Invisalign - A Treatment That Is Truly Out of Sight! By Dr. Degel on August 08, 2010

Every year, thousands of people undergo orthodontic treatment with traditional metal braces. Ask any one of these people what they think of this treatment, and most of the positive comments will probably involve the results they will achieve, not the treatment, itself. While highly effective, metal braces are also cumbersome and conspicuous. Because of this, many people who could benefit from orthodontic treatment avoid getting the dental work they need.


It is with these people in mind that Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel offer Invisalign® invisible braces at their cosmetic dentistry practice serving all of New York City. Invisalign® combines the best of two worlds: the oral health benefits of restorative dentistry and the aesthetics of cosmetic dentistry.


The oral health benefits of Invisalign® go beyond the improved bite and beautifully aligned teeth that result from treatment. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are removable; as long as they are worn for at least 22 hours a day, they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing without affecting treatment. There is no risk of food getting stuck in metal brackets or of one’s oral hygiene suffering from lack of access to certain areas of the mouth.


The aesthetic advantages offered by Invisalign® are – literally – clear. The plastic aligners are virtually impossible to detect, allowing patients to laugh, speak, and smile with the confidence of knowing that their smile will look great, even during treatment. And after treatment with Invisalign® is complete, patients can benefit from further cosmetic dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and other smile makeover options.
