A Straighter Smile With Invisalign

Getting a straighter smile with Invisalign® is possible with your Brooklyn, NY, dentists, Dr. Ayanna Poindexter and Dr. Chanel Trice at Ryerson Smiles.

What Invisalign Does

With Invisalign, you'll get a collection of clear aligners that go over your teeth. Your Invisalign dentist in Brooklyn, NY, takes digital impressions of your teeth with precise measurements to make these aligners so they fit perfectly in your mouth. You must wear them in sequence so each aligner can place pressure on certain teeth at the right time to shift them gradually.

What Invisalign can fix

Invisalign gives you a straighter smile no matter what categorization of misalignment occurs naturally in your smile. Common issues with alignment that Invisalign can fix are:

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Overjet
  • Crowded teeth

Your Brooklyn, NY, Invisalign specialist takes note of the specific issues in your smile and shows you how Invisalign can fix them.

How to get a straighter smile with Invisalign

To make sure you finish your treatment with Invisalign in the time your dentist quotes to you, you need to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day, including your hours of sleep. You should switch aligners every 1-2 weeks while keeping them in their correct order.

You should continue to brush your teeth after every meal and floss between them while using Invisalign. Eating and drinking anything other than water requires you to remove your aligners, and you should rinse them off before putting them back in.

As long as you follow all instructions while using your aligners, you can finish your orthodontic treatment in a shorter time than you would with braces. Plus, Invisalign is generally more comfortable than wearing braces and you don't have to make changes to your diet.

Wearing clear aligners is easy, and you'll have a straighter smile with Invisalign in no time. At Ryerson Smiles, Dr. Ayanna Poindexter and Dr. Chanel Trice can plan your orthodontic alignment. Schedule an appointment with your Brooklyn, NY, dentist today: call (718) 638-3232.
