Dr. Andolino is a Certified Invisalign Provider in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted – without braces.
What is Invisalign®?
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment, as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign.
Why would I want Invisalign®?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. And, Invisalign doesn’t have any metal to cause mouth abrasions, so it is comfortable to wear and usually means you spend less time at Dr. Andolino’s NYC office getting adjustments.
How does Invisalign® work?
Our New York City patients wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Your teeth will move little by little, week by week as you replace one aligner with the next–– until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit the orthodontist about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months, with somewhere between 18 and 30 aligners worn during treatment.
From one of our patients:
Stephanie – Midtown Manhattan
Hello there! My name is Stephanie and I live in Midtown Manhattan. My Invisalign treatment, although short, has been a very exciting process. When I was a child I had braces for 2 years and when I finished and they were taken off, my orthodontist at the time told me I had to wear my retainers. I failed to do so and my teeth became crooked again, and my parents were mad at me.
Since my teeth had shifted, I was never pleased with my smile. So this past year I decided to try again with the new Invisalign system. When I first had the Invisalign aligners put on I was nervous that speaking was going to be difficult, but I was proven wrong and the aligners fit so accurately to my teeth that it literally felt like they were a part of my teeth. Yes, the first couple of hours I did feel the aligners because my teeth were starting to shift in to their proper space but it wasn’t nearly as painful as when I had my braces adjusted when I was a kid.
Being able to see the ClinCheck video on the Invisalign website and see how my teeth would be moving with each aligner change, I couldn’t have been more excited. Dr. Andolino, Melissa and Sunny all helped me in the process by making sure I was wearing my aligners and would send an email reminder on the days I was supposed to change into the new set. I now have 2 aligners left and I am so pleased with how smooth the process was and of course with my new straight beautiful smile!
