Invisalign in Manhattan, NY – A Revolutionary Treatment

invisalign in manhattan nycYou might think that the concept behind Invisalign originated with an orthodontist but in reality, the initial idea for Invisalign came from an adult orthodontics patient named Zia Chishti. After getting a retainer for his orthodontic finishing work, the Stanford business student realized that since clear retainers could also move teeth, braces might not even be necessary. Ultimately, his revolutionary idea developed into the Invisalign system.

Adult and teen patients who want to improve their smiles find Invisalign to be an appealing type of orthodontics because the technology aligns your teeth without the need for unsightly braces. In fact, there are no brackets or wires with Invisalign. Instead, the system uses a series of removable aligners to straighten teeth.

Here’s How Invisalign Works

dr pliakas invisalign gold providerWith the aid of computerized 3D modeling, Invisalign’s removable aligners, which are made from clear plastic, are uniquely shaped to fit securely against your teeth. Impressions are taken of your mouth with orthodontic clay and are then scanned by the computer. The computer analyzes what your perfect smile would look like, and then it determines the number of individual adjustments that you’ll need to reach that end result. Your aligners are based on this projection.

You wear your aligner for at least 22 hours per day, and your teeth gradually move to look like that aligner. You switch to a new aligner every two weeks and each one brings you one step close to achieving your desired smile. Step by step, your teeth are brought into perfect alignment!

Why Patients Choose Invisalign

The most undeniable benefit of Invisalign is that it is highly discreet, which is a huge advantage over braces. This is especially true for adults, who may have professional, personal, or social reasons for wanting to avoid an orthodontic treatment that affects their appearance. However, many teens also prefer Invisalign.

The fact that Invisalign’s aligners can be removed offers an additional advantage:  hygiene. Maintaining good oral hygiene becomes so much easier when you only need to remove your aligner to brush and floss normally. Plus, you’ll be able to eat any type of food you like – unlike with braces, where you have to avoid certain foods that might damage the brackets.

A Commitment to Treatment

You know yourself best, and if you don’t think you can adhere to this schedule, then semi-permanent braces might be a better choice for you. (In this case, lingual braces, which are the most discreet type of braces, can be a good alternative.)

You should also be aware that Invisalign moves the teeth a little more slowly than braces, so treatment can take longer overall. Many people don’t mind treatment taking a little longer, but if you want to achieve your perfect smile as quickly as possible, then braces may be a better option for you.
