Invisalign uses custom-molded mouthpieces to gradually straighten your teeth and jaw. It’s a discreet and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile without the hassle of wires, brackets, or rubber bands.
Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. They’re free of all chemicals, including latex and BPS, making them safe for pregnant women and people with allergies.
At Brooklyn City Dental, the team uses Invisalign to correct both mild and moderate alignment problems, including:
You might also benefit from Invisalign if you have crooked teeth or teeth that overlap one another.
At Brooklyn City Dental, Invisalign treatment begins with a review of your dental health history and a comprehensive oral exam. The team also takes a series of oral X-rays to assess the current position of your teeth and jaw.
If the team determines that you’ll benefit from Invisalign, they use an intraoral scanner to take digital impressions of your mouth. They upload your impressions to a computer-aided design program and customize a treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
After finalizing the plan, the team sends your scans to a laboratory that creates your first set of Invisalign aligners. Once they’re ready, you return to Brooklyn City Dental.
The team adjusts them as necessary and provides you with a list of instructions. Every few weeks, you return to the office and change into a new set of aligners.
Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign typically takes 6-12 months*, but it may take longer depending on the issues treated. To help speed up the process, wear your aligners for 20-22 hours each day, only taking them out to eat or brush your teeth.
Invisalign aligners are like your teeth in that they collect food particles, plaque, and harmful bacteria. Therefore, it’s important to clean and care for them daily.
The team at Brooklyn City Dental recommends rinsing them with tap water several times a day and gently brushing them with a soft-bristle toothbrush at night. If build-up becomes extensive, ask them about the Invisalign Cleaning System.
