Transform your child's smile with the clear alternative to braces.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are a modern orthodontic treatment designed to straighten your child’s teeth. Since their introduction as an alternative to metal braces, Invisalign aligners have become one of the most common treatments done by our orthodontist in Staten Island. They’re nearly invisible, completely removable, and extremely comfortable.
Is your teen concerned about the looks they’ll get from having metal braces? Invisalign aligners are industry-known for their discreet appearance. And with that little discretion comes freedom. Freedom for your child to smile in photos, freedom to eat whatever they want, and the overall freedom to be themselves again. And all the while their teeth are progressing towards perfection.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Invisalign can comfortably correct a variety of imperfections your teen may have like: crowded teeth, overbites, underbites, crossbites, gaps, and open bites. There are no surprises with Invisalign as treatment is visualized and fully computerized by our orthodontist in Staten Island, meaning your child will already know what their teeth will look like at the end of treatment.
In addition, Invisalign is removable and practically invisible allowing your child to enjoy food and sports and life without the hassles of metal braces. Overall oral hygiene is easier, and Invisalign wearers generally have less damage to the teeth and gums.
Invisalign treatment is typically faster by 6 months or up to 1 year when compared to braces. And did we forget to mention that average Invisalign costs are up to $2,000 less than many traditional orthodontic treatments?
What happens after Invisalign treatment?
Retention is the final phase of most orthodontic treatment and Invisalign is no different. Our orthodontist in Staten Island will have specific instructions for your child on how often they will need to wear their retainer.
