Creating Custom Solutions to Correct Your Smile
Achieving the smile of your dreams is closer within your reach than ever before, thanks to the dedication of the Greater Long Island Dental team to making exceptional dental care affordable. Orthodontic treatment can radically improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Using Invisalign® invisible braces, our Long Island team can transform your smile from ordinary to extraordinary.
Invisalign® is an innovative treatment that straightens a patient's teeth and adjusts his or her bite through the use of clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners. Your aligners will be crafted to the exact specifications of your mouth so that they fit comfortably and work efficiently. If your teeth are overcrowded, unevenly spaced, or otherwise misaligned, Invisalign® may provide an ideal solution. To determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Invisalign® treatment, we urge you to schedule an appointment at our Long Island dental office today.
What to Expect
Your journey toward achieving a straighter, more stunning smile begins as soon as you schedule a comprehensive consultation with Dr. James Woltmann. You can expect to discuss your cosmetic goals and objectives for treatment during this initial appointment. We will also conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, evaluating the condition of your gums, teeth, bite, and jaw while checking for abnormalities. Through this meticulous process, we will determine whether Invisalign® is the treatment best suited to your unique case.
How the Treatment Works
If you are deemed to be a good candidate for Invisalign® invisible braces, then X-rays and digital images will be taken of your mouth to assist Dr. Woltmann in planning your treatment. He will submit the data he gathers to the Invisalign® laboratory, where a series of aligners will be custom-crafted specifically for you. Over time, the aligners will gently but surely guide your teeth toward their optimal positions within your mouth. Approximately every two weeks, you will replace the aligner you are currently wearing with the next aligner in the series. The length of your treatment will depend on the extent of your orthodontic needs; however, most patients achieve their desired results in between one and two years.
Our team works with patients to make Invisalign® cost as affordable as possible. Greater Long Island Dental in Massapequa offers financing options through CareCredit®, and also offers traditional orthodontic treatment that may be more convenient and affordable for some patients. In general, however, the cost of Invisalign® treatment is comparable to the cost of traditional braces.
Benefits of Invisible Braces
Our dentists are able to treat a wider range of complex alignment cases thanks to recent advances in dental technology, including improvements to the Invisalign® system. Among other benefits, Invisalign® aligners are:
- Removable, allowing you to brush, floss, and eat a variety of foods with ease
- Virtually invisible
- Comfortable to wear at all times of the day
- Customized to fit only your smile
- Plastic, not metal
- Easy to clean and care for
- Cost effective
Overall, Invisalign offers an aesthetically pleasing alternative to the metal brackets and wires of traditional orthodontia with much of the same power.
