Is Invisalign Just as Good as Braces?

Orthodontics is sometimes necessary to achieve straight teeth and a winning smile. Because of this, we offer Invisalign in Midtown, NYC.

We have found that Invisalign works beautifully for most orthodontic issues, including:

  • Crooked, overlapping, and twisted teeth
  • Unusual spacing or gaps between teeth
  • Midline discrepancies
  • Bite alignment issues, including overbite

We believe that Invisalign is just as suitable as traditional braces when correcting common orthodontic issues. In fact, there are some advantages with Invisalign that you’ll not find with conventional braces.

Advantages of Invisalign in Midtown, NYC

Traditional braces depend on brackets and guidewires to straighten teeth. As a result, the system can feel weighty in the mouth and even snag sensitive cheeks. In comparison, Invisalign is made of smooth plastic.

Another advantage to Invisalign that you’ll not find with traditional braces is discretion. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible.

And unlike traditional braces, you can remove your aligners to eat and clean your teeth.

Is Invisalign Right for You?

Before your dentist moves forward with Invisalign, we ensure that it will give you the best result. Your dentist will talk to you about what to expect following treatment.

Should you decide to move forward with Invisalign, we will take impressions of your teeth and send our results to the Invisalign lab. The lab creates your aligners, and you wear each set for approximately two weeks before moving on to the next.

As the months go by, your teeth begin to line up. When you have finished your aligners, treatment is complete. Your dentist will then provide a clear retainer to keep your teeth in their new straight positions.
