At Smiles on Broadway Dental Care, we want you to enjoy a dazzling smile and enduring oral health. For this reason, we proudly offer Invisalign®. Using clear, custom-made trays, our dentists can gently shift your teeth into proper alignment over time, thus improving your appearance, enhancing oral function, and reducing your risk of a number of dental issues.
When you choose Invisalign® at our Franklin Square, NY, area practice, you will receive comfortable, removable aligners that are convenient and much more discreet than traditional braces. Treatment is affordable, and most importantly, Invisalign® is highly effective. Our team will carefully monitor your progress to ensure optimal results.
Candidates for Invisalign®
Invisalign® treatment can address a variety of orthodontic issues. You may be a candidate if you suffer from:
- An overbite
- An open bite
- A crossbite
- An underbite
- Gapped teeth
- Overlapping teeth
- Crowded teeth
Invisalign® can correct minor to moderate misalignment. If you have severe malocclusion, our team may refer you to an orthodontist for traditional braces. To determine your candidacy, one of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination. Often, he or she will take x-rays to better evaluate your bite.
Using this proven method, our team can comfortably and discreetly straighten your teeth in rapid time, helping to deliver the beautiful, rejuvenated smile you have been dreaming of.
How Invisalign® Works
If your dentist determines that you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, he or she will take digital images of your teeth. The Invisalign® lab can then use these images to create a series of clear trays that will fit over and gently straighten your teeth.
It is important to follow your dentist’s exact instructions during treatment. In most cases, you will wear each aligner for about two weeks, removing it only to eat and brush and floss your teeth. Treatment time varies, but in most cases it will take about a year. During this time, you will visit the office about every six weeks to pick up your new set of aligners and allow the dentist to check your progress.
Benefits of Invisalign®
Invisalign® is an increasingly popular treatment option for a number of reasons:
- Aligners are incredibly inconspicuous. Made of clear, stain-resistant, BPA-free plastic, they are virtually undetectable, even from a close distance.
- Invisalign® trays are comfortable. They will fit securely around your teeth and exert less force than standard braces.
- Unlike metal brackets, Invisalign® aligners will not chafe your lips or the insides of your cheeks.
- Invisalign® is convenient. Though you will still need to schedule regular visits to our office, you will have far fewer appointments than you would for traditional braces.
- Aligners are removable and therefore highly convenient. As a result, you can practice thorough dental hygiene while still enjoying a full range of foods.
- Invisalign® lowers risk for dental conditions such as decay, erosion, and TMJ disorder.
Above all, Invisalign® works. Once treatment is complete, your smile will appear bigger, brighter, and straighter. Often, an enhanced smile will give you a more youthful appearance, as it will accentuate other facial features for beautiful cosmetic results.
