Are misaligned teeth causing you to feel dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile? We offer Invisalign® clear orthodontics at our Brooklyn office, helping adult patients achieve straighter smiles without the hassle of traditional metal braces. These clear plastic aligners are removable, so you can continue to enjoy all the sticky, chewy foods you love. Meanwhile, because the aligners are clear, those around you probably will not notice that you are wearing them. Just because you are straightening your teeth does not mean you have to suffer with conspicuous, hard-to-clean hardware. Contact us today to learn more about Invisalign® costs and benefits.

How it Works
The Invisalign® system works by applying steady, gentle pressure to your teeth using a series of custom-made clear aligner trays. During your first appointment, we will closely examine the state of your teeth and gums. If you are experiencing gum disease, tooth decay, or other health issues, they must be addressed before Invisalign® is prescribed. Next, we will take a digital scan of your teeth. This will allow us to carefully plan your treatment, and to provide you with a digital preview of how you can expect your smile to look a the end of treatment. The scanned images will be transmitted to the Invisalign® lab, where your custom mouthpieces will be created. Each appliance fits slightly differently and will be worn for approximately two weeks before you begin wearing the next one. Each day, you should wear your aligner at least 22 hours. You can remove the aligner during meals, and when brushing and flossing.
Invisalign® can be an excellent solution for adult patients suffering from overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, wide spaces between teeth, and other conditions. In fact, Invisalign® can correct many of the same conditions traditionally treated with metal braces. The surest way to find out if Invisalign® is right for you is to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, you can also learn more about the cost you will pay for your treatment.
There are a wealth of benefits in choosing Invisalign®. The mouthpieces contain no uncomfortable metal that can irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. There are no wires to tighten, and the treatment requires fewer total visits to the dentist. Since the mouthpieces can be removed, you can brush and floss your teeth normally, and continue eating any foods you choose. The length of treatment is comparable to what is required with traditional braces. In addition, we offer complementary teeth whitening as part of your Invisalign® treatment, so you can enjoy a smile that is straighter and brighter.
