Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners.
It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth. Invisalign® combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by Dr. Dongjin Lee and Dr. Min Jung Kim. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions into a series of finely calibrated aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually – week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained.
Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. To discuss Invisalign® in the New York, NY area, please feel free to contact our office to schedule an appointment.
