Straight teeth look great and make your teeth easy to keep clean. For many patients, however, braces aren’t worth the trouble or the alteration to their appearance.

To find out if you’re a candidate for Invisalign and how the system can improve your teeth, call Wappinger Falls Dental Arts or book your appointment online today.
Invisalign is a unique system of custom aligners that straighten your teeth. The system consists of clear, plastic devices that fit over your teeth and move them into a straight position. Invisalign is the most advanced invisible teeth alignment system available and has given gorgeously straight teeth to six million patients and counting.
Your dentist takes images of your teeth to create a digital image of their current positioning and a map of their projected movement as you straighten them. Then, they create your series of aligners. Each of them puts pressure on different areas of your teeth to gradually move them into their new position over the course of 12-18 months, on average.
You’ll need to wear each aligner as much as possible — for 1-2 weeks each, 20-22 hours each day, taking them out only for eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. You might feel some pressure when you first switch to each aligner, but no part of the process is painful.
Invisalign has many benefits that make it a top choice for straighter teeth at any age. Many people choose Invisalign over traditional braces because:
Many patients see traditional braces as being socially acceptable for adolescents. However, even teenagers can keep their confidence without large metal braces affecting their appearance for months or years at a time.
Caring for your Invisalign aligners is simple. They’re much easier to clean than braces because you can remove them and brush your teeth as you normally would. You can buy a specialized Invisalign Cleaning System from your dentist or online or simply brush your aligners outside of your mouth with your toothbrush and lukewarm water. You should thoroughly clean your aligners and your teeth each time you take them out of your mouth.
Gone are the days of glaring metal appliances and sharp wires for straighter teeth. To find out more about how Invisalign can benefit your oral health and appearance, call Wappinger Falls Dental Arts or book your consultation online today.
