Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gently and easily straighten teeth. Traditional braces usually require some type of hardware or screws or brackets to tighten. They are visible to others and many patients are put off by this fact. Thanks to Invisalign, patients can now have the braces they need to align their teeth, but invisibly. The entire procedure for adult orthodontics on Staten Island is quick and easy. Our doctor first performs a complete exam to check the oral structure of the mouth as well as the gums to ensure that they’re healthy enough for Invisalign. We then customize the braces by creating a 3-D computer graphic design of the aligners, upon which each custom made set is created. The set is designed to fit each individual patient’s mouth. The first set is given, and subsequent sets are given to the patient every few weeks to fit with the next alignment set in the process.
Invisalign is perfect for adult orthodontics in Staten Island because they’re virtually invisible, hard to see, and can be taken out for brushing, flossing and for special occasions such as pictures. They are worn for around the same amount of time as regular braces, depending on the severity of the malocclusion and the need for alignment. Most people are very happy with the result of their Invisalign braces and find the entire procedure to be quick and painless.
