InvisalignIf you are a teenager or adult, metallic braces are probably not an ideal option. But you don't have to settle for less than perfect teeth or live with bite and alignment issues that may be affecting your smile and oral health. Invisalign offers a discreet and effective solution to fix your smile without having to commit to braces for close to two years. Dr. Gregory Mark, the dentist at Forest Hills Dental in the Rego Park, NY, area offers Invisalign as an option to correct certain orthodontic problems.

Straighten Your Teeth with Invisalign in Rego Park, NY

Clear aligner trays are a discreet and minimally invasive alternative to braces, making them a great choice if you are worried about how traditional braces might affect your social and professional life and lifestyle. But they also offer many other benefits for your comfort and oral health.

The Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligner Trays

The trays are removable for up to two hours each day, so you can continue to practice your normal oral hygiene routine and brush and floss as normal after every meal. This also makes it possible to continue to enjoy your favorite foods, without worrying about the dietary restrictions that often come with braces. If you grind your teeth, Invisalign can even act as a default night guard to help protect your teeth from additional wear and tear.

How Invisalign Works

In some cases, the treatment period may be shorter than with traditional braces. The trays are custom designed to gradually shift your teeth into the desired alignment, with a series of trays that are each worn for approximately two weeks and then discarded for the next tray.
