Invisalign Clear Braces

Very few people are born with naturally straight teeth. As we age, and as baby teeth fall out and permanent teeth take their place, all kinds of crookedness and displacement can occur.

Some people have overcrowding in their mouth due to some teeth coming in too close together; others may struggle with gaps between teeth. Persistent amounts of clenching and grinding can also affect how crooked or straight our teeth are.

With all of these factors playing a part in a crooked smile, it’s no wonder that many patients turn to Dr. Todd Goldstein for help in straightening their teeth through Invisalign clear aligners.

What Are Invisalign Clear Braces?

Invisalign clear aligners are an orthodontic system used to gradually straighten teeth. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners, each shaped to gradually bring your smile into a beautiful, healthy, straight smile.

The process is simple: you start with the first set of aligners in the series, and you wear them for about two weeks, or until they fit your teeth perfectly. Once they fit perfectly, you switch to the next set of aligners and continue this until your smile is perfectly straight!

The Invisalign system is usually quicker and less painful for patients than that of traditional metal braces.

Benefits of Invisalign Invisible Braces

When you choose Invsialign clear aligners with Dr. Goldstein, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Increased Overall Health: Straighter teeth have been linked to a better ability to chew food properly. This leads to easier digestion and fewer health issues that come from bad digestion.
  • Less Wear and Tear on Teeth and Gums: Traditional braces typically cause a lot of discomfort with all the wires and brackets rubbing against sensitive areas in the mouth. Clear aligners are made out of smooth plastic and won’t cause those sorts of issues.
  • Ease of Wearing: Clear aligners like the ones Dr. Goldstein offers won’t be easily visible, plus they can slip on and off quickly.
  • Better Hygiene: It’s easy to keep your teeth clean and healthy with clear aligners as your straightening treatment—simply remove them whenever it’s time to brush and floss.
  • No Restrictions on Diet: Your aligners can also be removed for every meal and snack time, so long as you remember to put them back in when you’re done eating.

With all these benefits, Invisalign braces are the “clear” choice for many patients looking for orthodontic treatment in Manhattan.

Straight Teeth With Dr. Todd Goldstein

There’s more to a straight smile than simply aesthetic appearance. Any slight variation in a straight smile can cause our body to compensate for it in a number of ways—how we chew, the strain we put on various teeth, even how we talk.

Straight teeth improve bite, decrease the wear and tear on your teeth, and allow you to communicate and eat food with ease and comfort.
