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.
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.
