It’s hard to imagine there was a time when metal braces and headgear was a normal way to straighten teeth. Luckily, there are more comfortable ways to get it done in the 21st century! We are happy to offer clear, unobtrusive retainers to improve your smile without anyone knowing.
At Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale, we have the expertise to help you get the smile you want for all the upcoming summer photos. Dr. Celenza, our orthodontist, is here to help along with our friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our office offers the unobtrusive, Invisalign in Westchester County, NY.
The Invisalign Process
With Invisalign, you will receive a set of liners approximately every two weeks, or as determined by our experts. They are custom-made for your teeth and are almost invisible. They will move your teeth in a sequence that our orthodontist will regulate. This will minimize discomfort, as only one or two teeth move at a time in the order prescribed in your unique plan. Sometimes there will be a feeling some describe as “pressure” on the teeth, but this is a sign that it is working! The discomfort should only last two or three days with each new liner. The length of your treatment will depend on your customized plan, but most adults wear Invisalign for about a year.
You would need to wear the retainers for 20-22 hours a day, with removal only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. Good oral hygiene is important while your teeth are in the liners and we don’t recommend chewing gum. Liners should also be gently brushed and rinsed regularly.
