Love Family Dental offers Invisalign® in Astoria, NY
Invisalign® is an innovative orthodontic treatment that we offer at Love Family Dental because it consistently produces great results. Patients looking to straighten their teeth or in need of a bite correction should consider Invisalign®. It is a convenient, comfortable and a nearly invisible alternative to braces.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® is an orthodontic system made of BPA-free plastic material transformed into clear trays to align the teeth and jaw that is often as effective as metal braces. Not only are the metal brackets and wires eliminated, the clear aligners are also removable so eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or a photo-shoot, are not an issue.
Who is a Candidate for Invisalign®?
Typically people with the following dental conditions are good candidates for Invisalign:
• Crooked or protruding teeth
• Widely gapped or overly crowded teeth
• Open bite
What is the Invisalign® Process?
First, Dr. Love takes impressions of your mouth. These impressions are sent to Invisalign® Labs where they will create a custom treatment plan for you. Invisalign® then sends back a virtual time lapse presentation of how your smile should improve over the course of your treatment. If Invisalign® is decided on, than the aligners will be created and sent to Dr. Love for you to get started. Each aligner is to be worn for a two week period for at least 22 hours a day. Every aligner corresponds with an expected amount of movement that should be accomplished within the two week period making your mouth ready for the next aligner in the series. Treatment is usually completed within 12-18 months.
Why our Astoria Patients Choose Invisalign®
Choosing to fix your misaligned bite, or to straighten your teeth is an important decision. Invisalign® is just one option out of several orthodontic treatment alternatives you may consider.
Most patients choose Invisalign® because they can undergo orthodontic treatment without anyone else ever knowing. Many of our patients tend to be adults who never received braces as a child or for someone re-straitening their teeth. (Yes...many past teenagers who didn't wear their retainer's are our current adult Invisalign® clients)
