Now you can get straighter and healthier teeth with Invisalign offered at 5th Avenue Dental Associates in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. This state-of-the-art orthodontic procedure will straighten your teeth without the traditional wires and brackets of braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth, except for you and your Bay Ridge cosmetic dentist.
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
Not only is Invisalign versatile, helping to correct a broad range of dental and orthodontic issues, but it really works. But a confident smile isn’t the only benefit of correcting your dental issues with custom-made Invisalign aligners at your Bay Ridge orthodontist—your health can be positively impacted as well.
For those patients who still want to go the route of traditional wire braces, at 5th Avenue Dental Associates, we offer the latest technological advances in orthodontic care such as regular and tooth-colored braces. We also perform orthodontic procedures such as bite or tooth position adjustments.
