Is Invisalign Treatment Right for Me?

Find out how Invisalign works to give adults and teens the smiles they’ve always wanted. 


It’s never too late to close up gaps between teeth and to achieve a straighter smile. In fact, thanks to all the advancements in dental technology, patients have more and more discreet ways to fix “bad bites” and other problems. Here in New York, NY, our orthodontist Dr. Frank Andolino has fitted many teens and adults with Invisalign. Is Invisalign right for you? Let’s take a look.


Treatable Cases with Invisalign

While nearly invisible braces can certainly be appealing they aren’t right for everyone. This unique orthodontic treatment is geared towards older teens and adults who want to fix their crooked smiles without feeling self-conscious about their braces. These clear aligners can be used to treat,


  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding


If you are dealing with minor to moderate malocclusions or misalignment issues then it’s time to talk with our New York orthodontist about whether Invisalign might be the best way to get your dream smile.


Getting Invisalign 

There are several steps involved in getting Invisalign. These steps include,


  • Undergoing a consultation with Doctor Andolino to examine your smile, discuss your treatment goals and to see if you are an ideal candidate for treatment. Even if you aren’t right for Invisalign we offer other ways to get a straighter smile.

  

  • Mapping out your treatment plan with our orthodontist to ensure that you get the results you want through Invisalign. We will take scans of your teeth, which are turned into 3D images. From these images we will use special computer technology to shift teeth into the ideal spot. This information will help a dental lab create the right set of aligners to gradually move teeth around.

  

  • Getting fitted for your first set of aligners to make sure they fit properly. We will also provide you with instructions on everything from how to care for your aligners to how often you should wear them every day to achieve results. It’s natural to have questions about your next orthodontic treatment so be sure to come in with all of your questions so you know exactly what to expect.

  

  • Coming in every 4-6 weeks throughout the course of your treatment to make sure that everything is progressing properly and to address any questions or concerns you might have.
