If you are regretting the fact that you never were able to have your teeth straightened when you were a teen, we urge you to visit us at our dental practice, Elliott Gutman, DMD. Our top-notch dentist, Dr. Elliott Gutman can provide you with a beautifully straighten smile using NYC Invisalign
When a patient comes to our dental practice wanting to have their teeth straightened with NYC Invisalign, our dentist will first need to make sure that your particular bite problem can be corrected with this treatment method. Since Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal wires and brackets, it cannot fix all bite problems; however, a great many bite problems can be fixed with this innovative treatment system. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for treatment with Invisalign, CAD/CAM computer technology will be used to create your individualized series of aligners. Depending on the bite problem being corrected, your series of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Each aligner will be worn for two weeks and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner in the series. Once you have finished wearing the last aligner, you will have your beautifully-straightened smile. Our patients thoroughly enjoy treatment with Invisalign because they can attend work and social gatherings without ever needing to be concerned that they will be embarrassed being seen wearing unattractive braces on their teeth. In fact, the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible while they are being worn, giving Invisalign the common nickname of invisible braces. Our patients also enjoy the fact that they can eat anything they want during the entire treatment period because the aligners are removed during meals. This also means that our patients can thoroughly brush and floss their teeth every day, keeping their teeth healthy during the treatment time.
