Invisalign® Experts in Manhattan
Invisalign is the clear way to straighten your teeth without braces. A custom-made series of aligners are created for you and only you. The alignment trays are made of a smooth, comfortable, and virtually invisible BPA free plastic that you wear over your teeth.
At Advanced Dental Arts, our board-certified orthodontist creates a treatment plan specific to you. By wearing the aligners each day, your teeth gradually and gently shift into place.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Our orthodontic team will take a set of digital x-rays, pictures, and impressions of your teeth. Invisalign labs will use this data to create a digital 3-D image of your bite, digitally moving your teeth and creating a series of removable aligners. When your aligners arrive your treatment plan typically proceeds as follows:
- Wear each set of trays for about two weeks
- Remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss
- Mild pressure gradually and systematically moves your teeth
- Visit us every 6-8 weeks to pick up your next 3 to 4 sets of trays
- Total treatment time that averages between 6-15 months
The Clear Choice
Many people choose to correct their smile to boost their confidence, their outlook, and their life. One of the biggest deterrents in correcting teeth are the appliances people feel they must wear to achieve that smile. With Invisalign, achieving the smile you always dreamed of doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process. In fact, it barely has to impact your day-to-day life at all.
What Happens After the Treatment?
After completing any orthodontic treatment, our in-house expert will create a retainer to prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back towards their initial position. But don’t worry – your retainer will be just as clear as your Invisalign braces are!
At Advanced Dental Arts we take pride in having one of the top Manhattan orthodontists as part of our team.
