Do you regret the fact that you never had your teeth straightened as a teen? You are not alone – today, many adults feel this way. The good news is that today adults can have their teeth straightened using Invisalign invisible braces. This is a tooth straightening system that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth, without the use of any metal wires or brackets. If you are interested in learning more about NYC Invisalign, simply come visit us at our dental practice, Cosmopolitan Dental.
At our dental practice we are very happy to have two expert and highly trained dentists on staff. Our dentists are Dr. Garo Nazarian and Dr. Doyoon Kim. Invisalign is a very popular choice for our patients because it means they can have their teeth straightened in a very discreet manner. The clear Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible to others while they are being worn. This means that our patients can attend work and social gatherings without anyone needing to know that they are receiving orthodontic treatment. Each patient will receive a set of aligners which are made to specifically fit their individual smile situation. The number of aligners each patient receives will vary, and can range anywhere from about 15 to 45 aligners. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will slowly move our patients’ teeth into place so that the next aligner in the series can be born. Treatment with NYC Invisalign takes about the same amount of treatment time as does treatment with traditional metal braces.
The Invisalign aligners are created using CAD/CAM technology. Your treatment will begin when our dentist takes dental impressions, x-rays, and photographs of your teeth, and then sends them off to Align Technology. Align Technology will actually fabricate your aligners. Patients also enjoy the fact that they can eat anything they want during treatment with Invisalign. This is because the aligners are removed for eating, as well as so that the patient can brush and floss daily. This means that at the end of treatment your teeth will be as white and as healthy as they were at the beginning of treatment.
