Invisalign offers an exciting, state-of-the-art alternative to traditional braces for giving you straighter teeth. At Tiba Dental, we’re pleased to give you all of the benefits associated with metal braces, but without the typical drawbacks that are associated with them. Our Brooklyn Invisalign dentist understands that you want teeth that are more attractive and healthier, but there is no reason that you have to sacrifice your appearance and comfort as part of the process.
If Invisalign isn’t the usual framework of metal brackets and wires, then what is it exactly? It’s a system of clear aligners, each one made out of plastic. As a result, they are virtually undetectable when you wear them, meaning you won’t have to feel self-conscious or deal with nosy questions or rude comments. Our Brooklyn Invisalign dentist creates your aligners using advanced 3-D computer technology. It works in stages, moving your teeth steadily until they reach a more ideal position. Your aligners will be calibrated to fit you with precision. In total, you will wear from 12 to 48 aligners, the exact amount depending on factors such as how misaligned your teeth are at the beginning of your treatment. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, after which it will be discarded in favor of the next in the series.
Your aligners are removable. You keep them in all day and night, though, even while you sleep. They only come out for brushing, flossing, and eating. That means you won’t have to give up any of your favorite foods due to concerns about anything being caught in your braces, since your clear aligner will never be in your mouth while you eat. Get started by finding out if you are a good candidate for Invisalign. With a simple consultation and examination, it will be easy to determine if you’re qualified. Don’t forget that aside from the cosmetic benefits of straighter teeth, it’s also true that your teeth will be easier to floss between, making you less prone to plaque and its effects: tooth decay and gum disease.
