Invisalign® dentist in Brooklyn ny
the best ALTERNATIVE TO BRACES
Straighten your teeth with clear aligners that are virtually invisible.
Dr. Shah and Dr. Moses are proud to offer the latest advancement in adult teeth straightening – Invisalign Clear Aligners. With Invisalign, a series of nearly invisible, clear aligners replace traditional wires and brackets for effective teeth straightening that doesn’t interfere with the appearance of your natural smile.
When you straighten your teeth with Invisalign, you do not have to worry about broken wires, getting food caught in the brackets, or avoiding certain foods. The clear aligner trays are created by Invisalign specialists Dr. Shah and Dr. Moses using 3D computer imaging technology. The iTero® IntraOral Scanner provides the template for a precise fit and gentle, comfortable realignment of crooked teeth.
Invisalign braces are ideal for adults who want to straighten their teeth but hesitate to get traditional, unattractive wire braces. Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat, drink, brush, and floss for convenience and good oral hygiene. A new aligner is used every few weeks to gently guide the teeth into alignment. Patients see Dr. Shah or Dr. Moses every six to eight weeks to monitor progress.
Why is Invisalign Better Than Traditional Braces?
- Invisalign is discreet. No one knows you are wearing braces, so your social and business life is not impacted.
- The aligners are removable for eating and drinking, so you do not have to give up the foods you love.
- Unlike metal braces, the aligners do not cut into your gums or lips.
- Oral hygiene is simpler and more effective because you can remove the aligners for brushing and flossing.
- More comfortable than metal braces.
Does Invisalign Hurt?
You may feel mild soreness for a day or two when switching to a new set of aligners, but the aligners are not painful. Metal braces are more painful and tend to irritate the lips and gums. If comfort is important to you, Invisalign is the answer.
How Long Do You Have to Wear Invisalign a Day?
We recommend wearing your aligners for the best results at least 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. However, feel free to remove the aligners for a day or evening for special occasions.
How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?
Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. Dr. Shah or Dr. Moses can estimate how long the correction will take at your initial appointment. For most of our patients, Invisalign treatment takes approximately one year.
Who is a Candidate for Invisalign?
Adults with mild to moderate bite misalignment are candidates for Invisalign therapy. If you have a crossbite, overbite, or underbite that is not severe, Invisalign can gently guide your teeth into proper alignment.
