Many of our patients enjoy having their teeth straightened using Invisalign. This is because Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. If you would like to learn whether or not you are a good candidate for having your teeth straightened with Invisalign in Fishkill and LaGrangeville, NY, come to see us at R & R Orthodontics, where you will be seen by our top-notch orthodontist, Dr. Richard G. Rosenbloom.
Invisalign is an extremely popular treatment option for many reasons. Not only are the clear plastic aligners virtually invisible while they are being worn, but patients are also able to eat anything they want during the treatment time. This is because the clear plastic aligners are removed while patients are eating. However, not all patients are good candidates for treatment with Invisalign in Fishkill. This is because this type of tooth straining system uses aligners instead of metal wires and brackets.
For this reason, not all types of bite situations can be corrected in this manner. Our orthodontist will be able to assess whether or not you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign. Although there are those bite problems that cannot be corrected with Invisalign, a great many different types of bite problems can be. Invisalign even has a treatment system called Invisalign Teen which is especially useful for teens and helps with treatment compliance as well as with certain problems which can develop during teen orthodontic treatment, such as late eruption of certain teeth.
Once you are determined to be a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign CAD/CAM computer technology will be used to create your individual series of aligners. Your set of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it depending on the bite problem being corrected. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and will move your teeth into position for the next aligner. Once you have finished wearing the last aligner in the series, your treatment is completed.
