Improve the Aesthetics of Your Smile With Invisalign® in Hudson Valley

Do you hide your smile because of crooked or crowded teeth? Do you suffer from jaw pain because of orthodontic issues? If so, our experienced Invisalign dentists can help. Invisalign orthodontic aligners can quickly and effectively correct mild to moderate orthodontic issues without the need for the uncomfortable and unsightly wires and brackets associated with braces. Schedule a consultation today to find out if getting Invisalign in Hudson Valley is right for you.

What Can I Expect During Invisalign Treatment?

If you and your dentist decide that Invisalign is the best treatment for your orthodontic issues, we will take impressions, X-rays, and pictures of your teeth that will be used to create your custom aligner trays. The trays are made from clear plastic and place targeted pressure on your teeth to gradually move them into the correct position. You wear the aligners approximately 20 to 22 hours a day and switch to the next set of aligners in the series every two weeks.

Does Invisalign Cost More Than Braces?

Most patients find that their Invisalign cost is about the same as traditional braces. Your final cost depends on the severity of your orthodontic issues and the length of your treatment. We will provide you with an outline of your Invisalign cost once you and our dentist have decided on a treatment plan. Many dental plans cover all or part of the cost of orthodontic services. Our staff or your dental plan provider can help you determine if your treatment is covered by Invisalign insurance. If you need help covering out-of-pocket expenses, we also offer low-interest financing options and convenient payment plans.

How Long Is the Average Invisalign Treatment?

Treatment times can range anywhere from 10 months to two years depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues. Of course, failing to wear your aligners as recommended can prolong your treatment. Most of our adult patients wear their aligners for about a year. The treatment times for teens tend to vary more widely. Your dentist will be able to give you a better idea of your anticipated treatment time following your initial consultation. Most patients wear Invisalign retainers following their treatment to make sure that their teeth remain in alignment.

Do Your Invisalign Dentists Receive Specialized Training?

Most Invisalign dentists are either general dentists or orthodontists who have completed specialized training in using aligners to correct orthodontic problems. Our dentists have extensive experience using the Invisalign system and can help you achieve the straight, healthy smile that you have always wanted.

Who Is a Candidate for Invisalign vs. Braces?

Invisalign is not appropriate for all patients. The system is designed to treat mild to moderate alignment issues. Individuals with severe bite, crowding, or spacing issues typically obtain better results with traditional braces. The treatment is also most appropriate for teens and adults. Young children tend to have more complex orthodontic issues since their mouths are still developing. Most young children also lack the maturity and discipline to wear and care for the aligners appropriately, which can increase treatment time and cost. Schedule a consultation with one of our dentists today to find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign.

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign vs. Braces?

The most obvious benefit of Invisalign is their appearance. The aligner trays are virtually invisible, which means that you can enjoy a metal-free smile throughout your treatment. The fact that the trays are removable is another huge benefit. Not only does this allow you to eat all of your favorite foods, but it also means that it is easier to brush and floss, which reduces your risk of cavities or gum disease. Unlike metal braces that have metal wires and brackets that can irritate the mouth, Invisalign aligners are so comfortable that most patients barely notice them. With Invisalign, you only have to see the dentist every four to six weeks, so you spend less time away from work or school.

Are Invisalign Aligners Easy to Maintain?

Although there are no food restrictions with Invisalign, you should avoid chewing gum or using tobacco products while wearing your aligners. It is important to clean the aligners regularly by brushing and rinsing them with cool or lukewarm water or by using one of the cleaning systems available at our office. Although the trays are durable, you should take care not to do anything that may crack, warp, or otherwise damage your aligners. If you do accidentally damage an aligner, be sure to see us for a replacement as soon as possible since a damaged aligner will not work properly.
