3 Reasons You Want to Try Invisalign This Fall

3 Reasons You Want to Try Invisalign This Fall

It used to be that if you wanted to straighten your teeth, traditional braces were your only option. However, today there’s a much more comfortable and discreet option for straightening teeth. It’s called Invisalign®, and this advanced treatment uses clear, removable, plastic aligners to straighten teeth. 

At Brooklyn City Dental in Brooklyn, New York, our team is experts in giving patients great smiles with Invisalign aligners. In this blog, they explain what the Invisalign system is and give three great reasons to try it.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that is more comfortable and discreet than traditional metal braces. The aligners are clear and fit over your teeth. To get your aligners, your provider takes a 3-D scan of your teeth. Then your aligners are made to the exact specifications of your scan. 

A number of aligner sets are made, each slightly adjusted to shift your teeth into the correct positions. Every two weeks or so, you replace one set with another, and when you take out your final set, you have the smile you desire.  

3 reasons you should try Invisalign this fall

Whether you have crowded teeth or large gaps, or whether you have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, Invisalign can improve the look and function of your teeth. Here are three big reasons to try Invisalign:


One of the best features of Invisalign aligners is that they’re discreet. The custom-made aligners are made of flexible, thin, clear plastic, so they’re not as noticeable as traditional braces. If the thought of smiling with traditional braces makes you cringe, Invisalign could be the answer you’ve been looking for. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth and smile without feeling self-conscious.


Traditional braces are bonded to your teeth, so they can’t be removed during the years of your treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable, so you can take them out while you eat and clean your teeth. As a result, you won’t need to make any dietary changes while you’re undergoing treatment. Furthermore, you’ll have an easier time brushing and flossing.

Fewer visits

Your time is important and limited, and you probably don’t want to spend it making numerous trips to the orthodontist or dentist. With the Invisalign system, you get a series of aligners. And when it’s time to put in the next set in the series — which is usually every two weeks or so — you just take out the old set and put in the new one.

You don’t have to come in regularly to have them adjusted like you would need to with traditional braces. You just need to come in periodically so your provider can see how your progress is going. 

Invisalign can get you the great smile you've always wanted without the hassle of traditional braces. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Brookly City Dental today.
