Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign is a modern alternative to braces. Rather than using wires, brackets, and elastic bands to straighten your smile, Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic trays. These trays look similar to a retainer or a night guard, and gently move your teeth toward a healthier position.

Invisalign can correct many of the same problems as braces. However, it’s invisible when worn and will not affect your speech or appearance. Invisalign can also be removed to brush and floss and to eat and drink. So unlike with braces, it’s easy to care for your teeth and keep them healthy, and there are no dietary restrictions.

What Invisalign Can Fix

Misaligned Smiles

If you have one or more misaligned or uneven teeth, Invisalign can be used to reposition your teeth and improve the overall balance and appearance of your smile.

Gaps In Teeth

Invisalign is ideal for closing up gaps in your teeth, and is particularly popular among people with a large gap between their front teeth.


Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile, and they affect your oral health, too. With Invisalign, you can straighten your teeth and feel proud of your smile. And straightening your crooked teeth also makes them easier to clean, so that’s a win-win!

Overbites & Underbites

Invisalign can be used to treat overbites, underbites, crossbites, and other mild-to-moderate bite problems.

Benefits of Invisalign

Nearly Invisible Design

One of the most appealing aspects of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without the aesthetic impact of metal braces. This makes Invisalign a popular choice for adults and teens who are concerned about the visibility of their orthodontic treatment.

Enhanced Comfort and Convenience

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to fit snugly over your teeth, reducing irritation commonly caused by the brackets and wires of traditional braces. Additionally, the aligners are removable, which means you can eat, drink, brush, and floss with ease. This flexibility allows for a more comfortable and convenient treatment experience.

Predictable Treatment with Advanced Technology

Invisalign treatment involves advanced 3D imaging technology to map out the entire treatment plan from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. This technology allows for more precise and predictable results. Plus, you can visualize every stage of the process and see potential outcomes before the treatment even begins. It’s a clear and motivating visual of your upcoming smile transformation.

Got Questions About Invisalign?

How Does Invisalign Compare To Traditional Braces?

Compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is more comfortable and more convenient. It doesn’t affect your appearance, and you can brush, floss, eat, and drink normally during treatment. There also are no wires or metal components to poke and irritate your mouth. Invisalign also usually offers faster results than braces for qualified patients.

Can Invisalign Treat Severe Cases?

In most cases, the answer is no. Invisalign treatment is more versatile and powerful than ever. But in some cases, you may be better off with braces. Braces and other traditional orthodontic treatments are ideal for treating complex bite problems and severely crooked teeth.

Am I A Good Candidate For Invisalign?

If your mouth is healthy and you have minor to moderate orthodontic problems, Invisalign from Dr. Jagirdar at Flatiron Dental may be right for you. Contact us today to see if you’re a good candidate for Invisalign treatment in New York City.

How Often Do I Need to Wear My Invisalign Aligners?

Invisalign aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day to achieve the best results. It's important to only remove them for meals, snacks, and your oral hygiene routine, which includes brushing and flossing. Maintaining this level of discipline ensures that your treatment stays on track and may even shorten the overall timeline. Your commitment to wearing the aligners as prescribed is essential for the success of the treatment, and any deviations from this schedule can delay progress and extend the treatment time.

Can I See My Treatment Results Before Starting Invisalign?

Yes, one of the most exciting features of Invisalign is the ability to see your potential treatment results before starting. Using advanced 3D imaging technology, Dr. Jagirdar will create a precise treatment plan that includes a virtual representation of the movements your teeth will go through. This technology not only shows you the final outcome but also provides a step-by-step preview of how your smile will transform throughout the treatment. This visualization can be incredibly motivating and reassuring, giving you a clear picture of the expected results and boosting your confidence in the treatment plan.

What Is the Duration of Invisalign Treatment?

The duration of Invisalign treatment varies significantly depending on the individual's dental needs and how closely the treatment plan is followed. On average, treatment typically lasts between 12 to 18 months, though it can be shorter for less complex cases or slightly longer for more involved adjustments. During your treatment, you'll have regular check-ups, generally every 6 to 8 weeks, to make sure that your teeth are moving according to plan and to make any necessary adjustments to the aligners.

What Should I Do If I Lose or Break an Invisalign Aligner?

If you lose or break an Invisalign aligner, it's important to contact Dr. Jagirdar immediately. Depending on the timing of your treatment cycle, Dr. Jagirdar might recommend wearing a previous set of aligners to maintain your teeth’s current position while a replacement is made. If you were close to switching to a new set, she may advise you to move on to the next set of aligners early. It is crucial to handle this situation promptly to prevent any delays in your treatment progress. Always keep your previous sets of aligners as a backup, and avoid any gap in your treatment to ensure the best results.
