Our platinum Invisalign® dentists in the Bronx, NY are experts in correcting many different orthodontic problems such as crossbites, open bites, underbites and overbites. While modern braces may claim to be invisible, only Invisalign® is truly invisible. This system can also treat problems with overcrowding or can help to close up gaps in between teeth. Although it is possible to correct issues like this with dental veneers or with crowns, orthodontic treatment can sometimes be a much more conservative option, particularly if your teeth just need to be straightened up and are otherwise strong and healthy and nicely shaped.
What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign® braces are a transparent alternative to the more common metal wire braces. Instead, you wear clear incremental aligners that place consistent pressure on your teeth to promote sustained movement to a more desired, straightened position, making your smile beautiful again.
Instead of using highly visible brackets and wires, Invisalign® utilizes clear plastic aligners. These are very thin, forming a tight cover over your teeth. You simply wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, ideally only removing them whenever you eat and whenever you want to brush and floss your teeth.
They are specially designed to carefully move your teeth into the correct positions. These positions will have been predetermined as part of your treatment plan. During your treatment you will exchange each set of aligners for a new set every two weeks as this will continue your tooth movements. Treatment continues until your teeth are fully straightened.
The exact number of aligners required depends on your treatment plan and can vary from just a few for more cosmetically oriented problems, to multiple aligners to correct more complex issues with the way your teeth bite together.

Orthodontic Treatment for More Than Just Your Smile
Orthodontic treatment has become much more accessible over the past few years, which has encouraged a greater number of adults to take the plunge and to straighten up their smile. The introduction of newer and easier to use braces, for example Invisalign®, has gone quite a long way towards revolutionizing orthodontic treatment, as Invisalign® is amazingly easy to use while providing results that can be truly remarkable.
It’s highly likely that you already know one or two people who have had Invisalign® treatment. However, there may be quite a few more kept their orthodontic treatment very quiet, which is part of the beauty of Invisalign®. Of course, most people want to have orthodontic treatment to improve the appearance of their teeth, but sometimes treatment can do far more than just improve your smile.
Another nice thing about Invisalign® is the proprietary software used with this system that creates virtual images showing how your teeth will move into the correct positions. It’s a great way to see just how treatment could help you, even before you decide to go ahead.
Why Do You Need an Invisalign®?
Do you find it tricky to floss in between all your teeth? Perhaps some of your teeth are so badly overlapping or overcrowded that flossing is nearly impossible? Maybe you have gaps in between your teeth that often trap food? All these things can be irritating, but they may be detrimental to your dental health. Being unable to thoroughly brush and floss all your tooth surfaces increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Now imagine being able to brush and floss with ease, and to know that you have thoroughly cleaned your entire mouth without having to deal with bits of floss stuck in between your teeth. Imagine being able to eat foods like chips or cookies without finding bits packed into the gaps in between your teeth several hours later. Orthodontic treatment can achieve this, creating a healthier environment in your mouth that is easier to keep clean, while of course your newly straightened teeth should look amazing.
These health benefits might be a secondary consideration but they definitely shouldn’t be ignored. Orthodontic treatment could help prolong the life of your natural teeth and may well save you money in restorative treatments in the future.
