If you are unhappy with the alignment of your teeth, have spaces between your teeth, or have bite issues, orthodontic treatment is a great solution. The highly trained staff here at Oyster Bay Family Dentists has the ability to straighten your teeth quickly and effectively with Invisalign. Invisalign works just as effectively as traditional braces but you won't have to deal with the hassle of metal wires and brackets.
To have Invisalign placed on your teeth, you will first need to have
impressions taken of your teeth. These images are sent to a computer
screen, where they are analyzed and a 3D mock-up is created for the
first set of plastic aligners. These are sent to the lab, and the
patient returns in about two weeks to obtain their first set of
aligners. Your doctor will ask patients to return to his office every
2-3 weeks for their next set of aligners, helping to encourage movement
of their teeth to the desired location.
Compared to bracket traditional, Invisalign is a much safer option.
Patients who use Invisalign often avoid damage to the gums and
supporting tissues. Patients will also avoid bacteria build up that
would result through traditional braces. Patients are also able to get
regular dental checkups while using Invisalign. Traditional braces
prevent X-rays and regular cleanings while the removable aligners used
through Invisalign can be removed allowing for dentist access.
