Affordable Braces & Invisalign Near You in Flatbush
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign clear aligners are a form of orthodontic appliance that uses transparent clear trays rather than metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth.
Metal braces are the original form of orthodontic care – but when Invisalign clear aligners came along, they changed everything. Invisalign offers all the effectiveness of traditional braces, without the noticeable metal in your mouth.
Using patented technology, Invisalign clear aligners provide gentle, precise tooth movements, using SmartTrack™ material for a comfortable, convenient fit. The aligners are removable, so you can eat anything you want, simply taking out the aligners for meals!
Invisalign has helped millions of people transform their smiles, with clear, convenient, attractive aligners.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign transformed the orthodontic experience. Instead of getting metal braces permanently bonded on the teeth during treatment, Invisalign uses removable clear plastic aligners that fit over your teeth and provide gradual, all-around movement to gently and safely move the teeth to their correct positions.
Only Invisalign uses SmartTrack™ material, a patented plastic designed by Invisalign that is clinically-proven to move teeth faster and with more precision than other materials.
Invisalign treatment may also use SmartForce™ attachments, small button-like holds that attach to the teeth to give the aligners added grip.
Invisalign clear aligners are removable: take out for meals, wash and soak easily to keep clean, and don’t worry about staining underneath permanent brackets! Your appearance is not disrupted with metal brackets and wires – the nearly invisible aligners provide a discreet appearance that many patients prefer, especially working adults.
Not all orthodontic providers are experienced with Invisalign: look for highly-ranked, experienced orthodontists who have the most expertise straightening teeth with this advanced clear aligner technology.

Types of Braces
Did you know? There are many forms of braces treatment!
Metal braces are the original form of braces, but there are several other forms of braces to know about, too!
Metal braces use metal brackets and a thin, flexible wire, to slowly and precisely move the teeth into their correct positions. The orthodontist controls the movements of the teeth with a carefully designed plan that safely aligns the smile. The brackets and wire are secured by small elastic rubber bands – choose from many different colors, representing your favorite sports team, school colors, or seasonal shades!
Ceramic braces use similar technology, but instead of metal brackets, they use clear or ceramic brackets that blend into your smile much more discreetly. They are either transparent or tooth-colored, for a mature, discreet design that many older teens and adults prefer. Clear or ceramic braces provide all the effectiveness of metal braces, with a subtler appearance.
Incognito® or lingual braces offer great results using a different design: these braces go behind the teeth for treatment that you can’t even see from the outside! This design works better on bottom teeth than top teeth, but can offer excellent results for a variety of dental issues.
Whichever treatment you choose, you can trust excellent results when supervised by an expert, professional orthodontist.
