We accept Invisalign transfer cases and look forward to exceeding your expectations.
Your Invisalign orthodontics treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable clear aligners that you change every two weeks for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only. As your best rated NYC Invisalign practitioner replaces each aligner, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final beautiful position.
WHAT IS INVISALIGN®? Invisalign® is the latest technology to straight misaligned teeth in an almost invisible way, without wires or metal braces, with no self-consciousness, no speech impediments, far greater comfort and it is available for patients from 12 years old.
WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS CAN INVISALIGN® FIX? The usual problems Invisalign® can fix include:
- Crowded and severely crowded teeth,
- Widely spaced teeth,
- Deep bite,
- Open bite, and
- Midline shift.
HOW DO INVISALIGN® CLEAR ALIGNERS WORK? The Invisalign® system works on the same principles of teeth straightening with metal braces. However, they are much more comfortable because there are no wires or metal pieces, they have a clear design and each aligner is generated following a computer progression. Your Invisalign® teeth straightening will progress as follows:
- First, we will take your bite impressions,
- Then, these impressions are laser scanned to generate 3D images in a computer,
- Finally, a series of clear “aligners” are created, each progressively moving your teeth towards the desired position.
DO YOU NEED A SECOND OPINION? Have you visited another NYC dentist or orthodontist and he or she has told you that Invisalign® was not suitable for you? Don’t worry, come to see us and take advantage of our free consultation and we happily reevaluate your case. Remember that Invisalign® works for almost everybody, even in complex cases, but only well trained and very skilled providers can help you.
IS INVISALIGN® AVAILABLE FOR TEENAGERS? Yes, there is a specific product called Invisalign Teen. Invisalign® Teen combines all of the advantages of the proven Invisalign® system with unique features designed to fit a teen’s lifestyle.
