The alignment of a person’s teeth can often affect how their smile looks. Misaligned teeth not only make a smile look less attractive, but they can also place undue pressure on certain areas of the teeth and jaws, causing pain and tooth damage. Though there are traditional metal braces that can be put in place, many people, especially adults, do not feel comfortable having a mouth full of metal. For these people, there is Invisalign Queens NY.
When a patient seeks information on Invisalign Queens NY, they first need to schedule a consultation appointment with the dentist. The dentist will need to fully examine the person’s smile to determine whether or not Invisalign will be an option for them.
Invisalign is a clear braces system that uses clear aligner trays to move the teeth into their desired positions. Since there is no metal wiring or brackets, these are considered much more comfortable. A clear system allows people to be treated without anyone else knowing their teeth are being given orthodontic care.
With this treatment process, a person simply has images made of their smile and then these are uploaded and sent to the Invisalign lab that works with the dentist to create a progressive treatment plan. The goal is to slowly shift the teeth into a more desirable position, so the person’s smile appearance is improved.
Many patients can receive the results they are looking for within one year. In some cases of severe alignment issues, further treatment may be needed. Some children may need to wear a retainer after they have been treated with Invisalign Queens NY. The dentist will be able to give the patient full information on what they can expect from their treatment and how long they will need to wear their Invisalign liners.
Northern Plaza Dental Care will be happy to schedule you a consultation appointment so you can get started on restoring the beauty of your smile.
