If you are considering Invisalign braces, you have come to the right place. Invisalign is popular with many patients due to their low visibility and ease of use. Some patients do not want the hassle of wearing traditional metal braces. Traditional braces take about the same amount of time as Invisalign to straighten teeth, except they use hardware, archwires and brackets to pull the teeth slowly into alignment over time.
Traditional braces are just as good as invisible braces, however, they are more visible. Our orthodontic specialist in Fishkill NY, Dr. Richard G. Rosenbloom, is experienced in placing both types of orthodontic appliances for patients in both Mid Hudson Valley and Dutchess County.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth, without metal wires or brackets. When you come in for your appointment, our orthodontic specialist in Fishkill NY first makes a unique custom made tray precisely fitted to your teeth. We then fabricate a series of aligners using state of the art 3-D computer generated graphics.
This allows us to calibrate each piece. At each stage, you’ll receive a different aligner that will move your teeth slowly to its desired position over time. Each set is worn for one-three weeks and then replaced with the next in the series, until a final level of straightening is achieved. Most patients are very happy with their teeth after Invisalign braces. The great thing about wearing Invisalign is that they can be removed for eating, brushing or flossing.
If it is determined that Invisalign is right for you, our orthodontic specialist in Fishkill NY will immediately begin work on your new aligners. The process is quick and easy and uses no screws to tighten, such as traditional braces. Invisalign braces can take up to a year to align depending on the severity of the misalignment. Treatment time varies depending on the patient and their needs. All patients will need to wear a retainer after Invisalign, just like those who have received traditional orthodontics.
