Invisalign is a clear, removable alternative to bulky metal braces. This modern orthodontic treatment consists of BPA-free plastic aligners that gently and gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.
These aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth comfortably. They are virtually invisible when worn, making Invisalign a discreet and convenient choice for people seeking orthodontic correction without the visual impact and lifestyle adjustments of traditional metal braces.
Invisalign offers many advantages to traditional metal braces, including:
Clear aligners are completely transparent. Invisalign’s SmartTrack® and Park Dental NYC’s iTero® scanner also ensure that the materials are as thin as possible and mold to the exact shape of your teeth for reduced visibility.
Invisalign aligners consist of smooth, comfortable plastic. These materials minimize the irritation and discomfort of traditional braces, which can cause abrasions or sore spots in the mouth due to wires and brackets.
While braces can take up to three years to straighten teeth, Invisalign can correct many orthodontic concerns in 6-18 months.
You can’t remove braces to brush, floss, or eat your favorite foods, but you can with Invisalign. This flexible treatment even allows you to take off your aligners for special occasions, like weddings or important presentations, providing you the freedom to maintain your treatment discreetly.
Invisalign uses a digital process for enhanced accuracy and comfort. First, Dr. Park and her team use the iTero scanner to take images of your teeth and the inside of your mouth. Next, they upload these images into Invisalign’s software to design your treatment plan. Once your plan is complete, they send it to Invisalign to create clear aligners.
You typically receive a new set of aligners every two weeks or so. Each set targets a specific stage of your treatment, gradually shifting your teeth into their desired positions. You must wear Invisalign for at least 22 hours a day. Remove your aligners to brush and floss, and clean the trays regularly. Take Invisalign out to eat food and drink anything but water.
Invisalign offers a convenient, comfortable solution to achieve a straighter smile. Call Park Dental NYC today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
