Straighter teeth will boost your self-esteem when you smile. In addition, proper teeth alignment means an end to discomfort and misaligned jaws. Even your oral hygiene will be more effective when you can’t floss between your teeth without hindrance. And now, with Invisalign, you can get excellent orthodontic treatment without the negative aspects of traditional metal braces.
This is not to say that metal braces are bad. They certainly do a great job of repositioning your teeth. But they stand out like a sore thumb, don’t they? It’s easy to feel self-conscious about showing your teeth when you are wearing metal braces. You might also experience mouth irritation or soreness at times. And there is a list of foods, especially those that are sticky, chewy, or crunchy, that you have to avoid during your orthodontic care. When our Midtown East orthodontist fits you with Invisalign, though, you won’t have any of those drawbacks to be concerned about. Invisalign is a system of clear plastic aligners. They’re undetectable, so to anyone else, it looks as if you are not wearing anything on your teeth. There is no discomfort when you wear an Invisalign aligner. And you can remove them to eat, brush, and, floss. So enjoy all of your favorite foods. Using state-of-the-art 3D computer software, our Midtown East orthodontist will create your aligners right here at our office. There are no messy impressions and no waiting for the dental lab. You will use between 12 and 48 aligners, each for about two weeks, to complete your treatment. Each serves a unique and valuable role in the process. Just come in every six weeks to have your progress checked. Frequent visits for adjustments are unnecessary.
Why wait? Call our office and we will schedule you to come in for a consultation with our Midtown East orthodontist. Find out if Invisalign is the right option for you.
