These days, it's more important than ever for you to feel comfortable about your smile. However, for some people, that isn't always a possibility because their teeth are crooked or misaligned. As a result, they may feel shy, embarrassed and uncomfortable showing off their personality and what makes them so special.
If this applies to you, it's time to stop letting your teeth hold you back from having the self-esteem that you deserve. To take action today, schedule a meeting with New York orthodontist Dr. Tanya Vaysman of Upper Eastside Orthodontists. Dr. Vaysman attended a two-year postgraduate program at New York University Dental school to receive her orthodontic specialty certification and has been the recipient of numerous awards for her work, so you can rest assured you'll receive top-quality care.
What exactly is Invisalign?
During your consultation, Dr. Vaysman may tell you that you are a good candidate for Invisalign. If you've heard the name before, but you weren't really clear what Invisalign could do for you, you'll be excited to discover that this type of treatment can straighten your teeth without brackets, bands or wires.
Your chompers will slowly shift your teeth into place over time by using custom aligners that are virtually invisible. The top and bottom trays are made of smooth plastic so that they fit comfortably. Every two weeks, you switch out the old ones and wear two new aligners.
In most cases, Invisalign is worn anywhere from 20 to 22 hours per day. You'll remove them when you eat, brush and floss your teeth. One of the many great things about wearing the aligners is that they are easy to clean and don't require you to accommodate any dietary restrictions!
How long will my treatment last?
On average, people who are being treated using Invisalign wear their trays for around nine to 18 months. You'll see your orthodontist in New York every month or so, just as you would if you were had other forms of orthodontics like adult braces.
However, Dr. Vaysman will tell you that every case is based on the individual's needs. You may only need to come in every six weeks. Invisalign makes it convenient to straighten your teeth. Most patients go through anywhere between 18 and 30 trays, but again this varies from case to case.
At Upper Eastside Orthodontists, we understand that you are busy. We'll work around your schedule so that coming in for appointments is convenient for you.
How can I get started?
Once you've called for an appointment, Dr. Vaysman will meet with you to see whether you could benefit from Invisalign. If she deems it the right choice for you, a mold of your teeth will be created so that we can order you your aligners. Once your trays come in, you can pick them up from our office and begin your treatment.
