Why Invisalign instead of braces?
Much like braces, Invisalign can fix the following orthodontic issues:
- Gapped teeth
- Open bite
- Overly-crowded teeth
- Cross bite
Also, it is covered by most insurance plans. Your plan, along with the treatment process, is discussed during the initial consultation. Furthermore, the clear aligner system requires NO wires or brackets, giving patients more comfort. Here at Dr. Jacquie Smiles, Dr. Jacquie uses a digital scanner to create 3D images of your teeth. With this technology, she can map out a precise treatment plan with a set of aligners that are specifically meant for the patient. Another advantage is the fact that it can be removed for eating and to brush your teeth. And the best part, the aligners are virtually INVISIBLE! So why not?
Today, we are more health-conscious than ever before, however what’s not known by many is that orthodontic issues can lead to health problems. Straight teeth can alleviate issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections, and can also prevent even more health issues like heart disease or even a stroke.
With Invisalign comes responsibility. To ensure the best orthodontic treatment possible in NYC, the patient MUST: wear the aligners 20-22 hours per day, a new set of aligners must be switch every week (as you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place), and lastly, the aligners must be properly cleaned every day. Not performing these important tasks will result in treatment being unsuccessful and/or longer.
Invisalign is an effective and appropriate option for many patients in NYC who are looking to improve their appearance and their overall oral health.
