Invisalign is a cosmetic dental treatment that straightens misaligned teeth with a series of clear aligners, rather than the brackets and wires associated with traditional braces. The aligners are invisible, removable, comfortable, and effective, but produce dramatic results.
Invisalign treatment helps improve the following that may affect your smile and teeth.
The treatment helps eliminate an overbite if you have one. It’s effective for adults and teenagers who desire straighter teeth, a better bite, and easier chewing.
To determine if Invisalign is the right treatment for you, Dr. Rozenberg examines your teeth and bite. She discusses your desired outcome and takes dental X-rays.
Invisalign is safe and effective for just about everybody. But if you have complex dental issues, you might require another orthodontic treatment.
When you arrive for an Invisalign appointment at Rozenberg Dental NYC, Dr. Rozenberg takes digital scans of your teeth to create custom clear aligners.
When the aligners are ready, she makes sure they fit properly on your teeth. You can begin wearing the first set of aligners 20-22 hours every day. Take them out to eat and brush your teeth, but wear them while you sleep.
Every one to two weeks, you switch to the next set of aligners until you reach the desired results. An average Invisalign treatment lasts about 12-18 months.
After you finish treatment, Dr. Rozenberg might recommend you wear a retainer to prevent teeth from shifting out of their new alignment.
To properly care for Invisalign clear aligners, you can use the Invisalign Cleaning System or brush aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
Rinse them in warm, but not hot, water. Brush your teeth after every meal to help prevent aligner staining. Call Dr. Rozenberg if your aligners become damaged during treatment.
Don’t live with crooked, misaligned teeth or wear bulky braces when you don’t have to, as Invisalign treatment is simple and noninvasive. Schedule an appointment with Rozenberg Dental NYC over the phone or online to find out if Invisalign is right for you.
