Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth and correct dental misalignments discreetly and effectively. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, making them popular for individuals seeking a more aesthetically pleasing orthodontic solution.

Custom-designed by our dentist in New York, NY, for each patient based on digital impressions, Invisalign aligners gradually shift teeth into their desired positions without metal brackets or wires. The benefits of Invisalign extend beyond its discreet appearance, offering increased comfort, convenience, and flexibility. Since the aligners are removable, they allow easy cleaning, enabling better oral hygiene throughout treatment. Additionally, Invisalign aligners are comfortable to wear and do not require dietary restrictions since they can be removed while eating.

With shorter treatment times compared to traditional braces and fewer office visits required, Invisalign offers a convenient and efficient orthodontic solution for achieving a straighter, healthier smile. 

How Does Invisalign Work? 

  • The journey to a straighter smile begins with a consultation with our dentist at L.E.S. Dental Group. During this initial visit, the dentist will assess your teeth, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if Invisalign is the right option. 
  • If Invisalign is deemed suitable for your needs, digital impressions, photographs, and teeth X-rays will be taken to create a precise 3D model of your smile. Using advanced computer software, the dentist will design a customized treatment plan that maps out the gradual movement of your teeth throughout the Invisalign process.
  • The clear aligners will be specifically custom-fabricated for your teeth based on the treatment plan. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately 1-2 weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series.
  • Throughout the treatment period, which typically lasts several months to a year or more, you will wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day, removing them only for eating, drinking (anything except water), brushing, and flossing. As you progress through each set of aligners, your teeth will gradually shift into alignment according to the treatment plan.
  • Regular check-up appointments with our dentist will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure your treatment is proceeding as planned. The treatment plan may be adjusted as needed to achieve the desired results.
  • Once the desired tooth alignment is achieved, a retainer may be recommended to maintain the new position of your teeth and prevent them from shifting back over time. Contact us today to learn more about this revolutionary treatment!

The Benefits of Invisalign 

Discreet Appearance 

Invisalign aligners are made from clear, transparent plastic and are virtually invisible when worn. This makes them ideal for individuals who wish to straighten their teeth discreetly without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.

Comfortable 

Invisalign aligners in New York, NY, are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, with smooth edges that won't irritate your gums or cheeks. Unlike metal braces, which can cause discomfort and soreness due to the wires and brackets, Invisalign aligners provide a comfortable orthodontic experience.

Removability 

One of the most significant advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable. You can easily take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss, allowing you to maintain better oral hygiene throughout your treatment. This also means you can enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about dietary restrictions. 

Predictable Results 

Invisalign treatment is meticulously planned using advanced 3D imaging technology. Before treatment begins, you'll clearly understand how your teeth will move and what your smile will look like at each stage of the process. This predictability ensures that you're satisfied with the final results. 

Convenience 

With Invisalign, you'll spend less time in the dentist's chair than with traditional braces. While you'll still need periodic check-ups to monitor your progress, you won't require as many adjustments or emergency visits for broken brackets or wires.

Improved Oral Health 

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can maintain better oral hygiene throughout the treatment. Brushing and flossing are more accessible without obstructing brackets and wires, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and staining.

Versatility 

Invisalign can address many orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, and crossbites. Whether you have mild or more complex alignment issues, Invisalign can provide an effective solution. 

Confidence Boost 

Achieving a straighter, more aligned smile can boost your confidence and self-esteem. With Invisalign, you can feel confident throughout your treatment as well, knowing that your orthodontic journey is discreet, comfortable, and yielding noticeable results.

No Dietary Restrictions 

Since Invisalign aligners are removable, you can enjoy your favorite foods and beverages without restrictions. Unlike traditional braces, there are also no concerns about food getting stuck in brackets or wires.

Customized Treatment 

Each set of Invisalign aligners is custom-made for you based on your specific orthodontic needs and treatment goals. This personalized approach ensures optimal results and patient satisfaction.
