Our invisible braces in Elmont NY are just as effective an option for orthodontic care as are traditional metal braces. However, with Invisalign, you get benefits that are just not possible with old-fashioned braces.
For many people, the thought of braces brings a lot of negativity. Most of that comes from how they look. Even though metal braces have come a long way, they are still obvious when you open your mouth, making you feel very aware of their presence. It can be easy to think that everyone is staring directly at them, even thought that is probably not the case. Our invisible braces in Elmont NY, which are more accurately described as aligners, are made using advanced 3-D technology, right here in our office. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, and is then discarded for the next in the series. How many are we talking? The range varies greatly depending on your unique circumstances, but the average tends to be between 18 and 30. Your aligners are removable, but you only take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Otherwise, they stay in 24 hours per day, even while you sleep. Because you remove them to eat, though, you will not have to observe any bothersome food restrictions. Eat all your favorites, even sticky, crunchy, and chewy ones. Another advantage you will experience with our invisible braces in Elmont NY is that they are comfortable. Metal braces can dig into your gums, leading to irritation and soreness. Not so with Invisalign. And best of all, no one knows you are wearing them except for you, unless you decide to tell them so.
While Invisalign is not the best option for everyone, it may be perfect for you. To find out, call our office and book an appointment to come in for a consultation.
