Invisalign braces are some of the most popular braces that people opt for. Invisalign is used for patients who do not want visibility with their braces. Traditional braces can be seen by the naked eye. Invisalign is virtually invisible. At Central Park Dentists our braces in Boerum Hill can be made to order according to each individual.
Some patients do not want the hassle of wearing traditional metal braces. Traditional braces take about the same amount of time as Invisalign to straighten teeth, except they use hardware and brackets to pull the teeth slowly into alignment over time. Traditional braces are just as good as invisible braces, however they are more visible. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth, without the metal wires or brackets. When you come in for your braces in Boerum Hill, we first make a unique custom made tray precisely fitted to your teeth. We then fabricate each series of aligners using state of the art 3-D computer generated graphics. This allows us to calibrate each piece properly to the mouth. At each stage, you’ll receive a different aligner that will move your teeth slowly to its desired position over time. Each set is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next in the series, until a final level of straightening is achieved.
If it is determined that Invisalign braces in Boerum Hill are right for you, we will immediately begin work on your new aligners. The process is quick and easy and uses no screws to tighten, such as traditional braces. Invisalign braces can take up to a year to align depending on the severity of the misalignment. Treatment time varies depending on the patient and their needs. Some patients may need to wear a retainer after Invisalign, just like those who have received traditional orthodontics.
