Forget those unsightly, tough-to-clean metal braces. The leading team of dentists at Lake Success Dental Care, located in New Hyde Park, New York, correct a wide array of alignment issues – from gaps to overbites – with the pain-free Invisalign® system.
Invisalign is the first and most widely used brand of “invisible braces.” This ground-breaking alternative to metal braces utilizes a series of invisible, plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth over time. It has been used to by dentists to create beautiful smiles since 1999.
Invisalign can correct mild or moderate problems of crowding and spacing. It cannot correct all of the severe bite issues that metal braces can. The dentist will assess whether you are a viable candidate for Invisalign.
We have achieved excellent results in correcting a variety of issues, including:
First, the dentist assesses whether you’re a viable candidate for Invisalign. Once that is determined, the dentist takes photographs, X-rays, and impressions of your teeth, from which the Invisalign lab creates a digital 3-D image. Based on these images, the dentist submits a detailed prescription that maps out a step-by-step treatment plan as to how your teeth will be moved into place and the approximate length of time that will take. Based on the dentist’s prescription, Invisalign makes a series of transparent aligners that gradually reposition your teeth. You’ll receive new aligners every 2-3 weeks; each set is designed to move your teeth a fraction of a millimeter. Each case is different; Invisalign treatment ranges from several months to several years.
There are many, including:
