Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move your teeth into a proper, healthy, and attractive position. The orthodontic treatment also closes the gaps between your teeth.
A consultation and full examination helps the team at Dental House design your orthodontic treatment plan. After assessing the condition of your tooth alignment, they use in-office technology to provide the necessary data for Invisalign to design your custom-made aligners.
Once you receive the aligners, you wear them up to 20-22 hours a day for best results. After one to two weeks in one set of aligners, you change to the next ones to continue your smile-straightening process.
Invisalign is effective in treating a number of smile concerns. These include:
Invisalign can also help you achieve generally straighter teeth.
You may have thought the only way to achieve a straight smile was with braces. Sure, braces have been around for years, and the metal brackets work. The downside: braces are noticeable!
Invisalign solves that problem. It’s the clear alternative to metal braces, brackets, and wires.
And Invisalign aligners are removable, so they don’t interfere with your lifestyle while eating, during sports participation, or when brushing and flossing. With braces, you must avoid specific foods that are crunchy and chewy to avoid breaking the brackets. Keeping good oral hygiene with braces is also challenging, but with Invisalign, your routine for cleaning your teeth doesn’t change.
The aligners are made from a special plastic that is very hard for others to detect. The aligners fit right over your existing teeth, so only you know they’re there.
When your aligners are returned from the Invisalign lab, you’ll return to Dental House for an initial fitting. At this appointment, they’ll provide you with instructions for daily use, how to care for your aligners, and when to transition to a new set of aligners.
Your follow-up appointments to the convenient Greenwich Village office enable the dentists to monitor your progress toward a new smile -- with straight, healthy teeth.
