The Advantages of Invisalign®
Old-style metal braces are inconvenient, painful, and unsightly. Invisalign® clear plastic aligners are none of these. During your course of treatment, you will not need to have our dentists perform the painful adjustments associated with metal braces — you simply switch aligners every two weeks and come to our office periodically to check on your progress.
Invisalign® aligners are invisible and comfortable to wear. You can remove them when brushing, eating, or drinking — they do not complicate oral hygiene or your daily routine. In addition, Invisalign® aligners have no metal to irritate your mouth, making them easy to wear around the clock. You’ll forget you’re even wearing them!
Is Invisalign® effective?
Don’t let the convenience of Invisalign® invisible braces deceive you! In many cases, Invisalign® aligners are just as effective as old-fashioned braces in aligning your teeth and jaws. The Invisalign® system can be used to treat a full range of alignment problems, including widely spaced teeth, tooth crowding, underbites, overbites, and even crossbites.
Getting Started with Invisalign®
A consultation begins your course of treatment. At Astoria Dental Group in Queens, convenient to Long Island and all of New York City, Dr. Every-Degel will first determine whether Invisalign® invisible braces are right for you. She will examine the condition of your smile, diagnose your alignment problems, and discuss a course of treatment with you. Then she will take impressions of your teeth and send the impressions to Invisalign® for processing. With the aid of advanced computer imaging, these bite impressions are transformed to a customized series of removable aligners. In a few weeks, your first set of aligners will be waiting for you at our office, and you can begin treatment!
