When you learn that you need braces, your first thought is probably going to be “Oh no!” Traditional metal braces are viewed as painful and uncomfortable because the wires irritate the gums and soft tissues of the mouth. They can also be disruptive for adults who want to maintain a professional appearance.
Luckily, there is an alternative. At New Leaf Dental in Brooklyn, NY, we offer high-quality Invisalign aligners to adult patients who want to avoid metal braces altogether while still receiving orthodontic treatment.
Our Invisalign treatment in Brooklyn, NY, allows you to straighten your teeth through the use of clear plastic aligners. No one will be able to tell you are undergoing orthodontic care, and the aligners can be removed as needed to clean your teeth in the morning and at night. Plus, Invisalign has no uncomfortable wires, so you don’t have to worry about an irritated mouth.
Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to straighten the teeth. Our dentist first examines your mouth with a 3D imaging system and then creates the first aligner. You will wear it for two weeks, at which point our office creates another to continue the straightening process. The aligners will apply consistent pressure to your smile, gradually causing the teeth to shift and move into position.
The cost of Invisalign varies considerably depending on the condition of your teeth and whether or not insurance will cover part of the cost. In general, Invisalign can cost between $3,000 and $5,000.
To begin treatment, you will visit our office at New Leaf Dental for a consultation and exam. We will create a mold of your smile and use our 3D imaging system to determine the right fit for your first aligner. Once it is made, we will place it over your teeth to begin treatment.
It is normal to experience some slight discomfort at first, but it will fade after a few days.
