic that won’t poke your tongue or the insides of your cheeks, it’s easy for patients undergoing treatment to continue their favorite activities. Invisalign patients also have the flexibility to keep or remove their aligner while they participate in team sports or play a wind instrument. Such activities can often be challenging or uncomfortable with traditional metal braces.
- Invisalign is Removable: Since aligners can be taken out to brush and floss, patients can maintain normal, healthy hygiene during treatment. Invisalign can also be removed for eating so you don’t need to worry about your food getting stuck in your aligner. Anytime is a good time to eat, and there are no forbidden foods.
- It’s Simple to Clean: The fact that Invisalign aligners are removable also helps make them easy to maintain. You won’t have to take a ton of time out of your day to take care of your aligners because Invisalign cleaning kits can easily get the job done. If you don’t have a kit handy, simply brushing and rinsing your aligners with warm water will also work.
- It’s Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are made of lightweight plastic that is custom-fitted to each patient’s teeth. There are no wires or uncomfortable metal brackets rubbing the mouth or gums of patients.
- Invisalign looks great: The invisibility factor is still one of the most popular features for teens and adults alike. Invisalign treatment is very inconspicuous, making it easier to “fit in” rather than call attention to treatment. You can attend any event or have pictures taken for social media without worrying about others noticing your orthodontic treatment.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign works through the use of removable aligners instead of using the traditional non-removable braces. When you and your dentist at Park Smiles NYC decide that Invisalign is a good treatment for you, your dentist will take impressions and radiographs of your teeth so a treatment plan can be created for you. Your dentist will show you how your teeth will move and shift as your treatment comes along. Depending on the severity of your case, treatment time is variable.
When a treatment plan is created, clear tray aligners will be created to custom fit your teeth. These tray aligners are removable and can be removed when eating, brushing and flossing so that they do not interfere with your everyday life. The aligners are also made of smooth plastic so they so they do not irritate your cheeks and you do not even notice that you are wearing them. These aligner trays are replaced every two weeks with a new aligner that will help shift your teeth into the next phase of treatment.
