Gain a Straighter Smile with Invisalign

If you don't have naturally straight teeth, you're not alone. You can still achieve a straighter smile without getting braces. In New Hyde Park, NY, Invisalign from your dentist, Dr. Sejal Shah of Tooth Time Dental Studio, is changing smiles and lives.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign clear aligners are orthodontic appliances that help straighten crooked smiles and correct problems with your bite. They are entirely different from traditional metal braces as they have no metal parts. They slowly shift your teeth to correct your bite by applying gentle pressure.

Getting Invisalign in New Hyde Park, NY

If you think that you'd be a great fit for Invisalign treatment, you should begin with a dental consultation. Your dentist will examine your teeth to determine if you will benefit from Invisalign. Lots of dental defects can benefit from Invisalign including:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Gapped teeth

When your dentist determines that Invisalign is a great treatment for you, you can proceed with your treatment. Next up is getting your dental impression taken. Your dentist uses your dental impression to create custom clear aligners for your treatment. Your orthodontic treatment may require about 20-30 Invisalign clear aligners.

During your treatment, you'll need to keep up with regular dental appointments. At these dental appointments, your dentist monitors your treatment's progress. 

How Invisalign Works 

Straightening your smile with Invisalign requires consistency. Wearing your clear aligners for about 22 hours daily is a must. Consistent pressure is necessary to correct your tooth imperfections. You move up in your orthodontic treatment with Invisalign every two weeks as you switch to a new set of aligners. Each set of aligners progressively adjusts your teeth until you get your desired results.

Invisalign allows you to correct your smile without having to give up the things you love. They're removable so that you can still eat your favorite foods. Cleaning your teeth is also not a problem.

Your smile can become straighter when you get Invisalign in New Hyde Park, NY, from your dentist, Dr. Shah of Tooth Time Dental Studio. Call 516-519-8080 or 516-519-8081 to schedule your dental visit today.
