Invisalign® is the Subtle Teeth-Straightening Solution for You
What Makes Invisalign Different?
Changing More than Just Crooked Teeth
Invisalign can transform how your smile looks by giving you beautiful, straight teeth. This has numerous benefits beyond cosmetic improvements, though. Crooked teeth increase the risk that bacterial plaque from food debris becomes trapped between the crevices of teeth. This plaque, if it hardens into tartar, can cause cavities and lead to the development of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease.
Crooked teeth can also cause bite issues, teeth grinding and clenching, and temporomandibular joint(TMJ) and jaw pain. Straight teeth make it possible for you to properly brush and floss your teeth. You’ll discover that your oral hygiene routine will become easier and have better results. Similarly, aligned teeth will improve how your teeth fit together, helping to resolve functional problems associated with crooked teeth and a bad bite (malocclusion). Overall, Invisalign treatment from our experienced dentist in Manhasset, NY will improve the health and function of your smile, in addition to providing natural smile esthetics and a boost to your confidence!
We Customize Your Invisalign Treatment to You
Our Manhasset, NY dentist is trained and certified in Invisalign and will monitor your treatment to ensure you receive the beautiful and functional results you want. Our office knows the cost of your orthodontics treatment may be the first concern you have which is why we accept major insurance companies and we even offer third-party financing solutions for your convenience.
Your treatment begins with a consultation with our Invisalign dentist to verify your candidacy and current oral health. Virtually all patients are candidates for Invisalign if complex bite problems aren’t present. Next, we’ll take impressions of your teeth that will be used to create your series of custom clear aligners. You’ll need to wear these clear aligners for 20-22 hours each day, though you can remove them to eat and drink as well as to brush and floss your teeth. As you progress through the series of aligners, you’ll notice your teeth slowly moving into place, soon to reveal your beautiful, straight smile. Your attractive new smile will help you feel more confident and live healthier long term thanks to these invisible aligners!
