A beautifully aligned, white and bright smile can improve your confidence and make you feel like an entirely new person. Invisalign now makes that perfect smile cheaper and easier to attain. Using high-tech computer imaging to create a series of transparent and removable aligners, Invisalign can straighten your teeth without unsightly metal wires or brackets. The aligners are comfortable, low profile, and custom made clear plastic trays. Most people may not even know you are wearing the aligners!
There are obvious cosmetic advantages to using Invisalign over traditional metal braces. Not only is this an invisible alternative to metal wires and brackets, aligners can be removed to eat, drink and brush your teeth, giving you a more comfortable fit compared to traditional Jackson Heights orthodontics. Aligners are typically less painful than braces and they are often cheaper than other corrective forms of cosmetic or restorative dentistry. As your teeth change and your smile improves, you will change aligners every two weeks, wearing them for 20-22 hours a day.
Like all dental procedures, however, there are a few drawbacks. Firstly, Invisalign is a purely cosmetic treatment and other dental problems, like bite correction, still require braces. Additionally, some Invisalign wearers may require attachments fitted to particular teeth that need to be pulled down or rotated. These attachments may be visible. Like all orthodontic procedures, a retainer will need to be worn at night once you’ve completed your Invisalign procedure to prevent teeth from drifting back to their original crooked state.
