Get Invisalign NYC
Here at Cosmetic Dentist NYC, one of our many services is the Invisalign treatment. Invisalign is the alternative to traditional metal braces. This is especially true for the patient that has mild to moderate crowding. They are bright and hard to see because they are made of polyurethane plastic. Unlike the traditional braces, Invisalign is entirely removable for things like eating, flossing, and brushing. This allows for better oral hygiene during treatment. They are more comfortable and discreet than the braces are. There are no metal wires or brackets. Here at Cosmetic Dentist, you can see on the computer what you will look like after treatment with Invisalign.
Invisalign NYC Treatment Process
The first thing we do here at Cosmetic Dentist is for the doctor to schedule a consult with you to discuss your goals and look at all your options. Unfortunately, not everyone can wear Invisalign. Those with severe misalignment may have to wear the traditional braces. There are also some cases that are complex that would not be successful using Invisalign. Your doctor will help you decide which option is best. If Invisalign is an option for you, he will explain everything to you. Once you have the aligner, you will see for yourself how comfortable it is. For treatment, you may have several visits. The doctor will determine how much your teeth need to be moved and break it down into steps to achieve this. There may be dozens of levels and at each stage, you are fitted with a different aligner. The first set is worn for about two weeks for a minimum of 20 hours a day. After the two weeks, you will get a second set of aligners, and this will be repeated until your treatment is completed. Each step applies the pressure needed to sure teeth to move them. Each stage is aimed at advancing only sure teeth. Your Orthodontist here at Cosmetic Dentist has already mapped out how much and which teeth are to be moved at each stage. To complete treatment and reach the goal you set with the doctor can take anywhere from six months to two years depending on what your treatment plan is. If Invisalign treatment is going to achieve the goal, it is vital that the patient follow their doctor’s instructions. Since they are completely removable, cleaning them is easy. Merely remove the aligner, brush your teeth as usual, then before putting the aligner back n you can touch and rinse them. For some patients, it is necessary for them to wear a retainer after treatment is completed to keep the teeth aligned.
