Braces and Invisalign in NYC
What is Invisalign?
Want straight teeth without the look of braces? Invisalign can help! Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic technology that created healthy, beautiful smiles without metal brackets or wires. Instead, custom designed clear plastic aligners are fitted snugly around your teeth, slowly and safely moving them into their correct positions.
Invisalign technology creates a discreet, subtle appearance that diminishes the appearance of orthodontia, providing a sleek, professional look loved by teens and working professional adults of all ages.

How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign uses state-of-the-art technology to safely and effectively move teeth without any permanent metal brackets or wires. Instead, your orthodontist will custom create a series of clear aligner trays, which fit snugly over your teeth and gradually shift them into their proper positions.
Each set of aligners is worn 1-2 weeks, before moving onto a new set: each one is carefully designed for your unique case. The aligners are removable, comfortable, and designed to fit snugly against your teeth.
There are no food restrictions with Invisalign: remove for meals and eat anything you like! Removable orthodontia means Invisalign is easy to clean, by brushing and soaking, and easy to brush and floss your teeth as well.
Depending on the specifics of your case, your orthodontist may use SmartForce™ attachments, small buttons that affix to several teeth to give the aligners added force.

Types of Braces
Interested in braces? You’ve got options! There are quite a few braces options, each with a unique set of benefits!
Metal braces are the original form of braces, developed over hundreds of years of research and development. They use metal brackets affixed to each tooth, connected by a flexible, thin wire which allows the orthodontist to slowly and safely move each tooth into its correct position. The brackets are secured to the wire using elastic rubber bands, which come in many colors and offer a fun personalized accessory option for kids and adults alike!
Ceramic or clear braces are another braces option: instead of metal brackets, these use clear or tooth-colored ceramic brackets attach to the teeth, which blend seamlessly with the teeth for a more natural appearance. This discreet look makes ceramic braces a more appealing option for older teens and adults.
Lingual braces, also known as Incognito® braces, employ a different method: these use metal brackets affixed on the inside of the teeth, facing the tongue, which makes them much less visible from the outside. Lingual braces may be more effective on the bottom teeth than top teeth; talk to your orthodontist about which braces are best for you.
