In addition to being a discreet and minimally invasive alternative to traditional metallic braces, Invisalign clear aligner trays also offer a number of benefits that make it easier than ever to invest in a straighter, healthier smile. Dr. Joseph Sachs and Dr. Robert Cruz offer Invisalign and full dentistry services in New York, NY.

A Better Smile with Invisalign

The Invisalign system consists of a series of removable trays that help to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position and alignment. Because the trays can be removed for up to two hours per day, they help to address many of the problems with braces, such as eating and practicing your oral hygiene routine. You may continue to enjoy your favorite meals and brush and floss regularly, as long as you can commit to wearing the trays for the required time every day (up to 22 hours).

Each tray is worn for approximately two weeks and then replaced with the next tray in the series to accommodate the shifting position of your teeth. Depending on your situation and dental needs, the treatment period may be shorter than with traditional braces.

One of the biggest and most obvious benefits of Invisalign is that the trays are virtually undetectable while you are wearing them, so they won't disrupt your professional and personal life or require a major adjustment to your lifestyle.
