What Is Invisalign Treatment?
Properly aligned, straight teeth not only offer a beautiful smile, but they are generally healthier and easier to keep clean. Dental problems (such as crowded teeth or a misaligned bite) could create subsequent, and expensive, dental health complications for Stony Brook, Commack, and Coram, NY residents. To help people reap the benefits of a healthy, beautiful grin, NowDental of Suffolk is thrilled to offer Invisalign orthodontics to adults and teenagers in Smithtown, NY. The Invisalign treatment process straightens teeth by way of removable, nearly invisible aligner trays, allowing for a less noticeable appearance and a convenient alternative to traditional braces. Explore whether Invisalign clear aligners are a great choice for your treatment goals by booking a visit to our Smithtown, NY office.

Should I Get Invisalign Aligners?
Teenagers and adults who want a discreet alternative to metal braces could be ideal candidates for Invisalign orthodontics. This solution can be well-suited for treating poor tooth alignment (an underbite, crossbite, open bite, or overbite), a narrow arch, crooked or crowded teeth, or spaces between teeth. Taking care of such conditions might improve comfort, jaw function, and ease of eating and speaking. Clear aligners are also simple to remove from the mouth, allowing our patients to enjoy their favorite foods with no dietary restrictions and care for their teeth without cumbersome appliances interfering with their efforts. During your appointment at NowDental of Suffolk, a team member will take dental x-rays and then perform an assessment to ascertain if Invisalign aligners are an ideal choice for your goals.
How Do Invisalign Aligners Work?
Invisalign treatments function through a custom set of clear, removable teeth aligners that progressively guide your teeth into their appropriate position. To begin your orthodontic treatment, our Smithtown, NY staff will take an impression of your upper and lower arches, which will be sent to a dedicated laboratory where your custom clear aligner trays will be crafted. When these aligner trays are sent to our facility, our team will ask you to return to collect your initial pair and receive instructions for wearing them. Your aligner trays must be worn for no less than 20 – 22 hours each day and only taken out before brushing, flossing your teeth, eating snacks or meals, or drinking liquids. Approximately every 7 – 14 days, you should change out your current pair of aligners for the next in the series. One of our team members will help you set up regular follow-up visits so our expert Invisalign provider can evaluate your treatment results.
What Can I Expect After Invisalign Treatment?
The time spent undergoing Invisalign treatment will differ according to your specific cosmetic goals and needs; however, most teens and adults tend to wear their removable, clear Invisalign aligner trays for approximately 1 – 2 years. Once your orthodontic care is complete, it's vital to prevent unwanted shifting by utilizing a set of custom retainers. When your retainers are delivered to NowDental of Suffolk, a member of our staff will speak with you about when you should wear your retainers, as well as ways to maintain them. We will continually evaluate the positioning of your teeth and your bite during your regular dental exams.
Are Invisalign Aligners Covered by Insurance?
Teeth straightening with Invisalign treatment may be partially covered under certain dental insurance policies. Prior to your treatment, one of our financial coordinators can take a look at your plan's benefits and talk with you about any out-of-pocket treatment costs. NowDental of Suffolk is pleased to take a wide selection of payment options, like easy payment plans and low-interest healthcare financing, to help make orthodontic care even more cost-effective and convenient for Smithtown, NY patients.
