When you have crooked teeth, cross bite, over bite and under bite you can correct the problem by visiting Smile Design Center of Westchester. We will either give you the traditional braces or you may qualify for invisible braces. Invisalign is the brand of invisible braces that Dr. Sapozhnik uses to discreetly correct your smile. It is clear, removable, and comfortable.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. A series of Invisalign braces will gradually straighten your teeth till you have a beautiful smile.
- A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
- As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position the dentist has prescribed.
- You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
- Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This, of course, will vary from case to case.
Why Wear Braces?
Crooked teeth affect the quality of your smile. They are also difficult to clean and floss so they increase the risk of tooth decay. They also affect the bite and that can eventually result in bite problems and TMJ disorders. When you straighten your teeth, you beautify your smile and improve dental health. Invisible braces are the solution that you need since they have no dietary restrictions, they are easy to remove for cleaning, they are discreet and they do not stain tooth enamel like permanently attached brackets.
