Clear Braces

At Sohosmile®, we have a certified provider of Invisalign® in NYC. Invisalign® can help to gradually shift crooked, misaligned teeth into place for an even and symmetrical smile. Invisalign® uses clear aligner technology so that you can smile with confidence while straightening your teeth. Invisalign® is virtually unnoticeable and can achieve results without the bulky components of traditional braces. Invisalign® is a versatile treatment that can help straighten the teeth of adults and even teenagers.

WHAT IS INVISALIGN®?

Invisalign® provides clear aligner trays that are worn for the majority of the day to gradually shift your smile. Invisalign® aligners are typically worn for about 2 weeks at a time for each aligner to shift the teeth a predetermined amount. Following the first set of clear aligners, you will be provided with additional sets of Invisalign® aligners that will continue to shift your teeth even closer to the desired position. Invisalign® does not require dietary restrictions, as these clear aligners are removable when eating. Invisalign® aligners are easier to clean than braces and can straighten the teeth quickly and effectively.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INVISALIGN® AND METAL BRACES?

One of the main differences between Invisalign® and metal braces is that Invisalign® uses clear aligner trays to straighten the teeth, whereas metal braces use a metal wire and bracket system to shift the teeth into place. Traditional metal braces are typically used for more severe cases of overcrowding and misalignment issues. Invisalign® is an effective alternative to metal braces that can straighten the teeth with clear aligner trays that are virtually unnoticeable. Invisalign® is typically used for more mild-to-moderate cases of teeth misalignment.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR INVISALIGN®?

Ideal Invisalign® candidates are adults and teenagers looking to straighten their smile. In order to receive Invisalign® aligners, the health of your teeth and smile are important. If an underlying oral condition is found, Dr. John Koutsoyiannis can provide an effective treatment plan. Once this condition is corrected, Dr. Koutsoyiannis can begin discussing your Invisalign® treatment.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY INVISALIGN® FITTING?

At your initial consultation, our New York City Invisalign® dentist performs a complete checkup of your teeth and gums to make sure you’re a proper candidate for Invisalign®. Physical molds or 3D digitized scans are needed to get impressions of your teeth. The impressions are sent to Invisalign® and are used by Dr. John to design your personalized Invisalign® treatment. At this point, Dr. John can provide an estimate of how many sets of clear aligners may be needed to reach your goals.

Once the case has been received from Invisalign®, you will receive a pair of clear aligner trays that fit over the teeth. Clear attachments may be placed on a number of your teeth to assist with movement. One of the most important aspects of Invisalign® is that the clear braces must be worn for at least 20 hours or more each day. Invisalign® braces should only be removed when eating or brushing your teeth. It is important to wear them at all other times for the best Invisalign® results. Invisalign® treatments vary in length depending on how much your teeth need to be straightened. Invisalign® treatments can last anywhere from 2-24 months depending on the severity of your case.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY INVISALIGN® FITTING?

After receiving your first set of Invisalign® aligners, it is important to maintain proper oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth twice a day and cleansing your clear aligners are important to maintaining a healthy smile. Invisalign® aligners must be worn for a minimum of 20 hours or more a day. After your teeth have properly shifted, you will move on to your next set of Invisalign® clear aligners to continue straightening your smile.

After you have achieved a straighter smile with Invisalign®, retainers are needed in order to maintain your results. If retainers are not worn as directed, your teeth may shift back or become misaligned.

Similar to your Invisalign® trays, you cannot eat with your retainers in, and proper cleaning of the retainers is necessary on a daily basis. In addition to wearing your retainers, routine dental examinations and cleanings can help maintain your healthy, straight smile.
