The Park Slope Dental Arts team is proud to offer Invisalign services to our patients. We aim to make your smile become the center of attention for years to come. This, combined with proper oral health care can keep your teeth looking and feeling their best. Most people have a general idea or have heard of invisible "braces", or Invisalign. Invisalign is a minimally invasive orthodontic treatment to straighten crooked teeth, providing patients with a more comfortable experience. In comparison to traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are created specifically for you. Working closely with the team at Park Slope Dental Arts, we can help provide a custom treatment plan that works for you.
The Invisalign process begins by taking x-rays, pictures and impressions of your teeth. The Invisalign technology then creates a digital 3D image of your teeth, providing exact measurements to create a custom, comfortable fit. From these specific images, the professional dental team at Park Slope Dental Arts will help you establish a treatment plan that includes information on how your teeth move, and give an approximate time length of treatment. Additionally, this state-of-the-art technology allows us to show patients a virtual representation of the end result. Although each situation is different, often the length of time for adults is about one year. For teens, it may be longer but much less invasive than traditional metal braces. Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of smooth, BPA free clear aligners are custom made for you. Every two weeks, patients will receive a new set of aligners, advancing to the next stage of the treatment plan. The aligners are made to wear throughout the day, but are removed while eating, and while brushing and flossing.
