Dr. Andrew Cohen offers Invisalign® orthodontics to help straighten your smile. Invisalign is an excellent option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth without the use of traditional metal braces.
Instead of relying on brackets and wires to correct the positioning of your teeth, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made and computer-generated plastic aligners. Each set of aligners works to make small changes to the alignment of your teeth, and as you switch to a new set of aligners every few weeks your teeth will slowly and gently move into their proper positions. You will meet with our dentist regularly throughout your treatment so that we can make sure everything is progressing as planned.
Invisalign is used to correct all the same problems as traditional orthodontic treatment. These include crowded, crooked and gapped teeth, as well as bad bites. There are many other benefits to choosing Invisalign orthodontic treatment in addition to a straighter, healthier smile. Some of these benefits include:
- A nearly invisible treatment. Because your aligners are made of clear plastic, they are not easily noticeable when in your mouth.
- A more comfortable treatment. Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth. Unlike braces, they have no wires or protruding metal parts, so your gums and soft tissues will not become irritated.
- Minimal or no changes to your lifestyle. Your aligners are removable, so you can eat what you like and continue to brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
If you receive Invisalign, remember to clean your aligners regularly. As they are made of clear plastic, aligners that are not cleaned regularly can cause your teeth to appear stained, dirty or gray.
