Consider a new and improved smile this new year! Patients often suffer from misaligned teeth that can take away from a shining smile. A single crooked tooth can stand out amongst your set of teeth and make patients self-conscious about their smirk. For many years, braces were the optimal solution to correct these types of misalignments. However, thick, metal braces may cause functional issues, such as trapped food and gum irritation. Advances in cosmetic dentistry have led to metal-free braces, including Invisalign, which are more comfortable, convenient, and aesthetically-pleasing. These clear braces offer a subtle appearance, unlike their metal counterparts, as well as efficient treatment. Here at Rozenberg Dental NYC. in New York City, we offer Invisalign for patients looking to straighten their smile while bypassing the braces of old!
Invisalign trays are made from smooth plastic to ensure patient comfort. These invisible braces do not scratch or irritate the gums. Additionally, they can be taken out during meals to prevent food becoming trapped and potentially affecting periodontal health. Unlike traditional braces, there are no restrictions on which types of food you can enjoy when undergoing Invisalign treatment. Patients can also remove the aligners before brushing or flossing their teeth for a more effective cleaning.
Invisalign can achieve a balanced smile that fits in with your individual tooth structure. When developing your Invisalign trays, an impression is made of your teeth and x-rays are taken to ensure a custom-fit for your desired results. It is recommended to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day. Every few weeks, you will switch out your Invisalign trays for a tighter fit. Many patients see substantial results within a year of starting their Invisalign treatment.
