What is it?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. Invisalign is the best clear alternative to braces!
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in orthodontic treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal braces to cause mouth abrasions during orthodontic treatment. And no metal braces and wires usually means you spend less time getting in orthodontist’s chair. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners (invisalign trays) for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss – 22 hours a day. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit Braces and Smiles about once every 6 to 8 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total Invisalign treatment time typically lasts nine to 18 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.
Advantages of Invisalign ®
They are virtually invisible, and no one knows you’re wearing them except you.
Your teeth are easier to clean than with traditional braces because they are removable.
Invisalign aligners don’t irritate your cheeks or gums as much as traditional adult braces.
You’ll get a chance to see a computer simulation showing how your teeth will move during treatment, and see the projected final outcome of your new smile.
You’ll have fewer and less frequent appointments than patients wearing traditional braces.
If you are a patient with severe orthodontic problems wanting complete correction Invisalign ® may not be the best option for you. Other adult braces and adult orthodontic options may be better for you to obtain the perfect smile. For Patients in the Queens NY area, please stop by Braces and Smiles for your first free exam today and see if Invisalign ® is the clear choice for you.
Frequently Asked Questions about Invisalign
How much does Invisalign cost?
At Braces and Smiles, we make sure Invisalign is affordable to each and every patient. Please see Invisalign Cost page. We want to help our patients choose the treatment that is right for them.
What do I need to get started?
Our initial exam is offered at no charge and is necessary to determine your treatment plan. If treatment is indicated, initial iTero 3D scan and records can be completed.
When do I get my aligners?
After iTero 3D scan of your teeth is taken, the file is sent to Invisalign. Working with Invisalign simulation, Dr. Lee determines how your finished result will be accomplished. Once the treatment plan is finalized, the aligners are fabricated and shipped. The normal time is 4-6 weeks.
How often will I need to be seen for appointments?
Each aligner tray set is worn for approximately two weeks. Dr. Lee will give you 3 to 4 sets at a time, so generally appointments are every 6 to 8 weeks.
