Today, we're excited to tell you all about one of our most popular services: Invisalign!
At Mint Kisco Dental, we're proud to offer Invisalign as a safe and effective orthodontic treatment option. Here's everything you need to know:
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is an innovative orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible when worn, making them a more attractive option for many patients.
Advantages of Invisalign:
One of the biggest advantages of Invisalign is its aesthetics. Because the aligners are clear, you can go about your daily life with confidence, knowing that your orthodontic treatment is virtually undetectable. Invisalign aligners are also more comfortable than metal braces, as they don't have any sharp or protruding edges. Plus, they're removable, which means you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss.
How Invisalign Works
The Invisalign treatment process at Mint Kisco Dental begins with a consultation with Dr. Bottino and our team. We'll take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create a 3D model of your mouth. Using this model, we'll develop a custom treatment plan that outlines the movements your teeth will make throughout the treatment process. You'll receive a set of clear aligners, which you'll wear for about 22 hours per day, switching to a new set every 1-2 weeks. Over time, the aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
Who is a Good Candidate for Invisalign?
Invisalign can address a wide range of orthodontic issues, including mild to moderate crowding, spacing, and bite problems. However, it may not be the best choice for everyone. During your consultation with Dr. Bottino at Mint Kisco Dental, we'll evaluate your oral health and discuss your treatment goals to determine whether Invisalign is right for you.
To maintain good oral hygiene during your Invisalign treatment, it's important to brush and floss regularly. You should also clean your aligners daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and lukewarm water. Be sure to avoid eating or drinking anything other than water while wearing your aligners, as this can damage them and affect your treatment progress.
At Mint Kisco Dental, we believe that everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile. That's why we're proud to offer Invisalign as a safe and effective option for our patients.
