Invisalign® Clear Braces in Medford
Many older patients dream of achieving straighter teeth, but the thought of wearing noticeable, metal braces is just too much. At Island Daily Dental Care, we understand these concerns and want to help you improve the aesthetic value of your smile without having to sacrifice its natural appearance for months in the process. If you’re from the Long Island, NY area, contact our Medford, NY location today to schedule your initial consultation, or if you have any questions for our team.
How does Invisalign work?
The Invisalign treatment eliminates the traditional bracket-and-wire model from orthodontic treatment entirely, replacing it with a series of clear, custom-made aligners. Our doctors will start the process by capturing detailed impressions of your smile and sending them to the Invisalign lab, who will fabricate a series of aligners that each represent a different stage of your smile as the teeth are shifted into the desired position. During treatment, wear the trays as directed for at least 22 hours a day, keep them clean, and attend routine checkups here in Medford, NY.
In addition to Invisalign being aesthetically pleasing, the removable nature of the aligners is an added convenience. This means that you can continue to eat all of your favorite foods and practice your normal oral hygiene routine with no major disruptions. If you have a party, graduation, wedding, or other big event coming up, you can even remove the aligner for a few hours and enjoy yourself to the fullest!
