It can be disheartening to hear you need braces right before summer when you want to eat everything possible and take a lot of pictures. Fortunately, you may qualify for Invisalign® in Manhattan, NY. After a consultation, you will receive a personalized treatment plan with customized, clear aligners you put over your teeth. The clear aligners discreetly push teeth back into the desired positions over the course of the orthodontic treatment without any need for being self-conscious of how they make you look. Many people qualify, so visit our dentists in Manhattan, NY, at Smile In The City to see if they are right for you.
Before proceeding with any orthodontic treatment, you should have all wisdom teeth removed. The reason is that if these teeth erupt later in life, they can undo all the work done by your orthodontics. Our dental professional can recommend an oral surgeon so that patients remove their wisdom teeth before proceeding with Invisalign®.
Extreme cases of overcrowding may still require metal braces. However, these aligners are still great for a number of different cosmetic issues, including:
Traditional braces adhere to teeth, but you can actually remove your aligners for up to two hours every day. While this is convenient, it also means patients need to take more responsibility. They can remove their aligners during meals and when they brush their teeth, but they have to make sure to keep their aligners in for at least 22 hours every day. Otherwise, the treatment will not work.
Dr. Nargiz Schmidt will examine your smile to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. Not everyone will qualify, but you can rest assured our team will find an orthodontic treatment that works for you. We are currently accepting new patients, so call us at (347) 269-2305 to improve your smile this summer. Contact us today!
