DR. CHRISTOPHER PALADINO IS A CERTIFIED INVISALIGN® PROVIDER IN THE MERRICK, NY AREA
If you’ve always desired straight teeth but don’t want to wear braces, consider Invisalign. To find out whether Invisalign is a good option for you, schedule a visit with your orthodontist.
WHAT IS IT?
Because Invisalign aligners are clear and removable, no one will know you’re wearing them. It’s because of this that you will be able to smile more during and after the procedure. For Invisalign, 3D computer imaging technology is employed, which has been shown to be effective. Only trust certified orthodontists when seeking Invisalign.
WHY WOULD I WANT IT?
Unlike braces, which are permanently attached to the teeth, aligners may be taken out and eaten or drunk while wearing them. It’s also easy to brush and floss. Because there is no metal in them, patients won’t have mouth sores after therapy. The absence of metal and cables generally results in shorter visits to the doctor’s office. When you first begin treatment with Invisalign, you may see a virtual simulation of your final smile, complete with straight teeth.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
For around two weeks, you wear each set of aligners, only taking them out to eat, drink, clean, and floss your teeth. Once your teeth have shifted to the ultimate position advised by your dentist, you may remove one aligner and replace it with the next. You’ll come back every six weeks or so to check on the progress of your therapy. As a rule of thumb, treatment lasts between nine and 15 months, and the number of aligners used varies between 18 and 30.Back to Top
