Could Invisalign Be the Answer?
Do you want to fix your crooked smile? Then Invisalign might be the solution.
Tired of everyone noticing that gap between your front teeth? Want to feel confident in your smile but think you’re too old for braces? Think again! Our Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY family dentists, Drs. Frank and Merryl Visintini, are here to tell you more about Invisalign and how this clear orthodontic system may finally give you the results you want without the hassle of wearing traditional braces.
Are you looking for a subtle way to straighten your teeth?
If you said “yes” then you’ve come to the right place. Invisalign has been providing countless teens and adults with the opportunity to get straighter smiles without the need for embarrassing metal brackets and wires.
Instead of the traditional style of braces, Invisalign uses multiple clear, plastic aligners that are custom-made to fit over your upper and/or lower teeth. These aligners fit snug against your teeth to provide the amount of pressure and force needed to gradually shift teeth into their ideal alignment.
So, are you right for Invisalign?
If you are a teen or adult who is tired of having a crooked or misaligned smile but doesn’t want to wear awkward and bulky metal braces in order to do it, then our Bay Ride, Brooklyn dentists are here to tell you that Invisalign might just be the best approach for getting the results you want. Of course, there are some factors that play into whether or not Invisalign is the right treatment.
Your age: As we mentioned, both teens and adults can benefit from Invisalign as long as all of their permanent teeth have erupted included second molars. In younger teens, many of their second molars haven’t come in yet. Once all baby teeth have fallen out and permanent teeth have come in then Invisalign could be the right orthodontic treatment.
The dental issues: During your consultation, we will sit down with you to find out what it is you want to fix about your smile so that we can determine the best course of action. While Invisalign is great for treating everything from crowding, minor crookedness, and other malocclusions (“bad bites”), it won’t be able to handle all of the same problems traditional braces can. If complicated tooth movements or jaw issues present, then Invisalign might not be the best approach.
Your dedication: It’s also important to consider just how committed you are to your treatment. Since aligners are removable it can certainly be tempting to leave them out all day while going to school or work but it’s important that you wear your aligners as much as possible. If you think you’ll be too tempted to take them off then you may want to consider a more traditional orthodontic option.
If you are ready to find out if you are an ideal candidate for Invisalign then it’s time you turned to the dental experts at Visintini Dental in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY. We are here to help you determine the best treatment option to give you your dream smile.
