If your teeth are in need of straightening, coming in to see our top Manhattan dentist is the smartest move you can make. Invisalign is an excellent alternative to braces. It is a series of aligners that invisibly shift your teeth into place. Because of Invisalign, our patients can now straighten their teeth without others noticing that they are doing so.
Like the Invisalign slogan states, it is “a clear alternative to braces.” Treatment is a series of aligners that get replaced almost every two weeks. Each aligner gradually shifts your teeth into place and is custom made for your own mouth.
When you visit our New York City dentist, he will take an impression of your teeth to create Invisalign aligners that fit in your mouth and are customized to your teeth. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, or for special occasions. The great thing about Invisalign is that it is invisible, so others won’t be able to see that you are wearing your aligners. The edges of your aligners will be smooth, so they will be comfortable to wear and won’t irritate your gums.
On your first visit to our New York dental practice, you will discuss with our top dentist the results that you wish to have with your teeth. If it is decided that Invisalign is right for you, then the dentist will make an impression of your teeth and some pictures will be taken. Next, the impressions of your teeth will be turned into a 3-D, computerized image. The Invisalign dentist will determine the movement of your teeth throughout your Invisalign treatment and you will see a virtual representation of what your teeth look like now and what they will look like during, and after using Invisalign. Finally, your aligners will be created and should be worn at all times, except while eating and drinking. A timeline will have been determined between you and the cosmetic dentist. You will come into our office for occasional check-ups and after using Invisalign, will have a beautiful, straight smile. Dr Stange is a Premier Preferred Provider based on his Invisalign experience level.
