INVISALIGN DENTIST - UPPER EAST SIDE

Invisalign is a series of clear, virtually invisible trays that are worn over people’s teeth to effect tooth movement and children and adults, creating an amazing and healthy smile. We at New York Family Dental Arts in Upper East Side use a 3-D scanner to create an image of your existing teeth, after which a computer program develops an individual tooth movement treatment plan, as well as custom-made clear trays. Firstly, let us answer some of your questions below so that we understand more about INVISALIGN.

WHAT EXACTLY IS INVISALIGN?

INVISALIGN ® is a unique computer technology aided teeth straightening system that allows your teeth to be straightened without the use of any wires or brackets. INVISALIGN® is also known as ‘clear braces’ and it uses a series of clear removable appliances these are called aligners. These aligners are manufactured by INVISALIGN® according to exact specifications for each individual patient.

When you look at someone who is wearing INVISALIGN® it is very hard to detect unless you’re up close. Therefore, from a distance many people will not know that you’re actually wearing INVISALIGN®. Many of our patients at our office have reported increased confidence in their ability to smile both during and after the INVISALIGN® treatment.

HOW EXACTLY DOES INVISALIGN WORK?

Once they have informed you that you are a candidate for INVISALIGN®, they will create a custom tailored plan that will be made precisely according to the unique shape of your mouth. At this point the doctors will be able to tell you the approximate length of your treatment.







HERE IS HOW YOUR INVISALIGN TREATMENT WILL WORK?

1) Your custom aligners will be made just for you having been designed by CAD. The aligners must be worn for the majority of the day, only removing them to eat and drink or to floss and brush.


2) Roughly every 2 weeks you will be sent a new set of aligners, each time bringing you closer to having your teeth perfectly straight.


3) The doctor will ask you to come in for occasional check-ups in order to ensure that the aligners are working and that your smile is progressing. Depending on the severity of the case the number of aligners will be between 12 and 48.


4) Once you have finished with your last aligner the process is finished and you are on your way to having the perfect smile you have always wanted. Most patients will be asked to wear a retainer at night – this will keep your teeth in their new position.

Small, tooth-colored attachments are added strategically to individual teeth. The trays engage these teeth and effect movement. The number of trays necessary to complete the treatment varies among different people and is determined by the amount of movement needed to create a beautiful and healthy smile. Invisalign treatment typically last from 5 to 18 months, depending on the severity of misalignment of the teeth.
