Invisalign Q & A

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional braces that uses clear aligners to gently straighten your teeth. The clear aligners are made from a patented thermoplastic called SmartTrack™ that provides a gentle, constant force on your teeth and moves your teeth faster than other clear aligning systems. 

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

The dental experts at Emergency Dentist NYC are Invisalign providers who can determine during a consultation if you’re a good candidate for the teeth-straightening system. Invisalign can improve many common smile flaws that affect both teens and adults, including:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • General misalignment

The innovative system can improve simple and complex misalignment issues. If you’re unhappy with your smile, contact Emergency Dentist NYC and schedule your Invisalign consultation today.

What happens during Invisalign treatment?

Before you begin your Invisalign treatment, the team at Emergency Dentist NYC first takes a digital image of your mouth using the Invisalign computer software program. The digital imaging is used to create your custom Invisalign treatment plan, which includes the step-by-step transformation of your smile. 

Your treatment plan is then used to create your customized clear aligners. Your dentist at Emergency Dentist NYC provides specific instructions on how frequently you need to change your aligners to get the best results, usually every 1-2 weeks. You should plan on wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours a day.

Unlike traditional braces, you can remove your Invisalign clear aligners to eat, as well as brush and floss your teeth. This means no food restrictions and better overall oral hygiene. 

Invisalign also gets you a straighter smile a lot faster than traditional braces. Though treatment times vary, on average, patients at Emergency Dentist NYC only need to wear their Invisalign aligners for 8-16 months. Traditional braces can take as long as three years. 

What happens after Invisalign treatment?

After your Invisalign treatment, the team at Emergency Dentist NYC provides a custom-made retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting out of position. Initially, you may need to wear your retainer most of the day, as you do with your Invisalign clear aligners. Once your teeth have settled into their new position, you may then only need to wear your retainer at night.
