If you are looking for a way to straighten your smile and boost your confidence, we offer Invisalign® at Putnam Dental Associates in Brewster, NY. Developed as a simpler, more comfortable alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign® can correct malocclusion and give your smile attractive symmetry. We will provide a series of clear, custom-made Invisalign® trays that gradually guide your teeth into alignment. Meanwhile, you will be able to eat any foods you choose, easily clean your mouthpieces, and feel confident wearing orthodontics that are virtually invisible to everyone around you.
Invisalign® treatment can address:
Once it has been determined that Invisalign® is a suitable way to help you straighten your smile, your dentist will take digital impressions of your teeth and jaws. This information will be used to create your aligners and provide a preview of the results you can expect to achieve at the end of treatment.
Once you have received your trays, you will begin wearing the first set for 20 to 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. Every two weeks, you will graduate to the next set of aligners in the series. Each set will bring your smile closer to proper alignment. Overall treatment time is similar to what traditional braces would require.
The greatest benefit of Invisalign® is a straighter smile. Straight teeth are easier to clean, helping you to avoid decay. Your smile will also achieve a better balance between the upper and lower jaws, helping you to avoid the jaw joint inflammation that can result in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
During treatment, you can eat any foods you like, and brushing and flossing are no more difficult than before. You will not have to worry about conspicuous brackets and wires, and the smooth plastic aligners will not irritate the soft tissues of your mouth. In short, Invisalign® is a fit for virtually any lifestyle, and can provide valuable lifelong benefits.
We can use PROPEL® Orthodontics to help you achieve the desired Invisalign® results up to 50% faster. By using a procedure called Alveocentesis™, PROPEL® can work with Invisalign® to stimulate the production of alveolar bone tissue in the upper and lower jaw. This procedure helps the bone to adjust more quickly to the new positions of your teeth.
Dr. Gianna Ferranti explains how Invisalign® can align your smile while improving your oral health. Invisalign® is a discreet, comfortable, and effective way to straighten crooked, misaligned teeth. Once your teeth are straight, you will find that it is much easier to brush and floss effectively.
