Whether you’re an adult who never had braces as a child or are a parent looking for a solution to correct misalignments or spacing issues, Invisalign® might be an option. It’s a discrete way to fix these problems and might be more affordable than you think.
At New Leaf Dental, we encourage our patients to understand the benefits of choosing Invisalign over standard braces.
Invisalign consists of clear aligners that pull on your teeth to reposition them. They work in the same manner as braces. However, nobody will know you’re wearing Invisalign because they’re clear. They’re also removable.
When compared to braces, this option is around the same price. This alternative to braces takes less time to complete. Generally, Invisalign treatment near you takes about a year total. In the less severe cases, your total correction may be completed in a few months. On the other hand, some people require them for longer than a year. A majority of people need traditional braces for at least 18 months.
You may eat whatever you like with Invisalign in Brooklyn, NY. You can remove them to chew gum or eat hard items. Additionally, you may remove the aligners to brush your teeth twice a day and floss. With standard braces, your dental hygiene routine is a bit different because the braces get in the way.
Instead of having to visit our dentist to get your braces tightened, Invisalign is a lot simpler. Our dentist determines the next size aligner you need. Total, you’ll need at least 20 to 30 aligners. However, some of our patients require less, and others require more. The process is customized exclusively to your needs.
Your initial consultation consists of our dentist asking you to complete a dental and medical history assessment. Our dentist will also take images of your teeth at your Invisalign consultation. Part of the consultation also consists of our dentist taking x-rays. Based on all the information gathered, our dentist creates a plan for Invisalign that’s specifically for your needs. The aligners gradually change the position of your teeth until they’re properly aligned and spaced.
During any step of the process, our dentist encourages you to ask questions. We want you to feel confident in the procedure and our contributions to it. Plus, we want you to feel comfortable taking care of your aligners at home.
