Invisalign® is a new alternative to traditional wire braces that is virtually undetectable to other people. Invisalign straightens your teeth, not with brackets or wires, but with a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. Many patients find Invisalign braces in Monroe, NY more convenient, as they are removable and not permanent fixtures. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Jacquie Smiles in her Monroe dental clinic can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Invisalign uses the latest 3-D computer technology to create your customized aligners. After you and your orthodontist determine what you’d like to correct, your orthodontist will develop precise treatment instructions. Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate those instructions into a sequence of finely calibrated aligners – as few as 12 or as many as 48.
You’ll wear each Invisalign aligner for about two weeks and only take it out for eating, brushing, and flossing. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will move – gradually – week by week, until they move into the final alignment your orthodontist prescribed. Then, you’ll be smiling like you’ve never smiled before.
What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign braces are practically clear. No one may even notice that you’re wearing these virtually invisible “braces,” making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others.
Invisalign clear braces are removable. Unlike the traditional braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment by simply removing the aligners. And you can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene.
Unlike braces, there are no metal brackets or wires with the Invisalign system that could cause irritation to your mouth. Plus since your office visits during treatment don’t involve metal or wire adjustments, you’ll likely spend less time in the doctor’s chair.
What are aligners made of, and what do they look like?
Invisalign aligners are made of a thermoplastic material uniquely developed to straighten your teeth and look similar to tooth-whitening trays. Invisalign aligners are custom-made for you and only you to move your teeth in the sequence determined by your doctor.
Has the FDA cleared Invisalign?
Invisalign are classified as Class II medical devices by the FDA, and Align Technology, Inc.has held the necessary 510K clearance from the FDA since 1998 to be able to sell and market the Invisalign system.
