When it comes to correcting bites and straightening smiles, braces is the way to go. Orthodontic treatment is meant to correct problems that may cause dental problems due to general strain or the formation of teeth, and while orthodontics may yield positive cosmetic results it is not always the main goal of the treatment. It is, however, a huge point with patients, and there are many people out there who would prefer more subtle braces than the more obvious, metal ones. Here with our orthodontist, Gary Herskovits, DDS, you may be able to go with an alternative solution. Dr. Herskovits may be able to provide you with Brooklyn Invisalign braces if you happen to be eligible for this procedure.
Invisalign is a completely unique way of straightening teeth in that it is considered to be a type of braces but they look nothing at all like the kind most people imagine when they hear the word. Braces are often thought of as obvious in appearance and made of metal, which is true of traditional braces. While traditional braces are the most often prescribed, there are other options out there, such as Brooklyn Invisalign braces. Invisalign braces work similar to traditional braces in that they use the power of physics to gently guide teeth into a healthier formation but it does so in a way that does not require brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays made of plastic that are molded to fit over your teeth. Every two weeks or so, Gary Herskovits, DDS will have you fitted for a new set of aligners that are slightly different than the last so as to facilitate the movement of your teeth over time. Aside from being extremely subtle in appearance, Invisalign braces are also very convenient when it comes to overall maintenance as well.
If you are interested in getting dental braces to fix a specific problem, our orthodontist Gary Herskovits, DDS is here to help. You may just be eligible for Brooklyn Invisalign braces that can provide you with the smile that you want without anyone else even knowing that you have braces at all!
