Invisalign® in Hudson Valley, NY
If you could straighten your teeth without braces, would you? Our orthodontists in Hudson Valley offer Invisalign® clear aligners as an alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign is popular with adults and older teenagers who are seeking an aesthetic approach to straightening their teeth. Unlike braces, which are attached to each tooth, Invisalign clear aligners slip over the teeth. The aligners are made of a clear, smooth plastic that is very lightweight and comfortable. People wear them 20 to 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, or brush their teeth.
How Does Invisalign Work?
It’s a common question that our orthodontists in Hudson Valley hear: How does Invisalign work? Invisalign straightens your teeth using a series of custom-made aligners designed just for you. You simply slip the aligner over your teeth and it gently shifts the teeth into place. Every two weeks, you replace the aligner with a new one that is shaped just a little bit closer to the desired outcome. The length of time that you’re in treatment depends on how much the teeth need to move and the number of aligners it will take to achieve the desired positioning.
What Are the Benefits of Invisalign?
There are many benefits to Invisalign treatment. Some of these include:
- Clear aligners that are virtually invisible
- Smooth and comfortable to wear
- Proven to be effective in moving teeth into proper position
- No restrictions on what you eat or drink since the aligners are removable
- Easier to keep teeth clean through brushing and flossing since the aligners are removable
- No brackets or wires
- No mouth irritation

Many people find Invisalign to be the perfect solution for their busy schedule. Doctor visits are typically every six weeks for Invisalign wearers. People with traditional braces typically return every four weeks.
