To learn more about Invisalign and what it could do for you, contact us today to schedule a consultation to discuss smile alignment with Invisalign clear braces in Mineola, NY.
Invisalign uses a progressive series of clear plastic aligner trays to gently bring the teeth into their new positions. You’ll be fitted for your trays at an initial consultation, and they’ll be designed using digital impressions. Once they are ready, you’ll wear each set for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks before switching them out for the next. After you have gone through your entire series, you should see a perfectly straight set of teeth in the mirror!
Dr. Casañas mainly recommends Invisalign for teen and adult patients who have mild to moderate orthodontic issues. He’ll give you or your child an exam and let you know if this treatment would be the right choice. For more advanced problems, metal braces might be necessary. Fortunately, the vast majority of the people who come to see us are good candidates for Invisalign, and we can use it to fix…
Crowded teeth not only look unattractive, but they also make it more difficult to clean the mouth effectively with brushing and flossing, plus they can throw off the alignment of the bite. Fortunately, Invisalign is an excellent solution to make crowding disappear.
Unwanted spaces can mess with your confidence, make eating feel awkward or uncomfortable, and even lead to speech impediments. These gaps can be closed with Invisalign so that every time you smile, take a bite, or speak your mind, you can do so with complete confidence.
An overbite, underbite, or crossbite can affect someone’s appearance and cause chronic jaw pain due to excess strain placed on the temporomandibular joint (the joint that controls the lower jaw). By properly aligning the bite, Invisalign can improve someone’s appearance and provide long-term relief at the same time.
The primary factor that determines the cost of Invisalign is the number of trays needed to make the necessary adjustments. This can vary greatly from patient to patient depending on the nature of their issues as well as the starting position of the teeth. When you come to see us, we’ll discuss all of the cost information so that you know everything you need to make a confident decision about your care. We can also go over our flexible financing options.
