The Best Alternative to Metal Braces

Of course, all our Manhattan dental patients have heard about Invisalign. What they might not have heard, however, is that treatment time can be as little as six months! And that, although they may have had straight teeth for many years, as we age our teeth may become misaligned? How’s that?

Aging Affects Bone Density

As we age, our bones become less dense and can shrink. This is particularly true of the jawbone, and the reason why previously straight teeth may suddenly overlap one another, requiring a treatment such as Invisalign.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear trays made to fit your teeth. You wear them “over” your teeth and remove them to eat, brush and floss. Every two weeks you’ll throw away your current tray and replace with the next one in the series. Every 6-8 weeks we’ll see you in our NYC dentist office to check your progress.

Who Can Wear Invisalign?

Although Invisalign was originally created for adults who wanted to avoid the “tin grin” look of metal dental appliances, it’s popular with both kids and adults.
