Many of our patients at Smile Align Orthodontics feel that one of the best advantages to using clear braces in Brooklyn, is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth because it’s virtually undetectable. Invisalign Orthodontics actually straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances. Our orthodontist educates our patients so you understand the process of using Invsalign clear braces, which helps you to decide if this is the best way to go to achieve the improved, straight smile you want. Along with its 3-D computer software, our expert uses the Invisalign treatment plan to make personalized sets of plastic aligners that move teeth in small increments. Each aligner is carefully adjusted and designed to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Only taken out to eat, floss, and brush, each aligner is worn for about two weeks.
To begin the process of your clear braces in Brooklyn, we start by taking dental impressions, photographs, and x-rays of your teeth and sending them to Align Technology. The impressions are put through a CT scan from which a computer creates a three-dimensional model. Custom software, specifically designed for Invisalign clear braces, simulates the movement of your teeth in numerous stages. Your simulation is evaluated online and once approved, a plastic resin aligner is made for each stage of treatment and shipped to Smile Align Orthodontics. The normal treatment period is about a year, depending on the complexity of the treatment and, once completed, retainers made of a similar plastic material are usually required to be worn, at least at night.
Computerized treatment planning is an important part of the clear braces in Brooklyn procedure, as this allows you to review your projected smile design, learn how long the treatment is likely to take, compare different plans, and make a more educated decision as to whether Invisalign is right for you or your child. The smile you always dreamed of, the smile that will put your best face forward with a new-found confidence, is available at Smile Align Orthodontics.
