Invisalign Braces in New York, NY
Our Midtown, New York family dental office provides Invisalign to our patients. Invisalign is a unique state-of-the-art orthodontic therapy that straightens teeth without the use of metal brackets or wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of plastic alignment trays similar in appearance to a clear retainer. These trays slowly move the teeth into the desired position and are replaced with a new set of trays every few weeks.
Invisible Braces for Adults
Many adults look for a way to straighten their teeth, but most prefer not to wear traditional braces. Invisalign allows adults and teens alike to straighten their teeth in a manner that is essentially invisible to the people around them. Because the alignment trays are clear, they are not noticeable when you talk or smile.
Reduce Gum Disease
Teeth that are crowded and misaligned are more difficult to keep clean. This causes crowded teeth to be at an increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease. By correcting the positioning of teeth, Invisalign patients can improve their oral hygiene in problem areas.
Improve the Appearance of Your Smile
Not only does a straighter smile increase self-esteem, but also it can also greatly affect the impression that you make on others. One study showed that people that had more aesthetic smiles were more likely to be offered a job during an interview, and a higher starting salary than their competitors.
A Convenient Way to Straighten Your Teeth Without Metal Braces
While traditional braces are difficult to keep clean and have special diet restrictions, Invisalign braces do not. Simply remove your alignment trays then brush, and floss as normal. The trays are easy to keep clean with your toothbrush and tap water. During meals simply remove the trays and eat whatever you like.
Invisalign braces are one of the most comfortable orthodontic options available. There is never a chance for broken wires, brackets or irritation to the delicate cheek tissue.
