What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of clear removable aligners that have been fixing smiles since 1998. Millions of patients around the world have been treated with this innovative orthodontic technology over the years. Made of multiple layers of medical-grade plastic with rounded edges for maximum comfort in your mouth and over your teeth, Invisalign treats a variety of problems from the minor to the more complex including overbite, underbite, open bite, crossbite, overcrowding, gaps between teeth, and crookedness.

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign works by gradually shifting your teeth into alignment over a period of time. Dr. Gibbs or Dr. Kaplan will examine your teeth to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment. An iTero scanner creates a digital model of your teeth so a set of aligners can be made just for you. Patients wear the aligners for 22 hours a day and switch to a new set every two weeks. This switch is necessary to maintain pressure on your teeth since your teeth will have shifted just a little bit.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Invisalign treatment can last between 12-15 months, but can be shorter or longer depending on the complexity of your problem, how well your teeth respond to treatment, and whether you consistently wear the aligners. Failure to wear the aligners consistently can result in setbacks.

What Can I Use To Clean Invisalign?

Cleaning Invisalign is easy and convenient because you can remove the aligners. There are several professional cleaning products available, many of which can clean your aligners in just minutes and are perfect for those on the go. There are also home remedies you can use.

  • Cleaning Crystals
  • Unscented and Uncolored Dish/Hand Soaps
  • Soft Toothbrush and Non-Abrasive Toothpaste
  • Cleaning Tablets
  • WhiteFoam
  • OAP Gel and Foam
  • Baking Soda and Vinegar
  • Hydrogen Peroxide

Clean every nook and cranny of your aligners to prevent the growth of bacteria and the build-up of plaque that causes tooth decay and gum disease. You should clean your aligners every chance you get, but the best time to do so is in the morning, at night before you go to bed, and after every meal and snack. Clean your teeth after eating as well.

What Is The Cost Of Invisalign Upper East Side NYC?

Invisalign can cost between $3,500 to $8,000. But the price can be lower or higher depending on your location, the complexity of your misalignment, length of treatment, and the experience level of your orthodontist. Invisalign Upper East Side NYC has this same price range. The good news is that there are financing options available that make Invisalign affordable.

Gibbs Orthodontic Associates offers low monthly payment plans that fit just about any budget. We also accept most dental insurance providers and major credit cards. Insurance usually covers at least part of the cost of treatment, which can save you thousands of dollars. We will help you file insurance claims.

Invisalign vs Braces

Braces and Invisalign are both effective treatments that fix misalignments by gradually shifting your teeth over time. Both treatments cost around the same and the length of treatment is similar. However, Invisalign offers more convenience and requires little to no change in your lifestyle.

Braces are not removable and are visible while Invisalign is the opposite. That’s why braces also come with dietary restrictions and are more difficult to clean. However, you never have to remember to wear your braces while you can forget to wear your aligners. In addition, there are more follow-up appointments during treatment with braces.

If Invisalign is not working for you, you can easily switch to braces.

Is Invisalign The Same As Invisalign Teen?

Invisalign Teen is the same treatment but with two minor differences. The aligners feature a blue dot that fades away the more your teen wears them. A visible blue dot means you are not wearing them enough. The set also comes with more aligners just in case your teen loses or damages them. Never wear Invisalign as a sports mouthguard. The aligners are too thin to provide adequate protection.

What Are The Benefits Of A Healthy Smile?

Misalignments and other problems with the teeth and jaws can become worse over time. You may even start to notice changes in your appearance and other issues such as:

  • Trouble chewing
  • Speech problems
  • TMJ disorder
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay and loss
  • Resulting bone loss

Fixing your orthodontic problems early is the best way to prevent these problems from getting worse. Our patients have seen their own smiles transform before their eyes, often noticing results in just weeks. They also notice their health improving as their teeth and jaws become healthier, giving them even more confidence to show off their smiles.
