Invisalign® Braces are easy-to-wear aligners that can treat a large range of orthodontic problems and are an alternative option for adult and teen braces candidates. Patients change aligners every two weeks, gradually straightening and aligning teeth. Today, Invisalign® can treat a wide variety of dental ailments.

Braces are indicated when there's any malalignment in teeth. It could be from individuals as young as 6 to 8 years of age upwards to any age as an adult. Here at Greater Long Island Dental, we offer traditional braces, which are brackets and bands and wires, and we also offer Invisalign Orthodontics for our adult and teenage patients. Invisalign braces are a series of clear overlay aligners. They are computer generated. Each aligner has a built-in prescription which will selectively move a patient's teeth to the desired location. They are indicated for our teenage patients as well as a lot of our adult patients. Patient reaction to Invisalign has been phenomenal. They really love wearing them. The results we get with them are phenomenal. The technology over the past five to seven years has really just expanded dramatically the cases that we can treat. Years ago, we were limited in the amount of cases we can treat, but now we can virtually treat any case with Invisalign Orthodonotics. Invisalign requires a follow-up typically every six weeks. The patients are seen at six week intervals. Every six weeks we give them six weeks worth of aligners, and we instruct them to change their aligners every two weeks. At the end of every two weeks, the aligner movement is complete, and they're given a new aligner at that point to move forward with their case. An average case typically will last between four and eight months with Invisalign therapy. The next step for anyone interested in Invisalign is they can contact our office and schedule an appointment where we can review their case. We can even take some preliminary digital images with iTero and give them an idea what their case would look like upon completion of the Invisalign therapy.
