Our leader, Dr. Gary Bram, strongly believes that everyone deserves to have a beautiful and healthy smile, regardless of age or background. To that end, our Bayside, NY dentist’s office can offer you a safe and effective orthodontic treatment plan for the new year, one that will have you smiling with confidence in no time.
At Dental Expressions, you’ll be happy to hear that you won’t be stuck with metal braces for 2-3 years. Our preferred method for orthodontic realignment is called Invisalign. This program depends on clear aligners to achieve the results you desire, in far less time than old-school methods. Keep reading to hear why patients love this great alternative to metal brackets and wires, and then be sure to call us at 718-395-5331 to request your Invisalign consultation today. We’re ready when you are.
With traditional braces, you can still accomplish big things. But it comes at a personal cost. And not all patients are willing to pay it. Invisalign makes it easy to undergo the dental work because, as we already stated, it uses clear aligners. These are made of a comfortable plastic material, rather than stark metal brackets and wires that poke your mouth. Accordingly, there won’t be any bleeding or sores associated with your Invisalign orthodontic gear. And because the hardware is clear, no one will have to know what you are up to in your mouth.
Regular metal brackets and wires will remain right where they are (except for those awkward adjustments) for the entire duration of the treatment. And that process can last several years. If you were stuck wearing braces, there are many things you wouldn’t be able to eat. And, regardless, you’d need to carry around special tools for cleaning.
By contrast, you just remove the Invisalign aligners whenever you are about to eat. And when you are done with dinner, you will simply brush and floss your teeth as usual. It sounds too good to be true. But that is the reality of the situation. That said, you do need to be diligent about wearing your aligners for most of the day (like 22 hours of it) every day. All things considered, though, that is a small price to pay.
The Invisalign process, for the right candidate, will wrap up in about 12 months. That is about half the time (for a lot of patients it is more like one third of the time) that braces would take to achieve similar results. Plus, we’ll be able to give you a good idea of how long these clear aligners will take for you (or if you are a good candidate at all) when you come in for your consultation with Dr. Bram. But here’s one thing we can tell you: the sooner you get started, the quicker you’ll get to enjoy your new smile.
There’s no need to put up with all the embarrassment caused by crooked, crowded, or gapped teeth. Request your Invisalign clear aligners consultation appointment in Bayside, NY by calling 718-395-5331 today!
