One of the drawbacks to traditional braces has always been that they are fixed. You have to leave them in your mouth 24 hours per day, no matter what. Now you have a choice. Invisalign, already boasting the advantage of being a clear aligner that is more cosmetically pleasing than old fashioned braces, is removable, making you more able to adjust your comfort level. Rosenberg Orthodontics is pleased to offer Invisalign as the latest innovation in orthodontic care. Our Fort Greene orthodontic treatment will give you straighter and better aligned teeth with a higher degree of comfort and far less fuss than you ever thought possible.
11211 Invisalign Orthodontic Aligners
Invisalign is a a system using a series of clear aligners. Each one is custom made to fit you and to serve its unique role in moving your teeth into the ideal position that has been determined by our Fort Greene orthodontist, Dr. Phillip E. Rosenberg. A total of between 12 and 48 aligners will be used, each one worn by you for two weeks before moving onto the next one in the series. You wear them all the time, even overnight, but you do take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually undetectable. So you won’t need to feel self-conscious when wearing them. They also are less likely to cause pain because there is no metal wiring to dig into your gums and you do get to take them out.
Straighter teeth will give you a more perfect smile, but living with misaligned teeth is more than just a visual concern. Crooked teeth are more difficult to floss between. This means you are more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease since it is harder to effectively remove plaque and food particles from between them. Misaligned teeth can also cause discomfort. Removable orthodontics like Invisalign are not for everyone. Let our orthodontist determine if you are a good candidate. But when you consider all of the benefits of our Fort Greene orthodontic treatment and removable orthodontics, it makes sense to find out as soon as possible. You could already be on the way to the straighter teeth you’ve been wanting.
Have you considered using braces to improve your smile? Some patients are wary of braces because they are unsure of how exactly all that metal and all those wires and really make a difference in their smiles. Our Fort Greene orthodontist and the rest of the staff at Rosenberg Orthodontics are here to give you the basics of how braces work. Firstly, it is important to note why braces and other similar orthodontic appliances are used. Our Fort Grenee orthodontist uses these devices in order to correct malocclusions, or an improper bite. Malocclusions can lead to other dental issues such as overcrowded teeth, spaces and gaps in between teeth, and more. In many instances of malocclusion problems, the use of braces is the answer. The main goal of using braces is to move the teeth into their proper position. This process works using the laws of physics. First, our Fort Grenee orthodontist will bond the brackets of the braces to your teeth. Next, arch wires will be threaded through the brackets. The tightness and the tension created by these wires are what move the teeth in the direction that they are supposed to go. This happens slowly over time, so that it is not painful or uncomfortable.

If you get braces from the experts at Rosenberg Orthodontics, you will need to come for visits regularly to have the wires of your braces tightened and adjusted in order to keep the progress of your treatment moving along on schedule. After your braces have been taken off, it is likely you will use a device called a retainer some of the time, to prevent your teeth from reverting back to their malocclusion position. Our Fort Greene orthodontist can make more personalized recommendations about how braces and other orthodontic devices can work for you during your next visit at Rosenberg Orthodontics.
