Have you been thinking about having your teeth straightened, but do not relish the prospect of being seen in traditional braces for the next year or so? Today, many adults at our practice have their teeth straightened using the Invisalign teeth straightening system, which is virtually invisible to others during treatment. If this sounds like a great way for you to go, contact us for more information about our Maspeth Invisalign services.
At our practice, Michael J. Weiss & Associates, our expert and highly-trained doctor is Dr. Michael J. Weiss. Our practice was founded by Dr. Weiss in 1995. We provide exemplary yet affordable dental services in the areas of general, restorative and cosmetic dental care. Many of our adult patients come to us wanting to learn more about the Invisalign teeth straightening system. This system is actually a series of clear plastic aligners that are worn sequentially to provide a straightened and beautiful smile. When you are having treatment with our Maspeth Invisalign aligners, no one is able to see that you are wearing them – they are virtually invisible. Our patients love Invisalign because they can attend work meetings and social gatherings without anyone ever knowing that they are currently having orthodontic treatment. Treatment with Invisalign takes about the same amount of time as treatment with traditional metal braces.
Not all patients can be treated with the Maspeth Invisalign system. Our dentist will be able to evaluate if your bite can be corrected using this system of invisible braces. If our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, he will then take the steps needed to have your individual set of clear plastic aligners created. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, after which time you move on to the next aligner in the series. After you get through the entire series your teeth will be in the desired position to create your new, beautiful smile. Patients love the fact that they can eat anything they want during treatment because the aligners are removed for eating. The Invisalign aligners are also removed for teeth cleaning. So, when you reach the end of your treatment, your teeth are not only properly aligned but healthy and beautiful as well. If you would like to learn if you are a good candidate for Invisalign, make an appointment to come in and be seen by Dr. Weiss.
