Braces have been the go-to solution for correcting misaligned teeth for years, but they may not be the ideal choice for everyone. Invisalign offers a concealable, comfortable alternative that puts patients in control and lets them enjoy the smile straightening process. At Midtown Manhattan Dental Arts, our New York, NY specialists are eager to guide you on your orthodontic journey and see you achieve optimal results.

What Is Invisalign®?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of custom-made, clear aligners to gently and gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions. These aligners are made of a smooth, BPA-free plastic material that is virtually invisible when worn, making them an excellent choice for adults and teens who desire a more discreet option for straightening their teeth.
The Invisalign® Process
The Invisalign process at Midtown Manhattan Dental Arts is simple and streamlined. It begins with a thorough consultation with one of our Invisalign specialists, who will evaluate your unique dental needs and determine if Invisalign is the right treatment option for you. If you are deemed a suitable candidate, digital impressions of your teeth will be taken in order to create your customized treatment plan.
Your custom aligners will be fabricated in the Invisalign lab using advanced 3D printing technology, ensuring a precise fit. Once we receive them, you will revisit our office to hear the details of your treatment plan.
- You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before switching to the next set in the series. This gradual progression helps guide your teeth into their desired positions with minimal discomfort.
- Periodic check-ups with our team will ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned and that any necessary adjustments can be made.
Benefits Of Invisalign®
Invisalign offers numerous advantages over traditional braces, including:
- Discreet appearance: The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without drawing attention to your treatment.
- Comfort: The smooth, custom-made aligners fit snugly around your teeth, eliminating the discomfort associated with metal brackets and wires.
- Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, making it easy to maintain your oral hygiene and enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions.
- Predictable results: With the help of advanced 3D imaging and planning, you can see your expected results even before starting the treatment.
- Shorter treatment time: On average, Invisalign treatment takes about 12-18 months, which is typically shorter than the time required for traditional braces.
