Improved, Straightened Teeth with Invisalign in Mount Vernon NY

In the past, you only had one option when it came to straightening your teeth. You had to choose wire braces. To many people, this was inconvenient and uncomfortable, plus it did not look good to them. Although it did not look good at the time, they were effective. There is now another option when it comes to teeth straightening. If you are open to another option, you may want to consider Invisalign in Mount Vernon NY.

Invisalign is a bit more expensive than traditional wire braces, but in many cases is preferred due to the appearance. The aligners themselves are clear, making them less likely to be detected by other people. The aligners are also removable so they can be taken out while eating or during your dental regimen.

An advantage that Invisalign has over wire braces is that the aligner can be removed for maintenance. When it comes to maintaining wire braces, you need to go to the orthodontist to get them repaired or maintained while they are still in your mouth. When it comes to Invisalign, the aligner can be removed and maintained so you do not have to deal with the orthodontist messing around inside of your mouth.

After initially considering Invisalign, you need to go to the orthodontist to find out if you are a good candidate for the regimen. In some cases, Invisalign is not a good idea. Some people with certain tooth positioning may not be good candidates for Invisalign, so you want to make sure that your teeth are all right for it.

When it comes down to the regimen itself, in many cases, each set of aligners are worn for a few weeks at a time. You would then return to the orthodontist to have x-rays taken of your teeth, have tooth impressions made, and have a new set of aligners made for the next few weeks. As said before, the aligners should be taken out every time you eat or drink, and whenever you clean your teeth.

Now you have one more option when it comes to straightening your teeth. If you are taking teeth straightening into consideration, Anthony DeBenedictis D.D.S. can tell you about Invisalign in Mount Vernon NY.
