At the Westchester County Dental Clinic, Paul J. Guerrino DDS PC employs a wide range of specialists under one roof. Our patients can seek unique cosmetic and surgical dental procedures without having to travel to an unfamiliar location. Patients who require orthodontic work can turn to our Invisalign dentist for Invisalign teeth straightening.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to teeth straightening. There are no metal brackets to attach and no metal wires to tighten, making Invisalign the only treatment that is removable and comfortable. Best of all, others will not even know that you are straightening your teeth. This process is carried out using a set of customized, plastic, transparent trays.
How Treatment Works
The average total treatment time for Invisalign patients is 9-15 months and patients use between 18 and 30 aligners during that time period. Our Invisalign dentist custom crafts each tray to be used for two weeks. You will only remove the tray to brush, floss, eat, and drink. After two weeks of wearing the tray, you will replace it with the next tray in the series. Each replacement causes teeth to move little-by-little, week-by-week, until they have straightened into their final positions. You will meet with our Invisalign dentist roughly once every six weeks to ensure that teeth are progressing as planned.
An Alternative to Traditional Braces
Traditional braces use metal wires and brackets that rub against the gums and cause cheek abrasions. Individuals with braces also have difficulty brushing and flossing around braces, which causes teeth to become permanently stained. Invisalign trays, on the other hand, are pain-free and completely removable. Since Invisalign trays are also invisible, nobody will know that you are undergoing these treatments.
