If you want to have your teeth straightened, you will definitely want to visit us at Fifth Avenue Dental Associates. Our Dyker Heights dentist, will assess your bite situation and let you know which type of treatment option is best for you; at our office, we offer different orthodontic solutions, including Invisalign braces.
When patients come to our practice wanting to have their teeth straightened, they will be seen by one of our expert orthodontists, either Dr. Marc Schiller or Dr. George Pliakas. Invisalign is a very popular treatment option for our adult patients since they allow people to have their teeth straightened without being seen wearing metal wires and brackets on their teeth. Instead, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners which are virtually invisible while they are being worn. For this reason, treatment with Invisalign is often referred to as invisible braces. Our Dyker Heights dentist will first need to determine if your bite problem can be fixed by this innovative treatment process. Once it is found that you will be a good candidate for Invisalign, your individualized set of clear plastic aligners will be created with the use of CAD/CAM computer technology. Depending on the bite problem being corrected, your set of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Each aligner will be worn for two weeks, and will slowly move your teeth into position for the next aligner in the series. Once you have completed wearing the last aligner, you will have your beautiful new smile. Our patients thoroughly enjoy treatment with Invisalign because the clear plastic aligners are extremely comfortable in the mouth. Additionally, patients are able to eat anything they want during the entire treatment time since the clear plastic aligners are removed for meals. Patients can also keep their teeth clean and healthy by thoroughly brushing and flossing their teeth, without needing to work around braces wires and brackets.
