Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
While the results may appear the same—a confident, beautiful smile—when you stop and actually compare Invisalign® to other teeth-straightening options, the advantages become quite apparent. Knowing the pros and cons of each option ahead of time will help you make a more confident decision.
How does Invisalign work?
Once we’ve determined that you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, Dr. Saran or another member of our team will take a detailed scan of your teeth using their 3M Digital Scanner so that we can have a series of clear, custom-made aligners created. Each of these aligners represents a different stage of your smile as it slowly shifts into a much more ideal position; all you have to do is wear them for the instructed amount of time before switching to the next in the set. Also, we ask that you attend regular, brief check-ups at our Long Island City practice so that we can ensure you’re progressing smoothly through the treatment process.
Invisalign treatment offers patients several valuable benefits over metal braces. There are no uncomfortable wires or brackets to worry about – only smooth, clear plastic that’s been crafted to match your unique needs. Because of their removable nature, you won’t need to make any changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine at home. Best of all, we can usually complete your treatment in 6 -18 months, which is a significant improvement over the multiple years traditional orthodontics can often require.
